Amazing life


> What makes life so wonderful that people want to live out despite all its difficulties these days? What is it about life that charms us so much?
>
> Of course, life is lived very subjectively. Everyone has perspectives that guide and lead activities defining life. That makes umpteen varieties of ways in which life can be lived. And enjoyed.
>
> Sorrow is often what makes life miserable. As opposed to joy, Sorrow colours life very differently. It shades and overshadows certain realities that are very important for happiness. Hope is one such. Hope is extremely important if one needs to live happily. Hope brings smile in the face of despair. Hope is the crux of most religions. Hope keeps Gods relevant. Hope enables a woman to bear pain. Hope strengthens a lover's separation and a prisoner's loneliness. Hope makes medicine makers millionaires. Hope populates interview halls. Hope educates little boys and girls. Hope researches the unheard and the undisclosed. Hope fills voids when faced with challenges. Hope hopes against hope.
>
> So learn to have hope. Because hope makes life sweeter than it actually is. Hope derives unlimited strength out of nowhere. You only have to believe in the best, hope for the best. Hope doesn't cost anything. It's just an attitude. A simple positive attitude. If you can cultivate this healthy habit of hope, you will achieve Heights you haven't imagined. Hope is so powerful that you can never leave it easily once you possess it. Like a lizard it holds on to your life's roof and provides strength to your dwelling. Hope prolongs life.

> Am I talking in the air too much? Here is proof of what I have discussed. I have a relative who has cancer. She is battling with it for 15 years now. The treatment cures first and clandestinely comes back more powerfully. Her hope is that she gets to see her two boys complete school and be on their own before she bids farewell to this world. And she has achieved it. Now she has reached the end point. She sees it, with courage. She got what she wanted from life by hoping against hope. Imminent death doesn't make her unhappy. She is happy because she got the ransom she demanded of life. Hope kept her joys a reality. Hope made her life meaningful even on her death bed.
>
> That is what hope can do. Wonders. Magic. It's the medicine for most of life's problems. It's the trick false prophets and God's treasurers make use of when the distressed devotees reach out- Giving hope. But for hope, there would be no growth, change, and no healthy challenge.
>
Therefore have hope. Hope When it looks absolutely hopeless. And witness the magic.
