Rain Or Sunshine, Life Goes On…….

OH LIFEEEEEE !! WHAT A LIFE !!
Just as a coin has two sides, life has two sides too, pleasure and pain , but unlike the coin it never has one side apparent all the time it’s always a mixture of both. Sometimes one side becomes strong and dominant hiding or suppressing the other but still the other side is always there.
Why me?? What have I done? Life is so unfair!! Why am I always the target ? These are the situations one might find oneself in…. some times or a lot of time. Life is not a piece of cake ,sunshine or flowers and dealing with the hardships of life is quiet difficult. But one thing about life is

“IT GOES ON”

People will try to break you, rate you hurt you and shake you, but how you stay strong is what makes you “YOU” . Life is full of ups and down, that’s the indication of ones being alive just like an ECG ups and down indicate life, but when it goes flat everything ends.
Life can be as bitter as alum or bitter gourd but never allow the bitter times make you a bitter person. Just like seasons come and go, difficult time will pass too. Yes, the memories remain, but with passage of time they fade away and one can always make new one and replace the old ones with them.
Life will give you many reasons to cry and even if you have one reason to smile no matter how small the reason is just hold on to that reason, let it give you strength, courage and heal you. Always keep it in mind no one can really hurt you or degrade you, but only if you allow them too.
In Japan, there was a village near the capital, where a wise old samurai lived.Once, when he was training with his students, he was approached by a young soldier, known for his brutality and cruelty.
His favorite technique was provocation: he used to provoke the enemy, blind the enemy with rage, hence make the enemy accept the challenge. Once this happened the enemy usually made mistakes after mistakes, and as a result always lost the battle.

The Young soldier began to insult the old man, he threw stones at him, spitting and swearing bad names . But the old man remained calm and continued training. At the end of the day irritated and tired the young soldier went away.The students were surprised by the fact that their master did not even fight back or say anything on being insulted, they approached the wise old man and asked.

– Master why did you not fight the young soldier? Were you scared that he would defeat you?

The Wise Old Samurai said:

– If someone approaches you with a gift and you do not accept it, who then owns gift?- The one who was gifting it – said one of his disciples.- The same goes for envy, hatred and profanity. As long as you do not accept them, they belong to the person who brought them.

Hardships and difficulties are a part of life, they are there to make you strong.Diamonds are always made under pressure and oaks grow strong in contrary wind. One should never lose hope and always keep faith.
“There were times of hardship when people forget the courage they need to keep fighting; and survive. But I think as long as we have something to believe in; to keep close in our hearts, courage will never truly leave us. We only have to reach deep in our heart to find it.” Sakura

We all have read the story in our childhood “DO GOOD HAVE GOOD, DO BAD HAVE BAD” if you are right and doing good and people are pulling you down, making every breath of your life a hell , LET THEM!! Because they are the one whose conscious will never let them have peace, while you might cry yourself to sleep but you will have an inner peace.
Life is an echo, everything come back to its original place. So make sure no matter what kind of situation you are in, you keep loving, caring and helping so that one day its echo come back finding you!!
Life is a choice of being happy or sad and depressed . One after the other many time difficult time comes. Sometimes one problem doesn’t end when other starts, but its up to you what you choose to be, either let yourself become a victim or a survivor the choice is yours.
You cant change anything but you can change your self!! Have you ever seen an eagle in rain?? All the birds go for shelter when it rains except eagle, in order to avoid rain it starts flying above the cloud.
When you start keeping distance from all the negative things, beautiful things will start happening. Life is a rocky road but it can become a sweet chochalaty rocky road only if you keep believing. There is no need to cry for those who don’t know the value of your tears and emotions because people will target you, use you, manipulate you and some time you will be a door mat, but that doesn’t mean that you should give up of your sweet and caring nature. Let them judge you, because in reality they are not judging you but themselves. They are only there to polish you and make you shine.
Life is too short to waste time and energy on being depressed and always trying to make others happy. Take chances, meet new people, make new friends, make new dreams, have patience and faith and most importantly

  “BE YOURSELF BECAUSE THE REST ARE ALREADY TAKEN ;)”

“To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children; to earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give of one’s self; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived—this is to have succeeded.” Besie Anderson
