A morning breeze from the window welcomed me as I woke up after losing my duel with the ever beloved sleep. That breeze made me grin and bear my fate as the beautiful day lay ahead.
A small moment, in fact, rather insignificant one but it gave me some joy sans any inhibitions. It is then I realized that actually I sometimes fail to appreciate these small wonders of life.
I feel that it is not only big things that make our lives. It is not only surprises that make us rejoice. They are surely grand things, but they form a little part of the grand scheme. Hence, as we endlessly keep striving for the ultimate happiness, happiness keeps passing by at every tick of the clock.
Moments, or shall I say small moments are really easy to be forgotten. They do not offer anything spectacular that would be etched on our minds forever. As we blink, these moments become a memory.
However, a colour they add to our lives lingers around much longer. They are some free strokes from a painting brush of creator and their colour slowly spreads over the canvas. It remains there until another colour is added to the picture and a new shed is created. These moments fade like an evening hue.
Small moments seldom demand any sacrifices from us. Just as we reciprocate to a warm smile, just as we hold a child’s hand and comfort him, just as we appreciate bewitching beauty of earth, we refurbish our spirit without losing anything. We never realize, but we are selfless for those seconds. The delight of those moments is simply unconditional.
These moments have their own life of few mesmerizing minutes. We live them in their accord. Freedom is the only thing that can define them. As we experience them, a sense of freedom, a sense of serenity transcends the sense of time and shackles of obligations. Such is the magic of these moments.
Therefore, as I write this little piece, one more small wonder is added in my life. I hope you have added one too.
