There is a host of people that would say that life has not turned out to be the way they had planned it to be. They had never imagined it to be much more closer to hell than it is to heaven. Approximately 7 out of every 10 thinks this way, unfortunately i am one of them. There were dreams that never got fulfilled, happinesses that never came to us when we expected them the most, unpredictable failures, destiny's tricks when you at times have crossed all counts of your hardworking nights yet you haven't got success which you always striven for. Are you the most unhappy soul on the planet? Are things actually that worst? Will you never ever get the same happinesses again that perhaps you have lost somewhere down the line?
Sitting back and analyzing the times gone by can make you feel that it will never be the same, life was perhaps been better in the past and its more than worst in the time passing by. But wait a minute, have you ever been to a hospital lately? No! Then perhaps its time for you to plan a visit there and see the people crying in grief cos of the departure of a loved one, its perhaps time for you to visit an old age home where 60-70's old age people are starving for a drop of love, perhaps its time for you to visit an orphanage center where you would see tender innocence growing too quickly into bitter realities of life, perhaps its time for you to visit the home of someone who has just lost its only child in a bomb blast when he had no political agendas attached to his daily working life but got thrashed into 100 pieces by a bomb planted nearby, visit the home of someone who has just gone through greatest shocks of life, perhaps a sports person who has just become handicapped in an accident where he suffered due to carelessness of the approaching vehicle. By doing so you would feel how much selfish you had been in asking from almighty a better life, how much stupid you had been in ex aggregating your minor problems at times of a failure in an exam or a broken relationship, wasting your precious tears and foolishly not taking lessons from the mistakes committed by you and only you.
Nobody ever said that life will be easy, nobody ever said that its a piece of cake to achieve what you want from life, all that was known was that it will have a great deal of emotions and feelings and places and problems and cherishing moments and tears and everything else to offer, and it certainly have done that. Winning every battle is not a necessity to win a war, analyze life in all its bitter moments and you would realize that it haven't been that bad lately and you had not been the poorest soul on earth!
Its been a while and i still remember that the basic rule of life had been “winners never quit and quitters never win”, enjoyment of a challenging life is the best way to live it!
So the very next time when you curse life for losing your girlfriend or boyfriend or for not getting selected in a reality show audition or for not getting the highest marks in the test then please check yourself cos you have totally misjudged the extent of its adversities and had been a fool in your approach towards it! Yes, harsh but true if someone would ever ask me to narrate the meaning of life then i would say “Life is to Move on, Life is to expect less and give more, Life is to smile when every other individual around you would have shed tears in the same place, Life is to love and to love yourself, Life is to be patient towards yourself, Life is to accept defeat but not accept oneself as a loser, Life is to understand all these things and ultimately Life is to see the perfections in imperfections”
