The story starts with some aspirations and dreams that one sets for a lifetime. At times life seems too small for all the things to be accomplished, for all the journeys to adopt, for all the milestones to be achieved and for all the battles to be won. A person keeps on spending his days and nights in pursuit of a better tomorrow. Every time when you have a chance to enjoy a joyous moment, you sacrifice it because you’re indulge into something urgent.
When I was a kid, our class teacher told us a story about a man who wants to climb up the highest mountain when he sees up from the valley. He tells himself that he’d have nothing more to accomplish if he reaches the top of this mountain. When he gets there, he sees another mountain, higher than the previous and it feels that there is nothing more to accomplish after this one. On reaching the top of this higher mountain, he finds that there is a top even higher than this one and he sets his journey for that one and the process goes on.
Today after all these years, I find myself trying to reach the top of a mountain which is higher than the one I just reached out. It appears that I am not going to end this journey, rather this journey is going to consume me till the end. It appears that happiness is not about reaching your destined place, happiness is about enjoying the journey to reach there. Happiness doesn’t lie in perfection rather happiness lies in the process of making things perfect. Happiness doesn’t come to you when you stand with the people who are already happy, rather happiness is what you feel when you try to get someone out of sorrow to make him happy. Happiness is all about letting go what you couldn’t achieve and focus on what you can have.
You’ll feel happy the moment you defeat your regrets, start to admire your present, set yourself free of the conflict of capability and incapability, break the rules of a never ending competition and finally start living.
