Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.
Shot at 39,000 feet somewhere between Mumbai and Bangalore! 🙂
If Helen Keller could look at life as a great adventure, do we really have an excuse not to live life to the fullest?
So, at 39,000 feet above the ground, I realised that life looks and feels not very different from when you’re on terra firma. It’s all in one’s mind that one lives, for the most part of one’s life. And, yet, how often we ignore the mind at the cost of pursuing other external things.
This shot was taken during my weekend trip to Mumbai, last Saturday. A day dedicated to taking a forced break from everything routine, for the spouse and me. We caught the morning flight, reaching Mumbai by noon, enjoyed lunch at a popular cafe, met up with a few friends, watched three brilliant performances at the NCPA, spent precious moments by the seaside, with a hazy skyline in the distance, ending the evening with a lovely dinner. It was so therapeutic—that forced break that day—to throw routine to the winds, and indulge oneself by living in the moment and being in the moment. I wonder why we never thought of this earlier? Well, never too late, as they say.
And as I sign off, I leave you with Paulo Coelho’s wise words—
If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine, it’s lethal.
If you’re anything like me, waiting for a forced break, please don’t just think about it. JUST DO IT. That’s probably what you need the most right now. There never will be time. We HAVE to make the time for it.
