    Life is a roller coaster ride with twists and turns

    I always compare life with a roller coaster ride. If we stare a roller coaster from outside, the ride will look scary but once we step into it, the ride will give an adrenal rush especially at the high and the low points. Along with the scary feeling, it also develops a vibrant pulse of excitement when the coaster rides on a flat rail. But at the end of the ride, we can step out with a bundle of happiness and beautiful memories. Roller coaster ride is truly a crazy, exciting, difficult, scary, and an amazing ride.

    Similar to the roller coaster ride, our life is also one crazy ride with many ups, downs, twists, and turns. If our life travels in a roadway without any bumps and humps, the ride will not be interesting and we will not get any chance to learn some important lessons for life. The twists and turns we face in our life always give us a lot of new memories and lessons and also helps us to mold our personality, develop our courage and confidence.

    If we look a problem from outside, it may appear big, serious and scary like looking a giant roller coaster from outside, but if we step forward confidently to solve it, it may appear light-weighted, small and easy. Also, if we get frustrated about out the problems in life and give up, the journey will not be interesting and it will appear hard. The good and bad things that happen in our life will not last forever because nothing is permanent in life. Once the ups and downs are crossed everything will become past and the ride will move forward towards the future where we can expect a different roadway. So, one must develop courage and confidence to have a happy, memorable and a beautiful ride. If we drive life in a positive way, the ride will look amazing.

    Let us enjoy the twists and turns in our life ride confidently and positively!

    Another thought provoking submission.

    As no one has a perfect life & this will remain the undeniable fact that in view of uncertainty, we all strive for more in order to make our life secured & so & in case if some problem arise then we don't want to be a beggar but instead want to face it boldly.

    But the problem is that we only can imagine the things & can't predict the future in actual. So more often the planning may not get a start up or the ending wouldn't be as expected. But it's the beauty of the human tendency that still on those circumstances we keep on trying for something good & effective with an aim of get the things accomplished.

    That's true, life is really like a roller coaster ride. So many twists and turns in the path of life. Some turns give us happy moments and some of them give sadness and experiences. Yet it is very important to travel through all these turns to taste every flavor of life.
    That path would never be straight because if it becomes straight and constant, life could be boring.
    So, we need such twists and turns to keep learning.

    Do what inspires you !!

    True. We can say life is a roller coaster. Many ups and downs. Twists and turns. Bumpy and humpy movements, exicitment and scary feeling. Life is mix of all these. That is what people always say. It is always on move and move also is not very smooth always. We have to face and take everything in the same way. Let us not overwhelm with happiness and not torn down completely with sorrows. Take everything as it comes in our way. Be positive and try to be as happy as possible. Once you are on the roller coaster the ride is not in your hands. It is in driver's hand. Let us have confidence in him and enjoy the ride.
    always confident

    A good narration by the author on the theme 'ride'. It is true that life is a journey full of challenges and obstacles and even hindrances but a person who takes them as a part of life and tries to mitigate them with courage and sustained efforts is successful in long run.

    The vicissitudes or ups and downs of life are inevitable. We have to manage them using our calibre and wisdom.

    Knowledge is power.

    Really nice thought from the author. Life is the roller coaster and we are bound to confront with negative and positive events during the course. While we enjoy the happy moments, we really get upset and uncomfortable with negative things happening . We should not run away from the negative happenings, as we are likely to learn by probing each of such set backs and where as in positive we only enjoy the moment , but never probe the happenings. And be sure that after every happy mood, sad moments would start to happen. So negative and positive are the sides of same coin.

    Though not a roller coaster ride always or to all, it is a ride with turns and twists for many.
    We all expect for a smooth ride.But due to our riding style or the road or the condition of the roads,it may not be always smooth.
