Live Your Dream: Article by Dr. Janatha Ramanathan

Every life is complicated. Every mind is a kingdom of unmapped mysteries.


Life is a mystery, not a puzzle. Mystery and misery proudly occupy the periphery of our life. So let us try to live it rather than trying to solve it. Problems pop up coalescing the ups and downs that border the continuum of life. The unexpected phenomenon takes place at any time. We try to correct our thoughts as we proceed further through the inert pages of life. Live your life to the fullest extent possible. A meaningful life is a construct to do with purpose, significance, fulfilment and satisfaction of life towards our chosen purpose. Once, we feel that we have found our purpose then have a reason to live and remain alive.

Life is made up of choices: some we regret, some we are proud of and some that will hurt us. Your career and your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. Start making different choices for a meaningful life. Create your ideal space. Believe in yourself. Find and use your voice more. Develop your mental fortitude. Express your heart loudly to the world. Let them learn from you how life is to be lived.

Serenity is not freedom from the storm but peace amid the storm. The multitude of things that happens in our life changes the course of our journey. The troubles strengthen us with a new perspective. We learn from our experiences. Don’t compare your own life with anyone else’s. You slide into unhappiness when you feel that others live better than yours, comparing your own reality to their surface. Each one has struggled with hardships and insecurities as you have gone through. Incidents and experiences helped them to reach this point in their life.

Life can be an exciting and exhilarating journey. Your life is in your hands and it is up to you, how the story of your life moves on. Everything starts within us and must end within us too. Hold on to your individuality and wear it with pride. Embrace your differences and brush off any criticisms. Start a new chapter of your life today; create, dream and then take into action. Forget what other people think. Be brave enough to follow your heart with commitment, pride and love. Your days will teach you how to deal with difficulties. Life is after all one big learning curve. Learn the intricacies carefully to tread over the curve or the smooth journey of life. Step into your own life and make an intention to re-write, start over and live rather than exist. Don’t dream your life; Live your dream.

Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass …
It’s about learning to dance in the rain.
