LIFE – Take it or leave it.LIFE. Some have it easy and some have it easy-ish, whilst it’s a very trying experience for many, and hell-ish for many more. Many of those who are blessed with an easy life can become so comfortable, that they have no care for those who have a tough life. They tend to lack respect for those who struggle to survive, whilst those who have a hard life can become so angry and resentful, that they have no care for those who have it easy/easier.
You may think that a person (e.g. the poor, the sick, the homeless) who seems to accept whatever happens to him/her as being lazy or foolish for not doing anything about it, whilst you may view the person who is constantly hustling/fighting for “betterment” (e.g. a roadside vendor, a farmer, a car salesman) as being note-worthy, but who’s to say that either state of being is BETTER than the other?
Taking whatever live sends our way – blessings and testings – can be beneficial, but it depends upon how we respond to what we are sent. Our personal view or frame of mind determines what we value about the experiences that we have. Accepting things as they come with an attitude of gratitude usually means that we’re easy going, and are also thankful for the good AND the not-so-good, but fighting to get what we want doesn’t have to mean that we are greedy or ungrateful. The former is about being contented, whilst the latter is about being ambitious.
Some things that LIFE throws at us are easier to deal with than others, so sometimes we have to fight in order to get the outcomes that we want. That’s LIFE!
Is it better to take whatever LIFE sends your way, or should we fight to get what we want out of it?
