Life is but myriad shades
of smiles, of laughter, of agony, of pain
what you embrace and hold on to longer
determines what you become altogether

Yes, I live with this principle in my life. My mind has long back accepted and tuned to selective screening of all that is hurtful and negative. It devotes very few moments to them and quickly navigates me to a happier zone (albeit it still takes efforts from my side).Though it is much easier said than done, it is absolutely how you condition yourself. Actually the human mind has a relatively stronger tendency to confine and trap you into the sad periods of your life and put you down terribly. Many resurface from these cycles while many end up being depressed. What I have learnt out of my own experiences is that try to get out of this sulking state as quickly as possible because unfortunately knowingly and unknowingly even the society will only add to your woes. Sometimes their compassion makes you feel worse. I understand they mean no harm and only worry about you but sometimes the impact is vice versa.

One of my friend's son had a fracture in his right hand a couple of months before the board exams and I saw her standing strong by her son’s side and the kid was fine too managing things but the people who came to see him delivered long speeches to him of how sad they are to know about this disastrous accident. Their hearts go out to him and how now his boards percentage with be affected and his career is at a stake and blah blah. This soon dampened both mom and son’s spirits.

The next week, on my morning walk, I saw this friend of mine sitting on a bench in the garden. Her eyes were bloated with tears and evidently she did not want to cry in front of her son and told me everything... it only took me minutes that morn with her and her son over the breakfast and I am glad they became their usual fighter selves soon enough. The child did fairly well in his exams and I am so proud of him.

The matter of fact is, life is always be a fierce roller coaster, you can enjoy it with a smile and adrenaline rush or can cry in fear and sulk and decide not to board it at all which often won’t be possible, so why not choose the former option. I always do that and walk out of my comfort zone several times to embrace life in its full vigour with equal zest and a smile as wide as river Nile. As a new age saying goes when life throws lemons at you make a lemonade out of it and sip it with a smile. I live my each day by it, one step at a time.

For my entire series, extraordinary slices of my ordinary life, this April in the global #AtoZChallenge, , I have tried to pen several instances to you where I have not left happiness’ side in the toughest of the tough situations and that’s perhaps the reason I am aptly Destiny’s Chosen Child. It has tested me, it has troubled me, it has even screwed me but it has also eventually made me win because I never kneeled down in front of the terrible spells it has put me with.

I thus end this series with the message to you all, my precious people,

Hold on to happiness
work hard so that it never fades
flaunt and own the zest to smile
until to this world you bid goodbye

Love You All! This place shall always wait for your wonderful footsteps fall on it over and over again and a zillion thanks for everything ♥️
