The rewritten script

I’m seldom taken in by surprise. Even if I am, I act like I’m in control. Nothing bothers me. The best I’ve always done is when there’s chaos around me. I love tough times because when I’m in one , all I tell myself is how soon I’ll recount victoriously the tale of how I survived that phase. I control the pace of everything around me. I’ve a great set of friends and I live like a millionaire even though I’m not one. I always believe there is a way to make everything happen the way you want it to happen. In short, there’s nothing in my life right now, that isn’t in alignment to the script that I chose to write and I thank my Lord for that.

Yet what happened last week is so bizarre that I’m still struggling to figure this one out.

For once, I’m a little stumped by what confronts me. Its one thing that I was never prepared for this and it’s another that even my best preparation would have not helped one bit. Imagine reading a book, that you were told, had pictures on all the left hand pages of the book. You went as far as the middle of the book only to realize that the right hand pages of the book had pictures too.

Now, would you turn back all the pages to look at all the right hand side pictures as well? Or would you go ahead and keep looking at the pictures on the left hand side of the book? Or would you look at the pictures on both sides of the book?

But what if, to go ahead you had to choose only one side of the book to look at.What would you do?

Imagine waking up one fine morning and being told that you actually had two identities. Two lives. Two separate lives...

Hey man , just bored 15 floors below so I thought I'd drop by ( Not implying that I would not visit ur blog unless I was and all that .....)
Anyway i really liked that reference to 'normally distributed curve of individuals' . I never really saw groups of people that way but now that I try I can see how some of us can be so tolerant and others not so .
...Anyway too long

@ Jason & Ammu: Just been a little shaken by some of the things around...

@Shobhit: LoL! It was my meek attempt to justify the gulf I saw between some of us and others...

wonderfully expressed Issac...many a time when i try to look back at the pages on the right side i end up discovering that there is one more page...somewhere between the right and the left one...and then its again pretty disturbing...

If you missed certain parts of the book, you just have to decide if your revisitig the book is worth it.If it is worth, udoubtedly venture into that.If not, forget it.
