I stepped out of the train and looked at my watch, 10:58 AM, I climbed up the stairs and pushed through the people. I had 2 minutes to change the metro. People gushing into me, I crashed into a fat lady. I picked myself up and walked fast. I was already running behind the schedule, I didn’t want to miss this train. If I had I would have to wait for 10 more minutes for the next train.
With my backpack sitting at my back I raced down the stairs to catch the metro with doors open, waiting for its passengers to board. I ran towards it when the doors started to beep before closing and in no time I found myself inside the metro successfully, but my backpack was stuck between the doors. By then, I was scandalized by fellow passengers’ horrified eyes. I tried to get my backpack when the doors opened again and I got myself and my bag inside in one, complete piece.
Everyone stared at the anxious, panting me with a bewildered look. I was not liking the ambience, I never really liked awkward stares and pity, it reminded me of the time when I was ten and I puked all over the shoes of my school principal while I was on stage, getting my scholarship award. It was the most embarrassing moment of my life, I never stole anyone’s lunch after that.
The starry night blinked with light, beats on the dance floor blurring my eyes. I drank in excess, thus the state of sublime. I was jumping and laughing, as if it was the last night of my life. I saw him, coming towards me and I held my breath. Wondering would he lean in? He held my hand and we sat down somewhere in the midst of nowhere, but I liked it with him. We did not move, just stayed there; hand in hand.
How many times has this happened with you, when you want to pursue something, or try to get out of an old habit, temptations circle you around and whispers in your ears, attracts you towards the false habits and delusions? THIS IS UNHEALTHY. When you want to achieve great heights, you need to maintain your will power, but I must tell you, will power is limited, while traveling on the road with hard rocks, your energy might drain. But believe in yourself, get the IF and THEN theory into action, if the temptations cross your way, then make an excuse to them, do not procrastinate about the tasks you need to do. Remember, will power is driven by the WHY of your life, why do you want to exercise, because you want to lose weight, why do you want to read books, to achieve knowledge why do you want to spend time with your closed ones, because you care about them. The key is to find the why, But do not rush into all the things together, do it one by one. one thing at a time continuously and constantly, make it a habit in sometime, then once it becomes a habit, take another task. This won’t drain you out and you would be able to spend your will bucks smartly.
Detox yourself by knowing yourself, know your why and spend the will bucks smartly.
It was 2 in the morning when Myra woke up to the sound of the wind coming from the balcony. Lying on the bed, she saw Roy standing with a cigarette in his hand, looking at the moon. Myra walked beside Roy while clutching the sheets to her chest. “What are doing here this late?”, She looked at Roy and kissed his bare chest as he faced her. Roy and Myra were meeting for the first time but it never felt like the first time. Maybe it was the booze or it was the vulnerabilities they both were facing. Myra was trying to fill the hole which was recently dug and Roy, well he was trying his best to refill the tiny pits in his chest.
Belong to people; you’ll be a disgrace. Belong to the world; you’ll perpetrate. Belong to the things; you’ll never have wings. But belong to yourself, and you’ll achieve the freedom to live happily, And the satisfaction within.
