“Write, I dare you,” roared the grim monster who had imprisoned me, popularly known as ‘The Writer’s Block’. It filled me with fright. So much, that the mere thought of combat did not occur to my brittle mind. In that misery, I came across the following:
Don’t stop. Don’t wait until you have reached your goal.
My words. My words. My words.
*repeats thrice for the emphasis*
Each of those words gave me a piercing glare. That moment made me truly realise that ‘it’s not about saying the right things, it’s about doing the right things’.
But, that did not shake me enough. I continued the Netflix and chill regime. No setting alarms and no work-related stress. Yeah, I was unemployed, at 26. No, I do not blame Netflix. Too easy, don’t you think? During that fortnight, I couldn’t escape the ‘empty mind’ syndrome which led me to the devil’s paradise. Today, I am here (employed), only because of those who have faith in me, for those who never gave up on me.
I thought… wait, the accident (01.05.2015) was never my fault. If I want to fulfil my dreams, how the hell will it happen if I hide from reality? Fair or unfair, we have to play with cards we are dealt with. Either sink or swim. So, let’s swim, guys. Trust me, however strong the force of the water you are facing is, someone else’s force is much stronger. The waves are not fatal. Accept the reality. It’s not so bad.
Kehte hai, agar kisi cheez ko dil se chaho,
toh puri kaayenaat usey tumse milaane ki koshish mein lag jati hai.
Aaj iss baat ka bhi yaqeen ho gaya, ki filmo ki tarah,
humari zindagi mein bhi, end tak sab kuch theek ho jata hai.
Aur agar theek na ho, toh woh The End nahi.
Picture abhi baki hai mere dost!
