The Changing Lenses in our life !!by Manoj

Lenses are those bits of our lives which define our values. If anyone’s aim is to be an politician his lens will be to be socially compliant but if someone believes in business then s/he would have an economically enriching mind set. For me, my lenses or values of life constantly changed and that happened when it was until 14 or so.
It was until when I was 14 or so, I used to believe “sports” had been “the” clear lens of my life. I had an accident, where I got hurt on my right thigh which came along with six stitches. Then, my family didn’t allow me to take part in any sport.
Now, I believe that the one particular thing what had changed my perspective of looking at the lens of life, was that incident. I then started believing, a person can have more than one lenses in life if s/he chooses to have them. At the meantime, I had a friend who was also my classmate, he was good at sports, art, poetry, music, study and everything. It was another part of me which helped realize the importance of having different lenses in life.
After joining high school, I started going to an amazing platform called “Smart Club” which now has completely changed me as a person. There, I got an opportunity to meet many common minded-people who were striving forward to find out “their” lenses like me. Soon, I felt public speaking might be a lens after participating in Public Speaking Competition: SMART SUPERLATIVE HUNT-2012.
Also, I had a wonderful chance of knowing a place called “We Inspire Nepal(WIN)”. WIN helped me learn a lot and experience leadership, motivation, etc , thereafter contributing in adding some more lenses in my life.
At the same time, I have deep interest in learning photography. Travelling has been one of the inseparable parts of my life. These are the some of the lenses which I’d love to have. Furthermore, life has been all about experimenting the different lenses so far in my case. Many lenses have just been momentary and faded away. I’m not sure about those above lenses too. I don’t know when my passion is going to end towards them and new ones are going to be added up. After all, its all about keeping our spirit and hopes alive to explore our true potential in order to follow our lenses and pursue them.
And finally the question remains “Are we ready to work upon achieving our lenses? “
