Is Grass greener on the other side? Could be!

In life, we often move along with certain notions and pre-determined mindsets. Let me test some of them here with a slight touch of logical humour –

  1. We know life isn’t a bed of roses and we also know roses have thorns but anyone thought how’s it for the thorns? It could easily be a bed of roses for them!
  2. If you can’t convince them confuse them. But, if you can’t confuse them shouldn’t you confirm it once and for all? Do it.
  3. Early bird gets the worm but worms couldn’t be sleeping or is it that they got up first? So, getting up early in the morning is a good habit but not if you are a worm!
  4. Only common people can say ‘common sense isn’t common’ and they know it better, no doubt! So, could I proclaim “‘Common Sense’ belongs to the extraordinary…”? I think I can!
  5. They say ‘forget the past… live in the present’ & they also say ‘learn from your mistakes’ but how will I know what mistakes I made if I have to forget the past? It’s apt to say let’s not forget our mistakes.
  6. ‘Never say never’ – this could be the most unintelligent phrase in English… after all, you just had to say it twice to convey the meaning! Besides, ‘never’ is a negative word even if used in positive context.
  7. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush but what’s wrong with having more than two especially when multitasking is the buzz word today? Just need to balance it right.
  8. Whoever said, ‘money can’t buy everything’ must have had lots of money or lots of everything! But it can also mean ‘everything isn’t for sale’ and ‘money is cheap’.
  9. ‘A rose by any other name would smell as sweet’ quoted William Shakespeare but interesting question is how do we know what we are referring to when we talk about the sweetness? And no way, names are just for namesake!
  10. Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream. Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream. This is a popular nursery rhyme and the idea is to ‘row our life boats quietly and happily while living the dream!’ The question is figuring out whether it is really a stream, river or an ocean where we are rowing our boats.

‘Life is a mystery’ so, don’t worry if you get lost. We all are…!

Keep going though in search of your path and when you are sure you have found your path, keep rowing more!
