This morning, I feel genuinely lucky waking up on a sunny day, drinking a crystal-clear glass of water, breathing clean air, and having my clothes clean so easy. Well, not everyone is this lucky. Life is so easy (or so much easier compared to others).
Many are always complaining about what doesn’t work. We can see very well that tiny red dot of ink on the pure white piece of cloth, but not realize how clean majority of it still is.
It’s more easy focusing on what’s wrong.
On times, traffic may be really heavy that you want to scream, “I am late for this important event even though I woke up so early not to.” Have you asked why is it so? There may be a road accident somewhere near but have you took time to rejoice that you aren’t hurt, that you are still breathing, that it can easily be you who got injured or died? You are lucky, you just didn’t realize it. Every thing, even the smallest one contribute to a cause-effect system we live in. There are incidences when the big surprising things are hidden in the smallest of things we can’t see.
I take this time to thank God, or this bigger Persona that keeps me breathing. I take this time to pause and be glad even with the tiniest details. I take this time to appreciate life and how precious it is. It is pure luck that I got born instead of another one, considering millions of other probabilities in the first place.
