I have a friend who watsapp’ me interesting pictures almost every morning and I kinda start my day reading whatever he sends (I am sure he does make an effort in choosing what to send because I like it all). A week back he sent me a quote and since then it has occupied some space in my crowded head.
It reads, “I think we forget things if we have no one to tell them to”. It’s a simple sentence which most people will read and ignore but I couldn’t do so. For a week now I have been thinking about things I forgot in the near past only to understand if these words make sense given the way they have captured me. Not just myself, I started probing my friends if they happened to use the word “I forgot” in our useless conversations. After a weeks’ exploration, I have come to the conclusion that the thing most people have forgotten (atleast around me) is their Passion and one of the major reason is – they don’t have anyone to talk to about them. People will talk/crib about how bad the weather or the traffic is – how beautiful the new lipstick or the dress is – how they are struggling at work, how they want pursue someone – how their partners dumped them – how ugly and disgusting the guy/girl sitting next to them is – how the government is not doing anything – how parents are not understanding them – how their friends are busy hanging out with other new friends – how many likes the picture on FB got – except for what are they most zealous for.
Why do we not talk about things we want to do in this life or the purpose of our lives (only if we have found it)? Do we not have friends who would be interested in knowing all this? Are we scared to talk about our desires just because everyone else will find it funny? Or do we simply want to keep everything to ourselves?
I don’t know, this may all be gibberish. I may not be thinking right. But I feel talking about your passions, desires; will only get you one step closer to them (the law of attraction is also pertinent here). And the best part is, if you keep talking about it, you will never forget about what the purpose of your life is – or you may just end up finding it someday. And once we start doing what we love, life will be so much better. Again, I don’t know but worth a shot!
