Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!

Little joys of life!

Life, I believe should be lived to enjoy the plenty of small little everyday joys!

Being trapped in a rigmarole of everyday life, it is always a challenge to maintain a perfect work – leisure balance. The weekdays zip past in meetings, deadlines, family, after school activities for kids….the list goes on. Weekends is all about catching up on the many personal chores. All of this drains out our energy with hardly any time for relaxing and “living life fully “

Being lost in this web of trying to get some sanity into a hectic life, I chanced to read a few beautiful lines sometime back. Would love to share it with all of you.

“ Most of us miss out on life’s big prizes

The Pultizer, The Nobel, Oscars or the Tonys

But we are all eligible for life’s small pleasures

A pat on the back, a peck on the cheek,

A great meal, hot soup, cold beer,

An empty parking space, a glorious sunset, a full moon!

Don’t fret about not getting life’s grand awards

Enjoy its tiny delights,

There are plenty for all of us “

Isn’t it beautiful?

Let the magnetic force of these tiny joys fill our lives with smiles and happiness!

“A great life is nothing but a series of great memories woven together! “ (Anonymous)

Pep up a little fun into your life with little joys. Breathe in a whiff of fresh air into your life. 

“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.”

    Your message reminds me of the famous line by Milton when he became blind. He says” They also serve who stand and wait”.
    Nothing is big or nothing is small.
    Happiness is individual state of mind.
    The blog deserves a place in every class room wall as a poster.

    Wonderful thought! Yes, our life is the accumulation of little things. If we overlook the little things and expect the big things, we miss out a big part of our life. Thank you for sharing!

    Thank you for sharing, Radhika and these little lovely pictures said it all. Awesome thought. Our life is full of collecting little things that mean so much to us. These little things are so much meaningful, we must learn to enjoy them instead of waiting for another day.

    Wow Radhika excellent post!! I especially loved the last lines 💓 Every single trivial thing is one of life’s blessings. There is no thing as “If I have that, I can be happy” or “If I can do that, I can be happy” etc. What’s present around us right now and what we are doing right now, even if it is watching the fan spin on the ceiling or stepping out of the verandah to see the squirrels running about, is life’s blessing. Wonderful of you to remind everyone about it, keep bringing more beautiful posts 💓

      Thanks Deepika for the beautiful feedback. When happiness is conditional it is fleeting and momentary. To remain in an eternal state of joy, like you rightly said, we need to appreciate the tiny delights of every day life💖
