I have gone through hard times with the intention that Im special, thats d reason I get to experience challenges . And the way you convert the down's into up's is where your intellect lies.
I do agree with karma. But what has to happen will happen. You cannot change it. But what you can change, is your approach to life and its hard times.
This is lovely! Totally my views!
I do believe in what will happen will too. You cannot change something if it's truly meant to happen, especially when it's not in your control. But very few take it as an opportunity to learn and grow from it, rather than grumbling all through it. No one can change some of the things that have to happen in your life, but only you can change your attitude towards it.
But then, also one thing: What we see depends mainly on what we look for. Some desire is necessary to keep life in motion. Strong lives are motivated by dynamic purposes after all. I don't blame anything happening to me, because I know either I am responsible for it, or it's something in no one's control specifically. Blaming God, or Destiny is only going to take us as far really. The rest is always on us.
I think this is a great song on life:
Tu bhi tu hai, main bhi main hu
Duniya sari dekh ulat gayi
Tu na jane main na janu
Kasie sari bath palat gayi
Ghatni hi thi yeh bhi ghatna
Ghathe ghathe lo yeh ghat gayi
Ab koi fikar nahin
Gum ka bhi zikar nahin
Haan… hota hun main jis raste pe
Aaye khushi wahin
Aazad hun mein tujh se
Aazad hai tu mujhse
Haan.. jo jee chahe jaise chahe
Karle aaj yahin
Laj sharam ki choti motti
Jo thi dori woh bhi kat gayi
Chauk chawbare gali mohale
Khol ke mein sare ghonghat gayi
Tu na badli mein na badala
Dilli saari dehk badal gayi
Life's not always fun, but those who survive through without enjoying each moment are not great also. True you don't laugh everyday, but suffering and being serious everyday is not life either. Challenges are meant to be taken and lived up to. And for that, you only need two things: the determination, and the stamina to have fun afterwards. No moment in life comes back, I believe in living each of it, that's what my mom taught me, and that's what I would be teaching my children someday too.
