Seasons of Life.
October 11, 2010 § 10 Comments
There is a generality in the mannerism in which we live our day-to-day lives here on earth. There are sunny days, gloomy days and sometimes you’re just so indifferent with virtually every decision or action you take.
These Seasons come along with how you develop them and grow with them. Depending on what you do and how you do it, you can make a single day a happy day with lots of golden memories to keep and share a life long time while that same day can end up a very miserable one.
However, there are two types of factors which influence the way these Seasons fluctuate. These factors are some how interwoven. Firstly, you have the Direct Influence Aspects (D.I.A), which deal with the individual and his actions, both intentional and non-intentional and secondly, you have the External Influence Aspects (E.I.A), which obviously deal with environmental aspects such as family, peers and everything external to the individual. What we must understand is that Man in all possible ways will seek for means to get a happy life. Joy and Peace are the best fruits of achieving a happy life, no matter your status in the society. Some will rather sacrifice a thing or two just to get happy while others may even get to extremes of doing right or wrong just to get happy.
The D.I.A is the most important in our lives because we have full access and control over it. With our behaviour patterns, actions and decisions, we shape how our lives turn out to be. We give it a route to follow. You want it good, you will get it and the same goes vice-versa. But then, this is the part of life which faces the greatest challenges of both factors. A slight error in whatever decision or action you take can become very fatal to your personality and life stand. You may fall into severe depressions and live the rest of your life regretting the action you took. We therefore must uphold this aspect with great degrees of importance.
The E.I.A is all about how the environment influences our behaviour, actions and decisions. We must also note here that we Humans are not islands and can never stand alone in a society. We are born into a society and must interact with our environment (society) in order to survive. These factors have a range of elements ranging from your family background, your peers, your life partners, etc. However their influence on you the individual all depends on whether you flow with its changing winds of time and space or you stand your ground in certain areas. Its influence therefore isn’t so direct as the above because you decide whether or not to accept its influence. You also cannot avoid its existence.
A lot more can be said about those aspects. But briefly said, you can of course make meaning of what these Seasons are and how you can control and change them. Life at any times can become difficult same as it can become easy. Good or Bad, they are Seasons of life. It all depends on how you take on life and adjust to its seasons.
