Do you ever wake up one morning and think what a life? Sometimes routine and the daily drudge of chores, monotonous schedules, pressures of work ,rigid commitmets all bog you down and the little pleasures in life pass by without us noticing them.You forget to hear the birds chirping, you fail to notice the sunrise and the beautiful sunset,you fail to notice that you are alive and well whilst other people in the world are living in stricken poverty and in fear of their lives.

Sometimes  the negatives in our lives tilt the scales causing an imbalance and over shadow the positives.I guess we all go through this at some stage of our lives and its no different that today I feel like this.I am sure it will pass and the small pleasures in life will soon be as important to me as they always have been.

I am sharing here a beautiful inspirational poem quoted by Mother Teresa  about life.

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty,
admire it.
Life is bliss,
taste it.
Life is a dream,
realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty,
complete it.
Life is a game,
play it.
Life is a promise,
fulfill it.
Life is sorrow,
overcome it.
Life is a song,
sing it.
Life is a struggle,
accept it.
Life is a tragedy,
confront it.
Life is an adventure,
dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious,
do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it…..

Mother Teresa

  1. That was a beautiful poem on LIFE…
    particularly the last line:
    Life is life, fight for it…..

  2. Life is a game, play it.

    Game is life being in a gamin company

    i read somewhere ” Iam not scared of death.I am a gamer..I have many lives ”

    Nice writeup.

    With all the global warming thing..yeah sure we should

  3. Live is a mystery, don’t think too much about it 😛

  4. I think if we try to think too much abt how life is and how it should be, we tend to get stuck in sorrow and regrets. So its better to do whatever you’re doing in the best possible way.

    “Cause just when the Caterpillar thought the World’s over..
    It became a Butterfly”<3
