What is life? Everyone has their own definition of life. But now a day’s many people try to live
up to the expectations and timelines of others instead of listening to themselves. As many of
them say, “Life is a race – agar tej nahi bhagoge toh piche reh jaoge”. But according to me life
is not a race it is a journey, a beautiful journey. And in this journey we travel through the
mountains and valleys (it means we all have ups and downs in our life).
It doesn’t matter how far we have gone on the wrong road we can still take the U-turn. Life
would be meaningful, only if we understand the true meaning of failure. No one is totally
perfect or no one is perfectly imperfect. Everyone has their own qualities, their own attitude,
their own likes and dislikes, then why do we end up listening to others. We should start loving
our own company, we should be proud of our own choices.
Let your smile change the world but don’t let the world change your smile. We should be smart
enough to holding on, but be brave enough to let go the things. Life is not about finding
yourself, but life is about creating yourself. So create yourself in such a way that no one can
take your happiness away from you.
“Live life as though nobody is watching, and express yourself as
though everyone is listening ” – Nelson Mandela
So always,” BE HAPPY, BE COOl and BE YOU”.
