20 days back I turned 21, and suddenly my life is filled with realizations. Looks like this year is going to be filled with a lot of them : )
I’ve already realized that life, like us, people, is not either black or white. There are 50 shades of grey in between the two. Its not either good or bad, or happy or sad. There’s little good, little bad, not so good and 47 such options to choose from. There are no two classifications to describe how we feel about anything. I wish it were as simple as that : ) What if we only had a happy or sad to choose from ? And no other options in between ?
Similarly, with people. We aren’t just black or white. Each one of us has shades of grey. Some have more of black & some more of white.
Its on us to decide which one we want more. The choice is always ours.
Each day we live, we learn, we grow.
We grow up, we grow old.
Some days are good, others aren’t that nice. I still have a variety of adjectives to choose from : ) One of my first realizations this year: Everyday is not going to be nice. You’ll feel differently each day, and there is nothing you can do about it. And its time to accept it.
Like I was recently told by my two besties, living life has to be done without fear, without fearing the unknown, the untold. Also, having faith – complete and total faith.
I lack total faith. I’m somewhere in the middle, stuck between believing and being scared that believing won’t work and it’ll all come crashing down. Sometimes, you can’t find an answer, and at such times, probably you have to have faith that God will show you the right path.
That’s something I’m going to work on : )
I’m off to bed now, with the hope that tomorrow will be a better day : )
I’m figuring my shades of grey as my life unfolds itself. Hope you figure yours too : )
