Question: Define Life
Answer: Life is blah blah blah.
If someone asks you to define ‘life’, ‘love’ or something like that which do not have an easy spill-out-of-the-mouth definition, then start your answer as, “Today, for me life is [whatever fits in there]”. Like for example: “Today, for me, love is my fabulous endure of hating my manager.” You see that right? My love today could be hate for some one. Life is not driven by constant principles. There is life ridden by changing dynamic principles.
Life isn’t certain. We will never know when our colleague or a friend will turn into an insurance agent and all of a sudden becomes a nuisance (positively not talking about people who don’t force to take one). Sometimes too much of association increases the expectations and life just gets weird! Like for say, you don’t like the sunrise anymore!
We can’t stick to a protocol that we will always wake up every single day at 5.00am. We can’t conclude a person has a good character if they regularly wake up at 5.00am. We can’t predict that a student is going to perform well in exams just because they studied till 5.00am. You see, there are no governing success rules! There is some guidance which comes from experience but they are no sticky principles! Just because a principle was successful to one, it does not mean everyone has to carry a paper clip in the pocket.
Reading a good book does not make one good and we don’t stop reading knowing that. No one is good or bad throughout their life. The pages of the book turn leading to new sentences and chapter. No story stays in a loop. Is it not surprising that even this whole huge earth rotates around its own axis without staying put?
It’s December and one thing that December brings to mind is the resolutions that are made for the better good changes. I really don’t have any known stories who have actually worked on those resolutions without relaxation or mostly they tend to be long lost memories. And all I want to say here is, let every month be like the December. It is really okay to protest over “I don’t know who” made life principles. I guess by now the title of the post makes some sense. If not yet, ‘happiness is the goal ultimatum’.
P.S. I just saw a friend posting a new purchase on Facebook with a tagline, “Finally my dream cums true” and I am just going “o” and “e” over it!
