Life is both a sculpture and painting at the same time. People sometimes relive their choices, again and again. When guided by principles, the path rather than the end, is what matters.
There are a lot many external factors that guide us through this life. Yet, one must realize that life isn’t a game and decisions can’t be made on the flip of a coin.
Choices can be made in the blink of a second, some choices are made for us while a few others are carefully chosen by us. We go through different phases at different points of time, it is which choices we’ve stood true to, withstanding the tests of time, is what that matters.
A chronic smoker that I was, have been pushed into quitting it. I don’t judge others still in the habit. Split second decisions are true. For let it not be forgotten that the heart beats at the rate of 72 beats per minute. Transactions are made in the time taken for a heart beat. So the ‘dhak dhak’ or ‘dil dhadakne dho’ should be consistent in the long run for life to have any meaning.
P.S I haven’t quit smoking and for now am not even trying. Dil dhadakne Dena zaroori hai kya? Is it necessary to let the heart flutter, doesn’t it beat to its own tune anyway?
