Optimisim is always generated .. it is never there and so is peseimism. When there is no way and all hallways and corridors are dark; we seek optimism and that seeking is our hope which in return gives us optimism.
I agree that optimism in daily life is at times difficult to achieve but not impossible. So whenever I experience difficulty, I always try to figure out stuff by either trying all possible and impossible options (impossible options.. yeah! because maybe I am wrong about the impossibility of that option) and I tell myself that if I want to solve this problem and come out of it.. I need to be an optimist rather than sitting and being pesimistic.
Sometimes its not easy but most of the times its fruitful..

Long ago I met a gentleman who was working in a hospital as an administrator. I talked to him till we reached our destinations and bid him farewell. The conversation that I had with him was nothing more than time passing chat but today I felt that the chat I had with him was not just a chat.. Those words had meaning in it and that is one of the reasons why I want to share this with the world.
I was going back home from school and had to stop by at the library for some books. On my way to library this gentleman approached me and inquired about the same library I was going to.. Since I’m not really good in explaining addresses I offered him to come with me as he seemed like a “unharmful” person. He asked me about what I was studying and whether I liked it or not. I answered that yes I like it but I dont get it at times and then I dont like it. He said,
“When you like to do something, you grow fond of it, you feel pleasure in doing that thing and nothing matters then.. Even the hardest problem and issue seem to fly away. You put in your efforts to do the best and you never give up!”
To me, this seemed like a law we used to study in books. I did agree with him and quoted him every now and then but I experienced it in it’s true spirits today.
Whatever we like to do or we love, whether it is some activity or a person we never give up on it/her/him and when you dont complain or whine about something or someone who is buggy, difficult or tensionomatic that means you are in love with it, you like to do it even if it gets too much at times..
It is nothing new but the realization is new in terms of my growing passion 🙂

“What do you want? You can’t want to be happy, because that’s too easy and too boring. You can’t want only to love, because that’s impossible. What do you want? You want to justify your life, to live it as intensely as possible. That is at once a trap and a source of ecstasy. Try to be alert to that danger and experience the joy and the adventure of being that woman who is beyond the image reflected in the mirror.”

We always need a reason to live our life; this reason is our support to carry on. We keep searching for reasons in our life to live with enthusiasm and let happiness rule our world. We consider these reasons to be magic of our existence. Although sometimes we stand at a point where it’s difficult to acquire the reason we have chosen or thought to be our magic or find one. Sometimes these reasons on which we base our lives doesn’t seem enough, the magic seems to have lost somewhere…
Then we question ourselves, “what are we lacking that these reasons do not seem enough? Where did the magic go away?”
What we lack is clarity of our mind. We are actually looking for our life’s magic in the wrong places. The reason to live our lives should not be subjected to people or things. Our magic should not be dependent on others, our magic or reason is ours, it’s somewhere within our existence. As Ralph Waldo Emerson seconds me by his great quote,
“Nothing can bring you happiness but yourself”
Happiness and reasons to live our lives comes from within, from ourselves. You can’t put someone or something to be responsible for your happiness or you can’t hold them as your reason to live, what if they vanish? then how will you live? you would search for another such reason and with time it will vanish or go away or die.. The best of best reasons to live your life is to set a goal in your life and spend your life to achieve it everyday. Then even when people will leave you, things will expire, you will still have your reason intact and you won’t feel lost or there won’t be any such thing as ‘missing’ in your lives..
