At what point is enough, enough?!


To the extent to which a man is rational, life is the premise directing his actions. To the extent to which he is irrational, the premise directing his actions is death.
~ Ayn Rand

Gone are the days of bliss of us being young and innocent; where we day dreamed of life without pain, without fear, without loss. With the growing years, we transformed to become individuals who we are today but in its true essence we are a far cry, a distinct identity of our former younger self. Sometimes it's tiring to be always strong in this game called life. One might conceal it by masking it externally but what about the lava erupting within you? Somewhere, the limits need to be drawn. Was the transformation a must? YES. That's the rule of the realm we live in but how much of change should we allow to permeate within us? Agreed, change is the only constant in all our lives but changing our individuality to adapt to it constantly is not a way to handle change. We have to put on a period of finality to it else one day we will not be able to identify with our own reflection. Life can be compared to an iron, no one can destroy it but it's own rust can likewise it's only us, our mind sets and actions that can destroy us; nothing else can. Easier said than done, YES. But, we all have to learn this art at self control at some point of our life. Adapting to changes is an altogether different ball game but to change ourselves for it forever is detrimental for at the end we will fail to "define the "I"" in us at the end of our lifetime.

So, at what point is enough, enough?

I don't stop when I'm tired, I always stop when I've given in my best and I'm done. Period. There's no point wishing and hoping when none of your instincts support it. At such times, just pause wherever you're and leave it to time and let whatever happen, happen just on its own and deal with the outcome as and when you've to. Why complicate life on our own when there are so many other things calling for your attention in this roller coaster ride of life..?!

When you feel, you've done your able best and nothing can be done beyond and all your dreams have turned to dust... VACUUM..!!

As O.R. Melling, says "When you come to the edge of all, you will either have ground to stand on, or you will be given wings to fly" and if nothing amongst the two happens; its time to start afresh on a new path and change course altogether.

You are who you believe you are in life; there are no two thoughts to it..!! Your world is just your perspective; a collection of your principles and value system. Redefine your thoughts to see life from a different angle altogether when everything you've tried doesn't work for you, dream anew n' keep Moving On..!!

I end with one of my favorite quote from Arthur Conan Doyle, "Life is infinitely stranger than anything the mind could invent..."

Are true meaningful relations a passé..??

Science may have found a cure for most evils: but it has found no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. - Helen Keller
How right are her words..!!
Almost all of our sorrows spring out of our relations with other people. Do we really understand the meaning of true relations? Are we seeking them in the first place? Statistics reveal an alarming increase in divorce across the world, at high frequency where marriages get frizzled out in few days/months. Reason given is incompatibility. But, did you ever give it your full to the relation to make it work? How come our parents and fore fathers generations never faced this problem? Are we, too, demanding in our relations or highly impatient to adjust and adapt and draw conclusions at the drop of a hat? Nowadays, love has become a matter of chance, matrimony a matter of money and divorce a matter of course.
In this age where social networking has become prevalent over us; true meaningful relationships and friendship have…

Don't let a Season in your Life define your Lifetime..!!

“There seems to be a kind of order in the universe, in the movement of the stars and the turning of the earth and the changing of the seasons, and even in the cycle of human life. But human life itself is almost pure chaos. ~ Katherine Anne Porter
We are all here for a purpose. But, how many of us really do realize that the time is ripe and we are ready for to seek the purpose, if we haven't as yet? Instead of finding peace within us, we seek it in the realm outside. Such state of mind doesn't last long. Sooner or later in our life, as we look at the reflection in the mirror, we realize this question staring at us through our reflection. This is where begins the journey to define the "I" in us. No matter what be the nature of questions we pose, the answer might be sought then or through some signs that nature unveils in our path as we move on. Patience and endurance are the key factors. Truth remains, we are here on Planet Earth to touch each others lives while evolvi…

EXPECTATION - A Road block!

For a long time, I have given a lot of importance to relations in my life. While I gave all of me into every relation that I made in my life, somewhere in the remote corner of my mind was the creeping fact that I was not getting my due. This nagging thought troubled me a lot for a long time, till a dear friend of mine posed that as a rhetorical before me! For the kind of person I am, I dwelt deep on this and I started questioning myself. Why was I expecting to be reciprocated likewise in the first place? Why was I not just giving my all and getting done with it and by that I mean moving on with my life? In expecting, the reciprocation from the same person on whom I was showering love, care, affection and protection; I was also laying a base pre-condition of that he/she would do the same for me without asking for it. And, when they did not, it left me visibly hurt, affected my emotional balance and other relations. Had it not been for this conversation with this friend of mine, I would…
