Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass ...
Its about learning to dance in the rain!!!
There are many things in life that will catch your eye
but only a few will catch your heart... Pursue those

This is my small effort to make you smile for a while...

How would you like to spend it?

Live life to the fullest because it happens only once, but for few it happens more than once. And I am one of those very few who has been given a golden second chance to live again. In a very unfortunate incident which happened 11years ago, I had almost breathed my last but then I fought back to live because I was not ready.

Yes, I was not really ready, I was in my final year of graduation when that incident had happened and at that point in my life, all I was a darling daughter to my parents and a fun loving being with my friends. Life was just happening without me putting much effort into it. Not that something great happened post this incident its just that something very essential happened, LIFE happened.

The Life that happened in these 11 years has been magical and it carved the real me! Post that incident, I fell in love and I fell out of it many times, but I learnt to value the love I got. I am termed ugly by few and beautiful by few, well it taught me how deceptive looks could be and makes me appreciate the beauty in everything and everyone around me. I realized that happiness is not same for everyone, someone else is happy with less than what I have, an ingredient of compassion was added then. I am most certain now there are few sets of people, who always see my nicer side no matter the emotional turmoil that I put them through, this taught me to appreciate the emotional struggle people go through and respect that. I have failed and won, but I learnt how to cope with how the world treats in both the situation.

Most importantly, I saw a Life go away amidst all of us and I saw a life come into our life, the conflict that my mind went through in these two extremities of nature makes me appreciate, live and love every single moment of this beautiful life. I would have gone just as a darling person to my family, but today that unfortunate incident few years back on which I rebuilt my life has added a lot of gems in my treasury. And yes, just like everyone else my life has also failed to be perfect, but it never has failed to be beautiful. So pause a moment appreciate it, fall in love with yourself and all the abnormalities of your life, trust me you will fondly treasure it someday.

Life is like a coin, so its up to you to decide how you would like to spend it.

Ramya, So true & very well articulated. No matter who tries to teach you lessons about life, you wont understand it until you go through it on your own. "It’s not how far you fall, but how high you bounce that counts". Everyone will have failures & success in their lives,I am glad that you are thinking positive & enjoying the life.

Success always hugs you in private..!But Failure always slaps you in public! That's life!

A very practical and wise take on life
If one is aware of the uncertainty in life,that success and failure come frequently and unexpectedly,that miracles do happen and comparisons only bring misery,then life can become one of joy at even the smallest blessings that surround us all the time.
A very good post.

This I like ----- "just like everyone else my life has also failed to be perfect, but it never has failed to be beautiful." -- In essence that's what life is all about. And life never stops teaching us, it is all up to us to learn from it.

Beautiful insights from your post. Thank you for sharing your wisdom with us.

Ramya said...
