Sitting there at the railroad crossing watching the very slow train go by pondering on whether I should turn off my car or keep it on and wait for this little obstacle to pass by. I decide to turn off my car and as soon as I do I see the last boogie slowly pass by. This experience made me ruminate on a concept of continuing to try at anything but then giving up at the last minute right when you’re about to reach your goal. Yes, this was just a train but what if this was “the” train of my life that was going to take me on a ride that may fulfill my wildest dreams.
I suppose I would never know unless I kept trying until the end. I saw the red railway poles moving in an upward direction as soon as I shut my car off, indicating that each train or path can turn into a new beginning, a new ride, a new journey only if you don’t give up at the last minute. I don’t want that guilt of not following through in life or giving my goals the best shot. So next time I’m not only going to have patience at the cross roads but will catch that train and see where it takes me.
Well here I am, finally sitting down in front of my computer finally blogging. After long deliberation, I’m entering into the social media arena. For many months I’ve been procrastinating by convincing myself it’s not the right time or that someone would take my data. Am I really so popular that anyone would do that or am I afraid of being criticized or am I just another aspiring artist who wants to make his mark in the world or perhaps I’m just lazy? As you can see, there could be a million excuses for my procrastination, but it’s not about making my mark as one of 7 billion global citizens. (Although, I wouldn’t be upset if that happened!) Rather, it’s about forming a haven for happiness and self-progress by sharing whatever I’ve learned, observed and experienced so far and expressing how I’m moving from where I’ve been to where I continue to be. I realized my true intention; I want people to benefit from this blog. So if I don’t try I’ll never know. I hope you find my musings amusing!
Here’s a brief bio. I grew up in the ever expanding city of Corona, California. Both my parents are from India, but I was born here in the “United” States of America. I graduated from UCLA with a Sociology degree. I like writing and have many goals and visions for the world our children will grow up in one day!
This website Happy Humanity!?!, consists of knowledge I’ve gained from over the past 2 years to 20 years or more, since much of my learning comes from an accumulation of my past coupled with my present understanding of it (change can be constant or captured, the choice is yours). This blog will become a free encyclopedia that touches on all facets of life, from life’s start to life’s end and life’s every simple and challenging day in the middle, which is actually life’s magnificence itself. An “absolute” happy, peaceful and Utopian humanity may never be possible, as our imperfection is our beauty. Yet, in order to get to an awakened evolved global society, we have to start with a happier more fulfilled self, deep down under the surface. It starts and ends with the self, all you have is “x” amount of time left in the middle. You may be billionaire Bill Gates or the happy hard working homeless guy cleaning windshields at the gas station, but looking through the clean glass from inside the vehicle beyond the “change” in your pockets is eventually what will transport you to happiness. We all need sustenance but I believe it’s of no value without happiness, health or wealth which comes in many forms.
