What is life?
“Life is Beautiful!!” momma said.
“Life is Beautiful!!” friends said.
But is life really beautiful?
“I am suffering every now and then, and you call life beautiful?” This is what you must be thinking.
But have you ever thought what is life? Everyone does and is left with an ambiguous thought disturbing the mind. It disturbed me too, then I concluded, “life to be a beautiful journey between our first and last breath.”
I agree it has a cut-throat competition from the moment sperm traveled to fertilize the egg, to the moment our soul leaves the body.We were competing that day with all other sperms to be first in the race of life and our last day we are competing in the crematorium again to get our bodies cremated.
You might be thinking, “life is full of competition for survival of the fittest then how can it be beautiful? , it is rather chaotic.”
Now the question arises, “So is life struggle?”
To answer this, I can say yes it has some struggle, but it doesn’t only, have struggle.It has every beauty we can feel, hear,touch, perceive, taste.So many, things together. Yes, you got it right! this is life.
It never goes as planned.“To some, it can be misery and to others, it can be a mystery”. It actually depends on how you perceive it.
How to be happy
Think about it, You don’t know what is your birthday present, it is admission to a well-reputed boarding school making you leave your home, at the same time giving you the best education, or is it going for a vacation with family.
Both are good, both have different feelings attached to them.One gives educational satisfaction while the other gives the satisfaction of being with your family. But you see, both give happiness with different types of satisfaction attached to them.So, the answer to “how to be happy in life is satisfaction.”
“Life is just like a rose, so beautiful, available in different colors, each has thorns but all have the same fragrance.”
People often get sad and depressed with mere thinking of hardships or by facing it.But is hardship really a reason for sadness.“Is that the way of life?”, Are we not depriving us of happiness by thinking of hardships, problems, troubles, and compromises.
Let’s face it and let it get unfolded with each step we take. Let’s live it enjoying the surprises it gives. But what if surprises are bad?
See, all surprises might not be good just like your birthday gifts, some gifts may not be up to your taste, but then “okay!” A gift is a gift, you can’t deny it.
Same goes for life, it is a beautiful gift of God.I know it gives setbacks but okay, let’s face it. Let us respect nature, let us respect the balance it maintains.
Leaves are shed off the tree but soon it gets a new one. Again, making the tree as vibrant and cheerful it was. So just have faith in almighty, and live a purpose driven life.
“Every song is beautiful, but when you are sad, why do you hear a sad song?”. Just because at that time the lyrics resonate with your situation and gives you peace of mind, which eventually leads to happiness.
“So,what we can deduce here is, we actually derive happiness out of the sadness too. Isn’t it?” So why can’t we believe life is beautiful, just like contrasting dress looks beautiful, think contrasted life looks beautiful.
Life has beauty in every moment, in every path, in every twist. Find the purpose of life and you will soon start enjoying it.From now onwards, promise yourself, “I will take time but I will surely be back in my form as I know Life is beautiful.”
