But it is so hard
isn’t it? It’s practically impossible to stop and deviate from this mundane
routine we have grown to know as life! But is it that difficult really?
Think about it. What if I perish from this world tomorrow? What then? All the
plans and investments for the future, what good would they be of anyway? So
shouldn’t I stop? Infact shouldn’t we all stop and actually live for a change? So
I don’t know about you, but I sure need to make more time.
I need to stop and
take in the scent of the fresh air sweet. I need to get wet and play in the
rain. I need to laugh with my loved ones. I need to witness the everyday
miracles on this earth. But for all of these I need to make time!
I need to walk bare
feet on a white sandy beach. I need to see the waves recede. I need to feel the
chill of the winter wild. I need to play with the snow. So shouldn't I make
time for all of these?
I need to read all
the stories in every great book ever written. I need to write my story too. I
need to just stop and listen to my heart beat. I need to see the sweet smiles
that make me complete. Yes, for all these and more I need to make time!
I need to LIVE and
that would be my life’s greatest feat! I need to make each moment simple yet a
I need to listen to each of my heart's whispers. I need to watch the sun set. I need to see the starry skies. I need to write those unwritten poems. All this and more, much precious than some code flow!
I need to stop
running a race where the finish line forever recedes. I need to make time to smell the neglected rose growing in my balcony. I
need to make time for myself. I am precious too you know. I need to make time for
my desires and put my employer’s desires on the back-burner for a change. I need
to make time for people whose lives would stop if mine would.
I need to stop,
look around and take in as much as I can before it’s too late. I need to LIVE for its not every day
that the realization of life whirling away dawns! So will you join me? Will you STOP and LIVE too? Will you?
