Beginning of December..

 

What a pleasant morning!

Have you ever smiled as soon as you wake up because the morning just feels awesome? Then, you know how I felt this morning. 🙂

My friend was telling me about an incident she experienced for the first time and was completely taken aback by it. A man suddenly collapsed in the bus yesterday; The bus driver stopped the bus immediately and was trying to help the guy; there was another man who was trying to call the ambulance. What surprised my friend was that people just don’t have presence of mind in situations like this.. they should have rushed the man to the hospital instead of waiting for the ambulance to arrive. Who knows if the man had just had a heart attack? My friend doesn’t know what happened to the man later. Hopefully, everything went well for him. But every incident like this just makes me think more about the value of human life in today’s world. It is in situations like this, I thank God for blessing me with a wonderful life. Why is it that the importance of our life hits us only when we see someone else struggle? Why can’t we just be happy for who we are and what we have? People are just complicated. But..

Life is just as simple as you want it to be…

Anyway, after falling asleep with a heavy heart, I genuinely woke up with a light heart and a smile, feeling blessed for another beautiful day in my life. I felt it would be nice to share that feeling with you! 😀

Stream of Life” by Rabindranath Tagore

The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day
runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures.

It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth
in numberless blades of grass
and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers.

It is the same life that is rocked in the ocean-cradle of birth
and of death, in ebb and in flow.

I feel my limbs are made glorious by the touch of this world of life.
And my pride is from the life-throb of ages dancing in my blood this moment.

Have an awesome month ahead… Hugs!
