Some days you have to count your small joys ( specially when the bigger picture does not look so happy ) So , for this week, I sat and listed the below things that make me smile and keep my mind off the not so happy thoughts :
Gym . Finally I joined one and pray I do not skip many days.
Best Friend. For daily listening to *same* complaints of mine. not to mention she has similar ones from her workplace
Teammates . No matter how stressful the work gets or idiotic the people go , most of the people at offshore are a pleasure to work with and I am thankful for that.
Internet. After the last week of no net at home scenario , finally internet issues are fixed. The online watching of some of my favorite show has begun.
Mom. Bless her to bear my rants every day.
Him. He is my strength to survive many of the days off-late.
Books. < need I say more ? >
Writing this post. I needed the smiles right now again.
Reading your posts and comments. I will be doing more of it soon.
Spreading Love. Start with yourself , with your loved ones , and include a stranger too some days.
Prayers. I am trying to pray often. Thank God for that. and thank Mom.
Each morning when I wake up, I do not thank God for the wonderful day he blessed me with. I instead check upon my emails , text messages and tweets. As I go about my day, I think of God once in a while – to crib , complain or an occasional thank you for setting something unexpectedly right for me. But do I thank him without a cause ? Oh, I remember I do. when I sit back and contemplate what is wrong with my life. And as I sis to find ways to fix them, I say to God, Oh dude, you gotta help me with this. Please !
I have a lot of questions to ask, and a lot of answers to share with him. I totally believe in “everything happens for good”. I have lived this epiphany a lot of times in the last 10 years. And yet, when I need to cry , I must and I do. No reasons or excuses given to any. When I am upset , I just am. No reasons or excuse small or big enough to justify my sour mood.
I am not perfect – oh I am far from it. But I try.I try hard. And all that I wish is God to see through those tries and trials and keep me safe and blessed.
I hope you will forgive me not praying daily.
I hope you know I love and respect your words a lot but I fail to follow them always. I hope you keep loving me the same as today. And last, I hope you keep all these hopes alive in me, as long as I live.
Bless me !
Bless all !
