ME, MY SPECTACLES AND MY BAG
This is a story about my obsession towards my bag and spectacles, of how I am addicted to my bag and spectacles,
Life feels incomplete without it!
If I’ll lose them, I may not survive in this world.
One day I met a guy and fell in love with him.
Given my love and compassion towards him, he asked me to let go off my obsession towards my bag andspectacles,
I felt bad, as if he is not able to understandme, it felt like he just loved my looks and not me, Am I not good enough, am I notbeautiful?
He could see what I was not able to see,
And though I fought, I let him go away from me but he didn’t give up on me, And then one fine day I met with an accident where I lost my bag and my spectacles…
After losing them, I realized that my spectacles were my anxiety for the future, I was not ready to let go off my anxiety, I kept thinking about my future all the time, not living in the moment,
I was full of fear, by which I kept thinking about how life should be in the future than living in the present.
I also realized that the bag was my guilt related to my past,
I didn’t want to let go off what happened in the past and wanted to feel this bag full of shame, guilt and loneliness which was inducing stress in my shoulders, Once I let go off the bag, my shoulders started feeling relaxed,
It felt like now I would be able to cherish each and every moment in my life, Feeling bubby, chirpy, lively, full of energy and full of life.
By the time I realized that how letting go of this obsession had helped me, and the more I realized, I started falling for him more
By this realization I felt like hugging him more, kissing him and wanting to be with him forever,
But in the hospital bed when I turned to my right and the moment I saw his bed was empty,
I understood, that I have lost him forever.
Though he went away from my life, he didn’t give up on me
He taught me one more thing, How to accept the situation as itis.
He taught me how to accept changes in life and be happy about it,
Sometimes you get what you want, sometimes you don’t, Does that mean you will not be happy?
Leaving my past behind, letting go off all the worries of the future and accepting my life the way it is, gave me strength to walk my path,
With this strength I saw that life is a beautiful place to live!!!
To be happy, to be in the moment and to live life to the fullest!!
With this understanding my love for him lasted forever and gave me more strength to understand life in a better way.
Cheers to Life!!
