What is life? A set of circumstances and situations occurring in a sequence without a particular fixed pattern could be life. Life I would say is a cluster of memories, wishes, hopes, disappointments and happenings all put together.
A well wisher has appreciated my blog but thinks that I have shown only the brighter side of everything in life and wants me to show the reader ‘what real life is’.
Now what is ‘real life’? Everything in life is real. The ups and downs, the good and the bad, happiness and sorrow all combined together are what I would say ‘real life’ is all about. Is ‘real life’ too cruel and full of sorrow and harsh realities? I don’t think so.
Life is meant for living and how we live our life depends entirely on us. Almost every person in his life faces either death, sorrow, tragedy, poverty or some other dreadful situation once or several times in a lifetime. If we are lucky we will see only a couple of the above and if not we might see all of it and more….
After every dark night don’t we wait for the dawn so that the sun can rise and we could see things in brighter light? It is this positive expectation from nature and the happiness of the bright light that gives us the energy to move on ahead in life. People feel ‘real life’ means tragedies and sorrows all combined. So are happiness and good times not ‘real life’??
During the bright daylight at times we see dark shadows cast by gloomy large clouds. We look desperately at the clouds wishing they would move and make way for the bright sun to shine…..These are incidents where when the going is good and suddenly we face a big loss. But if you wait for a while, you will see the sun pushing through the dark clouds…….
Reality at times could be so callous it could finish your very existence. Still, we have to face it and defeat the situation or bear with it depending on the circumstance and our capacity to handle it or change it. Eventually we move on to see what else life has in store for us. We understand that we have to live our life and tackle each situation as it comes….I feel we humans are very positive and the will to live and survive is what makes us move on in life……
It is not that I have not seen sorrows or harsh realities. I am sure each person reading this blog would have at least one time in their life faced some tragic situation, grief or loss. But didn’t we live on in the hope that situations will change and that a beautiful tomorrow awaits us………..
Reality, my friends is about accepting the situations in life and looking towards the sun waiting for daylight to banish the darkness from our life……………..
