For The Greater Good ...

He who would accomplish little must sacrifice little; he who would achieve much must sacrifice much; he who would attain highly must sacrifice greatly.
- James Allen

Today is the 2nd of July. 26 years ago a very beautiful girl was born. And her Mom named her Lindsay. Yes, today is Lindsay Lohan's Birthday and as one of her die-hard fans, this is Me wishing her a Very Happy Birthday and Many Many Happy Returns of the Day! May she get all the happiness in the world and may all her dreams come true! I know there are many who don't like her but I am one of them who adores her because she is talented and I know that one day, she will prove all her haters wrong and she will rise and triumph. :-)

And now, Blog Time ...

As you read the quote I pasted at the top, My Blog has a lot to do with the words the Great James Allen said. Mostly focusing on 'Sacrifice'. This same time, last year, I decided to start writing My weekly blogs and when I started writing them back then, I never knew that this one year journey would bring so much of a change in Me. Yes, Time changes every man but I must say, My Blogs and the response I got from My readers has helped Me become a better person and take a step towards a better future. My birthday is coming up in a month and all I can is that I am proud of the change in Me. The transformation in Me and most importantly, the strength I have gained in these last 365 days. The Strength not only to change but also the strength to let things go and sacrifice the 'right-nows' for 'later-ons'. And letting go of the temporary happiness I achieved by doing the things that I wanted to do for the Greater Good ...

What does the Greater Good mean? There are many ways to explain this but no one meaning explains it. Does the Greater Good mean killing 100 hostages than letting the terrorists kill a million? Does the Greater Good mean that you let one soldier get left behind than risking the lives of the 10 more who will go search for him? Or does it mean to wait for an entire nation to do die until another country invades it and frees the people from the dictators tyranny? As I said, there are many ways you can see this and in a world where there are more 7 billion people, each one of us has their own opinion. For Me, it is not about Politics. It is not about the corrupt who take our money. It is not about the Evil which walks on this planet. It is about a War which all of us have in common. The War within us. The Choices that confuse us. Which sometimes make us go crazy and sometimes, even the paths we have to take. Trust Me, I have been there and I know it is not easy. Although My heart will say one thing, My Mind will say another and 90% of the time, I win and I feel very good about Myself but the thing is as time goes by, I realize that would I did and what I chose wasn't the right thing. It was only a temporary thing. But now I know that no matter how much we want things to happen in the moment, we have to let go of them ... For The greater Good.

There are so many things I want. I know, the list is endless. And the moment I get even one thing from that Want List of Mine, I see something else and put that on My Want List! I know, that the Want List will never end. But this isn't about My Want list from Santa Claus. These are the things that make Me happy on a daily basis. Of course, I would love to share My Wants with you but I have realized that there once every life time there comes a point in our lives when we are given the choice. The choice to choose the 'right-now' or wait for the 'Greater Good'. I mean the right-now is there, right in front of you and it is so good and tempting and you know it is yours but the greater good gives you more. The only catch is you gotto let go of the things you love right now in order to achieve the greater good. Trust Me, it ain't easy but sometimes, you just have to because you know, no matter how hard it is to Sacrifice the right now, that Sacrifice will be worth it. Yes, one day, it will be. And when that happens, you will be glad that you made the right choice. I know I will. 

Life is hard, I think I second that notion with each and everyone of you. We always want that special someone to text us. We all want to go out on a date with that Celeb we have a crush on, or drive that dream car, or learn that language and even get that Shoe we saw while shopping. There are so many things and it ain't easy letting them go when they can be yours. But life is only excited when you know and believe in the uncertainty of it. When you know that even though you don't know what is ahead of you, you have the strength in yourself to let go and wait for The Greater Good. That the Fight will always go on and We will always fight and sometimes life will put us in places where we thought we would never be. But that's the best part, isn't it? The unexpectedness of it! You never what will happen tomorrow. We all are here because of the Choices that we have made and we will continue going towards the path of the choices that we will make. The only question I ask you is this, Are you the 'Right-Now' person or the one who is willing to Sacrifice all the happiness that you have now for the 'Greater Good'?

This is Me, Mahaakshay Chakraborty and I am waiting for the Greater Good.

With All My Might,
Your No.1 Fan,
Mahaakshay Chakraborty.
