Can LIFE be a Perfect curve?


What is Life?

Life is about breathing each moment. As long as we are breathing, we are ALIVE.

Since, we are alive, we should be doing something meaningful EVERYDAY.

What is it about?

Life is about learning a new thing or doing a good deed.

When a baby is born. He learns to walk by falling and hurting himself. Nothing comes for FREE. The baby will learn to ride a bike by falling numerous times. He will cry umpteen times and the amount of salt lost in his precious tears will be priceless but, in order to learn the basic traits of survival, all children go through that cycle.

Gradually, this baby grows up and will overcome many challenges such as learning to read, write, and many other basic survival traits. He will fall and cry and fuss. This is nothing unusual since all humans go through that and so shall he.

Define a Perfect Life

The definition of perfect varies from person to person.

Some would define a perfect life, which has no hurdles and everything is going smoothly. What they desire in life, they should get it instantly.

While some would define a perfect life as ups and downs. They would experience success/happiness in their lives and then sorrow. The chain of sorrow and happiness would go on and they would say their life is perfect since it taught them many things on the way.

What's a Perfect curve?

This curve depends on the definition of your perfect life. Statistically, how well your definition of life has been able to do justice to you and your needs.

Can Life be a perfect curve?

I am pretty sure, All Men want their life to have a perfect curve.

But, do they get it?

No, not instantly but eventually!


This could be related to our Karma's.

A recent hub, My Karma will walk you through about it.

Ponder on the below...

We are humans who make mistakes and it is acceptable. As long as we are learning from our mistakes and choosing a path for the betterment of other men and our society. We will be able to gain good karma points and eventually get a life which will be a perfect curve.

Awareness towards getting a life with a perfect curve could help us score points in this lifetime so that we could enjoy the fruits of it, in our next lifetime.

Question about: IS there life after this current life, is a totally new topic.

But, Man sure does re-incarnate and what we sow today will be reaped by us either tomorrow or in our next lifetime.

Thus, LIFE can be a Perfect Curve. Now, the timing is not critical here since; some will get it soon or some might take years.

Let's think of our next move and make the right choices to attain a life of what we DESIRE!

Question:-Is there anyone whose life has been a perfect curve?

That depends on how the person has analyzed his success and failures and if he has learnt any lessons from them. A perfect curve is individually analyzed thus, it's success rate depends on person to person.

There is no age limit to sit back and analyze one's life. As they say that learning anything is never too late. So, start pondering over your past so that you could learn something from your mistakes and try to make your future a better place.

Loved it, Ruchira. Those who believe in instant happiness, I feel they are always in search of short cuts. Life is not a short cut so ups and downs are must in life.Life has taught me a lot and I am thankful for that.

With each article you write, it is apparent that you are full of grace and you walk in. I love the personal growth opportunities in each hub you write. This is another outstanding example. The curve suggests happiness can be obtained when we "bend" a little with life. Excellent!

Enjoyed the way you answered the question that inspired this hub and found your words inspiring.

The thing you said that most followed my own beliefs was, "The chain of sorrow and happiness would go on and they would say their life is perfect since it taught them many things on the way."

Sometimes things that feel sorrowful at the time they occur can end up changing the course of our lives by helping us find our true purpose and/or passion.

Voted up across the board except for funny.

I know that I will not achieve perfection. I gave that up a long time ago because it was too much pressure for me. I avoided doing some things entirely because I knew I couldn't "do" them perfectly so I never even tried.

I've come to realize that I won't appreciate the blessings if I don't have something to compare it to. There are always going to be highs and lows in my life but it is in how I react that allows me to remain serene as I walk through the challenges.

I appreciate life these days. That's not always been the case for me. So, I am grateful. Very interesting hub! Thank you for sharing.

Life is the journey, not the destination. Therefore, I seek no particular goal nor to reach any particular destination. Enjoy the present moment. Occasionally, I like to watch myself going through life as a third party impartial spectator.

In addition to liking this hub, I liked one of your comments..."Sure, life has taught us so many things that our soul will be polished for the next one..." I think that many of our souls get a good "polishing" in this life. Hopefully they shine in the next one! Up votes and SHARED.

I am a firm believer that if you are not tested in life with a little bit of bad, that you will never truly appreciate the good that life also has to offer. That being said, there are times that I have had so much bad going on, I couldn't understand what I did wrong to put me in this position. But it has made me stronger and made me realize how much more important the good times are!

"The baby will learn to ride a bike by falling numerous times."

This is so true... literally and in abstract ways! What a great hub!

For me a perfect life is one in which we learn from our mistakes and stand up to ourselves and our goals...

Perfection won't be defined in the absence of mistakes...

After all " Its human to err!"

A perfect hub! :)

Great hub, interesting and insightful. Voted up. Deep thoughts on life - accepting our life as it is and looking at life positively can make our life perfect and happy.God gives us what is good for us but it is not always what me want sometimes - difficult to accept though.

Life is bound to be ups & downs but one has to go on doing his karma. The definition of a perfect curve in my opinion is if one learns from his mistakes and turns them to better his life and of those around him. This way his karma would become a good karma leading him on to greater heights in the next life.

This sure is food for thought.

Voted up and all across the way.

Well said BBG28, IF life would have been a smooth ride, we would be very destructive. But, it's the ups and downs in life, which make us realize how important it is to us and to the ones we love. Thank you for your enlightening comment.

Agreed Rahul. To err is human and if we do not make mistakes how will we learn. But, to make mistakes and then getting up from it is bravery! Wishing you the best, my friend!

Well said Vellur. We desire many things but, our karma and our destiny needs something else so, let's not fret of not being able to attain it but, let's be merry. thanks for stopping by with your valuable feedback.

A very good and thought provoking hub. I totally agree. What you sow is what you reap. If you do good to others, then God will reward you for it.

In order to achieve success, you have to take many risks. And taking risks sometimes means that you will fail and risk getting ridiculed by others. There will be stops and detours, but if you keep working hard in the direction of your goals, you will ultimately achieve success. This is the principle that I live by and has produced results for me. Now, those people who brag about how their life is so perfect are plain and simply lying. They just use the fake it till you make it approach and try to make the best if it when life throws them lemons.
