    Bad Luck ... Or Blessing in Disguise?

    There was a woman who was in such a hurry to go to the airport. She told the cab driver to step on it. She was so engrossed with her own thoughts that she was not aware they were going on a different route.
    Suddenly, a man went inside the cab and took her handbag where she placed her visa, passport, and all her money for the trip.
    The driver, who was in cahoots with the robber, left her in the middle of that dark street. She cursed the world for being so mean to her, and she kept on thinking how unlucky she was to be in that situation.
    That very same night, she heard shocking news. Tears flowed down her face. Flight 230 has crashed! It was the plane where she was supposed to board into. If she has not lost her precious belongings, she could have lost something far more important - her life!
    Sometimes bad things really happen. We lost our money, failed our exams, or get rejected by others. There are times when nothing seems to go our way.
    So what do we do about it? Are we going to be disappointed? The answer is a resounding "No!" We must take all these frustrations out of our chest and start all over again with the consistent faith that we will get what we deserved.
    So what if you failed the exams? Maybe you'd be more successful and much happier in another field. You were rejected by your boyfriend/girlfriend? There are plenty of others out there who are much better and who are much more deserving of your love and affection.
    Don't waste your time and energy on things that can't be changed. Continuous worrying will only affect your health on the long run, and you'd be doing much more damage than what was previously done.
    Set yourself free. Move onwards with the conviction of a winner.
    What if we turn the tables around? What if you never ran out of good luck?
    There was this man who won the lottery. He thought he was the luckiest person in the world. He became greedy and wasted all his money on everything he could get his hands on.
    One day, he made it on the front page of the newspaper again. But this time, it was a different story. He was killed because of his riches.
    If you attain good luck, never be too secure about it either. Pray for protection and guidance. Life is so unpredictable. You just won't know what will happen next.
    Live one day at a time. Sometimes we subject ourselves to unnecessary mental and emotional torture. We ask ourselves, "What if I don't get this done in time?" or "What if my family leaves me and I've got no one else to turn to?"
    Work at the present moment. Do what must be done at present and the future will turn out just fine. Believe me. And believe in yourself. As Captain Planet always says: "The power is yours

    HI Vinoran,
    i am new here..nice to read ur rarlier posts:2thumbsup:
    After reading ur post I was reminded of one incident...I had gone to immerse the ashes of my grandmother-in -law alongwith my husband at Haridwar .After all rituals were over in the day we again went in the evening to the river bank
    Like many others we also purchased a diva in leaf basket & immersed in the fast flowing water at sunset.It was a very pretty site with so many divas in the darkened water...I immersed my diva very carefully in the water ..but after a few seconds my diva had vanished from my sight..the fast flowing water had carried it away
    then the realisation struck that our lives are like the flowing water...divas r tiny hurts,incidents,pleasures,anything...which will stay with us for a very short period of time..the river of life will carry it away..poof ..try as hard as we want the river will flow.......
    Now whenever I have sad feelings..I picture myself with diya surrendering to GOD

    he may take it wherever he pleases..it is now in his hands..& I am much more relaxed as the matter is now beyond my control
