Which bridges to cross and which bridges to burn..??

Life is all about knowing which bridges to cross and which bridges to burn.

In the realm of life’s sojourn where we learn life's lessons - big or small, we either let our wisdom and experience take the decision or leave it to serendipity. The problem is that what we consider major could actually be temporary situations on which we mostly end up taking firm final decisions, when we should not and tend to ignore the ones that actually seek our complete attention. Eventually, both matter in deciding the further course of our life's journey. While we win some, we lose some. The real challenge lies in knowing when to fight and when to walk away. It calls for a realm filled with rationalization, logic and practicality with no room for emotions to decide which are the one's, one needs to fight for and which are the one's you've to let go.

We all have our pasts that has left an imprint on us and we hang on to it. Releasing the past is essential and one of the most daunting task which doesn't come easy. We must "Move on" for that's the mantra of life. At the same time, letting go off past that we've clung onto so long doesn't come in that easy on self. For this you who got to be strong enough mentally to take a firm decision on it - learn the lessons from the past and ignore the rest for you're not looking that way again, if you want to surge ahead. At this very juncture, you got to decide the hardest decision of your life on "which bridge to cross and which to burn.” If you do not take a stance at this level, you tend to stay rooted to ground zero which ends up being detrimental.

Do introspect at length and weigh all aspects of your realm before you make the final choice. Once you've sought the answers to all your questions; do not halt. ACT and deal with the situation: Burn the bridge; Cross the bridge or create and take a new path altogether. The choice is all yours. At the same time, do not hold on for so long that you miss out on all the many doors that opened for you while you were busy thinking..!!

Life is full of contrariness and tautness that exacts all your will and strength to make you who you're. When you're in the midst of a storm and the wind doesn't blow your way; you need to adjust your sails, change direction and continue with your journey. That's Life..!!

So… What bridges in your life are the ones you want to burn n' which bridges do you have to build and cross, eh..?! Ask yourself..!!

Never compromise yourself..!!

When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

Remember that we all live our own lives. We do not live the life of another. For us to reach our pre-ordained destiny and realize our dreams, there will be many critics in life whom we have to put them on "ignore" mode; be it their insults, opinions and judgments - you’ll have to cast them all aside. For if you do not; then it means you are letting them control your life. The outcome is such that you would become so estranged from yourself and feel like the real YOU is trapped inside you screaming to let it out. Do you want to go through such myriad of emotions? NO. So, exclude yourself from all such people who create nothing but instigate you, pollute your mind and create mayhem with a whole lot of drama in your life just to add spice to their entertainment.

As Ayn Rand rightfully says "I need no warrant for being, and no word of sanction upon my being. I am the warrant and the sanction."; isn't this true..?? This should be the guiding principle of all our lives.

To live your life in your own terms, first you need to have a strong sense of your self within, evoke your consciousness at the deepest level and take only radical n' practical decisions as is the need of the hour.It is important that you do not let the vagaries of life leave their imprints on you. Learn from them; unlearn and relearn if you've to.. it's a must..!! If you can ensure that you've defined your own boundaries and value system, which means that you essentially know who the real YOU is and can take care of your being; then you are equipped to take care of and hold the handle of your life.

Remember always ~
Don’t compromise yourself. You’re all you’ve got..!!
