If I look at my life today, there could a lot of things i could just be happy about. A few not-so-good things, a few bad choices, a few lousy and lazy efforts that didn't always make it to the top. The moving on lesson doesn't end.

 If you always got what you vouched for, got luck struck, do what you wanted to, brilliant!!

But that is not always the case right? Today something of this sort has touched me. And for that reason i write it here. Just a few loose thoughts. I bow down to the person this has happened to, because even after failing a gazillion times he still stands upright with the hope that he hasn't lost it all. With the feeling that, what he had achieved is at least a glimpse of his dreams. With the message that, he's given it his best shot even though he has failed.

Ever faced that big failure in your life? Ever lost all you've wanted? Ever worked so damn hard for something you forever dreamt about and then see it crash in minutes? Ever put in so much effort and still got kicked out?  Ever woken up with that smile to do something but come back home dissapointed? Ever got walked out to the front door by someone who has no idea about what your job meant to you? Then you know what this means.

Its nerve wrecking, harsh, and annoying. Its like a gunshot in your head and a stab in you heart. As its said and will always be said, you learn from your failures and move on. What if that opportunity was your only resort? And what if your already familiar enough with this failing-and-walking ahead again concept? What if life can't stop teaching you failure lessons?

but life cant be all fun, can it?
we will have our good times and our bad times..but the one who takes their bad moments and find some good in them are the ones who are always happy.
ive felt lost and depressed many a times.. but afterwards you will have your chance. life isnt always bad. is it?

Hmmm.,. I read somewhere that God tests those people who are close to him. The many number of times you are hit, the more your personality becomes.

I know its easier said than done, yet Life is all about bouncing back and being on the track !!

May your friend have the courage to bear the situation and come out strong !

if you can risk everything
in a moments risk n toss

and buold everything from scratch
then yours is the world
and everything thats in it
more than which you will be a man my son

Our attitude determines how we look at a setback. To a positive thinker, it can be a stepping stone to success. To a negative thinker, it can be a stumbling block..

"But there is suffering in life, and there are defeats. No one can avoid them. But it's better to lose some of the battles in the struggles for your dreams than to be defeated without ever knowing what you're fighting for."
Paulo Coelho

So val(valencia for short :-)), its not all that bad u see...some of us here have done all that we could, given every ounce for what we know with all our heart is right and in the end lost out on it coz of absolutely no reason of ours..but we dont lie and wait to get trampled on..we walk with our heads held high coz we know we darlin hold a hand and walk with us...:-}

:) Just thoughts but thought provoking :)

I just finished reading this book called MAN'S SEARCH FOR MEANING and it talks about man's perseverance even in the face of the biggest disappointments. I think more than anything else, it is the optimism and the eternal spirit of the human mind that keeps us going, even while facing the greatest adversities. Everyone wishes they lived in classroom forever and those who miss student life, know that their classroom is their life and the lessons they learn are the most valuable ones.

I have this fav quote by Winston Churchill: Success is not final; failure is not fatal. I think it holds very very true. :)

Nice post....:)

Hugs >:D<

**What if life can't stop teaching you failure lessons?

Life is how one looks at it... And what have I learnt? Simple - I always stand to gain. Come what may. Failures. Loss. Anything.

I gain experience. Always. Period.

Thought provoking read.

Peace. Have a nice day.


First time 'ere. Sailed in from Colours... See you around.
