Don’t curse life but join the bits and pieces of enjoyments making a long chain of happiness[This thread is the winner of the April 2017 topic based TOW contest]
Even a desert has its Oasis. Those who complain their life is a one big misery are unconsciously telling lie. Even their life has many occasions of happiness and enjoyment- may be in bits and pieces.
I recall a very interesting and enjoyable hobby girls used to have during my childhood days. Those days girls and women used to wear glass bangles. For any local festival they used to buy a couple of dozen of glass bangles of various colour and design. The sounds of the bangles colliding when the girls moved around was unique. The mirth and laughter of the girls combined with the special sounds of the glass bangles made the atmosphere itself lively and happy.
Naturally, the bangles used to break on every hit on the walls or mutual collisions and falls while playing etc. The girls used to feel sad for a moment. But then they get used to it.
They collected the bits and pieces of the broken bangles. Then during leisure they used to join two or more pieces using a lamp flame. By that they used to make chains and hang them on photos and door frames to have nice decorative hangings. The colour combination and size and their artistry made them really appealing. Even those hangings used to make sounds from breeze or someone moved or touched, creating a lively sound. That used to make the homes lively and alert also.
The moral is, let us not take life as a single block and worry about the losses, but join the small small bits and pieces of happy moments and make a collage or chain of happiness and enjoy.
