We all make choices about how we want to live. No choice is right or wrong, good or bad, leading us towards success or failure. It is all about what we want to do and how we want to live.
Some of us live each moment fully as it might be the last we have. We live our lives slowly – soaking, pondering over thoughts, emotions, actions, dreams, ideas and people. For us, it is important to look behind the scenes, to discover secrets which no one has, to questions why things are so, and question what if things were different.
Some others don’t worry about each small or big moments. They breeze through life flying high on a magic carpet. From above everything looks small, insignificant and fitting nicely into where it should be. They know things could be different but they also know that the new difference would also balance itself on it’s own. Then why bother think about it so much?
People often believe that those who fall into the first category have too much time on their hands, which allows them to be slow. On the contrary, people in the other category, don’t deliberate as much, because they don’t have the luxury of time. They have to continuously move fast.
I believe this is not true. Time has nothing to do with how we chose to live. We live the way we live, because we chose to live like that. If we chose to soak in moments, there are million opportunities, each day, to do so, even in our busy lives. If we chose to live like the breeze, we will never be in one moment. As soon as we enter one, our mind would have moved on to another.
Again, there is nothing wrong or right about either way of living. One of them is not happier or more successful than the other. As long as we are conscious about the choices we make, and not blame time for it, we will be happy in either or both of them.
