This is further to the post where I requested you to observe to #keepsmiling.
Well, that was a bit war like story!!! And maybe didn’t appear attractive. Here is another observation that made me smile today. And actually, similar observations frequently do.
“YOU MAKE ME SMILE” was the quote I read on somebody’s t-shirt at quite a distance. But it immediately brought a smile and I kept smiling remembering the quote.
Do you read t-shirts? Or quotes around you? Does it make you smile?
“This,🤔 is the right age to finish college!” “That,🤔 is the right age to get married!” Another this,🤔 is the age to settle down! Still another,🤔 is the time when you must own a house. This is the way to behave!🤔 have you heard anything similar?🙄
What do you think about ‘all this’? Do you step ahead in life keeping all ‘this and that’ in mind?
Release some of “this and that”! Get rid of those that don’t suit you. It’s impossible to do everything PERFECT and get everything PERFECT! And, at the PERFECT time! You have to break certain predefined rules to #keepsmiling. You have to release some stress! And just chill! What do you say?😝
Do you need a bungalow? Or a million dollars job? To #keepsmiling? Maybe if you set yourself up for these! But none of it is a must.
Today I was short of cash in my pocket. in fact, I had realised this ‘about to knock’ shortage several days ago! Being the last few days of the month I was trying not to withdraw from the bank.
However, today my pocket balance was humungous $0!🤐 And suddenly when putting up clothes to wash, “WHOAAAH!!!😮” I found a hundred rupees note😎. I can’t narrate the feeling of joy and surprise. It happens to me by chance but keeping cash in such places could surprise you and give reasons to #keepsmiling😁
What is the means to #keepsmiling forever? Yes, I have already shared a few. I just thought of one more for myself actually. Pick it up if it suits you.
Most of us wish to be successful and achieve. Good, definitely great! We all should attempt to be our very best!
At the same time, what if you base your happiness on success and achievements of others? I mean that we should FIND 😛 somebody succeeding and feel glad about the person!
Think about it logically and ’emotionally’😝! You are only ‘one’ person, and ‘others’ are in HUMENGOUS numbers. Already we are several billions of people across the globe. Can you imagine the opportunities for you to #keepsmiling?
I frequently come across a video of the superstar Amitabh Bachchan. In it, the bollywood superstar narrates about the days when he was struggling for an opportunity.
After coming home the disappointed, ‘yet to be’ actor would say, “There is too much struggle in life.”
To this, his father, Sri Harivansh Rai Bachchan, would say, “So long as there is life, there’s going to be struggle.”
Such a powerful statement to remember. And one that will enable us to #keepsmiling come whatever may! Just being aware of this FACT makes everything much simpler.
Walking on the street, sitting in a restaurant, standing in a shop, choose anything!
Whatever you do, wherever you go, make it a practice to observe. When you begin to observe the people around, you will find numerous moments that will make you smile.😝
Just yesterday I was near a bus stop in Chennai and a person slept off on the roadside. He appeared heavily drunk. A shopkeeper came to pick him up and the drunk guy tried to hit him (maybe he felt that someone wants to kidnap).
Then the shopkeeper got furious and man!!! Slap upon slap upon slap, he pasted six to seven right on the cheek of the drunk. And the drunk was sent back to sleep on the road.
I stood by the side and I could not stop but had to #keepsmiling😊! And whenever I remember the scene I am made to smile!!! No, I didn’t feel like doing anything except to #keepsmiling.
There’s more to this observed incident that I will share later! Have you ever had such an experience to #keepsmiling? Would you smile if you were in my place? Just curious 🤔
Job, family, friends, relatives, paying bills, buying vegetables, meeting doctors, do this, do that, on and on and on… It’s very natural to feel overwhelmed at times with such a long list.
Breeeathe and just sleep off! Yes, I am not saying to just do it. Instead just leave it.
when you wake up everything will stay! no earthquake is to appear if you sleep. But you will be able to #keepsmiling. 😁
