Life lessons from running

Most of the education happens with a goal in mind. You are told to study hard, perform well in exams to get into a good college. Once you enter the rat race it is all about landing a good job which would lead to a big house, car and other material comforts. I find no wrong in keeping a goal, probably it keeps you motivated. But it is very very important to enjoy the journey and do a reality check on whether you enjoy doing what you are doing.

I finished an early morning run today, the usual one , a chill in the air , greenary, birds and a rising sun. I enjoy being there , in nature, pushing myself and enjoying at the same time. Eventually what I will attain through running is just an outcome, as far as I am concerned, enjoying it is the most important part of it .

Yet another early morning run

    It is generally true that parents try to imbue in children to study hard to land a good job. We suppose each generation wish the next a better life. But it may not always be for material things. We all need to be contributing individuals in order to earn a living (becos nobody owes you one) and provide ourselves when we stop having the ability to earn a living. We think of it as making someone learn to fish, rather than giving them the fish.

  3. Totally agree, in a bid to attain our never ending goals, we miss out on so many aspects of life that would give us happiness.

  4. You are spot on about doing a reality check on enjoying the journey. A short but insightful post.

    What a lovely blog name – Ek raasta hai jindagi. It has a different ring from the old used adage, Life is a journey.

    And your blog is equally great – awesome images and fantastic content. Keep them coming.

    Love
