Life is somewhat like a jumbled up  Rubik’s cube.

How does it compare?

Life is never perfectly aligned

Pieces are almost always never in place when you so desperately need
them to be.

You twist and you turn, flip and flop. You might get
one side intact (by accidental luck?) and you whoop for joy

And you feel self-congratulatory, celebrate a little and tackle the next side with utmost confidence. Then as soon as you got the second side all matched up, side no.1 gets screwed up again???


You desperately try to salvage side no.1, which took longer than the first time because DAGNABBIT you don’t remember anything
you did to get side no 1 matched up.  When you finally do you huff in exhaustion, your brain feels like it has been to a brain gym for hours, then, half-heartedly, you give a go at side no 2, keeping your eye on side no.1 like a hawk. Twist turn flip right up left down down flip turn twist. NO!! 


You’re back to square 1.

After trying and messing up one time too many and the cube still looks like the way it was before,


And you either leave it in its corner to collect dust, or you fling it to a wall and watch it smash to smithereens.

Some people, who were given more than their fair share of brain cells and luck, do manage to find that formula or algorithmthat actually works. Their algorithms might differ, but all showed the same conclusion.

SENSATIONAL SUCCESS: an immaculate “cube” with all pieces in place

These are the people who we call, the elite, the superstars, the rich and famous, THE KING OF THE HILL, and are worshipped
by people from a thousand kingdoms who are trying desperately to attain that perfect “cube”.

Yes, many of us are still staring at the algorithms with a “cube” clutched desperately in our hands, trying to imitate what these geniuses do with no idea how the algorithm really works.

We may solve it alright, all sides aligned, and yet you want more,

 you want to solve it blindfolded, behind your back, in lightning speed...etc. 

Or some of us who lack the cranial capacity might just break the “cube” and try to put the pieces back together in their perfect little corners, oftentimes losing some vital pieces and ending up with an incomplete cube.

to these people, I say , STOP OBSESSING!

Because life, unlike a Rubik’s cube, is not about getting all the
pieces perfectly in place. Life is about adapting and dealing with the pieces that are not where it is supposed to be, and making the best of it. 

Even for people who made it big, who achieved what everyone benchmarks as the perfect life, there is bound to be at least ONE PIECE that is out of place.

And that is how it is supposed to be, life is about learning to move the pieces step by step, and celebrating all the short algorithms you create in moving those pieces, about appreciating that one side of life that may already be perfectly aligned. Even if the red ends up in the yellow side, you may discover that the two colours together actually do create a striking combination. And you embrace that. Embrace those unmatching pieces because those are the pieces that are going to make your life a little more interesting and colourful

Obsess about getting all sides of life perfect, you may screw up what you already have, and stand to push away the pieces that means most to you. As well as wasting precious time and energy.  

Tell me if this is true, There is always an itch to jumble up a perfect cube because a perfect cube looks so painstakingly PLAIN & PREDICTABLE, and somewhat PRETENTIOUS.

So I say this:
