A cocktail party, an office meeting, best friend’s wedding, college prom night, or any other event we go to one thing is common, we all dress up well and want to be at our best.
Amongst the attire one thing is a surety, it makes you look complete and has things in order. It makes your shirt tucked up, your trouser plates look seam-less, it even adds a bit of style to your persona. It is the belt and the belt is kept in place by the #Buckle.
So off late I have been observing things from a mirror or introspection and I realised that just like the buckle, we all have somethings/someone in our life which holds thing together for us. While delving deeper into it I realised that most of us if not all are not even aware of that particular #Buckle in our life which has held us together and has been our cornerstone for living a sane life.
It goes unnoticed and what is even more surprising is that when the #Buckle is loosened or is broken or is not there anymore and your entire life goes for a toss, and to restore sanity we are mostly looking for other excuses/scapegoats to burden with the blame and give ourselves a feeling of contentment that we know the reason and we start chasing to resolve the false issue.
Though at times it is true for some of us that they are right about their buckle, and trust me when I say this those people are the luckiest one alive, the one’s who know what went wrong, for the rest of us it is simply a case of illusion and more importantly an ignorant one.
Think about it, what is that thing, person, achievement, belief, which is your buckle?
It can be your weekly late-night drive, your spouse, colleague looking up-to you, your favourite shirt, wedding ring, yearly vacation, religious beliefs, favourite scarf, a hug from your kids, visit to old age home, single blend scotch, it can be anything and is surely different for all of us. Some of us have one of them or at times a multiple of buckles holding us up.
One day if your #Buckle loosens up and you do not have it any more, you are not the same again, your identity takes a hit, you start questioning your life, you wander to resolve it but you do not know what is missing or has changed, just a feeling of weariness and utter chaos.
There is a high chance that your #Buckle has loosened up and hence the commotion you are witnessing, you are not at your optimum, people do not feel the warmth anymore, arguments at work and home a plenty, missing out on a lot of things which were earlier an essential part of you, we have all been there in the past or are experiencing something similar currently.
So my earnest request is to look deep within, talk to yourself, find out your #Buckle something which holds you up and make you who you are, before it loosens up and you are not even aware of either..
What was you #buckle and when did it loosen?
