Do you realize?

flower-1144088_1920

Each morning when you wake up, and those rays of the morning sun fall on your face, do you realize how lucky you are to be alive?
And when you see how beautiful the day is, and how lovely it is to listen to the voices of your loved ones, and when the delicious smell of the food that is being cooked in the kitchen wafts through your nostrils, do you realize how grateful you must be to have all your senses working perfectly? To have a roof over your head, to have food to eat and clothes to wear?
And do you realize how blessed you are to have your loved ones who care about you, to have friends who will stand by you?
Do you realize how beautiful a place the world could be if you could only share a smile with that stranger you see across the street or the one sitting beside you on the bus?
Do you realize that there is something that you can learn each day?
Do you know that there are a thousand things that you could do each day, but even one small deed could make someone’s day?
Don’t you realize that no matter how difficult life is, it is beautiful? All you have to do is keep fighting and do not give up hope.
You feel the sun has set and the darkness is on. But don’t you know while the sun has set here, it is shining bright in some other part of the world?
And yes, I hope you do realize that we are all travelers on life’s journey and hence we don’t have all the time. So hurry up, live each day to the fullest, smile, learn something new, lend a helping hand, make all your dreams come true. Do you realize that your destiny is yours to make?
And did you just realize that you are special and your life is beautiful too?

  1. Amazing article! It inspired me to sit back and get into that mode of realization. The fact though known, has to be reminded and that is what i got reading your blog. Life is indeed a very beautiful journey and making it a daily practice of integrating a small amount of time to take counts of positives, each day can be productive.

    It really is the little things that make a difference. Looking at our lives via the prism of gratitude can drastically change how we live our day to day existence. These reminders are both necessary and beautiful.

    1. Reema D'souza says:

      Yes, these are necessary! Because at times we are so busy that we fail to see what we have.

  6. The fact that you are alive at this moment when you read this comment is enough for you have a big smile on your face. Every moment spent is like a moment closer to the grave. So no cribbing, but only smiling.

    1. Reema D'souza says:

      Yes, that is true! Smiling more will definitely brighten our day.

  11. Geets says:

    Yes, sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t. There are moments when we feel thankful for so many little things in life and then there are times when we tend to forget everything we have and get busy in the turmoil that life offers!

    Cheers
