How often do we complain about our lives? How many times do we say – Oh I wish the weather was warmer or colder, so much of work but so little time etc. I’m not against ranting…coz let’s face it…everyone rants about something. What is life without a few silly rants?
But often, in our busy lives, we forget to live happily with all the complaining. We forget that whatever little we may have, there is always someone who has less than you.
When I was in school, I used to worry about exams. During college and post graduation, assignments and project work ate me up. Now that I feel all grown up, the worries haven’t ceased. In fact there is a different set of worries. Like I said, worry is a part of life.
But today, I want to express my gratefulness towards things that make me happy.
I’m blessed to have a loving family who I can lean on for support at any given time of the day. My parents are my pillars, my sister is my guiding star and my hubby is my life. I feel grateful to have friends, few as they may be, who won’t judge me and who won’t be afraid to laugh on my face but also correct me when I’m wrong.
I don’t want to be all preachy but we are never satisfied with what he have. Everyone goes – “Ooh..they just launched a bigger and faster phone” or “Wow..let’s upgrade to a better car!!” And this my friends, is a never ending race.
In this constant need to one up our own selves, one should just pause, breathe in and should never fail to focus on what one has. Remember that what you have, may be someone else’s dream.
Enjoy the simple little pleasures of life. Cherish the small moments…that evening cup of coffee after a long hard day of work, the little compliment given to you by someone. Put on some relaxing music and dive into a pool of happiness. Because in the end, it’s these little things that really matter.
