Life Oh Life
If life is a game, we?re the players. If love is a novel, we are the writers. If life is a song, we are the lyricists. If life is a play production, we are the actors. But how are we going to play? How will we be able to produce a best-seller literary piece? How will we perform our masterpiece? And how will we be able to act out our so-called lives?
Being a human being is probably the toughest role we would ever have. As a composition, it has lots of tones void of harmony. As a story, it has lots of twists and denouments. So it all depends on how hard and how far we?re willing to play.
Like snow crystals, we are different from each other. Each of us, has our own identities. We have our own sets of strengths and weaknesses. We are unique, mere embodiments of God?s Masterpiece. Though we are IMPERFECt, these imperfections make us perfect human beings.
Blame Human Nature for our tendency to compare ourselves. There?s nothing wrong in comparing but if this comparison will lead to self-destruction then its probably the biggest mistake we could ever commit. Why? Simply because healthy comparison is for improvement not for mutation from a human being to a self-destruct monster.
Bill Cosby was quoted saying ?I don?t know the key to success, but the key to failure is to try to please everybody?. True enough, we can?t please everybody. After all we are not here to please our co-human beings, we?re sent here to please Him. We?re human beings, not doormats! Who wants to be merely passengers when we?re supposed to be drivers of our lives.
Every living thing is breathed the gift of life but what makes us human beings besides from our brain is our heart. A cliché goes, follow your heart all the way and if ever you get lost you always have your mind to lead you back. Though following your heart is a risk, its all worth it. I believe that the heart is never wrong, its our interpretation of what its telling us that falters.
?Carpe Diem?. You can never live your life if you can?t let go of the past. You can never have fun if you?re trapped by the sorrows of your yesterday. Treasure ?today?, after all there?s a reason why its called ?present?. The same goes with always fearing about the unknown future. Worry will do you no-good and what if tomorrow never comes?
Life is a journey. Along the way, you?ll encounter all kinds of hindrances towards your goals. But we don?t experience happiness just because everything is okay. We should be happy because though life sucks, we?re doing just fine. After all its not a matter of how many times we didn?t fall, but how many times we stood after every fall.
Life is synonymous to love. It is by loving that we live. Be it love for ourselves or for others. It is the main ingredient in our life that we could never live without. Don?t be hopeless in finding love for it is in the number of times that we?ve been wronged that we learn to value true love. After all, being successful in our discovery of true love is the sweetest achievement in this world.
Lastly, know where you?re going. Live your dreams. Have direction. After all its not a matter of how many years we live but how we lived a year.
I?m not a perfect person. There are lots of things I wish I didn?t do. My life isn?t perfect either and my principles do falter. But amidst these imperfections I?m doing my best to live my life. I don?t wish for a long life, rather a life worth living. So do what you think is right. Value your life. Cherish it. After all, we?re only going to travel this journey once and no one is rich enough to buy back his past.
