Original or Banal


The rays of the morning sun shine through the crack between the curtains. The daily alarm in the morning started its usual blare. You open your eyes, look up at the ceiling, and contemplate on the predictability of the day stretching ahead of you. Ten minutes pass you by. You step out of the bed and rush about doing what you did yesterday, the day before and the day before that.
Come the next day, you Click-Hold-Repeat.

Pause at the Hold today. Sit back and make a list of everything that you did ,even the smallest of things. Look for the one thing that elated you from the roots of your hair to the tips of your toes, the one thing that made you look forward to jump out of bed the next day and do it all over again, the one thing that illuminated, if I may use the word, you from within.

You know what the saddest part of the story is? Chances are, most of us would not find a single deed of ours, which fits even remotely to the description above. Even sadder is the fact that most of us would roll our eyes at the “superficiality” of the sketch I made above.

And, that is where we are wrong. Our minds have been plastered with a set of functions that we ought to perform to get to the top rungs of success, irrespective of whether they give us the kick from within.

Fast forward forty years down the line. When your mind is no longer as sharp as it used to be, when your form is not as agile as it used to be, what would drive your days then? Would you have to sit beside the window sill and scratch your head to find things that might spark your days again?

A verse from Alice in the Wonderland says,

“Little Alice fell down the hole,
bumped her head
and bruised her soul.”

But, little Alice never bruised her soul. She found a whole new world – an escapade into a place, which she would go on to call her own discovery. And it is what each one of us should do too.

This Innovision, come forward. Take the day off, wander and treat yourself to all the things it has to offer, you might find something that sets your rhythm right, not for that day, but for an ever after.

This Innovision, join us. Uncover your original self, Follow the call of Your Heart. Pursue it. Revel in it.
