L.I.F.E. - an Abbreviation
To be true, it is not my own thought but of an inspiration. Life is beautiful as we know. We don’t take birth, rather we are given, and I would say by a scheme planned by our parents and the almighty. It’s a scheme which lists all our deeds from inception till conclusion. According to me, to commence, we are given to such a group, called family, which complements our dispositions. Throughout our lives we always stand along this grouping unit and hence for me LIFE stands for – Living In Family Environment.
We come to this beautiful life crying our hearts out. But if we don’t cry, we are made to, as it is a general indication of a living healthy child. Holding in her arms her first child, a mother is overwhelmed to see such a beautiful ...view middle of the document...
She has her own people to assist whenever faced by an obstacle. And hence she is full of hope and pleasure for the life to be led ahead.
As a bud turns into a flower and then fruit, which is filled with juice, from infancy to adolescence and further to a fully ripened adult, life moves on. Burdened with mutiple pressures of career, job, et cetera, this adult again seeks the lap of her mother where she would rest her head for a while and stay thoughtless. She seeks her siblings to talk to and feel light from within. She is curious for the night to come so that everyone would share their updates while on the dining. She loves to learn driving from her dad, cooking from her mother and workout their desires.
As she grows up, a new phase of life awaits her. A new member is going to join her family and she is going to be a part of another family. Yes, now the time has come for her to leave her own people and make some more into her own. She is now getting married. Another family is now to be taken care of, which showers all its love and affection upon her. It is as if she is given another birth. Now again she starts her Life In (a new) Family Environment.
To some of the readers the above might seem like story of a castle in the sky, but to me it is truth. We must not always blame the contemporary or the prevailing times. It is not only that the past times were good. One of my in hand quotes says – Life is what you think it is. You think good of it, even with a poor face it’ll be good to you and vice versa. Choice is all yours.
Let us be genuine and truthful to the parents who give us birth, to the siblings who are always our back, rather to a family so lovable. Let us not only be lost in a world of our own, rather Live In a Family Environment.
