Give it time

When I was a kid
A cute, innocent kid
I was nervous
Ask me anything
And I would start sweating
And it was so ingrained in my mind
That before anyone would come near me
I would start sweating
Such is life, my dear friend
Then I passed my academics
With the nervousness still within me
When I moved to a new city
Didn’t know the names of the places
Where to go?
How to go?
Whom to ask?
And it was all filled with the nervousness
And it still is
But the past lessons have taught me
That it has to be done
Something has to be done
If not confidently, I gotta do it nervously
And so, I do it
And the main difference now is
I sweat less during the buildup
To some new experience
Because previously I used to have
The outcome inscribed in my mind before jumping in
And this thought process used to bug me before its time
Now, there’s no conclusion anymore
There’s room for learning and enjoying it
And after reality, the conclusion is thought of
Good or bad, it had to be lived
And hence giving it time
And a bit of understanding
Has helped me learn some valuable lessons
So, people, what are you worried about? 😉

P.S.: Happy weekend to you all 😀 Today’s song is Call me Sir by Travie McCoy. If you have 1 hour time and want to use it to the maximum, please watch the below video of Yuval Noah Harari, author of Sapiens.
