Journey called Life... (Part 10 : If)

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or, being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with wornout tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on";

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run -
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man my son!

~Rudyard Kipling~

Nice poem right?

hmm... if is a word of hope, a word for wished and word for despair as well...

if only i did ...
if i do this then...

I had lived a life with no regret. The concept of "if" is just an illusion to comfort yourself if something bad happens. Throw it away, face the truth face on. What had happened had happened, there is not way to turn back time to once upon a time...

Don't get yourself stuck in the past, move on... I'm sure the best way to remedy mistakes is to move forward...

Now to "if" i am to do this and that... Well, if we think too much, nothing can be done. Risks are to be taken and the results are to be reaped. Time will go by whether we like it or not... If you want to do anything, like tell something to someone, just do it. thinking too much about the results will lead you nowhere...

Now if only our life were....
