Senthamil Things:Life

Written By: Senthamil Stefi

As a child you become acquainted with a routine, a sense of pattern. Things always seem to be in order. Things seem to be very well structured and planned. But as you grow up you begin to realize that the sense of order, that sense of plan increases in entropy and sometimes even causes your mind to spiral down into a very dark place. But you see, this is life. Life is about changes. As humans, we are wired to resist change. Change gives us anxiety, a sense of fear of the unknown. Our minds try to force us into a state of retreat. It is ultimately up to our will power to push through. Change is what allows us to grow as human beings. Life is about adapting to those changes and persevering and becoming the best “you” there can be. In no means am I saying it will be easy because honestly it won’t be. But after the initial steps and several pitfalls into a very dark place, it’ll all be worth it in the long run. That being said, in life never stop setting goals, though they may change progressively with time. Never stop setting them and re-setting them. Don’t let the dark place pull you down. Don’t sell yourself short and live for others and the reputation that comes along with it. Choose a career path that makes you happy. That does not necessarily mean it’ll make others happy in the moment but that doesn’t matter. At the end of the day it’s “your” life and the sky is the limit. I know along the way people will shoot you down, but that doesn’t mean what they say is true. You are your biggest critic…remember that. Believe in yourself because you have the potential for greatness. No child is born innately smart. Expertise in various fields are skill sets that are achieved over time with consistency and determination, whether it be Mozart or Steve Jobs, they weren’t born intelligent. They were born just like you and I. It was their will power to succeed and to persevere that led them to greatness. At the end of the day no matter who you are, no matter what age you may be ….. your destiny lies within your own hands. Don’t sell yourself short because you’re FAR MORE than you think… trust me. So don’t be afraid of change. Take a risk and become the king to your own chessboard.
