THE LIFE :-
Life is a beautiful gift or opportunity given by god to all of us and is full of surprises, expectations, joy and sorrow. We are gifted with different physical and mental traits; accordingly, we have different skills and thought process which we use in situations we come across in our day-to-day life.
Our life can be compared with a person sailing a boat in the sea in a particular direction which shows he has some purpose or goal to achieve. Without a goal to be achieved, life will be of no use and all of our skills and traits will go in vain. We also have to face difficulties or hurdles while progressing towards our goals just like as you see in the picture, the waves keep changing their intensity and the wind is also not favorable all the time which results in struggle and efforts which are a part of our life as well necessary to keep us moving.
We must have the balance in our mental, physical and spiritual aspects so that we can have a sense of stability and manage our emotions, thoughts to optimally utilize our knowledge, skills and available resources in achieving our true goals.
The base of moving forward in life is hope, to be optimistic and faith in the supreme power, the God. Only then you can realize your true potential and set new standards of achievements which will be a source of inspiration for others. We also learn to live in the present moment means to be completely aware what we are doing, forgetting about the unchangeable past and unpredictable future which are just illusions and we should not believe in them. It will create mindfulness and you will be more focused on whatever you are doing forgetting about the unnecessary thoughts which usually hamper our productivity. So living in the present moment, guiding our efforts towards right direction will lead to a meaningful life.
