Think about it

I came across a few photographs taken during a visit to an exhibition in Abu Dhabi a year back. The exhibition was to showcase the current and future developments planned for the real estate sector in UAE in general and Abu Dhabi in particular. 
They also showcased something they are passionate about. The mighty bird of prey and the fastest machine in the track. Focusing on the objects of desires I got drifted away into reflecting into LIFE.
We put a great deal of emphasis on our desires and chase designers' clothes, branded watches, exotic jewellery, other expensive hobbies. At times we get very selective about  our likings and disliking. We seem to forget that we got this opportunity to lead a healthy and peaceful life which is a priceless present in todays world when we look around and compare us with the less fortunates!! Are we doing justice to this gift!
Think about it ......





If you look at what you do not have in life, you don't have anything,   
If you look at what you have in life, you have everything.






Life is like having a cup of coffee. You sit by the window, lift the cup, take a careless sip and find no sugar. Too lazy to go for the sugar, you somehow manage with that sugarless cup. On finishing you discover undissolved sugar crystals settled at the bottom. That is how life is.... We do not make any effort to value what is around us. So look around, may be the sweetness you are looking is closer than you think....

    I should have mentioned that those are somebody else's quotes. I wish I could compose my thoughts so well!
