You are born in this world and then you depart from here, what is left behind is the long journey you had during this time. Shakespeare imagined the world a stage, where everyone plays their character and then leaves when time finally come. Some leave early whereas some takes time. Though the time in between is what counts a lot, but in our journey, we are so imbibed in our daily routine that we forgo those moments which is actually a source of happiness to us. Moments that does not define our success or failure, it is only to revive us from our pitfalls which we faced while living a life.
What are those moments? And how do these moments become a source of happiness? To answer this, let me narrate a scene of a mother and child: when a child takes first step, this becomes one of the happiest moment for a mother even if she has gone through a bad day. Sounds cheesy! But this is a universal fact. Now move to a broader perspective; it’s your birthday and you did not expect anything to be grand because of your new place, but one of your colleagues’ give you surprise by giving birthday gift. Sometimes you are not expecting and you receive the biggest news of your life, which brings a big smile on your face. It is not important for something to be grand, a simple chit-chat at the dinner table in the evening with one’s family- a feeling of joy is surrounded with it. There are many times where our joy is associated with our family, friends and bond shared between us. However, not only family and friends are the source of happiness, sometimes any scenery or any novel and even sighting birds are the reasons of your delight.
Having said that, the world is moving at fast pace and we all are in a rat-race of achieving high, criticizing each other by being harsh and taking our relationships for granted. We think that we can just have all these small moments at the end of our life because for now it’s just wasting our time, but that is it! How can we be so sure of having one of this later in our life? Therefore just have a cup of tea with your family, all sitting together and laughing their hearts out, because that is the pure contented life.
