Life is not a gamble

gamble

Life is a play. Play it wisely and smartly. It is not for gambling with high hopes of success and treasure.

Life’s for living happily and it is in our own way of thinking what is happiness. Real happiness is in living a simple life and making others also feel happy with your acts. It is not in pursuing gamble and risking the very purpose of life to achieve greedy and unrealistic goals.

Life is to face problems and solve them. It is not to evade responsibilities and seek refuge from challenges. Life requires much perseverance, determination and endurance.

Know the purpose of your life, set some achievable goals and pursue them without indulging in gamble. Do not get discouraged by failures or distractions. Continue your efforts like the spider that spins a web inspite of so many falls. Success will be there waiting for you.

Creativity Carnival “Inspiration”

Shafali at Creativity Carnival, either draws sketches  or creates caricatures each week on Fridays, and asks the readers to respond to it by creating some posts, essays, short stories, poems or doodles.

This week’s prompt is a drawing of the ill-tempered Eve attempting to eat the forbidden fruit as seen from the caricature inserted below. You can view the full details of this challenge at this link titled “Creativity Carnival – Inspiration“.

Eve with apple

Inspiration is a kind of stimulation or feeling from within your soul, an innate urge to do something creative or useful generally for the betterment of life.

The urge to do something can be the result of seeing or watching something appealing to you from people around you or the incidents and circumstances around you. But getting inspired is generally positive in nature. Inspiration is attributed to positive thoughts only. Anything negative and destructive is not referred to as being the result of inspiration.

In the above caricature, on first glance, one will be looking at the act of eating the forbidden fruit by that ugly minded ( instigated by the satanic serpent) woman known as Eve. But if you look carefully, you can see other positive inspiring things also. There is the fallen apple, the sketch pencil, the feather and ink pot, etc.

So, instead of getting drawn by the evil thoughts and the ugly nature of things, you can look at it positively and appreciate the skills with which the figure has been created and get yourself inspired to draw wonderful drawings using the pencil, feather, ink.

If you are of research mentality like Sir Isaac Newton, you can analyse why the apple fell on ground instead of hanging in air and what are causes and the effects of it.

In our daily life, we can get so much inspiration by watching people or events and from the wonderful nature if we are positive enough to receive the signals. So one should be always positive and keep himself ever ready to receive the inspiring signals.
