No matter how long you have been doing something, if it is not something that you like immerse in, or if it does not consume you, it is pointless.
. Have the courage to seek what is your one true calling – and nourish that.
. Half-hearted work, half-hearted love also means a life half-lived.
. There is no point in building a track-record in a life or work, which is not authentically you or aligned to your purpose.
. You have no one to please but your own self.
. A FULL life. A FULL love. Never settle for anything less.
A Half-hearted Life?
The lockdown has forced all of us to internalize our thoughts and emotions – some things within us have shifted permanently. Introspection has led to all of us reveal some of our deepest selves. Some people have started cooking, some painting, some singing. And why not? To be able to nurse and nurture your true inner calling is the best gift that you can ever give yourself – the highest act of selflove. Doing the opposite is actually self-denial. But how many of us are fortunate to be guided towards our true calling? A lot of us waste some of the most productive years – trying to be or become what we are not meant to, in the first place. Worse is trying our best and sacrificing our passions to take a deep dive into something in which we only are about half interested. There’s only sorrow written down the path – yet, even as so many have written about it, spoken about it – it just continues. Such an unhappy existence that is. Parental or peer pressure are main reasons that push us to live up to someone else’s expectations. Many just consciously or unconsciously choose to do things which do not consume them passionately and thus end up in half-hearted careers, half-hearted relationships and half-lived lives.
