Today’s prompt made me click on this site. You know all those irritating advertisements you keep on getting on the side panel of any we page!!!! So this was a particular page that said
“Wish you could change your past? Learn to let go and create a life you love!!!”
And I was tempted to click on it especially after reading the today’s prompt question. There is nothing that happened last week and i wish to change it but this is more like in general!! In-fact last week has been wonderful so no changes in that!!
“Information is not knowledge.” And it started with this statement.
Currently I am like Frustrated. Scared. Unsure. Anxious. Trapped. Unfulfilled. Stuck in a dead-end job. Smothered by society’s expectations and yes I dont have a clue what I want to do with my life.
So further this site stated that:
Self-knowledge is the greatest knowledge that you will ever acquire. Why? Because your ability to fulfill your unique internal drive will determine your ability to fulfill your potential, which in turn determines the quality of your life?
The questions below are designed to help to know yourself deeply and find what is truly important to you. We all have an unexpressed potential; the exercises are specifically designed to help you find yours.
Question number 1) what I absolutely love in life?
Answer – Ghosh!! I wish there was just one thing!! There’s a list of things I love and I am confused which one is my favorite from it. Books have always been my first love but sometimes I tend to move and bend to other directions as well. I love traveling (What makes me say so is really funny coz I haven’t travelled much but still I say I love to travel). This reminds me of a very good quote I don’t remember where I read but it was like
“Judge a man by his questions rather than his answers.”
We do make our world significant by the courage of our questions and the depth of our answers.
Question number 2) What are my greatest accomplishments in life so far?
List of proud moments? Mmmmm…. Yes there are few which really proud ones for me myself were (don’t know about others, appreciation has been missing like forever). So yes the proud moment came at the age of 10 or 11 I guess when a poem I wrote got selected in some children’s poem writing competition in U.K. My school had sent it on my behalf!! Than it was grade 8 when I completed the graduation in Indian classical dance form BHARATNATYAM. Then it was me taking a proud decision of not continuing with masters in science (even when i was forced to do so) and instead perusing communication studies which made me do TWO masters together at the same time (Had to attend college for like 12 hours a day) but still it made me something. And last was when my research paper that came 3rd in the state.
Other than that all my WordPress friends are also a big accomplishments for me. I made some real good friends here who have been a contributor towards making my life beautiful so yes!! All you people, meeting you is my proud moment.
Question number 3) what would I stand for if I knew no one would judge me?
The right to live freely (A lot said in less words). Imagine feeling trapped in an unsatisfying existence. Wasting your precious time doing things that you really don’t want to be doing. Being afraid to express your uniqueness. Having fun on the weekends then dreading the upcoming week. Maybe you don’t have to imagine it; maybe your life is just like mine was, few moments of satisfaction drowned out by a constant grind of work that doesn’t fulfill you.
Question number 4) if my life had absolutely no limits and I could have it all and do whatever I wanted, what would I choose to have and what would I choose to do?
Ha!!!!! I would leave this unanswered but there are at-least two people here who knows the perfect answer to this question!!
I can recall many times I made lists of resolutions in December only to forget them by February
Perception is reality. Make sure, for better or worse, you know what people really think of you.
Question number 5) what would I do if I had one billion dollars?
Okay so probably most of them would have answers like travel the world, buy a house or two, and give some money to your family. Yes!! That definitely does come in but most important is do something which you always wanted to!! Probably I will invest the money in my dream and by the way it’s not traveling the world or buying a house!! NO!! I have a very simple and sweet dreams!!
Despite my good intentions, it isn’t until I make a huge transition. I am a weak person I guess
Question number 6) who do I admire most in the world?
Myself and you all
Real change happens from the inside out, not the outside in.
Perhaps the most transformative practice of all is the act of letting go. In order to change, we must first make space to allow growth to happen. Let go of our expectations. Let go of our past pain. Let go of who we were yesterday and who we think we might be tomorrow. Let go of everything that is not making us better individuals right now. Most importantly, let go of thinking that we need to be perfect by adhering to anything – Camille Willemain
And with all this question the write up ends with a note saying:
The most valuable knowledge that you will ever discover is, and always will be, within
