Reading these lines inspired a thought inside me. I felt as if a current wave ran through my body. It made me wonder about life’s mysteriousness. With a little deeper look towards life, I realized that life is all what we make of it. It's our decisions and our choices that fashion our lives the way they are.
Sometimes we say, “Life is so hard”, but rarely do we realize the truth in these inspiring words said by a wise person “Life isn’t hard, you’re born, you live and then you die. Simple. It's what our choices makes life hard, but life itself is not hard at all”. Sometimes life hurts pretty bad, but that doesn't mean that life isn't worth living. It's our life, our choice, our pathways to take. No matter what, we will mess up our lives someday, but what’s important is that we are the ones to decide how to mess it up.
There are numerous instances of great persons who were once broke or failures but they didn’t accept the status quo and chose to rise from the ashes and created a life of their choice. Life can be so wondrous or it can be full of sadness. No matter how bad we may feel inside, we always have a choice to smile at our misfortune and change the course of events. In the previous article, there was an inspiring story of Arunima Sinha who despite having her leg amputated chose to scale Mt. Everest which is the hardest thing to do even for able-bodied persons.
From childhood to maturity our journey is about gaining power to act on our own choices. We have the choice to blame our present condition on our circumstances, personality, history, ancestry, luck, government or God. But at the same moment we also have the choice to be responsible and take control of our future. So now either you are still a child dependent on others or mature enough to take responsibility of your life by acting on your well thought out choices. You are now the architect of your life.
Remember, circumstances never remain the same, they change. And with the change comes opportunities which are grasped by those who do not take things lying down. They know that there is no guarantee of success and there will be troubles on the way but they choose to look these troubles in the eye and take a shot at the opportunity. Because they also know that fortune favors the bold.
Our life has blessed us with our family and friends. We must cherish that because it gives us this beautiful world to live in and thousands of other reasons to smile about. Be perfect in your imperfections. Be happy in your pain. Be strong in your weaknesses and be beautiful in your own way because you are yourself and no one else.
