Time is the one thing that comes to everyone, both in good phases and bad. The Rises and Falls in life are the essence that completes us an individuals. But how we choose to live through these times is up to us.
How to Live Through Good Times and Bad times
Living through both good and bad times is a fundamental aspect of life. It requires resilience, adaptability, and a balanced approach to navigate the various ups and downs.
Good times of life
Good times are appreciative and welcoming. During these times, we shine, grow, enjoy, and make beautiful memories. However, it is important to remember that good times do not last forever. We should respect and be grateful for good times but not take them for granted.
Here is an example of someone who lives through good times in a meaningful way:
Dr. Ramanna Rao is a consultant physician and cardiologist who operates a free rural clinic at T Begur village near Bangalore. He started the clinic on the very next day after he completed his MBBS, and he has been running it every Sunday since then. Dr. Rao believes that his true triumph lies in the service that he gives through the Village Clinic. Dr. Abdul Kalam National Award (for rural medical service) in 2008 and the Padma Shri (for contribution to the field of medicine) in 2010 were awards of Dr. Rao.
Apart from this medical service, he has also adopted 50 schools in the nearby villages where he distributes free books and uniforms to needy students.
Bad Times/ Dark Phases of Life
Bad times are often unwelcoming. An individual experiences a lot of pain, guilt and helplessness in this phase of life. But bad times can be the best time for growth and learning. When faced with challenges, we have the opportunity to learn and become stronger. A true warrior understands and respects the time it has.
The world also Acknowledges, Learns and Remembers the one who understands and respects TIME.
Here is an example of someone who lived through bad times with strength and courage. A very strong lady who was born with a tough life but made her life shine via her actions.
SINDHU TAI , Popularly known as Mother of all Orphans. She was an Indian social worker and social activist known particularly for her work in raising orphaned children in India.
An unwanted child, known as Chindi (a torn piece of cloth) by her family. At the age of 12, she married and within a short period, she was kicked off by her husband during the time of pregnancy. She suffered pain, was tortured and was left alone by her own family. She slept in the crematorium as she found that was the safest place for her to stay. Her livelihood was little income from singing songs at the railway station.
It was during her experience of poverty, and homelessness she realized that there are so many helpless orphans who were ignored by society and that changed her way of looking at life.
Sindhutai would work wholeheartedly for orphans destitute and other less fortunate. She poured out her motherly love and affection on orphans. Tai sheltered them under her wings and gave them food in whatever way she could. Lovingly they call her Aai. She has opened up many schools and orphanages for the well-being of the children
Sindhutai Sapkal received around 270 awards from various national and international organizations. A Marathi film “Mee Sindhutai Sapkal” released as a biopic in 2010.
The Art of Giving and Sharing
Both Dr. Ramanna Rao and Sindhutai Sapkal are examples of people who lived their lives through the art of giving and sharing. They both used their time and talents to help others, and they both made a lasting impact on the world.
We can all learn from the example of these two individuals. When we give and share, we make the world a better place. We also benefit ourselves by connecting with others and feeling good about ourselves.
Here are some ways that we can all give and share:
- Share knowledge We can share our knowledge with others by teaching, mentoring, or simply being a good listener.
- Share help and support We can help others in need by volunteering our time, donating to charity, or simply lending a helping hand.
- Share affinity, respect, and oneness We can create a sense of community by being kind and compassionate to others. We can also show our respect for others by listening to them and valuing their opinions.
The art of giving and sharing is a simple but powerful way to live a meaningful life. When we give and share, we make the world a better place, and we also benefit ourselves. So let’s all learn the art of giving and sharing, and let’s make the world a better place together.
Good times and bad times are both a part of life. We can choose to be grateful for the good times and to learn and grow from the bad times. We can also choose to give and share with others, making the world a better place.
