Back to Future

A man by nature is a fool,When its hot he wants it cool
When its cold he wants it hot,Always wants what is not!

Reading it the first time brought a smile to my face...but reading it over and over made me realise how true it is.
This has been my story and I think everyones at every point in life. If i have to think back I have mostly wanted to get something so bad and when i actually get there I feel .."damn it was alot better without this".

When you are in school, you want to get out of school so badd...coz you simply hate studying for those exams and missing out on many SO CALLED IMPORTANT things then...And then when the time comes for you to go to college..after the first few exciting days..we all yearn to go back to school times...coz we miss those good old days..if not that then its the desire to get out into the big bad world..start working...earn money...do things as you please...
Well that day comes too...but we are too engrossed thinking about what we want next rather than enjoying the present time for which we waited so eagerly until yesterday..

The list goes on...the cycle continues...the wants and needs seem never ending!

Whenever I try to enjoy the present my mind seems occupied with thoughts of the future..There are very few times when I truly enjoy the present w/o worries,concerns about future...and it makes me happy from within...

Take a moment once in a while to live for the moment. Let's just say that "worrying about tomorrow" is an ingredient of life which we all have to taste

Lets all pause, take a deep breath
All our worries lets put to death
For once, let our mind not stray
Wish you all have a nice day.

How true.. The logic can even be extended to my son wanting to shave at the age of 5 and me hating the thought of shaving every morning..
And the fact of wanting what we do not have is true too!!
That is the reason we miss you so !!

But this trait in us...its the proverbial double edged sword ...isnt it ?

Doesnt let us be happy... yet is the motivation to achieve more.

Takes away your peace of mind but makes you strive for better things.
