Life's Sequel

Life's 1st Part is here

When life gives you lemon you have got two choices either cry over it or make lemonade…choice is yours…often you would come across situations when you find all doors closed…but all doors closed doesn’t mean they are all locked…there are two ways of looking a glass half filled…some say it’s half empty while the others call it half full… a simple occurrence can be viewed in two entirely different prospective …it’s upon you which prospective you choose to see…and more often than not your life depends on these choices…in one of my blogs I have given emphasis on the term happiness, it’s all in the state of mind…similar to happiness fear is also a state of mind…we often tend to keep ourselves occupied with views of failing in our attempt…as long as fear occupies your mind you can never succeed in anything you do…
You often hear monks are beyond emotions, desires and all earthly pleasures…have you ever thought how are they different from us? They live among us but still are so different…the reason is they have a different views of looking things…they are not super humans they are amongst us and every person has the capability to be like them…I am not asking you all to become saints or leave all the earthly desires...I am just asking you to broaden your views…try to look things in different prospective…a frog which resides in the well…do you know what does world mean to him, The entire curvature of the well through which it sees the outside world…but world is certainly not what it sees…to know the world the frog has to come out of the well…then it will know how vast the world is…
Always keep one thing in mind when one thing ends…something else begins. People may lose hope and stop moving on with life but similar to time…life never stops, it doesn’t care about you being lost in deep crutches it goes on with its own pace. Sometimes you feel as if you have screwed up with your life nothing seems correct but friends always remember life never screws you, it’s you and your decisions that screws up everything…when you are in middle of a jammed road…you could only see honking all around…everything cluttered up, the same is the case with your life when you are in middle of disarray everything is messed up…you just have to look and focus beyond your troubles, beyond the discomfort that’s hurting you. Don’t waste your time in thinking what you could have done…but instead think what you can do…you can lose hope and give up but at the same time you could gain courage of fighting against your troubles by simply looking at the troubles what others are facing and how they are coping up with it.
Once I went to a house saw a young boy of 8 months trying to go up the staircase…after many attempts he couldn’t climb up…his parents were worried and were about to help him…but the boy insisted to climb by himself and finally he could climb…this is life hope were others give up…try when others fail and succeed when others stop.
Recently I gave a picture perception interview…the picture was blurred and it was taken from the top view…the image was shown for merely a minute after which we had to script a story on it…including the main characters of that image, their age, sex and their mood(positive, negative or neutral). We also had to describe the past that led to that incidence and the probable future outcome…you would be amazed to know the result of that test. Nearly 100 people gave that test and almost everybody had a different story to tell…just like the test, in real life also you would often see people behaving and reacting differently in similar circumstances or situations…similar to the image the future awaiting us is blurred, you don’t know what actually is going to happen but the clues that you get in life (many times you don’t realize the clues) and depending on your reactions success and failures come and go. Many times the effort that you made is comparable to the person who succeeded in life but you went on a losing side the reason being you never had the right prospective of the situation that surrounded you.
I have already written an article on the title ‘LIFE’…it’s the sequel of that blog. You can also call it ‘LIFE part2’. Just like my previous blog on ‘LIFE’, I have focused on life as my main theme. You know the more you explore life, the more you would know about life and it’s often a case when you tend to see life from entirely different prospective. I would like to give a simple example when you are climbing the stairs of a 50 storey building you could easily give up looking upwards after climbing the 25th stair thinking you still have so many stairs to cover. In the same way you could gain courage by looking downwards that you have covered half the stairs and only half remains. As I have been conversing throughout my blog life’s success depends the way you see and react to the circumstances you face in life. As you know success is for those who thinks ‘he can’ similarly achieving success is possible only if you have the sense of viewing the right prospective in your life.
Have a look at the Lines of one of my prose…

You never know when you have to go
Just do it when have to show

No failures could make you bow
Be inclined to accept your faults on your toe

Life’s seed often comes the way you sow
It’s always the way you reap and go

Success doesn’t count on your foes
It’s the way you shape up your willows

Focus to your work just as the arrow
You would always find yourself flying like the sparrow

It hardly matter even if you are a minnow
Rest assured if hard work and desire are your pillows

You never know when you have to go
Just do it when you have to show…

And there goes my final quotation of this blog
“Life’s not lived the way you want to see, it's lived the way you react to your vision...!!!”

    1. Yes...i agree with you cent percent...perception matters a lot...even if a person is on a death bed and believes he/she will recover and will get well soon...there are instances when people have recovered showing their willpower and motivation.
