A new hope

As a kid I used to get sad a lot , even now I get sad sometime, But this one incident helps me get over it. I try to remember this often. I was silent and moody girl. I used to keep my problem within myself. That day was worst in my life. There was lot of problem in my life. Well I felt like I have no reason to live , was kind of in verge of depression. Just life seemed so empty.

Life felt like lonely journey with just sad footsteps. I was very upset ,started walking aimlessly and all the sad memories were repeatedly going on in my mind and when I reached the road it started to rain. I sighed But found a bus stop and sat in that shade.

There opposite to that bus stop I saw a family , their hut was completely destroyed by the wind. They were trying to save their small possessions and rushed to the bus stop. I have strange tendency of taking other’s sadness as my own , I was looking at them with empathy. But among the family there was a small girl playing in the rain without any sign of sadness.

After the rain stopped they started to build their hut with smiling face . I was rooted to the spot , tears flooded down my face. This family had taught me a lot that day. I realized there were people like them in this world who can manage every challenge of life with happy smiling face and what I was doing all these days. In the dream of having perfect life I was blind about what I already had. Blaming god for every small reason I could find.๐Ÿ˜ฆ Even though I don’t have a perfect life, I have a good life easy to live. But I had spend my time in finding the things I don’t have. I didn’t thanked god ever whole heartily for giving me what I have today and I realised life is not as miserable as we make it seem. Itโ€™s the way we take things for example, even to make a tea we need tea powder,milk,sugar. we can’t use only sugar as that is our favorite. Likewise even if our life is full of happiness that would be boring ๐Ÿ™‚ and more importantly we can enjoy the real happiness only after passing the path of sadness. Life is perfect only with the mixture of happiness and sadness in equal amount. I decided to value the things I have from that day and to accept my sad time too with strong heart and finally that day wasn’t sad at all. It gave me lot of reason to live. My perfect day ๐Ÿ™‚ I could feel my smile , after all it is one of the rare occasion that happened to me ๐Ÿ™‚ Never belittle your life living in regret, One way or other life has something to provide. I walked home as a new person. with the hope to face my problems ๐Ÿ™‚

Surprisingly, my writing spree was ignited at a Haiku competition conducted by my college. This ignited spark then rendered to offer another hobby โ€œBloggingโ€ into my life. I have been blogging since then for the last 6 years. I like to motivate people, inspire them to be positive in their life.But being a silent girl , i rarely get the chance to mingle with anyone to express my thoughts. So here i voice out my opinions in words. After reading this people will know this silent girl , actually have a lot to tell to this world. I stick to the simple motto in life, 'Express yourself' In any way you are comfortable with . I have started doing it. What about you !!

  1. It really makes you think how some things, the little things, are taken for granted these days. Itโ€™s not at all about having what you want, but wanting what you have. ๐Ÿ™‚
