What you know, you might not realize and what you realize you definitely know. The transition from knowing to realizing is a process we call life. A powerful word that summarizes everything between birth and death. We as humans have a tendency of generalizing things. But isn’t that unfair? Since the day we are born we are taught the ‘rules of life’, hence we struggle to ‘do the dos’ for as long as we live. But our experiences are not the same, our situations are not the same and what we learn from our actions (our realizations) that form the backbone of our character and personality are not the same. Then how is it fair to compare or compete with another life?
We are all a part of a big rat race, where everyone is trying to leave the others behind. It probably makes perfect sense in this materialistic world. But I often wonder, all this competition is based on what? On what grounds are we measuring one’s capabilities? Doesn’t it feel all superficial? And what about the ones who are left behind in the race? These thoughts haunt me, probably because I too have a long way to catch up with the rest of the world.
This comes from a backbencher. Honestly, these words have been playing in my mind for a very longtime, but until now I could never come to terms with it. I felt I’d be a looser to call myself a backbencher. But I tell you what, I feel a sense of relief in me. And now that I think about it, it’s been a wonderful experience to have come so far being who I am.
You can’t judge a fish by how fast it climbs a tree. Every person is a genius, provided you find the genius self in you. Well, I am not an expert; I am just talking from my experiences so far. I have spent too much time trying to be in the game. Only if I’d have spent some time trying to understand what I am really good at, I’d have had it all figured out by now. So yes, I don’t have it all figured out yet. But what’s the hurry? Who sets my deadline? NO ONE!
Someone once told me, “there are things you need to do for the things you want to do”. And these words keep me going, only that I don’t know what I really want to do just yet. But I am certain I’ll get there someday, till then let’s just enjoy the freeway ride.
