When you can’t fall asleep..

Every night since a long time, I stay up till late. I think of all my flaws, my weaknesses, my strengths, my problem areas. Random thoughts keep coming to me. They force me to get up and take my life seriously and I do. I get all restless, I take a pen and paper and start writing things. In that moment I am full of zeal. I wanna leave a mark on this world. I wanna be important. I wanna be all the things that I have always wanted to be.

And just when the sun plans on rising, I sleep. I sleep and then I wake up completing ignorant of my last night thoughts.

Today, like many nights, I am scared to fall asleep because I don’t know how seriously will I take my dreams tomorrow. The other day my cousin said that motivation only comes from within. He compared it to an egg. If someone puts force, egg breaks but if you leave it aside, untouched, a life will emerge out of it.

I am sure there are many like me waiting for the spirit in them to break open all the mental barriers. I want you all to know that it is okay. As long as these thoughts are keeping you awake, you are on the right track.

Be a little tough on yourself. Keep walking because once you stop you’ll have to go through the entire process again. The beginning won’t be easy but when the beginning will come to an end, life will begin to get better.

Good Luck!
