My dear brothers, sisters and friends,
What is happiness? It is a state of being. Too many people worry about what would happen tomorrow and a lot many people worry about what happened yesterday that they forget to live in the present and miss the joy that is there to take for now. When you live in the moment, there is just today. No worries of tomorrow or the pains of the past. You don’t have control of what happened yesterday and if we do our job today right, tomorrow’s problems will be taken care of. That said let us take a look at what we have for the week…
Mother’s Day [May 12]
I love you, mom. Yes, that’s what I want to hear all around the world in all households. There shouldn’t be a child who doesn’t utter those words on this beautiful day. A day dedicated for mothers. The individuals who work hard and never get credited for their hard work. Today is the day to acknowledge as there is no way you can reward them with anything and that’s because there isn’t a gift that can equal their deed. It is impossible. Well, they never ask for anything anyway.
That doesn’t mean today too we will take them for granted. Today, we will celebrate our mothers and their unconditional love. Make an oath to say I love you, mom on this day.
Spread the word. Happy Mother’s Day!
Teacher Day [May 7]
After mother, there is the teacher! This is another individual who rarely gets credit. We hate most of them while at school, but by the time we realize how they have shaped our lives and start to love them, we don’t see them anymore. Such a thankless job they have.
They have to put some sense in our little heads and try to mould us to be what we are today and we hate them for it and those we love too, we let go once we grow up.
We are too busy, you see! There should be a sense of shame within us that should gnaw at our conscience if we do not acknowledge the efforts of these teachers and their role in making us successful.
We can do that today, <astyle=”text-decoration: none;” href=”http://www.123greetings.com/events/teachers_day/”>Teacher Day, and make them feel special.
If you notice what we lack in the above two instances towards mother and teacher is the sense of gratitude. We do not thank enough. We are a spoilt lot. We get things the way we wanted. We move along quite well with the world that is fake and distant, but we never stand for a moment to acknowledge the selfless deeds of amazing individuals who have helped us all through.
Thanklessness is a crime. Innocence is fine, but ignorance is a devil.
We know whom to thank, but we don’t make time to do it and that is unforgivable. Find time and thank those who deserve.
Make it a point to start your day with pleasant gesture – a good morning wish to everyone whom you care for, a good day wish too along with a bright smile. Start your day like that and see what happens. Make sure to pat the back of a subordinate and make him feel special and he will be raring to go and his success will define yours.
Such small gestures carry positive vibes and infect one and all that you come in contact with.
Isn’t that the way it should be?
