At my Place
Life is a succession of moments; to live each one is to succeed…
Tuesday, April 17, 2007
Life is all about waking up each day to discover something new, about meeting wahi puraane log but making new conversations, walking through puraane galiyan but still feeling kuch accha about it, realising that you have grown a day older but still feeling young at your heart, meeting busy schedules, but still finding time for old friends, being nostalgic about beethe huve kal but still looking forward for aanewaala kal…

We go through life trying to make sure everything is perfect. Through the most important moments of our life, we check all the details, brush the little speck of dust on the new coffee table, and make sure all the people who matter are present.
All this, while life happens, takes it's own course, leaving you wondering. It's humbling to learn and accept that we cannot control it all. Life battles don’t always go to the stronger or faster, but sooner or later the one who wins is the one who thinks he/she can.

Here is a paragraph that explains Life!
Arthur Ashe, the legendary Wimbledon player was dying of AIDS, which he got due to, infected blood he received during a heart surgery in 1983. From world over, he received letters from his fans, one of which conveyed: “Why does God have to pick you for such a bad disease?”

To this, Ashe replied: “The world over 5 crore children start playing tennis; 50 lakh learn to play tennis; 5 lakh learn professional tennis; 50,000 come to the circuit; 5000 reach the grand slam; 50 reach Wimbledon; 4 to semi-final; 2 to the finals, When I was holding a Cup
I never asked God “Why me?” And today in pain I should not be asking God, “Why me?”

Happiness keeps you Sweet, Trials keep you Strong,
Sorrow keeps you Human, Failure Keeps you Humble,
Success keeps you Glowing, But only God Keeps you going..

Life consists not in holding good cards, but in playing those you hold well. We can choose our attitude even though we cannot always choose our circumstances. We cannot control all the events that happen in our lives but we can control how we deal with them. The choice is always ours.

This life is worth living, and we can say, since it is what we make it. We owe it to almighty to give it our best shot, and even if it falls short, we know one more way of how not going about it..… Live life to the fullest…. Always look behind with forgiveness, ahead with hope, above with gratitude…

aur ab suno what the crabby lady, Maxine has got to say about Life..

    am touched with what you said re... I can only do my best and thats what I am trying to convince right now... it is so depressing sometimes inspite of all the effort...

    true, look behind with forgiveness, I have learnt it well and follow a simple rule to put a hold on my anger for a day or two and more often than not it disappears

    have fun, always :)

    'life is not just peaches and cream,
    but happiness and sorrow,
    a tear today is always followed,
    by a smile tomorrow'.

    but sometimes life juss takes twists and turns and leaves you hanging in between.

    nice post though:)

    i am not serious about life, i don't know why i am here, i came only to go and i don't understand it. people say they try to give some meaning but still no use. i never asked why me. i am just here, though i have no reasons to be unhappy. life has treated me well. i can make my life a living hell or i can make it a paradise, its all here, its just a question of attitude. i laugh it off.

    beautiful post SMILES !
    thanks for Ashe quote, never heard before.

    Seeing we're in that kind of mood -remember you're a long time dead.

    That's it, no more unhappy stuff. As per the film - Life of Brian - Always look on the bright side of life.

    life is simple but not easy...

    n the best way to live it is to cherish it against the exhaustion of guilt or sorrow or failure..to hold on until the light come on again...

    my fav line from the movie forrest gump
    "Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get."...

    btw nice post
    njoy the adventure called life...!!
