Does Planning work every time in Life?
There are basically two kinds of people you can categorize on the basis of attitude of theirs towards their day-to-day tasks and activities. One group includes the people who are pretty concerned and particular about each and everything going on in their lives. And the other group of people includes the ones who take everything very lightly. It is no doubt that planning in life is required to a very large extent but life offers us with certain unpredictable situations that planning doesn’t work really. Life is unpredictable. So, it is just better to live every moment and enjoy life to the maximum, not getting worried about things. This unpredictability adds flavor to our lives truly.
“Lighten up, just enjoy life, smile more, laugh more, and don’t get so worked up about things.”
― Kenneth Branagh
Life is Meant to be Lived in the Present
You will have no questions on the notion that the actual beauty of life is felt when we start to live in the present, without concentrating on anything about the past or the future. As the life is unpredictable, you will have no idea on what is coming next and how to react to it. But not to dwell in these things is the best solution possible. Through this, you get to feel the essence of life.
“Do not dwell in the past; do not dream of the future; concentrate the mind on the present moment.”
The Unpredictability Adds Flavor and this needs to be Realized
As it is quite rightly said, ‘Acceptance is the key to happiness’, let that be any situation. Living in the present along with acceptance ability is the need of the hour. We must realize the fact that the unpredictability adds flavor to our lives; without the various uncertainties in the life, we fail to value it to the proper extent and it loses its meaning as well. So start to believe that life is unpredictable and let go of the planned life and accept the one that comes to you.
“We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.”
― Joseph Campbell
The End Note: It All Comes Down to Our Prospective Towards Everything for a Happy Life
In a nutshell, we can conclude that as the life is unpredictable, and we have no idea or guarantee on what will occur at the next second, the key to a happy life is to live in the present and start enhancing our prospective towards dealing with each and everything life offers to us. If you look at it, living a happy life is very simple; it depends solely on us and our mindset. The unpredictability of life is truly a lesson at times and it is indeed the compulsion to run the natural cycle of human life. Without this, life ceases to be a life without flavor.
“Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself; in your way of thinking.”
― Marcus Aurelius
