Have you ever felt something is missing in life? Have you ever felt that you are the most lucky one of all with roses along the way but still with an empty space somewhere?
Either we achieved something which we never dreamed or we might not get the things we desired…
There are three girls in a room of an apartment. All working in different fields, each with her own laptop. They live casual life mostly, routine..Nothing special! They come and go to office daily and get back to their shared room in evening, take dinner and then dig in to their own laptop screens.
Girl1 is a daydreamer! Girl2 is bold and cool in nature. Girl3 is childish in her way.
Girl1 feels that she is most happy and lucky girl in all of them but still finding something – don’t know what, where!. Mostly finds the way to escape from the group of friends. She likes to enjoy on a secluded beach.
Girl2 doesn’t prefer to speak much but she is very good at nature and a good listener! Likes both isolated state as well as being in a group of friends.
Girl3 likes to hang out with friends, messing around and so..She is more of emotional than other of the two. She likes to bring people together and enjoy in a group but plans never happened accordingly due to different schedules of her other two roommates.
Time passed away, days passed and so on… They still have the same routine in their life! How sad!!
For Girl3, this is most boring phase now. She thought why they are not so “close friends” even if they stay together since so long…why she cant go out with them on weekends…
Finally she decided to change their boring routine and life.
One fine evening, Girl3 returned back and it was Friday evening. She brought a simple camera and started a photo shoot suddenly in her room as she entered. Others two were busy in their own laptops as usual in some work or some entertainment, trying to fill their loneliness with social medias or so…
Initially they were little disappointing but Girl3 continued to break the ice between them. Gradually there was a total involvement of all of them in the room, first time not on laptop screens but with one another. They clicked girlish snaps, danced together on music, recorded silly videos and fun started entering their mind and thus their lives too!
They shared, laughed, cried, hugged and now they are “close friends”!
Girl1 thought – is this what was missing in my life? Was I scared to share my feelings? was it so easy for us to be friends?
This is a simple story which is common in many of us. Sometimes we may have good people around us but yet we try to find other people elsewhere depriving ourselves from initiating or communicating with others resulting in loneliness. There are very few like Girl3 in the story who likes to be attached with relations, friends and not the digital world! She understood that she has to be a creator to develop that affectionate environment in her room. Rest of both girls might be thinking same but couldn’t do anything for that? might be uncertain of what to do, what others will think or ‘they wont understand me’ feeling, or irresolute nature?
Whatever reason could be! Lets not try to blame “TIME” always. More often we never try to make ourselves happy, actually! We may have some good people around us and we might never noticed them! That emptiness in our life can be filled up just by making others happy, really. Always put some efforts to make yourself happy & jovial, You never know life can be more thrilling than what you living now!
Don’t try to run away from your life, situations or problems, don’t wait for that ‘someday’ to live the life you always desired. Just be simple, take it easy, chill and be happy!
Don’t postpone living!
