I’ve been reminded a lot lately that life isn’t a sprint or a marathon or even a race.

Sometimes it moves quickly and sometimes slowly.

That’s what life is all about and will always be about. Even making the right choice doesn’t assure happiness, it may or may not take you to your destination. It is impossible to control the forces that act around us but we can try to the best of our ability.

So keep it simple! Take it one day at a time. Make a plan. Execute it! But don’t get all stressed up over it. Be flexible. Plan gets executed , fine! It doesn’t? No worries. Pick up and move on!

Set aside some time to reach your inner self. In the rush of your life try to set aside at least 10-15 min a day for yourself, the time when you spend alone, be it in the morning before starting your day or in the evening while reviewing the day. Trust me, it pays rich dividends!

Remember, life is a journey and all journeys have twist and turns !Sometimes you encounter diversions in the route and  isn’t it difficult to choose one road when you are unsure which route you want to take, with both being equally enticing and full of opportunities?!  Sometimes the choices we make may land us into catastrophes and sometimes they may help you reach even the moon! 

Sometimes it rains while sometimes it’s bright sunshine. Sometimes you meet people along this journey. Some of them stay throughout it whereas some leave when their part in your “story” is over. But, every such encounter brings a lesson along with, each and every one of which is life changing, even in the minutest of ways.

There will always be setbacks! There is always a villain, a nemesis , that we are scared to acknowledge and fight against. Don’t ever let this nemesis get the better of you. Acknowledge its presence in your life and try to deal with it the best you can. There is always help available at hand, be it in the form of a friend or your family. Remember, every setback in your life is just a way of life telling you that the method/path you approached isn’t the ideal one!

Dust yourself and pick yourself up and get ready for another bout because that is what life is all about: Utilising each and every opportunity that you get and making it count!

Embrace your life in its totality! .Grace it. Acknowledge it and let it shape you into all that you deserve to be!

Last but not the least always enjoy! Because life is nothing without a little bit of fun!
