Life others told you is that:
You come to this world.
Toil hard and get educated.
Get a good job.
Then you’ve kids.
You become a machine to handle stress & responsibilities.
By the time your kids become self-sufficient, you start getting old.
Your kids leave you for higher studies, work, leaving you two alone.
You leave this world.
What’s the meaning of life, you may ask if every single one of us has to follow this pattern of slipping into oblivion?
This is the story no one’s going to tell you, but you will experience for sure:
When you came as a bundle of joy to your parent’s life.
The excitement of carrying the school bag for first time.
Standing outside the classroom with your friends as punishment.
Crushing on that girl from college while your friend gives you company.
Getting rejected in a job interview & celebrating failure with a momo party with friends.
The time you did something you’re afraid of doing.
Getting over that scratch on your new car.
Decorating your new home.
Cleaning pads of your little kids. And going to office tried the next day.
Shedding a tear joy watching your kids dancing at annual function.
Taking that weekend trip with your wife, while your kids are away.
Stealing a kiss from your 40 year old partner when your kids are home.
Farting unapologetically and then spraying the deodorant while your wife screams.
Completing that marathon at the age of 60.
Telling stories to your grandchildren.
Being successful when you watch your kids prosper in life.
Learning to operate that new gadget from your grand-kids.
Life is in the little things.
And only little things matter because one day you’ll look back and realized that those were the big thing.
