Hope you are enjoying the weekend and having awesome time on the Blog-O-Sphere just like me, finding new people, new concepts, learning new things and taking it all just on the go!!
When I saw the topic for the Blog-A-Ton this month, I felt I am in. Literally the topic seems to be very much about me. So I am gonna speak to myself here today, on this blog. Here is my entry for: Blog-A-Ton:
For an idiot, who knows not a thing about reading maps, traversing using road signs and asking/listening to directions, Journey can be very very tiring in itself unless it is a pleasant chopper ride with an all resourceful pilot.
So, I despise the journey many a times and don't understand why I have to go through it all without a purpose. And when the journey I am speaking about is my life itself, things become more and more complicated.
Lots of dreams in my life, most of them so absurd that they can be called day-dreams and nothing else. Each dream is a world in itself, a huge destination. Each dream requires attention, time, a brand new skill set , dedication and passion.
All is so well when thinking about the dreams, when imagining how life would be after reaching each of those destinations, when day-dreaming about the awe I would inspire in my fellow men at the destination but that isn't the case when it comes to putting efforts needed in transit all the way to the goal.
All I would do is pray to god, in whom I don't have the strongest faith and then relax back, laugh at myself for being in shit and distance myself from the shit convincing my heart that I don't belong here and shall reach heights with almost no pains, just by grace of god alone, by destiny, by luck and by conspiracy of the entire world.
Again, life isn't a story to be told alone but meant to live, enjoy, feel and much more. Am I not right? *I know .. I am right all the time*. So no issues, though every destination teaches new things, holds an adventure for me and though I am sure I would eventually reach every destination to leave a mark there, sometimes I still despise the journey in itself.
Tell me your opinion on this topic, your feelings about life being a journey and whether your Journey means a destination alone or more than that? How do you feel?
