Yesterday while sitting in my room and staring at the colony of spiders which had invaded a significant portion of the wall by setting up a  beautiful cobweb, a wave of thought flushed my mind.A question popped up.Where do i see myself in next ten years ?

We all are encountered with this question as we  hop through various phases of life.

When i was young,i wanted to be an astronaut,just like the great Kalpana Chawla and Sunita Williams.The mere thought of constellations and  galaxies and the world beyond the blue planet brought goosebumbs and boiled my blood.

Yes.I really aspired to be one.As i grew up,although the science behind this mysterious subject amused and fascinated me,i was not lucky enough to get into an institute offering the course and so this childhood dream of dressing into a space suit and  doing the moonwalk and meeting the aliens was crushed and buried. i was feeling like a poet who had forgotten his  poetry. To overcome from this mountain of depression which was gifted to me,I took the help of art.I started painting.It was like my long lost genes which I had inherited from my mom had suddenly been activated. Soon wanted to become a painter like Leonardo da vinc.My choices of profession oscillated between painter and  writer, writer and  fashion designer and so on.

Who would know that i would end up in an IT firm playing with tables full of millions of records for my bread and butter.I had worried about my past and continue to worry about my future.

It is scientifically proven that you can physically live only in the present. You can chip your nails trying to dig out the past or fry some serious grey cells stressing about the future, but your body shall continue playing hockey with the present.

I really don't know where my life is heading to. I don’t know where I will be in the next ten  years. I even don't know what i really wanna do or become :P Maybe I would continue to play with tables and its million records for sustaining my shopping, or maybe I would be married, or maybe i would be roaming on the paris street doing my dream shopping or  may be I would be partying in heaven and hanging out with angels and having some serious discussion with god . I could be anywhere, doing anything and living anyway.

Well no body knows how destiny unfolds in the next heartbeat.My mantra is

Live in the present,eat lots of chocolates without worrying about the increasing pounds,spend every single penny on the things which brings happiness and leave nothing to tomorrow which may never come.

Its ok to have an extra piece of sweet-dish in lunch and skip an exercise or two.Its ok not to have a planned life.Why kill the precious present by fretting about tomorrow?

PS: Missed this space more than words can express.

What you're saying is completely true. I know that everybody must say the same thing, but I just think that you put it in a way that everyone can understand. I'm sure you'll reach so many people with what you've got to say.
