What Do You Want To Be Remembered For?


Okay so I tend to relate almost every thing in my life to Bollywood Movies. Maybe that is not realistic, but I find it very intriguing. I learn some major life lessons from Bollywood movies, and I value some of them very highly.

The focus of the blog post today is the idea of being remembered. When you wake up in the morning do you get wrapped up in the daily stressors that lie ahead of you or do you actually take a moment to think about what it is that you will accomplish today in order to fulfill your passion?

Do me a favor…forget the money, forget what your family thinks, forget what your friends think..what do YOU think? Just try asking yourself this question repeatedly and jot down the ideasΒ that come to mind.

Here is a song from an AMAZING Bollywood movie which teaches a very essential lesson about life (A special thank you to Melody Corner for the translations). You can watch the song HERE

Behti Hawa Sa Tha Woh
He was like a flowing wind

Udti Patang Sa Tha Woh
He was like a soaring kite

Kahan Gaya Usse Dhoondo
Where did he vanish, lets find him

Humko Toh Raahein Thi Chalati
While the paths always lead us

Woh Khud Apni Raah Banata
He always made his own path

Girta Sambhalta Masti Mein Chalta Tha Woh
Sometimes he fell, sometimes he balanced but always went ahead cheerfully

Humko Kal Ki Fikar Sataati
We were always worried about tomorrow

Woh Bas Aaj Ka Jashn Manaata
He always celebrated today

Har Lamhe Ko Khulke Jeeta Tha Woh
He lived every minute fully

Kahan Se Aaya Tha Woh
From where did he come

Chhooke Hamare Dil Ko Kahan Gaya Usse Doondo
Where did he vanish, touching our hearts

Sulagti Dhoop Mein Chhaaon Ke Jaisa
He was like shade in scorching sun

Registaan Mein Gaaon Ke Jaisa
He was like an oasis in a vast desert

Mann Ke Ghaav Me Marham Jaisa Tha Woh
He was like the medicine for a wounded heart

Hum Sahme Se Rehte Kuwein Mein
We were limited to the well

Woh Nadiya Mein Gote Lagata
He would do somersaults in the river

Ulti Dhara Cheerke Tairta Tha Woh
He used to swim against the waterfall

Baadal Awara Tha Woh
He was like a carefree cloud

Yaar Hamara Tha Woh
He was our friend

Kahan Gaya Usse Dhoondo
Where did he vanish, lets find him

You know when I look at life, I want to be remembered for making others laugh, smile, and for changing lives. It is so easy to let life control you,Β but cherish the small things in life and when you look back twenty years from now you will only smile at how you lived life.

What do you want to be remembered for?

Until next time,
