Life,slow down please…!!!
Well lets not make this formal. I’m
sure you already know me and I won’t bother asking you more about
yourself because you are mysterious and you wouldn’t divulge much about
yourself at this moment. I wouldn’t have written to you, but it’s sheer
reality that I am. And why am I writing? Well that’s the million dollar
question right? But I guess you already know why I am writing. And if
you are not clear with it let me tell you. I’m writing this because I
wanted to tell you something. Life, slow down a bit!
I know we’re living in the 21st century where everything moves with a
fast pace. But living in this fast paced world is kinda difficult. That
doesn’t mean I’m giving up. Wait, I’m not done yet. Difficult huh??? And
hows that you may ask. I know in this technology driven world
everything happens by the click of a mouse, everything is instantaneous.
That’s all easy right??? Sounds so, but it isnt. I’m not as fast as
you, so let me take my time to elaborate.
things do happen with a click of mouse, but since things are happening
faster I’ve more things do. So many more that I’m always in a rush. And
at times figuring out this tech driven life is time consuming and I’m
left behind in the race. I was a little girl just sometime back and now
Ive grown up. Hmmmm I miss my childhood. Wish you’d slowed down and I
could enjoy those days a little longer. I’m tired of the complexities of
being a grown up. And well yes the number of people who’ve come into my
life is more and people enter into my life quite fast. But I wish they
wouldn’t have to leave as fast as they came. If you would have slowed
down, I would’ve been happier. I could have enjoyed every little thing
and those joys could have lingered in my memory longer. But then I
couldn’t. No time you see. You may argue that since life’s fast, when
you have misunderstandings, you could put the past behind and move on
faster. But wait, if you were slower, there would be time for
explanations, time for understanding people and that means no
misunderstandings! And even if there were, we could sort it out
patiently you see.
Well I’m not telling you
that you need to slow down completely, but just a bit. A little slower
so that I can go by the road less travelled, so that I can enjoy the
sight of nature around. I could watch the glorious sunrise, the ever
changing sky of the day, the beautiful sunset and then catch a glimpse
of the gleaming moon and the twinkling stars. I could listen to the
chirping birds, the rustle of the wind. I could smile more often and
radiate smiles around. I could take time to be myself. I could enjoy the
little joys that come my way and enjoy with the people I love being
I know you like to teach us lessons the
hard way and that you are a hard teacher who gives the test first and
lessons later. And I do agree to face your challenges and problems
bravely. But I need some time to figure things out at times. So, please
be a little slower. Hope you consider what I’ve told.I’m awaiting your
reply. And I forgot to tell you something. Life, I do love you. Because
no matter what, you are my life and are precious to me! Love you life.
