On a cold winter evening, I just had a cup of plain, simple coffee and to me, it served its purpose. I am not a big fan of fancy things, yet I work to deliver the best. There is so much of joy in simple things of life that I can’t stop adoring that how beautiful our Mother Nature is.
You will laugh at me but yesterday I went into a field which was full of carrots – it was for the first time I saw how carrots are grown. The scene was perfect, at least for me – so I spent an hour there talking to people and discovered how much they adore their lives. Recession has no meaning for them and they are growing vegetables as they used to. They are simple human beings who enjoy doing their work!
In this age of cost-cutting & downsizing, more than ever it is suggested that it’s mission-critical to find joy in life's simplest pleasures. When the economy was on high, we used to take things taken for granted. Due to that mad race, the activities we've overlooked in our lives became dramatically bust. Those small recreation actions that used to our nourishment just vanished.
Here is what my point is: we live in a world that is valued on money - often above all else. However, I've met a lot of very rich people - who had a lot of wealth and not much else. You will meet a lot of people who say money is really important as it buys us freedom of choice, brands, home in a posh location and a nice home or a great vacation. However, how many of us actually think that is if the MOST important thing in life? Think for two minutes before you give any answer….
During this season, slow down a little - to cherish & celebrate life's simpler pleasures – a conversation with someone you love, a brilliantly cooked meal, read a book that used to fill your heart with delight but you haven't picked it up for years, like calling your parents more often and if you get time, visit a farm, do some gardening and plant more trees. Life is beautiful, if only we see it as that!
