The previous week, I had two similar conversations with two different people.

The first conversation was with my cousin. He was describing another cousin's life and commenting on how busy and schedule packed it was. Contrast that to my current life, it could be between fire and water. Total opposites.

The second conversation was with my friend. She, too, was describing her schedule for the previous weeks and how  schedule packed and busy it was. Again, contrast that to my current life, it could be between sunny and rainy weather. Total opposites.

If I was still the "old" me,
If I was still using the "old" mindset,
If I was still holding on to the "old" beliefs,

I would mind very much. Oh so very much that my life is so different from theirs and would do anything in my power to match their life with mine until it is on equal level or even surpass their level of busy-ness. I would even argue and try to make them see from my point of view. How sometimes taking a rest and not have anything scheduled the whole day is necessary. But now I will just nod and congratulate them.

Too often, society has equipped busy-ness and a jam packed schedule with living life to the fullest.
Too often, when left alone with their own thoughts, human have the tendencies to flee.
Too often, those around us have sneered when you live a quiet life.

Well, I say no more.

No more giving into other people's dogma.
No more giving away myself just to fit into society's fucked up mold.
No more giving up on my own dreams and own definition of what "success" means.

I hope you can do the same too.
