YOLO …

Dearest Dhyan,

It may be too early for you to hear this but I am gonna cite what Tagore wrote, “Days and nights pass and ages bloom and fade like flowers.” You may feel what we have going on is eternal, but I am sorry buddy – it is not. Life is short – very, very short!

Is it gloomy? Forgive me. Life is Temporary but it’s beautiful. Don’t ever forget this – “Your life is yours completely FULLSTOP; not anyone else’s not even mine or dad’s”.  Own it! . Because life spent is spent! There is no UNDO button!

  • I am not asking you to be cautious. Be reckless, actually. Live boldly.
  • If you want to do something, go for it. Don’t let anyone or anything hold you back. Hard work never hurts, especially if you enjoy it!
  • Be honest & loyal to yourself. Do some serious soul-searching.
  • Never let anyone tell you your limits! You are limited only by your thoughts. A man (like you) can do anything! You are your leader…
  • Make sure your life is full of choices that you made. It’s okay if you regret some of those. You will regret even more if your life were not your choices!
  • Trust your instincts! Follow your heart! Chase your dreams! The world is yours!
  • Don’t even think to say these – ‘No’ , ‘Do you want me to regret later?’, ‘I will figure it out’, ‘I know what I am doing’, ‘It’s my choice’, ‘My time is my money’, ‘Because this is my life’ , ‘If not now, when?’, ‘Live and let live’

Son, I don’t wish you a life full of successes or a bed of roses. I wish , pray , will make sure till I die, that you always live a life filled with happiness, purpose, commitment, self-awareness, self-esteem, courage, integrity & clarity… In the end, when you look back at your life, all that I wish you do will be to smile contently 🙂 I want nothing more …

“Saying that “life is short” is such a cliche. And it’s true. In fact, we only have five minutes to be here. In the really big scheme of things, not even that long. We humans don’t even have the lifespan of fruit flies if you look at the bigger picture.
In other words, we don’t have a second—not even a second—to waste on petty drama, on living fake, shallow lives, on swallowing our truth, or on hiding our light.
We only dance around the flame of this gorgeous human existence for moments and the one thing important at all is living beautifully.” -Jacob Nerdy

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs
