Inspiration. When I think of the word, there are so many things that come in my mind. The world has been a source of inspiration to me. I don’t believe in ‘inspirational quotes’ or ‘inspirational movies’. They are experiences of a different person. The source of inspiration for me has always been the people around me.
There are so many stories around me. A guy who went on to achieve so much when born to a simple household with no facility. A girl who is making her family proud when every one of her relatives had written her off. A person who is working day and night to make his ends meet and yet is a proud father of someone who just got into a great college.
I seek inspiration from my family, my friends and those around me. These are the people who taught me to stand up when I fell down. These are the ones who taught me to dust myself when I hit a bump. These are the ones who taught me to not care about people who didn’t think I could achieve something. When I failed, these were the ones who told me to never lose belief in myself. When I seek for inspiration, I don’t look at some quote. Because, there are real people and their stories which inspired me to never give up.
Life teaches us so much, right? Yet, why is it that we choose to ignore so many of the lessons. There are things I have done in my life that I regret, but I am glad those things happened because they taught me so much. They taught me that past never matters. That past is a lesson which helps you achieve what you have always wanted. That past is best forgotten.
Next time you feel demotivated, close your eyes and forget everything. Feel yourself flying. Wings spread. Winds gushing against your face. It’s intensity making your eyes wet. The wind is against you. The storm forces you to stop, but you don’t. You keep moving, forward. Winds intensifying and clouds thundering. But you don’t give up. And when the storm is done and the wind is settled, you see the rainbow. Because, that my friend is what life is. There will always be a storm. But there always will be a rainbow. When you feel demotivated, think of the rainbow after the storm. You will know what you’ve always been working for. 🙂
