Stream Of Thoughts...!

While trying to captivate the stream of my ever wandering thoughts today, it occured to me that we probably remember things as pictorial representations than words. Our lives can be compared to an ongoing movie script over which we have complete creative control. Within us lies the power to examine what works or isn't working in our lives and make "edits" to our life's script, accordingly. Sounds simple - ain't it? ;)

Granted, editing our real life isn't always as easy as erasing a line of text. If we've carried emotional baggage or held on to an unconducive relationship for a long time, these may be difficult to edit out. But when we do cut out what isn't working from our lives, we'll feel lighter & more alive. Editing out activities that we find stressful, disassociating ourselves from people that drain your energy, and letting go of your emotional baggage are all beneficial cuts we can make - all by ourselves. Many times, when we try to be perfectionists - we overexert ourselves & in case we learn that things we wish to improve are simply not under our control - we feel even worse !! Then we think - should we actually take life that seriously?
Probably not - since good 'ol childhood days, we have been conditioned to believe in truth and pursue our paths to excellence / perfection. How can one unlearn this? Anyways for now let me
make the commitment to remove these disturbing & non-value adding Add-Ons from this adventurous game called life.
And yes, wish you all a very Happy & Eventful Independence Day !!!!
