A Rendezvous with Yourself is all that you need...

The title might make you think what is the sudden need for a rendezvous with yourself. After all, seldom do you get time to talk to your near and dear ones; how, then, talking to yourself would help you; why should you spare time for this. Sometime back, I thought the same. At times in life, you continue going on with the flow, as life brings opportunities. After having faced setbacks, you plan to take turns as they come and adapt yourself to them. You would even enjoy doing your tasks probably. However, from inside, you'll feel that something is missing from your spirit of giving yourself.

At times, it may happen that you feel empty, despite being complete in your life. There is an unexplained mist that surrounds your soul. You know that you need to do something about it, but you cannot understand the problem, because you feel you have everything already. It is the point where you need to wait and watch, to have a rendezvous with yourself, to know whether what you have is really what you wanted always. Life is about taking decisions everyday, from choosing the right kind of food to deciding the fate of a nation. Everyone has to make choices. It is only the matter of choices that differentiates one human being from another. Only choices that create differences in perceptions and lifestyles between known people too.

There is a very famous line from Robert Frost's poem 'The Road Not Taken' that we all must have read-
"Two roads diverged in a wood,
and I took the one less travelled by,
and that has made all the difference"...

Try it out sometime for sure- when you feel lost, frustrated and empty from inside, just do one thing. Go out for a walk with yourself. When you walk on a beach in the evening, or stand in your garden feeling the breeze on your face, it will surely make you meet yourself, the one you had been missing out till now. Once you have found yourself, you will realize those unsaid words, the forgotten desires, your unspoken wishes and some more that you might have walked away from, in the course of time. A wave of joy will surely make you take that single step needed to create a difference and stand apart from the world, where you will see yourself as never before.

Human mind is driven by what it sees. It is a general phenomenon that you might get illusioned by some charms that attract you for sometime. In the end, you will come to know that the real thing was always inside you, but you ignored it. You got so preoccupied with the world that you'd forgotten yourself. You never looked back to your roots to know yourself. However, the day you sit back and think of it, you'll know that it is all about the peace that your heart can give to you, once you promise to listen to it and follow the right thing that it tells you to do. It is always better to hold on to something that does not make you feel drained out, hurt or frustrated, because if nothing in this world is permanent, then you have no right to deprive yourself of the dreams that you can make true by merely following them.

Go on and live the dream that you really want to live.
