The dark side of light.
That's the best title I could think of, for what I am going to say.
Each one of us come into this world with no goals, targets or ambitions. These are given to us in the next phase of life, when we have learnt the art of saying "yes", "no" or even "maybe". But its usually a "yes", for we are trained that way. This is the part of life where we are taught about the good and the bad. And we start understanding what's beautiful and what's not. What is right and what is wrong. Life goes on and we head out to school, where the teachers enlighten us with a lot of facts. Now again, we are in the process of learning what's good and what's bad.
Now the question is, why this preface?
As kids, youngsters, we all dreamt of a life that we wanted. How many of us are really living the dreams? Reality check - I wanted to be an artist. Wanted to major in fine arts. What am I today? What is my background? Marketing it is. So, what happened to my dreams? What happened to my passion? Left it all behind. For what joy? To choose marketing? To earn lots of money? NO! I had to leave it behind because I was forced to. Who forced me? Family? Friends? No, it was the circumstances. This is not just my story, everybody on this planet can relate to this story in their own way. I strongly believe that instead of educating us with all the unwanted stuff, try teaching life to the younger generation. For they know that their tomorrow is nothing less than a challenge. We made promises to ourselves and to our family and friends. We promised to do what we loved and make the best of it, we promised them that we will be there for them no matter what, and we promised to keep in touch... None of those promises are kept. Now I know that there are two kind of people. Good and bad? No! People who are living (a sad life) to die and people who are dying to live. I want to be the latter. I want to fulfil the promises I made to myself, my family and my friends. In my case, the process has begun. When are you going to start? When are you going to move away from the dark side of light?
