"LIFE", a word with 4 letters, 1 syllable and a meaning beyond reach. A simple word said with so much ease yet has so much depth. Life is unpredictable. We never know what lies ahead or what we left behind. Life is like a flowing river, which even though has lots of turns, continues its journey. It continues flowing even when the stones are interrupting its path. Same is the course of life; it goes on irrespective of the ups and downs experienced. One should learn to take life as a one time opportunity, to make the best out of it. Sometimes it’s painful to continue or we wish we never had to continue. But if you are in a dark room and you see a shadow, it means there is light somewhere.

//Even if now you feel dark and low,

You gather up, think and stand,

Then steams you blow, and off you go

Because the light at the end of the tunnel will definitely glow\\

Life is funny as well. It shows you this ocean of opportunities in which you want to just dive in and on the other hand seems to be these chains that have locked you up.But we remember that things are not always so bad and our mistakes don’t define us. Sometimes the perspective differs, the chains maybe holding us back for good, because maybe we are not yet ready to dive into that ocean. But we are the divers for the ocean and we are the only one's to break the chains. Its the aspect of time that matters.

Every book is different from each other. Some have hard cover while some are paperback. Some have the most vibrant cover page while some have the gloomiest one. One is tragedy, one a comedy and the other a thriller. Some have the most interesting summaries at the back while some are left with the cliffhangers. Some have the smallest font while the other has giant one. Some have colorful pictures while the others paint the black and white. Some leave you with tears while the others fill you happiness and hope. But the common thing between all of them is that they are unique. Nobody has the same story or the same ending. Nobody had the same privileges or has experienced the same pain. Similarly life is the thread, all of us are hanging onto.

“Life is like a camera. Focus on what’s important.

Capture the good times. And if things don’t work out, just take another shot.”

Life is also considered as a gift. It seems to impress philosophers with its vast dimensions yet the most important thing it signifies is existence. Our existence in this universe, the ant's existence ,the trees existence and the sky. The basic thing is how such different things come together just by being there and making this work. Like the ratio of a human life and a tree's life is huge, yet they complete the universe together.

A book offers a roller coaster ride of emotions to the readers. It has a beginning, Climax and an end.A Book may end but its impact lives on. We are a system of billions of stars, together with planets and dust. Similarly, Life is to be lived like a book, with full of emotions, love and hope. And endeavour to make ours a bestseller.

Life is not inevitable, we are not inevitable. Humans are certainly destined to leave this material world. There could be another world or other dimensions but surely we are not returning to this. So why holdback and not accomplish the full potential this version of us has to offer. Why not live those rainbows, why not love the sky and why not feel the touch of the wind. Down is the mantra to live by;

“Live, love and laugh;

Because life is not a destination to be reached

It is a journey to be cherished”
