We always wish for a six when we have the die in our hands...For generations we have been taught to wish for more. Sadly we were not taught when to stop. This resulted in a society where greed has become a prestige.Results of hardwork were increased possessions.The words passion and interest meant nothing to the so called modern society.We concentrate so much on the problems that we face, which draws down the curtains over the good things that constitute our lives.Having endured 18 years of a crappy life, there are a few lessons I learnt which made changes, good and bad to my life.I used to curse people who asked me look upon the brighter side.It is possible but not for every single thing. There are certain things that cannot be compromised or given up for anything in return.But we have to learn to compromise for things that fall out of this category.This was hard in the beginning,but gradually things started to make sense.Giving up certain things were hard.The attitude mattered.Inspirations mattered.People who inspired me and keep inspiring form a part of my life.That makes the inspirations stronger.Like I said we always expect the highest returns in whatever we do.Sai made me come out of it.I'm happy and proud that he continues to inspire me. The four of us share a bond beyond repair.We inspire each other,the three of them inspire me heavily.There are so many people who have made me look at my life differently. Mathi says " today's the beginning of the rest of your life" How true? This reminds me of the title of Kumar's speech in class 12 "Its your attitude and not your aptitude that determines your altitude". There is no better fodder to the mind than hope and faith.Hope and faith need hope and faith on themselves. Believe in ourselves,as simple as that.Optimism is one character everyone must possess.After all life became better when i realized that the GLASS IS HALF FULL..
PS: If you're reading this on facebook, you can see that I have tagged people who inspire me heavily.. there are people who I barely communicate with.. but there's this inexplainable aura that makes me be inspired..
PPS: There's something about the title I love so much.If you happen to comment,comment on the title too :D

Dear Vignesh,ur words remind me of our astronomy class -IT IS YOUR OUTLOOK THAT MAKES A HELL OUT OF HEAVEN OR A HEAVEN OUT OF HELL - IT IS YOUR ATTITUDE THAT CAN TAKE YOU TO HIGH ALTITUDE AND WE WISH U THE BEST IN ALL UR ENDEAVOURS - srinivasanReplyDelete
I have never been naturally optimistic. But as I have gotten older, I have realized that excessive pessimism is pointless. If you give up due to hopelessness, you are guaranteed to fail. If you are hopeful and approach life more optimistically, at least you have a chance at success.ReplyDelete
You one thing it is sometimes better to be a pessimist because you are either proved right and or you are surprised for the good. Now thats an optimistic view of pessimism!ReplyDelete
