Life – A Journey

Wikipedia defines Life as:

Life is a characteristic that distinguishes objects that have signaling and self-sustaining processes (biology) from those that do not, either because such functions have ceased (death), or else because they lack such functions and are classified as inanimate” And Death as:

“Death is the termination of the biological functions that define a living organism. The word refers both to a particular process and to the condition that results thereby”

But I feel there is so much more than the “Beginning” and the “End”. The big part that’s in between is so precious and so adventurous that one fails to comprehend the meaning of complete euphoria. What I mean to say is that No one can ever be satisfied, there’s always something more to do once you’re done with something else. And this feeling is really important. Imagine a world where your done with your Bucket list when your just 12 and you have no more wants or needs and you no longer seek pleasure in activities that most would remember for their entire lives.  It’s quite impossible actually for someone like that to exist. And it’s no hard work at all, All you got to do is get out there and just be YOU. How hard can it be? And this Blog is mainly to send the message to everyone who felt like their Life is lonely, incomplete, meaningless, and purposeless. Life is so much more than that. There is ALWAYS someone around who is ready to lend his/her hand. There’s only one way to live this fantasy and that’s by enjoying it every single second up to the brim of beauty. There are strict rules though, or say facts? That’ll remind us why we don’t smile all the way during this wonderful journey, or maybe We Do…

Rule #1: Life Is Too Short To Be Someone Else.

Rule#2: Indecision is the key to flexibility.

Rule#3: Happiness is merely the remission of pain.

Rule#4: Nostalgia isn’t what it used to be.

Rule#5: The facts, although interesting, are irrelevant.

Rule#6: Someone who thinks logically is a nice contrast to the real world.

Rule#7: Suicide is the most sincere form of self-criticism.

Rule#8: If you think there is good in everybody, you haven’t met everybody.

Rule#9: One seventh of your life is spent on Monday.

Rule#10: By the time you make ends meet, they move the ends.

Rule#11: There is always one more imbecile than you counted on.

Rule#12: A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking.

Rule#13: For every action, there is an equal and opposite criticism.

Rule#14: To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism; to steal from many is research!

Rule#15: Everybody repeat after me… “We are all individuals.”!!

Rule#16: Death to all fanatics!

Rule#17: Bills travel through the mail at twice the speed of checks.

Rule#18: Eagles may soar, but weasels aren’t sucked into jet engines.

Rule#19: Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

Rule#20: Monday is an awful way to spend 1/7th of your life!

Live Like You Mean It ……

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company… a church… a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past… we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our Attitudes.

    • Hey Mo !!
      I still can’t digest the fact that I got a comment from you … The Legendary M.M !!I mean your one of the “Giants” in here…
      Thank You !! I feel so Grateful !! :)

  3. Wonderfully simple and Simply wonderful. I really enjoyed the post; for, life for most parts, is a journey into Serendipity….But Suraj, on another note, Please visit the “blog” I created

    If you do not wish to visit this blog, or cannot adopt or help,PLEASE pass the url to friends;

    For, Rajitha, is not just another orphan among thousands; its about the one who is perhaps the most vulnerable, among the 1 billion Indians.

    This Blog is about the Hope, even if Utopian, that one day it is opened by a person/couple/family,
    who are able to come forward and include Rajitha into their family. So, each time you mention the
    blog to someone else, you are lighting another candle, as part of searching parenthood / foster family, for Rajitha.

    Hence, even without fresh posts/comments, this blog hopes to bring a ray of Hope for Rajitha,
    even if as little as a Candle.

    Its not about Moving mountains. Its like, clearing one pebble…

  4. Hey Suraj, thanks for dropping by my blog (:

    i really like the part where you mention the start and the stop having no significance as compared to the time spent b/w them..but i do wish to add something, no matter by how many leaps and bounds we pass, we have to finish strong!

    oh, and rule#1 is reallly true! (:
