We all know that we have cubed time, and in this limited time, we have to do multiple things. Starting from childhood, we are in the process of fulfilling our dreams. Our parents force us to do what they understand is good for us. On this point, I also agree toddlers do not have enough wisdom to decide right or wrong. When we grew up and came to puberty age, we started chasing our dreams to fulfill our needs. In the race of chasing hallucination, we will vanish one day. Hold your horses and think about why we are doing this and the perspective of doing this? The answer that comes out will be very similar to this — We are just spending our life revolving around our fantasies. Most of us flowing in the same river and even in the same direction. A very few can understand the contrast between living and spending a life. Consider an example of noble personalities — Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, Mother Teresa, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, Sarojini Naidu, Bhagat Singh, and so on. Their contributions are still present among us, and that is the actual meaning of living a life. I am also not a subject matter expert, but a great personality makes others enthusiastic, enlighten, etc. So try to introspect yourself and try to find the most beautiful thing that you can do to get a wave of inner peace.
No one is perfect — I agree
No one can do everything — I agree
No one can become a million years — I agree
But you can change the world around you with small things and change your inner thoughts. A teacher with complete motivation teaches you without making any shade of corruption for him/her teaching is the wave of inner peace. In conclusion, there are ample examples by which we can start living life rather than just spending a life.
Life is very short, Sort your things and live a great life.
