remember the coke ad..little drops of joy!
Its actually those little things that make you smile and feel happy. When I came to Bangalore, I was miles away from home, and would mostly miss my parents. I started finding joy in the smallest of things. Seeing a butterfly inside office campus made me happy. I have learnt a big lesson this way...as of now I can think of so many small things that have made a big difference and made me happy.
I have taken an interest in cooking, only coz Jeev is a foodie, and its hard to get a compliment from him. The days when he says the food is good, I am on Cloud 9. As I go to work listening to Prithvi on Radio One, if he happens to play one of my favourite songs...my day is made. While doing a routine tidying of my wardrobe, if I come across some money that I had long forgotten...I feel I have won a lottery. My joy knew no bounds, when I casually remarked I feel like having ice-cream while we were at Jeev's house, and Jeev's dad went ahead to order ice-cream for me :). I am crazy about mangoes and about mom's cofee too, and dad would bring this for me when he would come to meet me at Pune..all the way from Ambernath...this brings tears of joy to my eyes...how thoughtful of them to do all this for me.
This list is really big...
The first showers, the sound of koel, the huge trees on airport road, seeing an aircraft take off at the hal airport on my way to work, passing by Maratahalli bridge without having to wait for a signal,seeing the weighing machine show a sign of improvement...woow it makes me happy to recollect all these happy moments as well...
Another funda I like to share, when you are in the most horrible mood, recall one of your most happy moments. Nothing can pep your soul any better.
I hope someone is reading and this makes her mood better.
