Self imposed exiles aren’t worth the while


Life reveals itself in inexplicable ways. The highs can make you put yourself in heaven drinking sweet ambrosia with the gods while the lows can enervate your souls. It is the amalgamation of the two which make life the joyride that it is. All one needs is the control to not get carried away with the pleasures and the patience to withstand the pains.

Prudence is the precursor to reticence and it might keep you a little cushioned from the pain but the price you pay for it is extortionate. The trepidation of despondency may compel you to exile yourself to the secure bubble of solitude. But the stampede doesn’t cease when the ostrich digs its head in the ground. Misery, like an assiduous detective, will come and find you, and then you’ll feel you were better off experiencing the full spectrum of emotions, at least you would have gotten a chance to cherish the exaltations.

You can seek a prognosticator who would futilely bid to denude your destiny, but life is too random to be figured out and therein lies its marvel. The exploration of the unknown is where one truly find himself. Just beyond the pines of your comfort zone, where awkwardness meets discomfort.

Nothing good comes out of undertaking mundane expeditions to places you already know, Following a dreary pattern will seldom make you exploit the gifts with which which you were endowed. 

The first time you face a roadblock, you give up, you quit, you freeze, you undermine your own potential when you were born to reign land and seas.

This bitter sweet life wouldn’t be the same without all its flavours, You cant mould the recipe to your whims, you have to accept all of it and just learn to savour.

You might be willing to sacrifice life’s gifts to avoid those time bestowed soul piercing stings, wisdom lies in embracing it all, biting the peach of life, relishing the juice dribbling down your chin.

Pain is an austere teacher, empowering you with willpower, patience and belief, You’re certain to open your eyes to a better world once you’ve overcome the grief.

Find the strength to overcome the doubts inside, which suffocate you like an over protective shield, and you will discover the magic in your soul, which your doubts had concealed.

The magic wont guarantee happiness or make you immune to those moments of melancholy in your life, but it will give you the spontaneity to notice the ephemeral moments which make you feel alive.
