Many of us feel that our life is the most tragic one on earth. It’s very easy to crib about your life. Take out some alone time and think for a while; you’ll always think about things that went wrong, people who left you behind, things that made you weak or things that turned your life upside down.
The feeling of falling in love- Even if things didn’t work out; think about the good times, think about the moment when you were getting ready for your first date, think about how you crossed your fingers as you entered the coffee shop, think about how a peck made you blush. That’s a moment of joy.
The days of participation- Even if you didn’t win; think about the days you spent practicing for it, think about the classes you bunked, think about the friends you made during the competition, think about the people hooting for you, think about the adrenaline rush before the final countdown. That’s a moment of joy.
Introducing your boyfriend to your parents- Even if your parents were unsupportive at first; think about how a positive vibe drops in, think about how your parents tease you all the time, think about how your dad becomes a lot more caring, think about how your family suddenly seems complete. That’s a moment of joy.
Getting your first paycheck- Even if you have worked really hard and the amount is small; think about the excitement you undergo as you open the envelope, think about the work you have done to earn those few pennies, think about how proud your parents feel as you give them the cheque. That’s a moment of joy.
Pulling your best friend out of a mess- Even if you had n no. of fights; think about how you were there to hold her hand, think about how you took her for a walk and had Belgian chocolate ice cream, think about how you both had a good laugh after a whole day of mess. That’s a moment of joy.
When your pet asks you to play- Even if you had a tiring day; think about how your pet brings a toy to you wagging its tail, think about how it runs all over the house to show how happy it is, think about how you suddenly forget all your tiredness. That’s a moment of joy.
Be thankful for what you have and learn to count your moments of joy. If you want to lead a positive life no book, no quote will help you. “You” have to start counting the good days and positivity will be knocking on your door. 🙂
