Today was one of those days where I was disturbed for no apparent reason. I was weak and tired and I knew that it was not physical energy but mental and emotional drain that brings us to that state. The answers as in most cases are not found outside but inside ourselves. I had written in my diary yesterday night that “Life is incredibly simple. Keep moving.” Today returning back to office after lunch, I knew that I was at an emotional low. And that any I had to figure out a way. I came up and was browsing through LinkedIn. This page SMEKlib Released. It’s an article about Finite Element Analysis. It wasn’t the article that did it. It was the picture. The image of Flux density. Finite Element Analysis. I was asking myself too many questions and the answer to all that was in the moment I saw this pic.

Like the dialog from Sherlock where he tells Irene that he took her pulse; the pulse is all that is needed. That did it. I kept asking myself a question over and over again. Going through the rationality of my decisions and seeking answers to what I would be doing. We all have to face uncertainty. We live with it each and every moment of our life. But the major decisions in life are guided by that which sets your heart racing. What is life if we cannot have them. The next time you feel your heart racing, know that the decision is right. Know that it is passion. Maybe sometime later I’ll write about the question on my mind as well. 😉
