Five B’s of My Life.

Oh! Brain! With no drain, Takes me in bullet train, Where ideas flow like rain.
Oh! Book! Wiseman on rack, Soars my imagination, Where I can conquer any nation.
Oh! Buck! Favors only hard work, Comes with no luck, Save me from any heck.
Oh! Babes! Make me feel wonderful, Make my world beautiful, Without them life is awful.
Oh! Beer! Brew of good times, Gets me on a dash, For a splendid bash.
Without five B’s of life, My world is just a Boo! With five B’s of life, My life is a big Woo hoo!

It was very hard to carry on with those hard feelings and we feel restless, confused, irritated and even show red face to closest friends.
It was during those worry filled days of mine, I stumbled upon a book called Psycho Cybernetics by Dr. Maxwell Maltz, a world famous plastic surgeon who is also renowned for his study on psychology, suggested to me by one of my closest friends. I read and read through each pages, word by word. It was an awesome book which taught me how to live in the present without worrying about past and future. Getting a cue from that book I went on to read an article which was an address titled ‘A Way of Life’ given by William Osler to the students of Yale University in the year 1913.
