It was twisted, it was rough. It was sunny, it was dull. It was hearty, it was dark. It was nothing like I had ever imagined it to be. It did not make sense to anybody and they asked, ‘Why would you choose that?’. But, in due course, it did not matter because I realized that it did not have to make sense to others. It was my journey and as long as it makes sense to me, it has been a great one. This is what this photo makes me feel. The vista from where I was standing said it all – ‘It was my journey and I am in love with it‘.
Sometimes, we want to do things for no reason and a good test to know whether that something is worth doing or not is this – does the thought of having done it makes you smile? If the answer is a resounding yes, then please go ahead – do that thing – however silly it may sound or scary.
Do one thing every day that scares you.Eleanor Roosevelt

Congratulations, you’re alive.
If that’s not something to smile about,
then I don’t know what is.Chad Sugg, Monsters Under Your Head
So, my dear friend, find your pulse. Etch your journey on this planet and make it every bit uniquely yours. And when you are stuck, find something that will make you smile. Sometimes, it is the simplest of things that make you the happiest. Dare to choose your act without worrying about others. Resist the desire to be safe and sheltered in the known world. Nothing is more tragic than living by the rules you never understood and to reach the end of your life realizing there was no prize for following the rules – it is a shenanigan created by the society to preserve order. Go for chaos if that is what your heart wants, create ripples, build new rules. Go for the infinity.
