The First Step
Helping Hand-None of us remembers the first step we took as a child. Perhaps, it is one of the most cherishing memories of our childhood which are parents describe repeatedly to us. But I wonder what is so significant about that first step?
Is it that the first step signifies we can now walk on our own? Maybe, or maybe it denotes that we have now learned to move ahead and progress. It may be different things to different people. And that first step does not end there. In life we take many smaller steps and many first times.
The first time we went to school, the first time you rode a bicycle, the first time you aced the exams or flunked 😛 The first time you kissed! And many other first things. Cheers to all those, for it was a bold step that you took. Take that first step, for it is the boldest move.
You may not know what lies ahead, the things that are going to occur on the way are not comprehensible, don’t hesitate, do the move, take that first step.
The other day, I was waiting near the crossing to go to the other side of the road. I saw an old man, waiting for the traffic to stop for he wanted to cross the road. But the traffic was too fast for him to comprehend when to start walking across the road. His old age prohibited him from crossing the road. I wanted to help, but I was on the other side of the street.
Then I saw another boy of my age who approached the old man and offered help. This sight gave me an assurance that our generation is not forgetting its values and there is a sense of morality among all of us.
That helping hand proved that humanity still exists in this world and that no evil will ever uproot the core values imbibed among us.
Endure the Storm
The seasons of life change every moment and are just like the weather, highly unpredictable. No one can ever tell you what period of your life you will be facing no difficulties, no challenges. Rather, I observe that every day of life is a new challenge.
Every now and then life will keep on throwing challenges at you; your attitude towards these will decide how long these tough times will persist. If you take up the challenge and exert your cent percent you will be able to overthrow the problem overnight. But on the other hand if you take it the other way, maybe you will never get to the end.
Remember, The most challenging times bring us the most empowering lessons.
