I woke up staring at the shiny screen that popped out notifications, I buried my head within futile applications, and unknowingly cut myself from the real world – that didn’t feel like a life.
Honestly, I regret it.
When I grow old and look back at life, I want to be smiling
I fear losing life meaninglessly.
This thought dreads me somewhere inside. I don’t want to look back and feel like I could’ve lived more. I want every moment to matter.
Do something little. Really little. It’s not shameful.
When I look back at life, I realize that I’ve spent a lot of it trying to fight my insecurities to get a life I deserve.
In fact, I’ve spent a huge chunk of life feeling vulnerable, while trying to defeat the blurred thoughts in my mind which keep me restless, making me realize that I’m not good at a lot of things.

We all have dreams and passions – those which can be easily believed, and those which we don’t reveal to avoid making a joke of ourselves.
Some dreams might seem enormous – hard to achieve and beyond your reach. Somewhat close to impossible, or unbelievably hard. You crave them and know for sure that it’s what you want to do. Still you don’t take a step further.
Following your passion seems risky. Mostly because you think you aren’t capable and worthy of achieving it, yet.
Firstly, people don’t want to be seen as fools.
I mean no wants to be the social oddball who is seen as a dreamer. People think of themselves as dreamers, but they don’t want to be called one.
Being a dreamer makes you vulnerable all at once. Everyone comes to know what you’re up to – your plans, your tiny aspirations, and your intentions – there’s no way out. (more…)
