Little moments in our mundane days make our day a happy day. When my life was engulfed with a lot of chaos a couple of months back, I practiced gratitude, a habit of seeking ‘happyness’ in the little things in life and acknowledging the people behind the happy moments. It got solace to my restless soul and happyness to my heart. Once again, I continue on THP, wherein I list down at least 5 things/ people/ incidents which made my day a “Happy” day which I call “The Happyness Project (THP)”.
Today was a happy day, because :
- My dad sent me a beautiful video of a spiritual song on WhatsApp, and generally; I am not a fan of downloading videos but I am so glad I did, as it was such a perfect song to bring peace to my heart. God is the only constant companion we have in our lives who never fails us and who’d never leave our side. The lyrics of the song were soothing to listen to. I think God found me at the right time to comfort me and take me in his embrace when I needed it the most
My friend Luca, from sunny Poland, sent me a generous appreciation over an email I sent to him. It reminded me that friendships are not confined by barriers of language, borders and time.
As always, work days before the weekend are super busy. I had so much on my plate to do in the afternoon, that it felt overwhelming. Amidst the busy day, I went to collect some documents a block away from my office and Jazz and I struck a conversation and found ourselves laughing at a very silly thing till our tummy hurt and my eyes watered. Little moments of laughter amidst days so blue are a manna from heaven ❤
- I finally got the hiking bag I wanted to buy since years – not just that, it was a gift to me on a very special day and we could order it just the right time when it was on a sale. A big big thank you to my dearest friend for this amazing long due birthday gift.
Jala, thank you so much for sharing your life stories with me, listening to my grief and making me smile again. You are my rock!
