Who doesn’t remember the school bell and the pleasant memories associated with it. And why does a school bell sound not so pleasant in the morning whereas the same bell sounds so beautiful at the end of school day closing.


The first bell signals a structured regimen of studies and discipline. Whereas the final bell is music to our ears as it heralds freedom fun and play.

How nice if we could start our day visualising the sweet sound of the second bell and have a wonderful day?

Come friends lets all “Live Life Less Serious” 😎 😎

    So true! It is our minds that reacts differently to the same thing! So, it is our minds’ responsibility if we are happy or sad, calm or disturbed, full of peace or anger, whatever we feel and not any other thing from outside!

    Great thought!
    Thanks for sharing!
    Tc, keep smiling πŸ™‚

    Change life by going out in the open before Sunrise and absorb the melodies of birds, the cool breeze rubbing the skin and rays emanating from the rising sun that invigorates each cell of the body. Our day is made – hurrah!

    It’s an interesting thought. We often view the same thing very differently, depending on the situation.

  14. A great thought. Transports you to the school days.

    Those days we felt restricted & constrained by our teachers & parents. We wanted to be free of them. Now that we are free, we want; ‘those good old days’.

    Wonder when will we be happy?????!!!!

      Ha Ha Ha very well said. What you say is so true “Wonder when will we be happy??”. I wish the schools have teachers who can teach children “How to be happy”?.

      Thanks and regards!
