Life screws you over when you least expect it. But then again, there’s a part of me that argues that life is completely full of ups and downs. You never know when things can go haywire, but you also don’t know when things can start getting better.
Life can make you a hero from zero and also blow you to smithereens. You’ve just got to go with the flow of it, says the 14 year old in me. But the 20 year old in me is too attached to the people in my life and the memories with them.
Today I learnt that absolutely nothing is in our control. Nothing. We cannot determine the factors, time or date of our birth or our death. We are puny compared to the forces at work in the Universe. And yet, we stroll around trying to carve out an empire for ourselves, owning things, showing off, being superior to others, not without realising that everything could end in an instant. We are all mortal. But what is more scary is that we are all ticking time bombs, ready to go out any second.
