Yes, you read it correctly. It’s the little things in life. The joy these little things give you is immeasurable. These little things constitute the best part of your life.
You must be thinking that how can I say this, well, I’ve experienced this.
A small cup of coffee, a two-minute nap, a dog’s smile, watching the sunset, a perfectly baked cookie, a warm bed on a cold day, and a child’s hug are some of the best things which you can experience in life.
I once visited a place named Centre for Autism and Disabilities, where kids suffering from autism and other mental disabilities come and learn some basic life skills so that if not fully independent, they can at least do their own work. And when I met those kids, I was like, Wow!! these kids are the real superheroes. Though they were suffering from such serious disorders, they knew how to be happy and make others happy.
Though my board examinations were around the corner, still I couldn’t resist the urge to go and meet them.
And then a boy named Akash, who was suffering from Down’s syndrome came and hugged me and suddenly all my worries, all my tension flew away, and I felt like I’m in heaven.
All those kids were a lesson to me. They taught me to be content and happy even if you’re not as perfect as the society wants you to be.
They taught me to be brave and fight all the hardships life throws at you, and most importantly, to enjoy the little things.
Don’t postpone your happiness, experience life in every possible way which makes you happy. Start appreciating these little things and you will see the difference.
The small things of life were often so much bigger than the great things… The trivial pleasure like cooking, one’s home, little poems especially sad ones, solitary walks, funny things seen and overheard.
