What’s life without ambitions , apparently meaningless and nothing can beat the joy of fulfilling your dreams but do you never feel burdened by your own goals , your standards of being good enough ;because I do . I believe that the path to self – betterment is never ending and that is the beauty of it ; however at moments I am worn out of being my harshest critic and all I want to do is to switch off and restart myself with positivity. Isn’t the world , it’s perceptions and the people around us enough to make one feel inferior, clueless and amiss ; there’s no need for ourselves to join the queue to demean our own selves even further.
I am conscious of the fact that I am fully responsible for the person I am ,but at times I get exhausted of trying relentlessly . In those moments I take a break from being the best ( or trying to be the best , both are equally admirable) by being satisfied with who I am and where I am . I would like to add that this feeling doesn’t come easily but when it does , I feel like I am breathing freely as I don’t have a chain of ‘try harder ‘ around my neck . In times like this , I realise how lighter I feel and how blessed we are just to be alive .
I am aware that only I can work towards leading a more fulfilling life ; even so , there’s no harm in taking a break from your ambitions and aims for a little while just to refresh yourself so that you can return to the task with more vigour and motivation.

As I sit here, drunk and alone
With this monkey by my side
I can’t help but think about my own
Exhaustion, my endless fight to abide
By the expectations I have set
For myself, my ambitions and goals
But sometimes, I can’t help but fret
Feeling burdened by the weight of my soul
The world and its perceptions, they can be harsh
Making me feel inferior, clueless, and adrift
But I must remember, it’s not only the external
That can bring me down, but my own internal rift
I am the only one who can work towards
A more fulfilling life, that much is true
But there’s no harm in taking a break, a short pause
To refresh and return with renewed vigor, it’s due
So I’ll sit here, with this monkey by my side
And take a moment to breathe, to let go
Of the chains that bind me, the constant strive
To be the best, to constantly grow
For in this moment, I am enough
Just as I am, in my imperfection
And when I return to the race, it will be with love
For myself, and my never-ending quest for self-improvement
