Change for the Better

Happy Friday, Folks.

I received a beautiful write-up on WhatsApp, which brightened my day. So, I thought of sharing it with all of you…

Yes, I am changing…
After loving my parents, my siblings, my spouse, my children, my friends, now I have started loving myself.

Yes, I am changing…
I just realised that I am not “Atlas”. The world does not rest on my shoulders.

Yes, I am changing…
I now stopped bargaining with vegetables & fruits vendors. After all, a few rupees more is not going to burn a hole in my pocket but it might help the poor fellow save for his daughter’s school fees.

Yes, I am changing…
I pay the taxi driver without waiting for the change. The extra money might bring a smile on his face. After all he is toiling much harder for a living than me.

Yes, I am changing…
I stopped telling the elderly that they’ve already narrated that story many times. After all, the story makes them walk down the memory lane & relive the past.

Yes, I am changing…
I’ve learnt not to correct people even when I know they are wrong. After all, the onus of making everyone perfect is not on me. Peace is more precious than perfection.

Yes, I am changing…
I give compliments freely & generously. After all it’s a mood enhancer not only for the recipient, but also for me.

Yes, I am changing…
I’ve learnt not to bother about a crease or a spot on my shirt. After all, personality speaks louder than appearances.

Yes, I am changing…
I walk away from people who don’t value me. After all, they might not know my worth, but I do.

Yes, I am changing…
I remain cool when someone plays dirty politics to outrun me in the rat race. After all, I am not a rat & neither am I in any race.

Yes, I am changing…
I am learning not to be embarrassed by my emotions. After all, it’s my emotions that make me human.

Yes, I am changing…
I’ve learnt to live each day as if it’s the last. After all, it might be the last.

Yes, I am changing…
I am doing what makes me happy. After all, I am responsible for my happiness, and I owe it to me.

  1. After I initially commented I clicked the -Notify me when new feedback are added- checkbox and now each time a remark is added I get 4 emails with the identical comment. Is there any way you possibly can take away me from that service? Thanks!

    1. Hi Neville Ketola, I understand that getting 4 emails per comment can be annoying! That said, I see that this is your first comment on my Blog Site. I checked the Blog site’s followers / subscribers list and I don’t see your name. Beyond these checks, I am not sure how else WordPress’s notification mechanism works; apart from WordPress’s built-in settings, we haven’t changed anything. Here’s wishing you safety, health, and happiness…
