Alphabets are a set of symbols, but they would remain just that if they are not aligned rightly. A rightly aligned set of symbols become a word, a string of meaningfully related words become a sentence. A group of logically connected sentences become a paragraph, which can then be fused together to create the magic called books, articles, stories, poems and the like. The magic lies in how we rightly use words to express an idea and drive the idea further to create whatever we wish.
Life is like this too. Our approach to it, which we normally call - attitude, determines how we align our life. Right responses create pleasant incidents, which in turn leads to learning some important life skills. These in turn help us string several agreeable incidents together to make for a happy life. A happy life then can move towards contentment, adventure or even excitement. It is then entirely up to each individual to make what he or she wants to do with their life.
How do we make the right responses? Attitude, intelligence, emotions, choices, reactions, priorities, values and goals could be some of the key components in this process. Aligning the right reaction or attitude to an incident, with the proper use of logical thought process, making the right choices after considering one's priorities in life with personal values and goals in mind would make for proper alignment in life. This alignment would be the backbone to our happiness or satisfaction in life. When the right sequence is muddled for any reason, chaos results, making life not so agreeable anymore.
It is the choice of individuals whether to make the process of life simple or complicated. when we have simple goals in mind, it is easy to find the right response in any situation. A well-defined goal makes life easy. It is half the journey completed. The rest of the journey depends on focus, attention to detail and learning from the process itself. Learning to enjoy the moment without pegging our happiness on something in the future makes the journey itself a stress free ride.
Whether we want to make a poem or a novel of our lives is totally in our hands. The skills we work on everyday will help us get there. So keep working those alphabets, I mean skills and it will soon become a fine bouquet in your hands.
