Yesterday being a Sunday, I had the liberty of indulging myself. I watched a Gujarati drama in which there was a very profound dialogue or so I felt. The protagonist said “You can turn off the tap to stop the flow of water but even if you turn off your clock, time will continue to pass you by”
It was indeed a wow moment for me considering Gujarati dramas aren’t the best source of penny dropping moments.
There is nothing as important as time and living in the present moment. I often see people waking up late and partying at night. No harm in that but I for one wake up every single day with the alarm at 0444 (thanks to Robin Sharma for inculcating the idea into my brains). What do I do? It gives me some time to do things that I would like to do such as reading or as I am right now writing this post. And after that, I can go for my walk or yoga or cycling.
Another quote that I have loved is “Never postpone joy” Come to think of it, how many of us postpone joy for the future? Why not savour the moment now rather than deferring it?
Find a purpose in your life to wake up early, live in the now and enjoy every moment.
