Inverted Pyramids: On seeing things in perspective

Having been around for quite some time, sometimes I tend to take a I have seen it all approach to life.But anyone who knows me will tell you, this is superseded by an unholy glee in things most mundane. My reactions depend on which side of the bed I got out of!

Ya Ya, before I veer completely off track, let me come to the point....

What seems to be a life and death incident at any point in time, turns out to be insignificant most of the time..or whats perhaps worse, we end up making the wrong move. When I recollect how I have missed out on going to watch MLTR live because I had to study for the third unit test of Sanskrit in 8th std, for example, I feel sad. How does it matter how I performed???? (As a matter of fact I did badly, but then I blame the teacher for setting most of the questions from those chapters I happened to skip)

It is difficult to understand what is important and what is not. And it s even more difficult to live as if all each encounter is a life threatening battle. Perhaps that is where a third person can help bring in a sense of perspective.

Hope we all find that someone...if we have not already :)
