    Be positive and the world is all yours

    It is a depressing experience when there is a death of any dear person, but we do not stop to live. Life continues with some hitches and extreme sadness for a certain period of time, thereafter we learn to adjust with the vacuum created in our lives, and after a span of time, it becomes the way of living. Isn't it a great example to establish the authenticity of the phrase, 'It's not the end of the world'?

    Let's consider the Para-athletes who do not lose heart due to their physical disability, but compete in the sports arena to prove their worth. It's not always about a podium finish result rather it's about the intention to compete gives out the message loud and clear that it's not the end of the world.

    Any kind of loss either of life, an organ, number of valuable years, of education or something else does not signify the end of everything rather it signifies an end of a phase. There is always a scope for a new beginning. The migratory birds teach a great lesson to the human beings, the supreme creation of God, never to give up. In search of a proper habitat, the migratory birds fly from one end to another end of the globe which shows the bird's attitude of not giving up till their last breath, then how the world would crumble down for the human beings due to any kind of failure or distress in life.

    Life of every human being is like a hurdle race. One has to take a chance and cross the hurdle, but suppose one fails to cross the barrier and gives up completely, then it's not a dead end of life rather a mental block. If a person learns to remove the mental block, shows determination and have control over emotion then one or the other opportunity will definitely open up. It only needs a positive outlook and some motivation to attain a green pasture because there is always a light at the end of a tunnel.

    Richard Bach, an American writer, has rightly said: "The mark of your ignorance is the depth of your belief in injustice and tragedy. What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the Master calls the butterfly."

    A good narration by the author. It is true that we have many bad events and set backs in our life but it does not mean that everything has finished and there is nothing for which we should continue in this world.

    Every end has a beginning and every failure has a message to work hard and try again.

    Good narration by the author. A positive outlook always helps. It is true. But when life is very troublesome getting positive attitude is very difficult. For that one requires a lot of focus and a strong mind. Some people who are very emotional will think a small set back also as a major problem. But a person with a strong mind may be able to take the difficulties positively and may come out successfully. But the question here is how to get that strong mind.
    One should never think that they have lost everything in the world under any circumstances. They should always try for one or the other options to be successful. Nothing is the end of the world till you breathe your lost breath.

    always confident

    An excellent thread from the author in which she has tried to explain philosophically the rule of life. Life never stops, it moves on. So, we must get adjusted with the pain and move forward.. I like the quotation of Richard Bach. I never read this beautiful but apt comment earlier.
    Beware! I question everything and everybody.

    I think getting hurt, feeling the pain of loss is part of the human condition. Any relationship that is deep has the potential to cause pain. Loosing someone dear is the toughest thing to handle. Time restores calm but the loss travels along with you. You learn to manage but it never leaves. It takes a lifetime to understand and cope up. The writer has certainly made a good attempt to portray a positive way.

    There are setbacks and difficulties in life but those who face them boldly and fight, will overcome those adverse situations soon.

    Positive thinking and will to survive is the main thing to keep a person motivated and encouraged to struggle in life.

    It is very true that loss of a dear one cannot be compensated with anything in life, but still we carry on with our lives in a normal way. We do not brood constantly rather we cherish all the old memories. I feel that is what life is all about. If we keep on mourning then we would be spreading negativity which is not good. Adversity always hurts but we need to learn how to cope up with it or else life will get shattered with every passing day.
