Can i be Attentive enough ?

2 May

Every now and then i hear people talking of being so careful  and learning from their own actions and decisions etc. or being so observant in life that they will get things on their own.I have been with a bunch of people who always warn me of this and help me every now and then but giving me a reality check. Yesterday was yet another experience for me. I had decided to complete a few works before i finally lay off to sleep such as reading a portion of the book, complete some office works (which was a bit time consuming) and other chores. I reached home had dinner and decided to start off with the things after a 5 min break and decided to watch a sneek peak on a movie but in the course of time i got so involved in it and ended up watching up the movie. It was not so late after that also but had i been attentive towards the work i would have finished it then also

But involved in many thoughts and acting according to that i made a lot of plans for the completion of the work and eventually escaping from that situation which demanded my attention and efforts. A result of which was that i wasted more time before i fell of to sleep in getting frustrated and irritated on myself for being so careless before i finally got up and decided to do what ever was required of me.Even though it took a lot of sankalp but I made efforts to complete all the tasks that i had decided to accomplish.the best part of which was that i could now sleep peacefully without any pressure or tension in me. 

From this incident i learnt that it is always the thoughts that make you do anything and at the same time take you far away from what you ought to do.It is entirely on the person to decide that what does he allow to be an input to the mind. Either he can be careless(like i was earlier) and let things take up their own accord without making any efforts of his own and stay there complaining or he can be active and aware to make efforts now in this moment apart from any imagination no matter how intense they may be.Then only can something happen or else the life i am living will always be the same without any hope of a bit of change in it.
