Ok so Why a Fruitfly you ask ? Do you have any idea how awesome the life of a fruitfly is? I mean seriously
1. It parties all its life well basically on fruits with all its friends and then
2. Has an incredible orgy multiplies in seconds
3. Finally says tata to the world , dying on the sweet nectar of its love “The Fruit”.
Over indulgent ? YES but awesome .
I know its very random but if I could have a favorite pest it would be the fruit fly , while savoring a delicious juicy Summer Indian mango and of course fighting my claim with Ms. Fruitfly it got me thinking how awesome would it be if we all had that one privilege that the fruit fly has “a short life span”,what I mean by a short life span is the knowledge and belief that this is the only time available to you .
So here are
5 lessons learnt from a Fruitfly
1. Savor it like there is no tomorrow
Ok I won’t go all Master Oogway on you (kung fu panda reference , if you didn’t know) and I am not even close to living each day that way BUT the days that I do, its awesome ! See I know life isn’t perfect but when we are aware of each moment it kinda acts like a protective shield and you are not so vulnerable to the Drama Queen called life but its difficult to be in the moment all the time and that’s when the second point helps.
2. Find the fruit
Yes the legendary “Follow your passion”, see the fruitfly always finds the fruit ,one moment you’ve all chemical cleaned and room sprayed your home and the next moment there is a fruit partay going in that salad bowl,lesson learnt “Always find the fruit”,the most frustrating part sometimes is when you have yet not discovered your passion but be patient and repeat step 1 , gradually you will.Deep deep down we all know what we love even if its still a cloudy faint faraway concept , you know that you know !
3. Do it or Die trying
PERSISTENCE! isn’t that what the fruitfly is made of you shoo it spray it smash it but it keeps coming back and that is the same audacity that you should have when pursuing a goal , you started your diet and exercising and on day 4 fell sick and slipped? well buckle up and get going again ,you failed at this attempt? well no big deal learn from your mistake and do it right this time , there is always a second chance ,Just Do It (Yes deliberately going all NIKE on you)
4 .Make the move
Let’s accept it the fruitfly does not hesitate a second before approaching others of it kind needless to say the orgy that follows multiplying into swarms in your kitchen then why do you second guess so much , whether its the connection that you feel with this man or the idea that you have been inspired with for a while when the intuitive nudge comes from within don’t hesitate just act and take the plunge , least it will move you out of inaction.
5. Shit happens get over it
So the fruitfly gets all high on the fruit and had an orgy , 8 days later has 100,000 kids but its like “Eh,whatever come join the party kids”. See you are only human and bound to make mistakes but the longer you repent the shittier you feel about yourself , sabotaging your self esteem will only make it worse , so shake it off and move on even better find the humor in it.
That’s all for today
