Life is a funny Riddle! :-)



I am here again with a happy and positive state of mind… Today is my off after working for 3 continuous weekends…. And I am already feeling very refreshed.. :-)

Yes…! I was not so happy till 2011… I was trying to come out of the situations prevailing in my life at that time… At some point of time we all are in some or the other such situations where we ask ourselves where Am I going? What is the purpose? And blah blah…

Sometimes after getting all we ever wanted we remain sad and feel….. Is this what I once asked for? And this is all very natural and normal question….. They say having everything can’t makes us happy… It’s our inner feeling and state of mind that rules our mind.. I used to say this for consoling myself but the fact is… Things around us affect us big time even after having our dream job we can be sad….. Surroundings affect our positivity and sense of personal satisfaction…

Let’s take an example, When I was in my first job, the nature of my job was field sales… I used to run around all the time like a ‘Pizza delivery boy’ but I was still in love with life and enjoyed every bit of it…. And the reason was the environment and surroundings… I had friends…. I had really good boss…. I had a fun life… I loved the office culture… It was just awesome! The only bad thing was the nature of job and that I used to do all the time but I still never hated my office…. In fact, I was in love with it!

On contrary, my second job… Nature of my job was brilliant…. It was all brain work… Conceptualizing marketing campaigns… working towards making a brand, writing content for various advertisements and websites  and I handled it very well…. It was something I always wanted to do… But I hated my office… I never liked the people around…. The environment was very very bad.. All dirty and cheap politics….. And I honestly felt I am in hell… I used to ask myself the same Question- Is this what I always wanted…?  I wanted to be in Marketing and there I was head of it… Still I hated it…. It was never about the work but it was other supporting things…. You cannot live in a luxurious palace with dirty people…!

Or I would say ‘It is like I cannot eat my favorite food in a filthy place with bad people! But I can eat my not so favorite food in a very nice, clean and exciting place with my loved ones’ and that makes sense too.. :-)

I feel I am an expert at it now… I have been in such situation sooo many times that now when I see someone wondering over the same... I feel like telling them… It’s a temporary feeling with an easy solution…  Ask yourself where you wish to reach in life and then analyze what you do today is helping in reaching that goal or you are just flowing with the tide unhappily…. If that’s the case… Fight for it… Figure out your priorities in life…. Of course everyone deserves a brilliant life…. We never are the slaves of destiny… We should fight for ourselves where ever required…

After all ultimate aim of life is happiness…. So, give yourself time… jot down on paper what you want and have a cup of black coffee and relax…. Cheers! ;-) Bliss… :D

By the way… God I love you… And thanks for being there for me… Just be there for my loved ones too… Thank you…. Muaah.. :-)

Hello. :-)

You summed up the confusion and realisation about the riddle of life so nicely in this post. Sometimes our minds get too mixed up in assessing what we want and what we love.

If you get the time, then do check out my latest post which somewhat relates to this confusion in life. :-)

"Ask yourself where you wish to reach in life and then analyze what you do today is helping in reaching that goal or you are just flowing with the tide unhappily…. If that’s the case… Fight for it… Figure out your priorities in life…"

I completely agree with these lines ... this is what I keep telling others all the time ...

Here's wishing that your new job is like eating your favorite food in a very nice, clean, and exciting place with your loved ones ... :D

Good luck! :)
