View: A 100 Word Story

“And the outside view was just extraordinary,” she finished her rant finally.

“So, you really enjoyed it, didn’t you?”

“I loved it immensely.”

“It is good that you watched this week’s episode because I know it would have caused you enormous pain if you had missed it,” he said giving a wicked smile.

She didn’t get the sarcasm in his words, “That is true: I wouldn’t have missed viewing this episode for anything in the world since it is not everyday, after all, that my favorite travelers’ show telecast such a masterpiece featuring the best hotel room in the world.”

Ideal Life

Life is the perfect imbalance between what we know is truth and what we hope should have been a truth.

Isn’t it so? Life is about living… Life is about viewing life with your own eyes.

L– Look

I– Instantly

F– For

E– Extraordinary

Who doesn’t want perfection in one’s life? Who doesn’t want that sense of relief in living life in one’s own way? Who doesn’t want their life to be extraordinary?

Every one wants this. And there is nothing wrong about it. Life is about such things only. Life is about perfection… Life is about making life extraordinary.

So many articles, essays and books define the concept of ideal life. But is it of any benefit? No, because every one have in their mind a perception of their own ideal life. One’s ideal life is not similar to the person sitting next to him. So what does that mean? That means the same thing- always look for the extraordinary and achieve your ideal life. It is indeed the most difficult task to do. Why? Because of the habits, because of the life one is continually leading, be it closer to ideal or not ideal at all. Habits are the most difficult things to change. They are like the rust on the iron, which can only be subdued with a new coating on the iron. So what do you need to do? Get that coating of life over the habits of your life. Believe so much in your concept of your ideal life that it becomes difficult for you at any cost to not believe it. This craving for the ideal life… for that extraordinary touch in life must go on against all odds. It is necessary because it is the way to the happiness that is most precious to most beings.

But I ain’t saying that achieving that ideal life would free you of all your sad moments.. bring you eternity of happiness. I never believe so, never would I say so because then the whole concept would be false. A human’s mind when gets one happy moment strives for another happy moment, that too even more happier than the earlier one. That is the reason no one in their right form can ever achieve an eternity of happiness.

Still, something is better than nothing. Isn’t it? Even that ideal life would be ideal for you in the end despite of all happiness and gloominess. Life is about living and achieving that ideal word before it. It is true.. I know that and you will know that as well.

L– Look out

I– Instantly and continuously

F– For that special

E– Extraordinary and ideal life
