Let’s learn to Love Life

“I cried since I had no shoes, until I met a man who had no feet”

This line sends shivers down my spine. Whosoever wrote this statement made the most valuable point in the Philosophy of Life. It’s a natural trap for every human being to look at the things they don’t have and feel sad about it rather than being grateful for what they have. I meet many people who say that they are thankful to God for giving them what they have, but do they really realise it from inside?


The moment a person become conscious of good things around, complaints of life vanish immediately. The fear of ‘what’, ‘if’, ‘why’, ‘when’ and ‘who’ immediately fades away.


More than billion of people go to bed hungry and we feel gloomy if we don’t have money right now to buy some branded clothes......Children, with no fault of theirs, are born with AIDS every day and we get irritated if we have to spend some time in a traffic jam? Many died last week war due to tensions between Israel & Hamas, and we worry about losing extra pounds?


The only word to think about here is ‘Perspective'. See world through the eyes of traveller and you will have a Perspective, speak to people and you will know their Perspective, respect others and you will have a Perspective and listen to your parents and your life will have a Perspective.

I think this is a beautifully written article and one that people should be greatly affected by. We take so many things for granted in our lives and constantly get upset over minor problems, which hardly compare to other problems around the world. We sometimes need to take a step back and take a look at the whole picture here, in order to break the surface on true meaning.

I want to take this post and let everyone know about my new blog that I am trying to start up, http://jem-thoughts.blogspot.com. Come and check it out. It is a place where insightful writings can be written and reacted upon.
