The Other Side of Things

It often happens that we keep going in one direction, without looking around us. it is then that we are faced with a dead end; that makes us feel miserable and worthless. It's on that exact moment that we must not give up. This is the exact time when you need to pull yourself up, look at the positive side, and start looking around. Look around because there's always something good awaiting for you. Look around because there's always light at the end of the tunnel. What may seem a dead end, may just be a really narrow turning to a wide valley; it's only a matter of perspective. Look up and look forward, so you can grow from the miseries and smile up to the world, to face the worst, and be determined to reach your destination. 
Try a new approach,  a different way to get through to your goal. May be there's something better on the other side. For sure there will be... there always is. 
Here's a beautiful short story that I came across; it's worth a read.
  A Father was reading a magazine and his little daughter every now and then distracted him. To keep her busy, he tore one page on which was printed the map of the world. He tore it into pieces and asked her to go to her room and put them together to make the map again.
He was sure she would take the whole day to get it done. But the little one came back within minutes with perfect map……When he asked how she could do it so quickly, she said, “Oh…. Dad, there is a man’s face on the other side of the paper….. I made the face perfect to get the map right." She ran outside to play leaving the father surprised.


There is always the other side to whatever you experience in this world. Whenever we come across a challenge or a puzzling situation, look at the other side…. You will be surprised to see an easy way to tackle the problem.
