Some Thoughts About Life

I came across a beautiful quote by one of the world’s greatest philantropists, Mother Teresa of Calcutta. Just in time though, for my nonchalant attitude about the state I am in, is it a coincidence that I was able to read her aphorism? I like the last two lines – the lines my mum would always tell me.


β€œLife is an opportunity, benefit from it.

Life is beauty, admire it.

Life is a dream, realize it.

Life is a challenge, meet it.

Life is a duty, complete it.

Life is a game, play it.

Life is a promise, fulfill it.

Life is sorrow, overcome it.

Life is a song, sing it.

Life is a struggle, accept it.

Life is a tragedy, confront it.

Life is an adventure, dare it.

Life is luck, make it.

Life is too precious, do not destroy it.

Life is life, fight for it.”

― Mother Teresa


From Anais Nin

I agree with her. I may not be an authority in writing but I noticed that most of my posts revolve on how I live life and how other people live their lives. At times, I get ideas by seeing things through their own perspective. What I see is entirely different from what the other person sees. So, it is good that we also see through their eyes and feel through their hearts while we write.

My ideas usually come not at my desk writing but in the midst of living. – Anais NinΒ
