By the time you reach adulthood, this world will leave no stone unturned to make you realize that you are not special. You have struggled into existence, and are now slipping silently out of it.
This is the story people will often tell you:
You come to this world.
Toil hard and get educated.
Get a good job.
Then you’ve kids.
You become a machine to handle stress and responsibilities.
By the time your kids become self-sufficient, you start getting old.
Your kids leave you for higher studies, work, leaving you two alone.
You leave this world.
What’s the meaning of life, you may ask if every single one of us has to follow this pattern of slipping into oblivion?
This is the story no one’s going to tell you, but you will experience for sure:
Life is when you came as a bundle of joy to your parent’s life.
Life is the excitement of carring the school bag for the first time.
Life is standing outside the classroom with your friends as punishment.
Life is crushing on that girl from college while your friend gives you company.
Life is getting rejected in a job interview and celebrating failture with a momo party with friends.
Life is the time you did something you’re afraid of doing.
Life is getting over that scratch on your new car.
Life is decorating your new home.
Life is cleaning pads of your little kids, and going to office tired the next day.
Life is shedding a tear of joy watching your kid dancing at annual function.
Life is taking that weekend trip with your wife, while your kids are away.
Life is stealing a kiss from your 40 year old partner when your kids are home.
Life is farting unapologetically and then spraying the deodorant while your wife screams.
Life is completing that marathon at the age of 60.
Life is telling stories to your grandchildren.
Life is being successful when you watch your kids prosper in life.
Life is learning to operate that new gadget from your grandkids.
Life is in the little things.
And only little things matter because one day you’ll look back and realize that those were the big things.
