Can you see anything wrong with the photograph which I took recently? Yes, it is the rainbow. Even a rainbow has its bad day. There was no connectivity at all. It felt so lost. Where is the other half? What has happened to the full life of the rainbow? Mother Nature is supposed to make its life complete but why are there hiccups here? It has proven here that nothing will stay complete at all times. So is life!

Life has always been filled with mysteries and incompleteness. Everyday, we are seeking for more and more things to fill up our lives. Some seek companionships. Some seek monetary benefits. Some seek success. Some seek healthiness. Some seek career. Generally, most of us have something in common, that is we are always seeking for true happiness in life. How near are you towards your destination for true happiness? What are the success rate with what you have and what you have done in your life? Are you happy now or are you as lost as the rainbow?

Everyone have dreams in life. Making that dream become a reality lies in our efforts to make it come true. Do you have the courage and determination to strive for the best in your life? Will you give up just because of a few failures? Are you motivated enough to push yourself to go beyond your limits? The question marks will go on and on without an end if a person does not have a periodical timetable to assess his life.

Life is never like your computer OS (operating system) that you can reset and go back (restore point) to when there is a breakdown. There will be no turning back. It is always a straight path in your life journey. In that life system, there will be never ending of threats (virus, spyware, grayware) all the way. It is a matter of how well you maintain your virtues and philosophy in life (anti-virus, firewall) in order to find a solution to them. There are times where there will be some bad habits (unwanted files) which you will need to clear up (recycle bin) frequently to make sure your life run smoother. It may take some time to clear off as habits are not accumulated within a day. They gathered over many years of ignorance (unused programs, fonts, cookies, cache memory) and thus causing the outburst of the present side effects (slowness, system hang). Alternative solutions (disk cleanup) are needed as remedies to the problem. Constant monitoring (disk defragmenter) of your life system will surely help a lot. Haha… I sounded so technical here but it is the way how life is too.

There was an old saying stating that there will be a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. Even though this statement was to be true, what will be your chances of making it to the pot of gold with how your life is now? Are you comfortable with it or do you feel that it is still incomplete towards your goals in life? Please do share your views here.

You can listen and watch to one of my favorite anime while sitting down and analyzing your life now. Have a great week ahead!

(featuring clips from Japanese anime - Oh My Goddess)

Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high,
There's a land that I heard of, once in a lullaby.

Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue,
And the dreams that you dare to dream, really do come true.

Someday I'll wish upon a star, and wake up where the clouds are far behind me.
Where troubles melt like lemon drops, away above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me.

Somewhere over the rainbow, bluebirds fly.
Birds fly over the rainbow, why then, oh why can't I?
If happy little bluebirds fly above the rainbow, why, oh why can't I?
