Happy Togetherness

Sitting in the balcony, watching sunset together and sipping their warm cup of tea...the lovely old couple.  She coughs....he asks if she has taken her medicine. She giggles....he brings the medicine....teases her...both of them laughs. She rests her head on his shoulder.

They are happy, they have lived a fulfilled and joyful complaints
from regret.

Married since last 35 years, enjoyed every bit of blissful life. Had kids, raised them well. Have a lovely family and a beautiful nest.

Yes, they too have gone through all ups and downs of life. 

The most beautiful thing they possess is their togetherness.

Love so soothing, love so simple !!

Happy and Content..

I can't forget this story from my childhood by Leo Tolstoy. 
A man was given an opportunity to acquire as much land as he walks through the whole day and returns back before sunset. He kept running, exhausted himself to death, out of greed to get more and more. Of course, he touched the start point before sunset, he acquired acres and acres of land, he acquired all the wealth he desired. Pity, he was then buried under just 6 feet long land. "How much land does a man need?"

Life is like this single day...we keep running after materialistic things...try to control life...rarely sits back to enjoy it...
What is the point in earning wealth if we are not able to enjoy it?
In the end it is never about how much money you made...nor it's about the position you reached in your career. Money and career are instruments for a happy life...but they are not synonymous to happiness...

One can buy number of houses........but these are only bricks and mortar....there is only one home for a person...a happy home with a loving family.

I remember my childhood games...the fun I had with friends and siblings...I cherish those memories...I don't even remember which game I won and which I lost....The happiness is not for winning, the happiness is for good memories. We tend to forget this as we grow up. We create money, we create success, concentrating less on creating happiness and memories.

We impart education to our generations to earn their living and to excel in their career.....Definitely,we are doing the right thing...but hope we could tell them more often that "The Goal is to enjoy and to live a happy life !!"
