What are we afraid of normally? In life, many a time we take one step forward and two steps backward. What pulls us back? What is our hesitation to embrace the unknown? We will like to ask something but words will fail us. We will like to write something but the pen will not move ( or our fingers will froze on the keyboard or touch screen). Is it our fear of failure or fear of rejection? In this journey of life, there is only one absolute truth. Once we are born, one day all of us will have to leave. Beyond that is unknown. So what are we afraid of? Why not to live in the moment and enjoy this journey of life to the fullest? Why to be chained or constrained? Caterpillars go into the cocoons, get liquefied and comes out as beautiful butterflies. It seems that we go into the cocoons of our comfort zones, get comfortable and refuse to come out. Like pigs, comfortable in their pigsties wallowing in the mud, we get comfortable in our comfort zones, however miserable those zones may be, and refuse to come out.
If we fail, so what? At least we have tried. If we are rejected, so what? At least we have asked.
Hope in this new year, all of us who are afraid to fly will come out of our comfort zones and soar high.
