Every disagreement
With another means:
You have one more chance to learn
How to respect, honor, value another view.

Every argument with another means:
You have one more chance to know
What works for you and what against.

Every unfair criticism from another means:
You have one more chance to learn
To believe in yourself…
Value, respect and honor
What you hold to be fair and just.

Every heartbreak that comes
Like a bolt from the blue means:
You have one more chance
To nurture your soul
And awaken the spring of goodness
That you never thought buried so deep within you.

Every hell-bent tormentor
Who so relentlessly coups
To destroy your child-like spirit means:
You have one more chance to learn
What patience is…
What compassion and forgiveness are.

Every tear that you shed
And every smile that you send mean:
Life is beautiful…
Yes, so beautiful!

Yes Sonal, there is no negativity in this world except how we 'react' to it!

It is the 'truth'... I know... Yet, I am miles away from it!

I try to find some 'sanity' in all that you and I call 'negativity'.

I do not want to end my life in bitterness, sure.

I have a choice. Yes, I do.

It really feels there is nothing we should be complaining about... Everything has something good, something beautiful hidden in!

True Arnab... there is nothing to crib about! But, we do!

Sir the moral is the life always keeps giving us the "next chance"
"one more chance".....

Neither we stop redeeming these chances

Nor life stops giving us.

May be just to complete the circle;

Regards Soniya.

Oh yes, Soniya... Life doesn't stop giving us chances!
