Where is our Happiness
In this Era of a virtual world, we miss the tiny little joy of our daily life. Did you ever give a thought, all that little jointly makes how much of total?
“Joy is A strength.”― Mother Teresa
Why do we reserve joy for a bigger occasion such as Holidays, Birthdays, Weddings, Anniversaries? Now, if you give it a thought, all these are planned, Joy. We know they are on the way. But then who doesn’t like to get surprised with the Unknown one.
The only condition with these unknown little ones is that you have to Recognize them. They are like Hide and seek. They are hidden in your daily Activities & you have to seek them.
“Those who wish to sing always find a song.” – Swedish Proverb.
Few Instances of Joy
An idea for this blog actually came to me when I was about to Ignore a similar kind of joy a few days before. I choose to walk at least half a way while coming back from office mostly. Invested in switching one account of Social Media to other, I failed to notice that I am passing by a Temple & Park. Suddenly a Little girl around 7-8 YO, all YELLOW like a sunflower, stopped by me on her Bicycle. She was all smile from ear to ear Meanwhile complaining too “Di, main bell Baja rahi hu, aap sun hi Nahi Rahe ho”.
I reflected her smile with same Intensity saying “Sorry” in as cutest way as possible yet I failed to over cute her.
“Welcome (She realizes she said something wrong & suddenly correcting), aree Nahi Nahi…. It’s ok .” and she went around giggling.That was the Cutest view of my today’s Journey I thought. but you never know if there are more to come.
Just when I thought of going back to the digital world, enters a chubby boy dressed totally in a Gentleman’s attire riding his brand new Bicycle. I was just Noticing him and all of sudden I hear him saying ” Aaj Mera BIRTHDAY hai” and I could sense his joy of being the birthday boy from his tone which sounded happiest.
You can expect a totally girly reaction ” Awwww, happy birthday….”
and I couldn’t resist myself from giving him a hug, (Technically it was half-hug since he was on a bicycle). The Joy I felt that time was Immense. And for the rest of the way I didn’t even unlock my device for once, I was totally engaged in figuring out what just happened, that INNOCENT face, childhood excitement. I was smiling all the way to home.
Live Your Life to the Fullest
This Might not be the biggest JOY but still, it made me happy at that moment of time and even for rest of the day. So it counts for me. I recognized it.

These Little joy may not come informing because they happen all the time, sometimes joy happens to me just merely looking at the sky full of stars and finding patterns SAPTRISHI.
