Alhamdulillah, its Friday again. A very fine & breezy morning, the lovely after-rain smell is still lingering around the damp air. Nothing smells better than that, it’s for certain. I love it. Given Friday is a casual day in my office; I decided to put on my ‘Dream Big’ sweater because I feel like snuggling in somewhere warm. I don’t want my body to get shocked by the stinging coldness. I’m longing for warmness and comfiness that if I have absolutely nothing to do in the humdrum office, I thought I would just blindly apply for an emergency leave, and doze off. I know I am a lazy monster, I know. I don’t mind if you judge me, lol.
It was getting latish and after a quick sip of my somewhat-liquidy-breakfast (I reserve my breakfast’s name 😛 ) I quietly sauntered down my usual path to work, while looking at the greyish blue sky. I am grateful for everything that I have now be it good or bad – I cherish all. I am sincerely grateful for every detail of my life, and myself. I know sometimes we might lose in some battles in some aspects of life and while we are busy being disappointed, demotivated and sad- more often than not we tend to forget how much it teaches us indirectly. It is perfectly okay to cry and shed those tears (we human!) but man, life goes on. You gotta move and run and jump over the obstacles that come in your way like in the Temple Run game.
Shit Things happened for a reason, remember? Instead of all those negative emotional rush, why don’t we take a chill pill, and be grateful for the other things in life that we still have? Like fresh air, the lovely families, non-problematic friends, a warm home to stay, being around our loved ones, a stable job to pay the damn bills (although you always go broke after), and so many more simple, little things in life. It is true that the most important and ultimately the most fulfilling “things” in life aren’t really things at all.
An advice to my future self, if by any chance you experience something unpleasant, and unfavourable – stay content and strong. I mean, strong in a way of evaluating the situation sanely and response upon it diligently, maturely. Life is a roller coaster. Enjoy every bit of it while it lasts. After a storm comes a calm, as they said. So, put yourself together in whatever situation.
Be grateful, always.
