Embracing the new

Sometimes people come into our life and we have a hitch that they were meant to be there, to serve some purpose, teach us a lesson, or to help figure out who we want to become. We never know who these people may be. May be a long-lost friend ‘friends’ via Facebook , or a stranger who seems to be always in a hurry each morning standing at the bus stop. But when we notice them, we know that very moment they will affect us in some profound way.

People we met and share success and downfall with, help to create who we are and we want to become.

Strange isn’t it?

When they love, they embrace us, when they hurt or betray, they teach us the importance of trust and hard meaning of being cautious. A moment of love, affection, and care make us calm,composed and confident. It fills our days with joy and happiness. A betrayal makes us cold,frustrated and shocked.

We humans are very sensitive yet we say we are strong and move on easily, knowing deep down that our emotions are fragile. Now, how we know that? We feel compelled to stay on a rigid pre – chosen path for our lives, even if we don’t want to. And why is it so? It revolves around our reclusiveness (which we generously say ‘self defense’), or simply we are afraid to experience something different from our routine.

Embracing the new in life is not about making unwise risks, but about taking chances for the quality of our lives. The new may not bring fame and fortune, but happiness we were longing for.

I read somewhere that people are like onions. Onions!!! Every now and then we have to peel off a layer to reveal a new facet of theirs’ , just to mention with every layer comes the tears , more importantly it adds a critical flavor to everything you do , if you do bad it will stink. Peeling an onion symbolizes new beginnings, afraid of tears but revealing a fresh new skin, ready to take onthe world!!

PS: Give every man thy ear but few thy voice. – Shakespeare.

    i wish it was this simple to embrace new …..but sadly its not ….ppl get so used to their set and old ways that even thinking new is to much to ask at times ….
    the reason being the new brings with it uncertainity..which usually scare ppl….it may b gud but knwing that it might b bad discourages ppl to make the move ….
    in the end u just need to b sure if the rush is worth the risk ..

    Agree , it is not simple to welcome new , but we should be open for it (*conditions apply , don’t loose yourself completely). Grass can be green on other side too.
    As I have mentioned accepting and embracing new one in life comes with the experience , you are cool if you have nice experiences , you hesitate if you still have bad ones.

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one. ~Elbert Hubbard, The Note Book, 1927

    The man who makes no mistakes does not usually make anything. ~Edward Phelps

    “You can clutch the past so tightly to your chest that it leaves your arms too full to embrace the present.”

    And this explains all 🙂 embrace the new 🙂
