An Incident that changed my life
Human life is so designed that
we will face various types of
situations in life and learn
various lessons from them and
grow. Every situation is an
experience for us. Our job is to
extract as much benefit from
every experience as we
can.Every occasion,no matter
how insignificant it may
appear,provides us with an
opportunity to learn something
or the other,if we can keep our
mind open for learning.
There is an incident which i
would like to narrate,which has
helped me to always remain
optimistic. I was busy shopping
during my christmas holidays
and after picking a couple of
things, i was walking down the
street. Suddenly i noticed a
disabled person crossing the
road. It was a very pathetic
sight. This man had no hands and
had only one leg.Itappeared that
it was a result of a terrible
accident he experienced
earlier.what surprised me the
most was seeing a smile on his
face. I was wondering as to how
he could smile inspite of being in
such a terrible and miserable
state.I learnt a lot from him. I
understood that what
determines our happiness or
unhappiness is not the external
circumstances but our mental
attitude or reaction towards
those circumstances.
Our life is shaped by our
thoughts. If we think positively
our attitude towards life would
be positive.But when we have a
negative outlook,our life would
be a bundle of negation.A person
who thinks positive sends out
positive thoughts around which
activates the environment and
he also draws back positive
vibrations.If we give vibrations
of love through our
thoughts,words and deeds,we
would get more of love.A
positive person finds acceptance
everywhere.Contentment brings
cheerfulness in one's life.
