To put it shortly-

It takes so much time to discover. Discover your identity, what you want to be, and your ambition.

After discovering, it takes so much time to accept it all. Sometimes, there is a part of you that doesn't want to be what you are.

Your eyes fall on the person next to you, and you want what they have- their beauty, their popularity, their wit, charm- just about anything.
Something about their personality - that you suddenly want to infuse into your own.
Say, there's nothing wrong with wanting to do that. That is an absolutely normal feeling but it's normalcy has got conditions. Namely- you don't lose your individuality while conducting the transition and secondly, subtlety is a good choice in this case.

Once you're done with the acceptance, transitions and finally you start enjoying life, you realize that you're going to die tomorrow.

Life is too short.

@Charu: To put it quite bluntly, I think every thought in the world has been approached before by people who had witnessed much more and experienced much more..
In today's world, the thing that matters more is the approach that you undertake towards the idea as the idea will never be new- but the approach just may have chances..

@Thousif: You're awesome :)
