– What is success?
~ It is being able to go to bed each night with your soul at peace.
_ Paul Cohelho
Life began with a race by defeating those 250 million sperms. Technically we were all winners until we were born. Then we live in a society where it’s considered as crime if you want to be anything but doctor or engineer in your life [no offend, I respect every doctor & engineer. But not everyone wants to choose these professions just because what people will say]. Engineering & MBBS degree – these are the words that make everyone happy. I remember, when I was 10 years old, I wanted to be an engineer because it seemed cooler. At that time I didn’t even know what engineering actually is. But in my exam paper I used to write, “My aim in life is to be a doctor so that I can render free services to the poor people”. Firstly, no one becomes a doctor to render free services (exceptional aren’t counted as example). Secondly, I had chosen to write doctor as my aim in life in my exam paper because its spelling was easier than the spelling of engineering. So, less chance of being incorrect, high chance of getting better scores & my only true aim in life was then to get a well figured GPA.
Life started to show its true color when I came to know what engineering actually meant. Mathematics was fine when it was only about the numbers. Then the alphabets came in & ruined my math skill. I thought I was at home in physics but it didn’t remain friendly for so long. And I was never in a good relation with chemistry. Thus my GPA was decreasing constantly. From a front-row student I was tagged as a below-average student. And I still don’t know what to do about it. I don’t know how my friends (both of them) manage to secure a good points & I feel like an idiot around them. The best (or worst) part is, I really don’t have an aim in life now.
“It’s okay not to have a better point or degree” – I consoled myself. Life will happen in its own way. No one knows the future – that’s the best thing. A hen doesn’t know what will happen to its egg. Whether it will get life or it will be an omelet before you – no one knows. But the hen won’t stop laying eggs for that. So, why should I stop living my life? Let me live today first. So that I can assure that whatever is happening is because of me, I choose this path willingly not by being pressured by some neighbor Aunt.
Admit it; we all wanted to commit suicide at some point of our life. But we didn’t because we weren’t brave enough. We face this kind of situation, where we are afraid of being alive and accepting death at the same time. Low GPAs make you understand that you aren’t worth living. A high dream will show you why you should live. Life is full of miracles. There are moments in our life, moments that are worth more than all the wealth of this universe. And we need to live just to witness those moments. We need all the pieces to solve the puzzle. Life isn’t a race. It’s a game. It’s not about to win, it’s about to play it. It is time we should stop existing and start living.
