‘Every cloud has a silver lining’- the most contradictory idiom, according to me. It is one of the most popular sayings which means never lose hope, difficult today leads to better tomorrow. The origin of the idiom traces back to 1634 and was given by John Milton.
After this, so many similar meaning idioms came such as, ‘After storm comes the calm’, ‘whatever happens, happens for good’,’every negative occurrence has a positive aspect to it’ etc.
Well those bad times can be well compared to the clouds.But sometimes those dark clouds just lead to a big storm which leaves huge destruction. The destruction caused is irrevocable. Even if it could be reverse, it just takes a lot of time and sometimes leaves permanent damage. The damage caused is heartbreaking and sometimes leads to death.
The dark clouds revolving around the mind can be depressing. It is up to a person how they shoo the dark clouds away so the Sun can shine happily again. It is the time when everything feels irritating and you just don’t feel like doing anything. Deep inside there is a realisation that it’s just simply waste of time and you are the one who has to put that realisation to action. It requires will power. Just take an initiative. It’s easy to say than do. But trust me, the same is happening to me. Just waiting for the storm to get over. It’s even more frustrating when you forcefully do a work but that is the first step.
I may find the idiom contradicting and not so true but there is no harm in trying. I guess the storm will be over soon and I will see the Sun shining again.
It’s never too late,
My best friend said this in the phase,
When thoughts were in doubt
And future was on stake.
Dreams are like poetry in motion,
If you don’t realise them, my friend
They will turn into
This is the dogma of the world.
Follow your dreams, make your own path.
Then each day will be a steam bath.
Why don’t you realise?
Happiness will be the ultimate prize.
The goal, the prize you always craved,
It can lead to your name being engraved.
It’s never too late,
To realise your euphoric fate.
At the end,
Age is just an illusion
That shouldn’t be misused
For your dreams’ avulsion.
Are you triggered when people call your passion a “side” activity?
I don’t know if I am using correct term but side activities are basically the passion or the hobbies that a person pursues. For some people it may not be appropriate to call their activities a hobby or even side.
They can include blogging, dancing, singing and various other forms of art, sports etc. Being in the final year of the high school, the term puts me into state of dilemma. I may sound crazy but if you are an artistic or active kind of person who is overburdened by the study, you may get it.
Aren’t these so called “side activities” be enough to be just more than a hobby or passion. People say follow your passion, but why those same people question the promising future in them.
Being academically qualified may sound safe and secure but what’s the fun if you aren’t happy or satisfied. This is basically hypocrisy (did I just overdid it???). If a person has full capabilities and is motivated enough, I think it can be secure as well, maybe struggling for a few. But the patience kept during the struggle time is the actual measurement of the desire. And isn’t it worth it? I failed twice in blogging.
I don’t think that mocking at people or saying that they are stupid to pursue it is a smart idea.
It is said that, ‘a little knowledge is dangerous”, it must be said for a reason.
When not aware about the things how can a human be a superior judge for it. Maybe its time to do something and not be swayed by the ideas of others.
