Life by The Window Seat : WOW with #Blogadda




In this journey called life we have all been given prime seats. Each of us has a window seat allotted to us and us alone. A window seat to life.

We spend a lifetime seated in our window seat, looking out at the world. Enjoying the view, grumbling about it, wanting to change it, or maybe cursing it too. Some even pull down the shades. Maybe the sun shining down on them is too harsh, or they are bored with the view. Or maybe they do not like what they see.

Nonetheless, the window seat is ours, for life. You could excuse yourself from it all for a while but eventually you have to return to your own window seat.

Thoughts, emotions, feelings, longing, all flit through you as the view from the window seat shows you changing scenarios. You see a barren land? How about planting some trees. Trees work towards giving you shade too, from the hot sun. The very sun that shone down brightly, or too brightly perhaps, on you so that you had to pull down the shades.

What else has your window seat shown you? A mob of people fighting and screaming? Vow never to become one of those people. Ever. When not so pleasant thoughts make their way into your mind, pause, think how it would make you feel to be at the receiving end. And flip your thoughts with kindness facing up.

When the day bids goodbye and welcomes the night your view turns charcoal. Until tiny pinpricks of light begin appearing. You do realise that things look different in the dark. While your eyes adjust to the night, light appears in various forms, helping you to see. Better, or not? Your view, your sight and you decide.

Just when you begin wondering if this dark night would ever end, the sun begins to rise, shedding light on a world that looks magical once again.

So what it is that you’ve been seeing? What you saw, or what was shown to you? Your perspective or someone else’s?

In this journey called life we have all been given prime seats. Each of us has a window seat allotted to us and us alone. A window seat to life.

  1. Beautiful post – in the journey of Life we have a prime seat I lived this line the most. how true, we see things happening outside from our life’s window but don’t react thinking what’s in for me?
    Thought provoking post.
