“BRAWL BETWEEN WHAT YOU WANT & WHAT YOU GET”
We all are born with a tight fist, well that’s how our brain is at that stage. But steadily, as we grow up that fist gets unlocked and that’s the moment when our brain starts twiddling. We start observing and perceiving everything we see around us. We see, that the world is so colossal with so many shades, colours, people, artefacts and what not. With this we start getting choosy even as a child as what we want and what not. We start pointing on the colour that attracts us, the dress which others are wearing, cake with all the gems on it, shoes with a squeaky sound and food that delights our tummy. We start mewling and bawling at parents of what we want and become as rigid as rock if we do not get it. Eventually our parents get us the shimmery dress just to see twinkle in our eyes. Isn’t so?
But as we grow up that bubble gets burst and we realise that “LIFE” will not always fulfil your wishes. Even after the mewling and bawling life might give you a kick on your ass. Now, those childhood tantrums won’t work anymore. Then, what are we supposed to do to make our wishes and dreams come true? Should we “Follow our dreams. Figure out where we would like to be, what we like to be doing, and then figure out what you need to do to get there.” Well, is it that simple…If not simple it’s true for sure. Putting an extra edge to get what we want isn’t a bad deal. The catch here is how desperate you are achieve your goal, the sacrifices you can make to make that dream come true, the hard work you put into it, the obstacles which you beat, the mould which you have bought into yourself. If all these things are put together and once you make a firm decision, the whole universe will conspire to make it happen. One needs to be dedicated, focused and consistent.
Now some people may disagree with all of what I said and say that it’s all philosophical crap and however hard you try, life will always give you lemons. Life has always been unfair and will always be to me. Then, the answer to it is look around yourself. You might have a bundle of things which you have and you don’t appreciate because you have got them with an ease. There might be the things which you don't want but you still have. That’s because you needed them. To make our lives beautiful, life always provides us a baggage of stuff which we might need. For the extra things which attract us and then we aspire to have them in our lives, comes after strong efforts. Success is getting what you want and happiness is wanting what you get. You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you’ll find you get what you need.
