SIGN OF THE TIME
A year has gone and another year is coming. Each one of us would add year to his/her age, and reduce one year from his or her life span (expectancy) !.
Can we stop the life train, or can we reverse its course?. The wise answer which is the true answer is “no”. We are unable to stop the life train nor we are able to reverse its course, but any one of us may be able to chose the destination of his/her life train.
Let us look forward, and try to see what is hiding behind the horizon. Let us imagine that only happy surprises are over there waiting for us to collect. Let us be optimistic, and let us see tomorrow as much better than today. Let us dream of a bright future for us as individuals and for us as humanity.
Life without hope is a farm without water. You can plant what you want, but it’ll never grow, and it’ll never bear fruits.
Birds’ lives are unpredictable and unprotected, but birds tweet and play and live happily until the last day of their lives. We – humans – enjoy much more predictable lives and our lives in comparison are safer and more secure. We do worry, mourn, nag, complain, and rarely appreciate what we have got. We do create a lot of stresses on ourselves, because we live in worry and fear. We do create that worry and fear for no reason in most of the time. It is I think much easier for anyone of us to worry than to relax. It is easier – may be more enjoyable – to become anxious and get edgy than to chill and relax. We are humans, and I think we were created to be anxious and live in fear.
It is a new year, and it is going to be different from the last year…. let us be optimistic.
