On Seizing the Moment
Each new day brings on new challenges, new ideas, new aspirations, and with it new actions and deeds. It is so true that every action is but a mind-set. If you are keen on something, if you love something deeply enough, if you have firmly engrained goals, then you automatically strive for them. Every once so often, there is a feeling of trepidation, a hesitation of deciphering right from wrong, a negative thought that negates you. However, treat it as fleeting and transient, like everything is anyway, and there is no turning back. Someone has truly and wisely said that all the fun is in the journey and not the destination. This afternoon I sat in the public library browsing the latest issue of the Architectural Digest. It was a cool afternoon and the lake outside the library had its waters stirred up. There was a man fishing and I looked up every few minutes to check if he had caught anything while reading about Brooks Shield's new townhouse in New York and Giorgio Armani's newly decorated Swiss Alpine residence. Then there was an article on Istanbul and its exotic nature lying on the border of Europe and Asia. It was such an enthralling hour spent that I went home in high spirits. Several ideas flew through my mind while reading it which I immediately jotted down in the Notes on my Iphone; an absolutely ingenius invention by the Apple guru Steve Jobs, my hero.
