Life's little pleasures!
Ask me about what I dislike about myself and my answer will be ‘Nothing at all’! In fact I like everything about myself. I am quite a narcissist. No it’s not mine but it is the answer of a person I came across last week when travelling in the bus in the capital. Since then I have been just thinking how can one be happy always without bothering about the everyday happenings; just open up the television news channel and one can guess how congested the world is to have a breathe in peace.
Here comes the happiness that our daily life brings for us irrespective of the hullabaloo and that lies in the little pleasures. But usually we don’t catch them, as our expectations are so sky-high that we forgot to smile or laugh at those little pleasures.
Scientifically it has been proved that people who are happy are certainly healthier and successful than those who are angry and depressed. But it is difficult to be happy and contained in a selfish world but then be selfish for yourself by plucking each beautiful moment of joy and peace that comes your way. Remember, “Happiness is a thing of practice.”
No, I am still to reconcile on these things, as I am in search for happiness ‘the big one’ in terms of achievements and accomplishments in my personal and professional life. But on the way I some how forgot those days in school and college which were full of fun and mischievous act and give me a sense that how inspiring those days were to reach here and how tiring it is today to move further.
My friends, old friends with whom I enjoyed my college days moving across the university campus for nothing concrete, now talks about me as I am the most busiest person probably than Bill Gates. I know why, as there are now no more such days but again the workload in office, the aim to be at high and the expectation from others together thrust me down under.
Imagine you had a relationship break down which left you depressed and alone but there are inspiring and encouraging people may be those pep talk of mother or a shoulder to cry on from a friend, which acts as emotional boost when you just need a speck of calm in the chaos. Here comes the little pleasure with the feeling that there is many to care for you and in turn you need to spread happiness to them by being happy.
I can define those little pleasures when I go to temple once a week and the tranquillity in and around just nothing but happiness. I am happy when I play and talk with my neighbour’s child, I am happy when I get a phone call from an old friend, and I am happy when I finished successfully while playing a Sudoku puzzle; these makes me feel that there is much left to get pleasure from and hence no reason to feel blue.
I can recall the following lines from a famous song by the band Sting:
What's the use of worrying and feeling blue When days are long keep on smiling through Spread a little happiness till dreams come true
This certainly makes me believe to face challenge and inspire myself (if not others) by dreaming something big and make it fulfill just by enjoying those little moments.
In the end I need to come home!
