Enjoy little things in life!






(Image taken from here)

Come out of cocoon
of busy life, Realize
zest of little things!

Little things like smile
can make someone's day special;
Smile and let smile!

One day, while I was traveling in train, I saw three kids waving...At first, I thought...."Should I wave back?...I might look stupid if I wave to some random strangers!"....Then suddenly, I got a thought of one story which I studied in my tenth class.....The lesson was "The night at the hotel" written by Siegfried Lenz...It's a very beautiful and touching story ...You can read the summary of the story here.....In that story, the character of sensitive little boy came to my mind. It changed my mind, without any hesitation, I waved back to them....One boy among them noticed that and said to the other two...."Hey look!...Over there!!...Yay!!..Someone waved us back!!"...with so much excitement and happiness....I could really see that on their faces though the view was bit far from the moving train.....I captured this scene in my eyes and locked in my heart.....Whenever I recollect it...It really makes me smile...:)
It is so true that happiness lies in little things...

Little things do matter a lot. In today's world, we try to look for happiness in bigger things, avoiding the actual pleasure. I love your background music. Gives a very soothing effect to your blog :)
