La Vita è Bella

La Vita è Bella-Life is Beautiful.

I watched an Italian movie by the same name. A simple movie. A fable-like tale of perceptions and its impact on our lives. In the movie, the protagonist convinces his son about a game which they're a part of, while being caught up in a Nazi extermination camp. He succeeds in morphing the grim reality to his son by his witty and jovial acts.

Talking about it's relevance in the current scenario of our hectic and demanding lives;It is very apt to inculcate this perspective of optimism,even if it is false. Because everything which happens to us is a consequence of our actions. By being positive about as many things as possible, we can reduce the trauma we undergo by the virtue of circumstances.

Optimism alone cannot better our lives, it can only make us feel better about things. And, this would have substantial positive impact on the actions emanating from us. Consequently,an optimistic approach to life is the best way to live a life.

Making life beautiful lies within our personal realms... Optimism is one of the best ways to accomplish it.
