Life is a matter of perspective.

We have had a general cleaning at home on a Sunday morning as it was the only day that it strikes me to be that “working” at home.

I was browsing then all my stuff and suddenly an old book of mine crossed my eyes.

I got the chance of reading it as I was so tired and feel the need to relax by reading whatever available.

The first chapter caught my attention and I would also want to share it with you all. Somehow, realize something about life and how we see it, how we handle or deal with it.

The book is entitled: The early bird catches the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese by Francis J. Kong

Chapter 1: If you love something…

Life is a matter of perspective.

The author received a funny little article about loving something:

THE ORIGINAL VERSION USED TO BE THIS:
If you love something, set it free…
If it comes back, it’s yours; If it doesn’t, it never was yours in the first place.

BUT THE PESSIMIST’S VERSION IS THIS:
If you love somebody, set her free…
If she ever comes back, she’s yours, If she doesn’t, well, as expected, she never was.

THE OPTIMIST’S VERSION:
If you love somebody, set her free…
Don’t worry, she will come back.

THE SUSPICIOUS’ VERSION:
If you love somebody, set her free…
If she ever comes back, ask her why.

THE IMPATIENT PERSON’S VERSION:
If you love somebody, set her free…
If she doesn’t come back within some time limit, forget her.

THE PATIENT PERSON’S VERSION:
If you love somebody, set her free…
If she doesn’t come back, continue to wait until she comes back…

THE PLAYFUL VERSION:
If you love somebody, set her free…
*If she comes back, and if you love her still, set her free again, repeat*

THE LAWYER’S VERSION:
If you love somebody, set her free…
Clause 1a of Paragraph 13a-1 in the second amendment of the Matrimonial Freedom Act states that…

THE STATISTICIAN’S VERSION:
If you love somebody, set her free…
If she loves you, the probability of her coming back is high.
If she doesn’t, your relationship was improbable anyway.

THE POSSESSIVE VERSION:
If you love somebody don’t ever set her free.

THE MBA VERSION:
If you love somebody, set her free… instantaneously… and look for others simultaneously.

THE PSYCHOLOGIST’S VERSION:
If you love somebody, set her free…
If she comes back, her super ego is dominant. If she doesn’t come back, her IQ is supreme. If she doesn’t go, she must be crazy.

THE FINANCE EXPERT VERSION:
If you love somebody, set her free…
If she comes back, it’s time for you to look for fresh loans. If she doesn’t write her off as an asset gone bad.

THE MARKETING VERSION:
If you love somebody, set her free…
If she comes back, she has a brand loyalty. If she doesn’t reposition the brand in new markets.

And the author’s version:

If you love somebody, you will care enough to share your life to help, to give, rather than to get or receive.
If you love somebody, you will rejoice at that person’s success.
And most importantly…
If you love somebody, you would pray for that person and bring him or her to the Savior.

Now that’s what the real issue in love is all about. And that’s the right perspective.

You see, life is a matter of perspective. It always depend on how you see life will go on, specially during bad times.

The universe will treat you the way you want in accordance to how you would want to be treated.

Cheers to a good and happy life! xoxo
