Lately, i am in the process of developing the habit of saying thank you for all the tiny little joys of life that so often are taken so for granted. The morning sun, the chirping birds, the water to drink, the food to eat, the house to live, the friends to cherish, the family for support, the new hope for new day, the smiles, the laughter and even the tears to make me strong.
Every single thing deserves my gratitude, my love. And this is why i have decided to be say thank you each day to remind myself what a beautiful life i have been blessed with.
We are always running a race in our heads, never living fully in the moment, rushing back and forth meddling in the thoughts of past or future; and this thoughtless running makes us thankless for the simplest things we are blessed with.
If tomorrow there is an earthquake or a flood or a draught or any kind of natural calamity; and we are stuck in the middle of it with a ruined house, no food to eat, no water to drink and no loved ones left in the world, what shall we do then? Shall we be able to fight the nature to give us our all back?
Such is the magnitude of our blessings; but we fail to count them since we never got a minute to spare and thank the universe, the nature and the source. We take the little things and tiny joys so for granted like we are entitled to those. I am walking on the road and I see a crippled person walking on the road and a thought crosses my mind that i am thankful for a perfect health and working limbs. But am i entitled? No, none of us is entitled. We are all blessed.
This is what i want to remember for the rest of my life that i am blessed. Whatever turn my life takes, i have immense number of blessings to count and be thankful for.
And here, i want to take this opportunity to thank my blog and all the people i have come across here. Thanks to everyone who ever landed here, thanks to everyone who shared their valuable comments and encouraging words. Thanks for being a blessing. I love you all.
