Dear Diary: Glory of unshared experiences

Travel and tell no one,

live a true love story

and tell no one,

live happily

and tell no one,

people ruin beautiful things.”

– Kahlil Gibran

Dear Diary,

When I tried to dig deep to understand what the famous poet says, it comes to me that there are some feelings we must retain in their immaculate glory of being an unshared experience. Travel, love and being truly happy are the feelings everyone experiences in unique ways that cannot really be understood by everyone.

Travel opens doors for you to know the core of life. If you pay attention, you get to explore life, people and the mysteries of the universe. You also get to know how insignificant your sorrows are and how short this life is if you live joyfully.

When it comes to love, every single person in this world experiences love as per his/her nature please notice that your experience of love is yours alone. You can very well expand the boundary of your love if you are willing.

As for a happy life, each one of us needs to find out what makes him/her happy. Happiness to me is writing this article while happiness to you may mean reading my post. For some of us, happiness is in owning material things, for others it is experiencing life to the fullest. To some people, happiness is living a family life, for others, it comes from not getting trapped in a family and to some, it may come from making the entire world their family.

When you try to live life your own beautiful way, especially if it is not as per the conventional way (read rat race), there will always be good number of people to advise you on how to live their concept of a happy life. Perhaps that is the reason why Kahlil Gibran says, “live a happy life, and tell no one.” For each one’s happiness too is solely his/her own.
