The Glass Theory!

2Life is a glass half full of water. No one’s life is perfect in the world neither for the richest person in the world nor for the poorest person. Someone said money cannot buy happiness but its better to cry in Mercedes than in bicycle. Yet it forget to consider, life could have happier in-spite of having a bicycle! And all of it depends on a glass of water!

In a small journey of life, I have seen while an orphan is sad about having no one in life, many family cribs about wanting to live alone! While poor are sad about no big houses, rich have an issue with having too many houses to manage! Jobless people struggles to get a small job while people with job complains about how hectic and bad their work life is! But among-st all these people there are still few who are happiest! These few people are around you and you never see them sad! They are not the richest people, they are not the people with all the resources available to them, they might even be jobless or orphans or even married! (pun intended). These is because they are not worried about filling the rest of the empty glass, they are happy to see the glass half full!

There are usually 3 kinds of people in this world:

1. The first and most commonly around you are the one who sees the top half of the glass – the empty half! They are constantly so worried about the empty half that they even forget to acknowledge that rest half of the glass is actually full which in times of need is enough to quench the thirst! They miss to celebrate the most moments in life because the thought of emptiness never let them do so!

2. The second and very rare kind of people are those who see the bottom half of the glass – the filled one! In-spite of being aware that the other half is empty, they tend to live in the moment and stays happy for what they have rather than what they don’t. They celebrate everything as if the life is full!

3. And then there are rarest of rare 3rd kind of people. They are aware of both the part of glass. The empty half and the filled half! They enjoy the moment and yet constantly make efforts to fill the rest half of the glass. Difficult to spot but these people do exist. They don’t miss out celebration in worrying about empty half and yet they don’t over celebrate to make sure they make effort to fill the glass completely!

Doesn’t matter what kind of person you are but remember at the end there was a glass with some water in it. Don’t be so worried about the empty part that you end up breaking the glass. On the other side, don’t be so oblivion to the empty part that one day you end up with nothing. Life is too short to complain. Its a journey which when comes to an end there will always be something that will be left or missed. The only thing that would matter is whether you enjoyed the journey, enjoyed the surroundings and captured the moments or missed most of it worrying about how bad the roads were or how you lost the way or about the other passengers! Everyone’s journey is already been decided – the path, the distance, the destination. The only thing left on us to be decided is how we decide to cover and live the distance and greet the destination either with a grin or a grim! The choice is ours! The life is ours! Lets make it count!

About Mickey!

An engineer by degree, an analyst for employer, brother for some, friends for others and may be even enemy for few but while playing all these different roles for different people, I have lost myself. Who am I? I just hope someone day while expressing these unexpressed feeling, I will figure out myself! Till then, Enjoy the life! Cheerio!
