La Vie en Rose

I always believe we all live life in the best possible way that we know how. Our way may not be the right way or the most ideal way, but it is the only one we know how to follow. We go with what seems right at the moment only to realize, sometimes that we have made a mistake. How then do we go about rectifying the wrongs?

Life would certainly go a much smoother path if only we knew in advance what was right and what was wrong. If only we have the ability to foresee what the consequences of our actions would be. I always tell myself never to regret anything. What has happened cannot be changed. The aftermath of each decision we make remains… and we have no choice but to live with it. The best thing to do next would be to make the most out of it and if possible, learn.

On the other hand, if we can take life with a pinch of salt, if we can look at things in a different and wider perspective, perhaps it would be a lot easier to be happy. We do not have to take ourselves too seriously. We only live once.

We all fall at times. If we can just pick ourselves up, brush our knees off, and stride straight ahead, we might reach a greater height than we ever did before the fall. And even if we do not, at least we are far away from rock bottom. We give ourselves a better shot the next time around.

I do not know the answers. I do not even know the questions. I cannot see what lies ahead and I cannot hear the whispers telling me how I should be doing things. I do what I can right at this moment, keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for the best.

La Vie en Rose.

    I think to see the wider perspective you got to take off the pink glasses, take a step back and see things unclouded, objectively. Everyone has different opinions, some are right, some are wrong. It's difficult to know which are right and which are wrong, time will reveal itself. What we can get is from experience and learning from them. We can learn from other's past experiences too. History has a tendency to repeat itself and we can learn from other's success and failures. People don't live in isolation and learn from each other, thats what friends are for. We also learn from those older and wiser than us and see the innocence and purity that children possess (which we might be lacking now). Those older and wiser have been through what we have and can look back and see the path that they have walked or where they should have walked. We can also look back on our own path that we have walked so far, if its not whta we wanted its not to late to change course. If its good, then we should continue on the same path. Only we can make the decisions ourselves as it is our own path and destiny. :-p
