A Journey Through the Pages of Life

The Goal Chaser
25 September 2023

"The purpose of our lives is to be happy."

—Dalai Lama, XIV [Link
India Today, September 30, 2021

This profound quote by the Dalai Lama underscores the significance of happiness as the ultimate purpose of our existence. It serves as a guiding light on our quest to live a fulfilling life.

Have you ever picked up a book and felt transported to another world, only to snap back to reality hours later, wondering where the time went? Recently, I found myself in such a literary trance, lost in the depths of a compelling story. During one of these moments, as I glanced at the clock, a stark realization dawned on me: time is a relentless sprinter.

As the pages turned and the clock's ticking became more pronounced, I couldn't help but contemplate the brevity of life. We often find ourselves trapped in the daily grind, chasing deadlines and meeting obligations while neglecting a crucial aspect of existence—the pursuit of joy and happiness. It's not a luxury; it's a necessity.

Regret is an unwelcome companion. It often emerges from the shadows, reminding us of opportunities missed and passions left unexplored. It serves as a poignant reminder that life is too short to be lived with reservations. We should seek happiness and engage in endeavours that, when we look back, we won't regret.

As we embark on this journey, let us remember that life's clock is always ticking. Every moment is a chance to make choices that align with our desires and aspirations. Pursuing happiness should be a deliberate act, not a fleeting wish.
