Age.

It is just a number. Not only when it is greater than a numerical value, but also whatever its value is.

But, it is a qualifying number, no less. Of course it is not the only or the most important qualifying variable in a set of variables. But it does have a value to be taken into account in evaluating the equation.

And wishing the number to be something else than what it is, isn't going to be helpful in living well.

Illness.

We all have to endure some kind of illness, at sometime. It is inevitable. The world is too complicated a place to hope to be immune against unknown, invisible enemies.

But, once we are infected, we struggle and fight back, thanks to our all-intelligent immune system, and after a period of enduring, we come out stronger than before.

And isn't that, basically, the plot of our whole life?

Imagination.

We dream up things. We envision stuff. We see what we want before they are real, in the mind's eye.

Without the power to imagine, we would be locked inside the prison of our surroundings, guarded by our habits.

But with imagination, we get what we want and evolve.

We learn from every little thing. No matter how trivial or irrelevant the stuff seems to be.

We learn by doing something wrong; we learn by doing it right the next time; we learn by learning from others.

Maybe we are stuck in our ways, right now. The big picture is not clear yet, but the silver lining is that no one else can see the future too.

I guess we are all rocking the same boat, isn't it?

Little wins.

We can never win the big one right away. No one can.

We must go through the little wins. They don't matter much on the large scheme of things, but they do. Very much.

Enjoy them or forever remain in the shadow of the Big Mountain.

Time.

We think it is in abundance. It is really not.

Every second, every minute passes by, is forever lost to the past. Long gone. Never to be relived as the present ever again.

If only we were aware of this obvious fact, every moment..
