Whether you take it seriously with a stiff upper lip or take it as a joke or treat it with indifference, the truth remains that you are not going to get out it, alive. If you can enjoy l ife and let others enjoy their life, with your attitude, whatever it may be, thats as fine as it can get. Some one said that the greatest tragedy is to stand at the end of it and to know that it was wasted.
Do you think that a fully blossomed flower or a beautiful butterfly treat their life as a joke? Not taking it as a joke doesn't mean trying to get through life as though one was in an ICU.

Overall life and its relationships are to be taken seriously. Cannot take it lightly all the time as it would lose meaning.

Yes.Billions of people Lived and passed.
Time mercilessly moves faster.
Still I could not come out from the thought of my youth days.
Why should we waste time taking lifes happening seriously.
I feel the beauty of each moment much more often than before.
Even if Im depressed, or Im in pain, or its raining heavily right onto my head.
I feel the life brighter.
There was time when I thought just let it pass quicklier,
but now I realize how foolish it was.
Life is so short, unpredictably short.
No moment should be lost, and no moment should be underestimated, for time is the greatest treasure we have, and it shouldnt be squandered.

Life itself is a wonderful thing. From physical aspect it is complicated gadget systems with so much of integrated circuit of nerves. Who weaved it? Do we know?

Secondly, the expanse of the thoughts itself so makes us speechless. In stead of quantitative outlook we can look at it in a qualitative way. Big, small. long, short do not matter. The great wonders matter only. If quality is backed up by quantity, nothing can be better.

Yes, my motto is to always have fun but don't hurt anyone because this life is too short to ruin it for another person. But, I also know that I will have everlasting life in the coolest place of all, heaven, and that makes me take this life all the more serious. I take life very seriously when I have to, and when I do not have to, I enjoy laughing it up and having fun. It is a balance between the two I think that makes life interesting and also allows me to learn and have a good profession and also enjoy myself...!
