Steal the moments from time

Have you ever felt like your life is becoming a strict diet plan you are following under the pressure of your gym instructor. Same diet everyday and you feel sick of it and you want to munch on that chocolate cake you saw last week in a bakery shop downtown. It’s funny how human mind gets used to routines and stuff sometimes and by the time we realize, it’s too late to go back. I have a 9-5 job and one day when I came back from work and was sipping coffee and going through pots of unknown people on Instagram, thinking when will I be able click pictures like that, I realized I don’t have time for myself. My busy schedule has stolen me from myself and replaced it with a machine, which is doing exactly like it’s programmed to do. I remembered that I like to do sketching sometimes, although I am not very good at it. I love nature and I wasn’t able to connect with it for a while and  I felt that I am not doing what I like to do as a person and most importantly as a human being. I am sure sometimes you have given a thought about why we are here in this big universe. I have thought about it many times while taking long drives in my car and I wonder we are like dust particles in this big universe and are we supposed to live life like a machine and die or are we here for a reason? The answer I get from within myself is we are here to live our lives to the fullest. All you have to do is, steal moments from time to spend time with your best friend, to sit in a bench surrounded by nature, to sing your favorite song like no one is listening, to help the beggar you see on your way to work, to admire a beautiful flower, to fall in love with a stranger, to feel ten emotions at a time and the list goes on. I think we are here to steal these moments from time, which is running like hell and we have to make the most of it. I don’t know if we get a second life, and honestly somewhere deep inside I don’t think we  come back to live again. The day you realize this, you will know exactly how to steal moments from time to do little things to make yourself and others happy. You will smile more, you will look beyond small problems and you will feel more connected with yourself.
Sometimes, I forget that my job or work is not everything and I can have a life beyond this also, but whenever I remember I try to make the most of my time. Half the time of our lives we keep worrying about work burden, responsibilities, relationship problems and many more issues. Stop and think for a while, you are not here to worry, you are here to live and to smile. Life is not a bed of roses and I know that but we should not forget to live while we are here. Steal moments from time and you will never get caught for such a sweet crime, I guarantee that.
