Life is a Cocktail

Updated on March 22, 2011

What is life without...

What is life without the colours of the rainbow to remind us how wonderful it is to be part of creation?

What is life without family to hold us close and comfort us when the odds are not in our favour?

What is life without that special friend (if we find one) to hold our hands and tell us “you have a friend in me for life?"

What is life without the love for humanity to overcome all barriers of hate and antagonism?

What is life without a smile on our lips to light up a room and make someone’s troubles fade away?

What is life without laughter to wish our worries and burdens away?

What is life without tears of sorrow to remind us that roses no matter how beautiful, have thorns and so is life, it does not come without pain?

What is life without tears of joy running down our cheeks to remind us that life is not that bad because there is always sunshine after rain?

What is life without the cries of a woman in labour to remind us that the birth of a child is a sign of a new beginning?

What is life without death to remind us of our fragile human existence and how short our time on earth is?

What is life without hardship to remind us that life is a struggle, but if we persevere, we will succeed.

What is life without success to remind us that all our efforts have never and will never be in vain?

What is life without competition to remind us that it’s a rat race and we are all aiming for the finishing line?

What is life without the sound of music, to remind us that it nourishes us and can be food for a broken  soul?

What is life without a job to offer you security and hope in these times of recession?

What is life without a roof over our heads and clothes on our back, to shield us from the wrath of nature?

What is life without an education, in the classroom or out of it, to prepare us for the lessons that life has to offer?

What is life without a silent prayer to remind us to be thankful and not complain that our bread is not buttered everyday?

What is life without the sound of the ticking clock to remind us all is not lost because we live to fight another day?

What is life without positive thinking to spur us on and show us that there is indeed light at the end of the tunnel.

What is life if we can't live it with purpose, meaning and gratitude.

Life is a cocktail of everything good and bad, but there is always hope for the living. Don't give up on life, live life, love life.
