I have talked to Google and asked: How to see the bright side of life? Seriously.
I found this site for personal development asking questions about the bright side of life. There are 11 of them and I’m gonna answer it one by one.
1. Are you in good health?
If you are healthy, be grateful you are this way. Millions of people would give anything to be in your shoes, but they can’t because they are ill of some sort of disease. Think of those millions next time you feel there’s no bright side of things in your life.
So-so. I am in good health, that is, no opportunistic infection or whatever. But generally, not. I have an irreversible condition.
2. Have a family?
If you have a family, then know that there are over 143 million orphans in the world! So, you could say that you are luckier and have more to be thankful for than over 143.000.000 people!
I only have my mom left. I am the only kid of the home. I don’t have a close-family relationship with 2nd degree relatives.
3. Do you have any friends?
If you have at least one friend to talk to then you are lucky. Believe it or not, some people just don’t have any friends at all. If you have more than one friend you are really doing great!
This is kinda difficult to answer. It may sound to be a loser.. but I only have a bit. I don’t have the typical cliche friends who go out together and have fun.
4. Do you have a pet?
If you have one it’s great because some people can’t afford to raise a pet or they don’t have enough space to keep one. You should be grateful for your pet! Actually go ahead and give him a big, warm hug right now just for being there for you! And after you do that, give him another hug from me because I’m an animal lover too!
I used to.. from tropical fishes, rabbits and cats. I’m planning to have one though.
5. Do you have someone to call your better half?
If you have someone who cares for you and loves you then you are truly lucky! You should really be grateful for having that! Be grateful that you can love and are loved! Be grateful of all the moment you and him/her spend have spend and will spend together from now one! Cherish every second and live it at it’s full intensity! Many people don’t find someone like that their entire life.
Pretty obvious.. nope. I don’t have any.
6. Do you live in a country with ongoing war?
This is a huge thing to be grateful for! Just look at what is happening right now in Iraq and just \think of how the people that live there must feel. Would you feel good if there was a good chance that today you would die of a hand grenade or a bullet to your head? It’s a little rough but that’s the way life is in Iraq. Tough and unforgiving.
Russian Roulette – Rihanna
As my life flashes before my eyes
I’m wondering will I, ever see another sunrise?
So many won’t get the chance to say goodbye
But it’s too late to pick up the value of my life
I was alone in my post, working the whole day.. i decided to isolate myself
for the day so i can somehow escape from stress and tension.. I decided to play and listen on my ipod and stick to one song, Rihanna’s Russian Roulette.
It’s a pretty heavy song, i mean.. message of the song will strike it’s listeners.
Now, i add this to my favorites.
Russian roulette is a game wherein you put a single bullet on a revolver, point it on your head and try to fire it.. lucky if no bullet comes out. you’re dead if it does. scary game huh…
As the song runs, my burden lightens as my tears starts to drop..
yeah, i look stupid.. crying while working in front of a pc..
it took around 3 hours for me to settle down..
now, burden’s a bit lighter than before.. thanks to Rihanna. 😀
