I was a little bored that I decided to go through some random blogs. What do I mean by 'random'?? Random here means blogs by people whom I don't know at all in real and maybe one or two by those people I knew... Reading blogs by people you don't know at all is fun.. Knowing part and parcel of their lives, how they deal with stuffs... and so on...

One of those blogs I went through this time caught my sight deeply... It was all about her perspective and perseverance in the winning battle against heavy issues in life... Of course the author was a SHE unless you did not realise me using ‘her’ in my previous sentence... Her blog was simply awesome... Not too far... A Malaysian too... She stated one of her real life incidents and the conclusion was there too... According to the author,
the most important thing is to accept where we are, our current situation or whatever that we are going through at the moment and then to seek some evidence to change our perspective...


I feel this is one important statement that we all should look into... Reflecting back at our lives, of course all of us will agree how much we’ve changed... maybe in a good way or vice versa... If we’ve changed into a negative way... all we have to ask ourselves is just one simple question: Is there a wiser, more enlightened way of looking at this seemingly negative situation??? Yes, the only solution is to change our perspectives... For instance, when you walk around KL, you’ll be astonished and the first thing to come up your mind is, ‘OMG!! Look at how big KL is!!!’ What happens if you look at KL from an aeroplane flying high up the sky... All you might see is a dot or maybe nothing... This is exactly what I am trying to say... Look at it from a different perspective and even huge problems would seem to be like a tiny dot... What happens if you look from the outerspace??? Do you think you can even see Malaysia?? Hell no... This is a clear example of how problems can shrink as you look at them from a different perspective... Just learn to switch perspectives... And beware of the words you use... Remember!! You can use your words to build someone or kill that same someone... Make a promise that you’ll use words only to build people and not kill them.. I SAID MAKE!! NOW!!! Haha..

And yeah.... I am not a counsellor, a philosopher or the wisest guy on earth to share all this with you... haha... I have to state this because a few days ago, one of my INTEC friends asked me, ‘Hey Vinod, can you suggest me a way to release stress?’ I was like, “why on earth are you asking me??” She said, ‘you seem to be like a professional’... No way... I am just ‚a common guy‘... ‘ein allgemeiner Kerl’ in deutsch, unnai pol oruvan in tamil.... LOL... All I am doing is trying to sum things up and spread some useful messages that I obtain from people and daily experience...

Sometimes, changes hurt... When they do, all of us or maybe I tend to look back at how my life has changed and wonder if I can ever get back... However, I am clear of one thing now... It’s not about looking back or forward... It’s not about searching for the rewind button... It’s all about living this particular second and making it a useful one... it’s about loving people around you and making everyone happy, it’s about being humble and burying the hatchet with our enemies... Hence, if some people out there tend to have misunderstandings with me, let’s solve it as soon as possible... I am sure there would be at least one person... haha... Let’s not brag it further... What’s the point in doing so?? Without you cooperation, I can’t change things...

And yeah... Sometimes, when I read blogs of certain people, I tend to respect them more.... For example, the blog I mentioned earlier. I respect her without her knowledge... haha... And yeah, there is another guy... I happen to respect him more and more as I read his blog... Reading another person’s blog is fun... you get to learn a lot and live life in a better way or at least change your perceptions on life....

P.S: Don’t do it often... It’s a waste of time... haha

Peace Out ;-)
