This is my 400th post. Made me introspect the meaning of life.
Here goes a wonderful one from Pascal of the seventeenth century:
When I consider the short duration of life, swallowed up in the eternity that lies before and after it, when I consider the little space I fill and I see, engulfed in the infinite immensity of spaces of which I am ignorant, and which know me not, I rest frightened and astonished, for there is no reason why I should be here rather than there. Why now rather than then? By whose order and direction have this place and time been ascribed to me!
I am no philosopher. Surprisingly, many have asked me how I could keep my smile intact. Maybe the devil heard it and tried his trick.
My closest friends had to move off, many lost jobs, family went and roommate shifted.
Putting me in a room alone is like offering a monkey banana after sewing its lips.
When a window closes, many others open. Some bloggers like Dr N and FW stayed with me.
Somewhere down the line, I realized I was losing the mightiest weapon: The smile. I have sworn to bring it back. Not only on myself but also all my associates, whoever crosses my path.
You may be among the Forbes’ top ten richest list. But you are just a robot if you can’t smile.
So here goes. Am standing before the mirror and heyyy, me smiling… grinning…all the way.J
What about you? my darling friend.
