‘The charm of life has always been in the impossible and the new but it is in the possible and the now that the charm exists.’
This verse came to my mind a few days ago. The past week I was able to go on a fabulous tour that showed me how great our planet was when we see it as we see it on a canvas. It’s a painting in 3D. On that tour I came across what you could call a short trek. The end was a climb . It was lined with massive rocks that stuck to it like berries on an ice cream cone, threatening to fall down on me. Let’s just say I made it to the top. My friends had a great role in that. When I stood there, the wind making my hair go wild and my eyes blink, I thought of the determination that made those great climbers test their limits. Looking down I saw patches of land. It literally looked like pieces of cloth sewed together. It was amazing.
Sorry about all that rambling but I hope some of you enjoyed it.
So, I am going to ask that question I ask myself every time I write a post. It’s a good way to give an introduction and to tell you where this is heading.
What is this post about?
It’s about how you look at things in the present and how you should look at things in the future.
We often forget that though the present may not be that interesting, it was the future of the past. Let’s break it down to a basic picture.
Think of what you thought about today, yesterday.
Well if you ask me. I thought of ‘tomorrow’ yesterday as something to hope for. It was a picture that brought to life hope, happiness, peace and mystery.
But was today like that?
Maybe it was for some of you and maybe it wasn’t. But that’s not what I would like to bring to your attention. What I would like to bring to your attention is:
What did you do today to make that picture you saw the day before a reality?
The mistake we all have made so often in life is that we kept on dreaming but never thought of what we should do to make it a reality. We spent the past dreaming, we spend the present dreaming, and if the equation is not going to change, we could end up dreaming in the future too. But this equation will give the right results only when it is multiplied with hard work and determination.
We can’t change the past. We all have dreams. And there is nothing wrong with it making its presence known in every tense of life. But we must not forget that dreams are meant to be a reality.
So what should we do?
Take time to think what you could do to make the present what you hoped for in the past. And believe me when you feel that you’ve accomplished even a small fragment of that goal, more dreams will pile in. You will realise that those dreams have many things in common and you can climb that giant rock, that great mountain, knowing that when you reach the top, you’ll be able to see what those many dreams look like together. And believe me those patches of dreams will all be stitched together to form a great scene. One that you, you friends, your family and everyone who comes into that climb of life with you will be able to cherish.
Thanks for reading this and I’ll try and put up some more photos of my trip in the coming posts. God bless you!!!1
