Life is Right or Left…

Go towards your Left.. Oh wait, I meant the other left.. whatever!!

Every single time when someone approach me for direction, I become super excited as if they are going to hand over a trophy if I tell right direction about going left. But to my no surprise, I end up goofing up Left with Right and vice versa. Thankfully my hands point to the right direction (thereby securing at-least the consolation prize :P)
After every fail attempt I laugh at myself and cherish similar incidents of past and console myself by saying “That’s OK even my dad used to do the same”.

It never occurred to me until today that this is unusual, which need a fix rather than ignoring or putting it on my father.
Thanks to my mentor for bringing this up. For the first time, I gave a thought about it and did some digging online keeping my fingers crossed to see if it is a psychological, neurological or IQ issue to say the least. Apparently, the left-right confusion or the phenomenon, is quite common and not a problem to be concerned about. There are various test available online to confirm where we stand with respect to this confusion. Though there is no remedy but by keeping calm, avoiding stress and most importantly by not thinking about the prize while assisting others with the direction will surely help in getting right direction about left.

 

Life is a maze

One fine day, while I was studying my father came and surprised me with a gift. It was a tiny book with an interesting subject line “Who moved my cheese” by Dr Spencer Johnson.

Considering it to be a storybook, I decided to give a shot; but to my surprise, it taught me some important lessons of the lifetime. This amusing and enlightening book was more powerful than I could even think of. Many circumstances since then have proved me over and again that:

Life is no straight and easy corridor along
Which we travel free and unhampered,
But a maze of passages,
Through which we must seek our way,
Lost and confused, now and again
Checked in a blind alley.

But always, if we have faith,
A door will open for us,
Not perhaps one that we ourselves
Would ever have thought of,
But one that will ultimately
Prove good for us
