One Shot Is What “It’s” All About

Hiya SCG,

inspiration to ship today’s post came from a movie The Deer Hunter, which blew me away. It made me truly think about the words of the main hero Michael (Robert de Niro), when he said: “You have to think about one shot. One shot is what it’s all about. A deer’s gotta be taken with one shot.”

You might be pondering, what is that inspiring in that quote, right? You are not a hunter anyhow, right? Please, allow me to share with you, what “hit” me straight into the core, when watching this must-watch movie.

***

[WARNING]<<< Please read it before reading this shipment >>>

Some of you might find this blog post too gray or morbid, but actual aim of this shipment is exactly the opposite. It is a call for celebration of life, it is a call for gratitude that we are alive, it is a call for marching fearlessly on our time-limited journey called life. However, feel free to skip it.

***

“One Shot Is What It’s All About” and It’s = Life

*

Life is a one shot trial.

that’s why:

“Be grateful for having a chance to BE, cherish every breath!”

*

What we do, what we say, what we feel – cannot be undone, paused, reversed, repeated, experienced ever again.

that’s why:

“Be conscious about yourself and experience here & now with all your senses. It will never come again.”

*

One unfortunate “shot” = event, accident, mere coincidence have power to turn your life around, in the best positive way or the most disastrous way.

that’s why:

“Be open and face those “shots”- have trust in yourself that you can handle them. Remember that everything shall pass.”

*

We were born to die and every day we are getting closer to it all of us, even just born infant just agreed to set out on a journey to death.

that’s why:

“Acknowledging the fact, how fragile our lives are can be huge energy booster and fear killer, when deciding whether to do something “risky” or not. Just do it, guys!”

*

SCG,

just be who you truly are, there is no time to do it later. Make difference and leave dent in this universe, you have got all you need for it ; your conscious mind and loving heart.

Have a super cool start of a week.

i.

    Thank you for REFRESHING US!

    Yes, I’ll. 😉

    Every body have a super cool week.

  2. True in all its nudity – we have one shot to live (this) life. On one side scary, on the other one so exciting. Time is running – one thing we can’t steer our way – it always goes on.
    But we should remember that every moment we can steer this “life-bullet” of ours to another direction, that we like – it’s never too late. Thanks Ivana, for putting this post – it exactly sums up the thoughts I have been having recently after watching Invictus and Dead Poets Society 🙂
    Lets shoot!

  6. Salam Ivana, (i want to share some of my childhood memories)
    when I was a child ,I was thinking that “WHAT IS LIFE”…. I spent most of the time with my grandma… In past i questioned to my Grandma that “WHAT IS LIFE”…===>[History Behind that Question==> (**** I know it was a very silly question.. ,why i questioned this to my grandma because one day my grandpa gave me a gift and when i opened that gift,a paper was there WITH DAIRY and on that paper it was written that “THIS IS THE BEST GIFT THAT I CHOOSE FOR YOU BECAUSE YOU CAN PUT UR LIFE’s SORROWS AND HAPPINESS AND ABOUT THE PEOPLE WHO DARE TO U MOST…. AND YOUR PURPOSE OF CREATION”. When i read that sentence , i didn’t understand what he wants to say.. I took that piece of paper to my grandma and said to her,”GRANDMA I DIDN’T GET,WHAT HE WANTS TO SAY”.. When she read that sentence, she smile and said “ISSI ITS ABOUT LIFE AND YOUR AIM IN LIFE”….. And this time too i didn’t get what she want to teach me…. So then i said that question which i mentioned before… ***) ]…. She said*,
    1) “ISSI YOUR DAD,MOM,GRANDPA,ME AND EVERY FAMILY MEMBERS LOVES YOU SO MUCH… THIS IS LIFE…. MORAL: LOVE IS LIFE”
    2) “YOU SEE WHEN SOMEONE SUFFERING IN OUR HOME THEN EVERYONE WORRIED ABOUT THAT PERSON…MORAL: FEELING THE SUFFERINGS OF OTHERS IS LIFE..”
    3) “ME(GRANDMA) AND UR GRANDPA ARE FRIENDS AND LOVE EACH OTHER…. SO I TOLD YOU THAT LOVE IS LIFE THEN.. FRIENDSHIP IS ALSO LIFE(MORAL)…”
    4) “YOUR DAD WORK HARD FOR YOU AND THE FAMILY… MORAL: HARD WORK IS LIFE”
    5) “ISSI YOU SEE EVERY THING HAS SOME PURPOSE E-G TOYS USE FOR PLAYING, CHAIR USE TO SIT ETC.. SO WE ALSO HAVE PURPOSE WHICH YOU’LL FIND IN FUTURE…”
    6) “WHEN SOMEONE LOOK TOWARD YOU WITH SMILE , YOU FEEL ,THAT PERSON LOVES YOU A LOT… MORAL: SMILE IS A LIFE”
    7) “ISSI NO THING IN THIS WORLD IS EVERLASTING…. MORAL: THINK ABOUT DEATH ALWAYS SO THAT U CAN KNOW ABOUT THE PURPOSE OF UR CREATION..”

    ……. (CONTINUED 8 points remaining i think i becomes very big comment.. Actually bigger than ur post… thats why i skip that 8 points… 😉 lol)

    *ACTUALLY THESE POINTS I FIRST WROTE IN THE DAIRY WHICH MY GRANDPA GAVE ME…. I’M REALLY MISSING HIM… 😦 MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PEACE… 🙂

    Nice post….. It reminds me my beautiful past……… 🙂
