“It’s vast and empty.
There’s a land,
Barren or nourished you know not.
Yet how do take the courage
In order that someday it might grow?
We never know the future. No one does. Of course, if there was a way we wouldn’t be where we are.
However whenever we encounter a fork in the road or a decision to take, we stumble. Underestimate our abilities, feel incapable to do the task and in doubt miss out on the opportunity. The regret that we carry might be a completely different story altogether.
This might be able to change how most of us think-
“The best way to predict the future is to create it” –Abraham Lincoln.
The lines have a deeper meaning running in them. How would you ever know if you don’t take the first step? Like an unsolved mystery it would carry it’s regret for as long as you would remember it. Haven’t we all dealt with missed opportunities?
Having Faith in yourself is the key aspect to the solution of this problem. If you are sure that you can, let no one’s pessimism or lack of confidence in you affect yourself. Make sure to remind yourself why you’d been fighting for it since so long and it is in you to do it.
Getting inspiration from outside is also great help. There’s a plethora of content available on the Internet. Connect with people, can be of any genre such as food,blogging, a technology startup, art, fashion or dance. It can be anything!
Keep switching. Constantly keep Trying something new .it’s alright if it doesn’t suit up to you. Something’s might take time for you to figure out that it doesn’t lie in the greater part of your interests. Sometimes somethings that you imagined you’d never like might actually ‘click’ with you. So, leave no stone unturned and don’t waste your time on thinking. Go for yoga one day and do pottery or painting on another, go hiking or travel after all there’s so much to do!
The minute you stop and start thinking or stare at your phone for a week deciding whether to do something or not, you have stopped creating your future. Your life has entered standstill again. There’s nothing but anxiety and regret there. The outside world holds happiness beyond your wildest imaginations.
Imagine when you’d proudly say someday with satisfaction that “I’ve tried almost everything in my life.”
And the reason for that would be
beacause you took that step.
