Just finished dinner early today ... I was watching a movie 'Parenthood' ... didn't really get the jist of the movie .. had just stopped while flipping channels.... one particular scene made an impression ....
A couple in their drawing room ... arguing about something (don't know what exactly ... as I said just ended up watching that ) ... the man more of a pessimist ; was arguing about their life or their children's life (don't know ) ... he was emphasizing on 'what a mess ' it was .... he says ' there will be so many times when they will not achieve what they want ' .. to this the woman says 'and there will be so many times when they will '
Amidst this the man's grandmother enters ... a really old woman with spirits as young as could be !
Seeing them argue she says this :
' It amuses me as to how a roller coaster ride can scare me so much ... can fill me with excitement , make me afraid and thrilled all at the same time ! ... I remember when I went for a roller coaster ride ... It was fun ! Many were afraid ... so they chose the Mary -go -round ... it just goes around ... but I choose the roller coaster .... not very predictable ... but hence thrilling and fun .. ! I like roller coasters !!! '
So true ... maybe I'm not able to appreciate the uncertainties in my life ... but that is why its fun .... if I am not happy with something ... I look up to things being better ... that is because I know it is uncertain and will change for the better ... maybe worse one time ... but then better the next time .. !!
I agree my life's not as pleasant as I want it to be at present ... but behold yourself people .... ADVENTURE AWAITS !!!!
