I think one of the worst approaches towards living is to expect life to be a bed of roses. Whoever does that, is troubled by the smallest of thorns in the garden of experiences. That is why we see so many people feel perturbed by even the smallest of unexpected changes in their world.
I’ve often myself felt that at times. And once this ‘cribbing period’ passes, it is amazing to look back and see that there was nothing wrong with anything, but for a misplaced expectation.
Also, the greatest thing about life is its limitlessness. The human desire to explore and discover, and the sense of fulfillment that one gets from doing something worthwhile – both for ourselves and for others – offer us a grand purpose with infinite possibilities. There is no end to how much one can learn, there is no limit to how much one can use knowledge… there are countless places one can travel to, uncountable people one can meet.
Our time here is finite. It is only worthwhile to make the most of it… by traversing miles with smiles.
