Life : Social Butterfly

Disclaimer: If you are here expecting to read about an inspiration - As butterflies flutter, so does the freedom to see our dreams take flight, this post will be of little or no use. 

About couple of years ago, I was 22 years old and had many ambitions. I was standing in the bathroom looking at the mirror on the blank white wall, with multitude of thoughts in my mind; I was confused and did not have a sense of direction. Then I thought, “Well, what do you expect? You are just 22 and you still have to learn a lot, before you can declare that you have arrived! It is supposed to be challenging path ahead.”

Now, as I stand in front of the same mirror; mosaic of words, emotions, and feelings fill my mind. But, I am not confused anymore, about what life is about and about me – I. It was no longer just a blank white wall. Now it was a wall holding the mirror reflecting my personality – solutions lie within us. I’ve always believed in emotions. I’ve always believed – and been interested in – the emotions that most people pay no attention to; ordinary emotions – including emotions that frame casual relationships with strangers. We all experience them every day, but give little or no thought to how much power they carry. We can all agree that inspirations happen from everyday experiences and change our lives, but we usually take emotions for granted. There is a necessity and you’re supposed to study your own emotions and when it’s time, it’s time. This is what I believe in. Two years… and I understood, the only lesson to learn is to understand emotions. It’s my religion.
