|The large Christmas tree at Wafi Mall, Dubai|
Before going over the general happenings in my life, I would like to wish all readers of this blog a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I hope 2013 will be a brilliant year for all of us... may God bless us all!
And that's where I'd like to bring in the explanation of this post's title. I mentioned a similar thing in one of my first posts, back in 2009... that Life is just like a roller coaster, with all its constant ups and downs and all that. And I guess my opinion on that has still not changed, since that's one of the simplest analogies that comes to my mind when I think of the word 'Life'. I admit it sounds like too simple an analogy, but it is a very direct one.
To end this post, here's coming back to my initial point: Unpredictability of life. It can be a very exciting thing, if what comes in your way are 'pleasant surprises'. If 'big shocks' or even 'bad news' come in your way, then it suddenly turns into something very inconvenient. But whatever happens, one should learn to adapt to the circumstances and quickly think what's ahead.
It may not be an easy opinion to apply, and this is indeed one of my biggest weaknesses in fact! But writing such posts helps me reflect on myself, and I am slowly working on this trait of mine, by finding my own 'coping mechanisms' (be it music, movies or literature).
On that note, let's go ahead and welcome 2013 with open arms! May good times come to all of us! :-)
