Oh! That’s Life

that's life

How would life look like if its all goody good, everything looks perfect, no flaws, no challenges, nothing. I will definitely go bored of it, trust me, we all would. We are wired to accept challenges, take on heat right off the burner. Human mind races to get things waiting to be solved. Life is like a bag full of puzzles, we solve one other prop up to test our knack and patience. All is well and fair until we keep on trying to live it to the fullest.

“Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.”

Aristotle Quote

Its okay if you fall –

Ups and downs are part of the learning process, failures should not be seen as the end of the road but as a lesson. Don’t you know how a baby starts walking? Starts with toddling, then holding things for support. Standing on the wobbly feet only to fall and try again. This process of trying is life, the feeling of jubilation over achieving the task or moving on. Failing has an important part in our growth chart, and one should never be afraid of falling down. Oh! that’s okay, falling down is required sometimes to rise above all.

Its okay not to feel happy –

We are allowed to feel unhappy or grumpy on the situations that do not go according to the plan A. There is always plan B, C, D and so on. Showing emotions do not make us weak, it only depicts the fact that we are made of flesh and blood. It’s alright to remember the past, but only to take learning from it and move on. Oh! that’s totally okay to feel human, it’s our humanity that makes the whole difference.

Also, read It’s OK to say NO sometimes.

Life is what you think it is, in your head.

That’s Life by Frank Sinatra explains it so well – (listen to it, you won’t be disappointed).

  1. This is so true. It is okay to fall, to have failures and then get up and move life’s full of imperfections and it is essential to have them so that we learn to appreciate the happiness and joys of life. A beautiful thought indeed.

  2. I really had guessed that the next one with O will be on optimistic. But then then that’s what is the summary of Oh That’s life too. Good one . . . ??

    1. I agree life is not before of roses and if there are happy moments, there are good ones too. It’s up to us to make the most of it. That’s life!

  3. Life has its ups and downs. We must fail, but have courage and strength to stand up. Earlier times, we used to take a fall seriously and mope. With time and younger nation, we take failures in our stride and move on. Learning to lose is as important as savouring a victory.

      1. What a lively post! I loved the title so much.. and as you say it’s ok not to feel happy. It happens often when I don’t feel happy. I start panicking and crying eventually. I loved the post it makes me positive:)

  4. This post imparts such an important lesson. The true essence of life is to take everything in one’s stride and move on. I love the title too 🙂

  5. I loved the part where you say, its ok to feel unhappy. Yes ofcourse you will have to take a deep breathe and stand back to go for the kill, but there’s no problem in taking a minute to brood to your heart’s content.

  6. Life ka sach yehi hai, per accept karna bahut mushkil hota hai, ups to hum khushi me paar karty hain per kai baar down tod deta hai….
    Sabke apne apne experience hain
    Bahut accha likha aapne, bahut positivity mili ??

  7. Agree. It’s OK to be not OK.
    I remember reading this somewhere that it’s OK if you fall down and lose your spark. Just make sure that when you get back up, you rise as the whole damn fire!!
    Thanks for today’s dose of positivity, Dipika!!

  8. Life is all about the ups and downs. That is what makes the entire journey interesting. We should keep moving forward in the positive direction and be as much helpful to others as possible. There is no better ways to achieve contentment than to help and spread smile on other’s faces.

  9. I love the post and coompletely agree with you that its ok to be unhappy and its ok to fall, at the end it is not about pretending all the time a state of happiness, joy and success. real life shows all colours and we need to accept the way it is.

  10. “Its ok to not be happy” is the best thing you said in this post, Dips. We’re always told that happiness comes from within so if I’m unhappy then may be I’m not trying enough. Why to put pressure on us to be happy too?

  11. It’s perfectly ok to fall but needs to understand that we should learn too from every episode of life…need to spread our wings and orbit!!!
