We, human beings, have the tendency of grumbling over a lot of things we do not possess and for the many things we cannot do. We are absolutely ungrateful in all our actions and never reach the stage of complete contentment .We are always engrossed in petty issues, never realizing how we are losing every single second of the precious life that we are bestowed upon by the Power above us.
In the journey we go through, we take for granted a lot of things that we possess and a lot of other things that are present in our surroundings.
The first and the foremost is this life that we have; we never realize how blessed we are to have a human life .We could have been born like any other species leading a life in filth or any other adverse environment.
The second is the situation we are born in, it could have been a place; where even today,people do not have the basic amenities, proper sanitation ,food, medical facilities & a lot of other essentials.We should never think that people born in those conditions are different than us; it’s just that we are plain lucky.
The third most important element that we all tend to forget is the abundance that nature is showering on us; natural light, air, greenery and water that it is giving us for free. The absence of even one of these will make our life difficult, but we are still impercipient & oblivious to all those gifts.
The fourth element is our ability to lead a healthy life without any physical disability, because we never realize how even a smallest flaw in our physical condition could make living so difficult. Have we ever imagined a life without the power to see , hear ,talk, walk ,breathe or eat properly ?In the night, try to close your eyes for few seconds just to understand the feeling of a blind person. How does one feels when he/she cannot hear all the amazing sounds in the environment, cannot laugh at the jokes or enjoy a good music? It is a terrible feeling. How in spite of having everything one cannot enjoy the food ? How a physical disability can restrict the movements & restricts an individual from leading a normal life?
We never visualize the fact that without these physical attributes we would have missed on so much that we are bequeathed upon. So never take for granted all that nature has given us, be thankful and show your gratitude towards the Almighty with each passing breath.
