Look on the Bright Side

“The darkest storms are often followed by the most beautiful rainbows. Don’t always run away when a dark cloud forms. It can be the greatest show on earth, much better than anything on Netflix.” Khang Kijarro Nguyen

Life is full of ups and downs

My friend..life is like that only. And you can not change it!

“You have to accept the fact that sometimes you are the pigeon, and sometimes you are the statue”. Claude Chabrol

For ups, you are excited and for downs you are depressed and this is natural.

Instead, why don’t you try to make it a balanced life?

“Life is a balance between what we can control and what we can not. I am learning to live between effort and Surrender” Danielle Orner

Here no excitement or depression, just contentment

You may ask what exactly we are supposed to do?

Yes, I have an answer.

“Life is nothing but a balance between holding on & letting go”.  Rumi

If you are still not sure what Rumi is expressing I shall explain.

My friend, you know that your life constantly sees changes and you can not escape from this, but one thing under your control is how you react and take actions.

By actions I mean, you are in a position to decide either to hold on or letting go.

This principle you can apply to anything in your life that constantly harass you.

Things can include your love, people, friends, your possessions, your habits, emotions and even your desires.

Letting go

Letting go is the most powerful of all and it helps you to gain energy, helps you in healing and you are in a position to concentrate on other useful things in your life.

“Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything—anger, guilt, or possessions—we cannot be free. Thich Nhat Hanh

Please share your thoughts

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

  2. Exactly right about that statue and pigeon quote. Life’s ups and downs are like blood in a body.
