Is it not that the more we say ‘No’ to our optional activities, the more we tend to be responsible (or may be more attentive also) to rest of our acts?

Can we find time to set aside all our occupations for a while and decide as to what is optional among all the ‘taken for granted’ mandatory things? Do we have calms to realize that almost everything we do without looking back could all be ‘not so important’ in many ways except the only one way we considered?

While populating the ‘to-do’ list ever enthusiastically everyday, what we set apart as optional is our own living! Other way round, if things that we do do not make our everyday life enjoyable, harmonious and blissful for us and also for people around, then is it not the time to reconsider our own choices, beliefs and self-image?

Fortunately, I kept myself away from doing many things (activities) I really didn’t love. Be it academic, professional or personal, I could avoid doing things I didn’t enjoy. In a way, I started growing with my choices made - of course, these choices were made instinctively or intuitively. Lately, I like to believe my choices have started becoming more ‘rational’ and sometimes miserable as well!

As with everyone else, I also happened to have undergone phases of development and hopefully that journey has continued. I have come to realize that variety of activities in addition to formal class-room education are not only necessary but essential to one’s overall development. Here is a self-cooked story to further explain this point… Click here. (Will pop-up a new window with a png image file)
