LIFE!! is it worthwhile?




"We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope."
- Martin Luther jr

As she looked out of her window, she saw children playing in the garden, some anxious faces talking to each other, some elderly people taking brisk walks...she thought to herself "Life... so ironic, the more it challenges to frustrate and trouble us, the more we try to hold on to it!". It has its own pits and falls, stretches of smooth roads, yet the journey is worthwhile...or is it???

She had been a Software Engineer, as each one of her friends....She had trudged upon the road most frequently traveled. It had been days before she had called up her college friends with whom she had spent the happiest days of her life yet not one day did she complain about it because she believed she was doing something worthwhile with her life...

"Worthwhile!!! Humbug!!"- Uncle scrooge would have said...

And then one day she met with an accident, an accident that changed her perspective on life, its beauty and purpose. All along what lakhs of money had not taught her, an accident because of which she had lost almost everything (including her job) did. The first time she sat in that wheelchair, nothing seemed more monstrous an idea. However, gradually as it became her best friend, she started to stroll along, meet people and probably for the first time in her life she started to look at what surrounded her.... each dawn of a day, each Sunset, each ray of Moonlight and each raindrop seemed to touch her and say "Life is indeed beautiful!!! Hope is just around the corner"

The nurses who took care of her day and night, the ward boy who brought flowers for her every single day with a beaming smile seemed to have more fulfilling lives than she ever did…

She felt enlivened, energized, invigorated at the thought that someday she will be able to run in the sands of the beach, run as if wind was chasing her or jump out in ecstatic joy… things that she had never done when she was sitting before the Computer almost 16hrs a day ...it was then she made a decision that she will bring a smile upon every face she sees and help in the betterment of atleast one life a day. Then "Life will be truly worthwhile!!!"

    hmmm... tis good... tis good to note that you didnt kill someone for a change... though you had to incapacitate her... still its a ray of hope fer all ur nemesis...:p

    Bring a smile to others faces eh!!! Something tells me that, that is the one thing most people needed to be reminded on a daily basis... its good to kno dat someone is spreadin the message.. :)

    Hey atom...a Beautiful one...
    Its so true that the richest people on earth dont necessarily live the happiest on earth..
    The happiest person on earth is the person who can make others around him happy and unfortunately they are so few in number...
    So from now on lets try to make a difference in others' lives and lets try to bring a smile on others' faces.Life is a short one and lets not waste quarrelling with each other.
    Thumbs Up!

    I love that anecdote -- sometimes we truly forget what the most important things are out of life. We get too caught up with work and money that we ignore the more important things. That was a good post :)
