Came across a new term today “Vexation.” It refers to a lasting distress condition. Life is like that. We are constantly under distress. Sometimes emotional, sometimes financial, career or spouse, health or bad people one or the other thing keeps the “vexation cycle” going on. 😦
So, does that mean, being a human being we have lost the key to perfect life. Right?
Wrong. There is no such thing called perfect life. So, why we should look for a perfect happy life. And not finding it, crib and become more unhappy.
This life is meant to be lived not spent. Most of us hardly understand what’s the difference between living and spending life. Even animals have a life, which they spend mechanically looking for food and water everyday. They don’t have a goal higher than these basic needs.
But, we any day stand above the beasts. We have a brain, we have emotions and needs. We feel, we interpret. So, why not live rather than spend our life. Happiness comes in small packets which we often miss in hope of receiving a huge, nicely wrapped gift box which will fill our life with happiness and make it perfect.
Let’s live by every moment, not sparing a moment when we can crack a joke, laugh, smile… this very moment will never come again in our life. Let’s see what’s good and leave the bad. Remember the smiles, the nice words people said for us, forget the bitter people and their hard words. There’s no space for them in life. 🙂
Let’s take a pledge to break the “vexation cycle.”
Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.
