J for Joy - Enjoy the little things in life

In today’s post, I would like to highlight that while we aspire to reach higher echelon in life on a personal front or have the altruistic dreams for the social sector, we need to take breaks and experience joy in the little things in life.  This is very essential for a longer run and inability to enjoy sweet little moments sucks out the energy within us leaving a tired soul that can only do this much.

Keeping this philosophy in mind, on a lighter vein, I would also want you take a break from painstaking (!!!J) browsing to enjoy few extra seconds saved on my pages.

Do ponder on the below few lines before you move on.
                             
                                                    Dare to dream big
                                                                                Follow your mind,
                                                                Take a break today,
                                                                                Unshackle (from) the grind.

                                                                 Do not shy away      
                                                                                To hold onto your ideals,
                                                                  Do not be afraid and stop not
                                                                                In the face of foibles.

                                                                  Smile at the small joys,
                                                                                The life offers every day,
                                                                  Shimmering dew drops on the swaying grass
                                                                                The silver of the silver moon’s ray.

                                                                    Accept gladly what life has given,
                                                                                And be good & kind to others,
                                                                    A better world will surely be,
                                                                                God willing, not afar.
