Hello Everyone! Firstly, I know I am not a regular blogger. Its been long time since I have written here. Tadaaa! I am back. Hahaha.
To lead a life is not so easy, when you have all the right and wrong things around you equally contributing to the life. I have seen the days of happiness as well as days of sorrowfulness. For me its been a great life, I get food to eat, bed to sleep and a sweet family and some great friends to support me, ofcourse on timely manner. My life is full, but what about the people who do not have anything which I have. What about the people who had everything but lost themselves to natural disasters, terrorism etc. I just want to say, we see good, we see bad, but its what you do is matters. Try saving this World!
Well, let me leave you at this small story:
“One of the secrets of life is to find joy in the journey.”
But Grandma, you weren’t on this journey. It was just crazy–“
Grandma held up her hand. “You have six brothers. You got to spend a whole day in the car with them. You’re all healthy, well fed, happy… Someday, when you’re a little older, I’ll bet you’d give anything to be back in that van of yours with all of your brothers, smelly diapers and all.”
I mulled that over.
Well what about Dad?” I pointed out. “He didn’t find any joy in the journey. He was yelling at trees.”
Grandma sat back, “Your father and mother are masters at finding joy in the journey.”
I didn’t understand.
Grandma continued, “Do you really think your parents would have had seven kids if they couldn’t find joy in the journey?… I would be willing to wager that he’ll be laughing about this trip on Monday morning with his friends at work.”
Grandma took my hands into hers. “There are a lot of people in this life that will try to convince you that they’re selling something that will bring you joy. The simple fact of the matter is that things don’t bring you joy. You have to find joy in life experience. And if you take along somebody you love, then that journey is going to be all the more enjoyable.
I can promise you right now that both good and bad things are going to happen to you in your life. Good and bad things happen to everybody. Some people are good at finding the miserable things in life, and some are good at finding the joy. No matter what happens to you, what you remember is up to you.”
