Sometimes you have to ignore few things in your life to keep your life going on smoothly and make yourself happy.
As a river can’t stop flowing taking all the big rocks and small pebbles into consideration while moving in its own way …..Same is the rule for life.
“Ignorance is bliss” is a phrase coined by Thomas Gray , a famous poet and historian in his poem – Ode on a Distant Prospect of Eton College
He writes in the last lines of the poem –
To each his sufferings: all are men,
Condemn’d alike to groan—
The tender for another’s pain,
Th’ unfeeling for his own.
Yet, ah! why should they know their fate,
Since sorrow never comes too late,
And happiness too swiftly flies?
Thought would destroy their Paradise.
No more;—where ignorance is bliss,
‘Tis folly to be wise.
Ignorance to me is sometimes bliss !!!
Yes , Ignorance is bliss sometimes.
Ignore those people who doesn’t believe in you , in your capabities and always doubt about your achievements.
They want to divert your attention from your work.
Ignore those who laugh on you because they are jealous of you. They want to be like you , but they can’t. They are frustrated as they have not achieved anything in their lives.
Ignore whose say you to stop. They can’t walk a mile so they don’t want you to a take a step forward.
World always give importance to those who do not get tired even after they follow the same routine. Time doesn’t stop ! Sun never get tired !
Ignore the outer world to awaken you inner world. Live for yourself.
Ignore everthing that can block your mind and make you incompetent to reach to your goal.
Recently I have found a very good video taking about the same. Do watch it !
Take what is important , consider what is helpful , believe what brings positivity and you will be on the top of the world , standing happily enjoying the fruit of your labour.
From there look down on all those whom you ignored once on your path. They are still there , with no sense of satisfaction. They are still there with no aim in life. They may not be seeing you because they are still busy laughing on others. But you can see them from the top because you know how to move forward in life.
Imagine if you would have considered them , you would too have been a part of that mob. Now feel proud on yourself as you took a right decision to ignore them….!!!
