IN THE WALK OF LIFE


Life they say is no fairy tale but i tend to disagree for just like the setup and situational traversal of life which goes through its fair share of highs and lows, there is no fairy tale which doesn't put the prince or the princess through hell of a time before presenting them with the perfect "Happily Ever After" ending. So cursing life and accusing it of injustice, bias and deception might not make a very justified picture itself after all. In that case what does it really take to find one's own happy ending, or more importantly, does the walk on so called thorns ever lead to a garden of roses? These are the questions that can have both one answer as well as many. The choice lies entirely with us on what to believe and rejoice.
While destination is what may be primarily bugging our minds, for once let's grace the walk itself with some of our attention. For many the walk is a painful experience being borne either for the sake of a supposedly beautiful bright and happy destination or merely for sustenance. While the former still makes a good enough reason, the latter is a picture of meaninglessness which is far worse than any pain. But if destination fails to generate any interest, what could possibly make the walk worth it??? Well the answer, if you believe me, is the "WALK" itself. Relishing it, devouring it's various flavors as if trying a new dish, humoring it's overrated drama, experiencing the various people it introduces us to, welcoming the failures with bravery, celebrating the victories like never before and striving for the wants of heart till the very last; all this and much more is what we might miss if we continue to walk with our heads down, refusing to face the life which shall reveal its colors only when we look it in its eyes. 
And so while the destination is important and shall always be, let's be receptive to the walk as well!!!
