“Life is tough.”
This one isn’t funny and a long one.
I read above quote some where in some book. It says Life is tough and if you accept this fact you will never have a tough day in your life; And I loved it. Its so true and we all know it but its so difficult to realize the fact. I wont say it changed my life upside down but it does had its effect on what I think today about life. Achieving everything is not the only thing in life. The success , the money, the appreciation will make your life more comfortable but happier?? I wonder!!.
Its your perception which makes the world what it is. If you think world is BAD its BAD if you think its GOOD place to be in then its. Its not easy to enjoy your life even if your ambani’s son. Life teaches all of us in one form or other. You will have those tough times, those joyful moments, the loss which will be with your till you last breath; You cant skip the trap. All you can do is enjoy the journey. Enjoy the little happy moment which you normally ignore.
If I look back I never had real tough time which I would recollect today. Life is been happy-go-lucky for me. I dont think I got All I wanted but I never asked too much from life in anycase. I do regret somethings I did in the past;At the same time cherish some decision which I can say were mine. But I dont have any baggage, I dont carry any bag full of guilts.
My father had a humble beginning; we started from not-so-great situation to some-what-comfortable life. The journey tought me so much abt surviving the not-so-great situations. I wont say I don’t fear loosing the comforts of life but if I have to let go all this things someday I wont be down n out because I Know I can survive!!!
It all comes from my father He has been true icon for me. I wonder how he gets all the energy at this age after tiring day of work. I respect him for what he is. I never seen him cursing the situation he takes the initiative. Whether its some family problem or taking panga with the system. He is always up for the challenge and with solutions. He is the kind of person who is always on the move even on off days. He doesn’t like lazying around. I wish someday I will be able to match his foot-prints.
FAITH. For me is believing in something which give you strength. It doesn’t matter if you follow a particular religion or have faith in some idols as long as it takes you UP when your down. Its facinating to see ppl climb up those mountains for amarnath yatra or when ppl walk miles from virar to sidhivinayak. I myself have done that from kandivali to dadar atleast for 4-5 times. But its not out of faith Its just the 4-5 hrs long conversation with friends which lure me to do that, Showing trust in god is just one part of it. But I think for many ppl its all about there blind faith in the idol they worship, I think they think that pain will make them closer to GOD and may be rightly so. Pain does make you closer to GOD. People have different up-bringing different background and so different worship methods. But as long as it takes you closer to being a good human Its all good. Humanity is above all.
And I don’t know why I have written something so basic and obvious things which we all know but some times all we need is to look WITH-IN. And find the way ahead. The more you look behind more you will move forward because we learn from our success , our failures.
If your kind of reader who just skimmed through above written things and wondering how I wrote a post without muttering a word about rakhi sawant, shakti kapoor and anu malik even once; then dont worry guys I am in good health and next post will be for you. And if your a kind of reader who took the pain to read all that and thought I eventually had something to say then I am glad you thought so.
Heya till the next time… :)
