Rant 261 : I am star!

I am a star.

Yes, I am a star. A star you cannot afford.

Life is not unfair, it’s just consequential – what you sow, so you reap. But sometimes, things from the adjacent house come towering over when you and that happens when the winds are terrible, when the sky is dark and when the locks don’t work. I repeat, life is not unfair, its just consequential.

You cried when you remembered the pal who left away? Why not cry for a few seconds and then smile at the new pals, new places and better opportunities that came along? It nerved you when you  saw your annual results. Get nerved for a moment and then smile because that lead you to where you are today. Remember, you are nothing short of a star and do not let anyone tell you that you cannot do something.

I remember a dialogue from the pursuit of happiness, do not let anyone tell you that you can’t do it. For me, that kind of changed my life and no I am not a blockbuster yet, but I began living my life at my terms (my doesn’t mean just me, but everyone close to me).

And now, close to stepping into mid-life, I realise how important a decision that was. That decision taught me the art of negotiation with those who matter. To learn the way of explaining yourself to someone. To learn how to keep up with your losses and the pits in the path you’ve chosen for yourself. The greatest self-motivation to fight something comes when the path is a chosen one. When you are pushed upon something, nothing pushes you to correct the wrongs on that path.

So, don’t feel feeble when turns take you away – they’re taking you on a highway, a much faster one and a wider one.  So pack up your seatbelts and enjoy the ride, even if it is a bumpy one.

Because out of all the chaos that lies around, out of the billions of eyes that gaze at you and the billion hearts that beat with you – you’re the one star. Be the star you always wanted to be.

You’re a star I cannot afford!

Yes, I am a star. A star you cannot afford.

I am a star.

Always Ranting, Rantzaada.
