Is our life a race?

Tiffany Brar
Posted September 21, 2019 from India

Most of the people have a feeling that we have to achieve great and so much by a certain age limit. I f not so we feel like it is a biggest failure. Usually we quit/take a back step during that time because we have a feeling that “Life is a race against time and money.”  We should not quit on our attempts because of following someone else time frame and following them blindly. As a blind girl and founder of an organisation, so many times due to various reasons I felt like quitting in my attempt. But my vision and goal was very clear. During the toughest time I rewind those goals and start to run again boldly and confidently to help my fellow blind community.

At times I used to think that life is really short and very long. It doesn’t mean so. It is like how we approach the situation. When we don’t we want that moment in life where we have to quit time goes too slow and when we want to achieve in our goal in life/career time goes too fast.

I have wanted to quit on myself as being a single at times due to so many reasons. One thing I have learnt is “Life is very tough and we are all sure to be in stable pain”

“The solution for this is to overcome and to win the situation is to admit and accept the pain and have a clear focus in our goals and vision”. We women have to fly again and again by spreading our wings just like phoenix bird do and prove ourselves to the world that we are capable.

Ask to yourself one lakh time, this one and only question. “Is my life is going to be too better if I quit from this situation or to face the situation and move on”.

Also in my life journey I have realise another important thing that there is a whole group of fellow people in the world around me going through the similar pain. Everywhere and everyone in this world are running in their life race just like me. It is not me alone running in the life race. Everyone is in the same track, but with different goals.

“Get recharged, backup again and move on trying with the newly found innovative standpoint from the past failures and win the race as each individual is unique”.

Hi Tiffany,

How are you doing, dear? Thanks for sharing your tenacious words of wisdom. I can definitely relate to this. As I'm approaching 50 next year, I'm definitely have more thoughts, like what have I achieved? What have I done with my life? Am I on the right trajectory? Should I be doing more? Blah, blah, blah. It's definitely a perception, mindset challenge. I catch myself thinking, if only I was here, or if only I had this, but the truth is if all that was in place, I would still be striving for more because that's who I am and how I'm made up. Yes, sometimes I can quiet and relax my ego more, and others days not so much. But you're very right that we can't give up.

I hope you're doing well, and having a great weekend, dear.

Dear Tiffany,
The absolute word is " recharge" . We can't afford to give up. We must run the race with endurance to the end.
We will do our best to drop all the weight that will pull us to give up.
Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend.
Regards

Dear Tiffany
Yes dear, it is very difficult to pass life in this world. So that giving up is not option we need to do struggle struggle and struggle in each and every step of our life. Because struggle make perfect. Look, chicken it should struggle during inside the eggs for coming out outside. Therefore, every animals, plants and other creatures have been doing struggles. Therefore, sometime, we should take it as natural phenomena.

Dear Tiffany,
You are an inspiration. Yes, "We women have to fly again and again by spreading our wings just like phoenix bird". We rise from the ashes to create what we know in our hearts is possible. Flying alongside you, dear sister.
