Don't Fret over Bad Times..


 
I look at people around me and imagine how they would look ten years from now. I know the answer. Older.

And then I virtually turn to look at myself. And wonder.. how would I look after ten years? I know the answer yet again..

How often we neglect this basic fact of life – we are aging by each minute, growing closer to our end. Is this philosophy? I think, it is. The greatest of all knowledge that we can accumulate in life. It is this truth that all of us know but fail to remind ourselves. And this is the reason for all our sorrows!

How?  Well, we keep worrying our heads daily over some BIG problem life has thrown upon us – financial problem, career problem, boss problem, work problem, property problem, family problem, relationship problem etc. There is a simple way to solve all this but we overlook this method each time.

The solution is to understand that any problem we are facing currently is TEMPORARY. It will pass. After all, everything does pass, doesn’t it. Nothing remains ‘as is’ forever – your face, looks, love, financial situation, a relationship, children, society, priorities. They change.

So, whenever in problem, remember this – It will CHANGE. It has to

Don’t fret over bad times or try to hold on to good times. As, sooner or later, with or without our wish, it will change. And you will have to MOVE ON.

The best thing to do is to enjoy NOW. This very moment is yours, so take control.

Be happy!

  1. Very very well written. Its something that subconciously plagues all our thoughts. So paradoxical that the same ideas that worry us(things-wont-ever-stay-as-it-is) are sometimes most comforting :)
