With An Upturned Umbrella Or Without One?

Imagine you have to step out of your house… and it is pouring outside. You either take an umbrella along or don’t carry one at all. And suppose you do carry one, and it turns upside down…

Until a certain age in life, all of us are in our cozy, comfortable homes. Here, I mean that you take what you get, served on a platter. People dictate terms and you accept them and enjoy. Home will be home, schools will be chosen- you get to choose the subjects, picnics will be planned- you get the permission… The time spent at home though, may differ from person to person. Some leave home earlier than usual, some later, but leave home, almost all of us do.

And when the time comes for us to leave home, some carry the umbrella some don’t. An umbrella of hope and expectation. And in our journey along the road, leading to our goals it pours cats and dogs. Your umbrella turns and you face the same wind and rain, just like a person who doesn’t carry one at all.

If you carried one- the umbrella can be turned back down again, at least you had protection while it lasted and what if it just did not have to turn at all!

If you didn’t- Without the umbrella you were still on your way to the goal, saves time and embarrassment, brave the rain like an adventure!

Imagine you have to step out of your house… and it is pouring outside. You either take an umbrella along or don’t carry one at all. And suppose you do carry one, and it turns upside down…

Which one would rather be your case, if one of them had to be?

  1. With the umbrella 🙂
    More often then not, aren’t most of us almost always handed the umbrella without asking for it? 🙂

    I personally believe without hope and expectation the journey towards the goal would become melancholic. Wouldn’t it take out the passion, focus and desire?

    P.S. You have to answer this one too – Explain and justify 🙂
    Eager to read!

  2. I have never liked carrying an umbrella in the rain (literally), but my recent adventure in the rain and the subsequent stay in bed with high fever (literally again)….I must say, I now know better 🙂

    Metaphorically speaking, my umbrella of hope and expectations has always been of a rather large size. And this past one year of my time away from home, I don’t think without hope it would have been possible.

    I wouldn’t leave home without it, ever…. but I’d definitely make sure I carried my own 😉
