What is it about the simple little things that make us happy?
A good book,
A relaxing cup of coffee,
The sun when its cold outside,
A welcome relief of rain during peak summer,
Grey skies and bright green leaves,
A cup of ice cream to beat the heat,
Taking a long walk, without time rushing you by.
The more that I thought about what is it that I need to do with life and how to exactly live, I realised that its the simple things that matter.
Recently someone I know bagged a high paying job after finishing the course that I am currently pursuing. We started together and here I am, still, one exam away.
Admitted that I had taken the decisions that lead me here, ones that I thought were well planned, some worked in my favour and the others tanked.
I have been beating myself up mentally, as to why I didn’t stick to the original plan. But once I calmed down post the panic attack, I felt okay. Now I can’t go back to change what happened till date and I guess I wouldn’t, I probably would have stayed back with a boss who harassed me day in day out, never have met ‘him’, taken a vacation to Pondicherry or a road trip to Araku and most importantly, would have never started this blog!
We do take the little things for granted, a warm home cooked meal over conversations with my family, the liberty to just take off for a day and do nothing but prance around in pajamas gorging on chocolate cake or just the fact that I’m here, alive, healthy and happy.
