And we can’t live without ….
I am sure you all must have a story, where you did a small thing for someone else selflessly, and it made you feel something you can’t explain till date. I have felt it myself. Once, I was out with my friends, we were standing outside a shopping mall waiting for another friend. Suddenly, a little girl came upto me. I presumed she’s going to ask for money or food because her mother and her siblings were sitting on the ground nearby. But she didn’t. She asked for a tiny hair clip that I was wearing. She pointed at my hair and asked for it. Just like that. It made me smile. I gave the clip to her and she went off. No money, no food. Just the hair clip. She went back to her family. Normal. But for me, it was a memory of a lifetime. The emotions I felt in that moment are more precious to me. It was a little thing, happened in fraction of seconds, yet gave me the happiness many hours couldn’t give.
I ask you to remember incidents like these in your life and how it affected you. You can share them in the comments or directly to me by going to https://tarunified.com/contact/ I would love to know all the stories and would share my favourite ones. This is something that money can’t buy.
It was a realisation that we don’t feel happy all the time. We can’t. We also can never find therapy in shopping or eating out. The bad days should be dealt with how the good days are- by living them. Amidst all these motivational talks, self-help videos and books, there is a lack of sense and logic. Not entirely, because sometimes you need someone to push you and that’s when these content creators help but what happens when even their words aren’t enough? Even the motivation won’t help you to find something what you’re looking for.
I am sharing a link to a video below, because everyone deserves the emotions I felt after watching this. Everyone deserves to feel like the guy felt in the video by doing all the things he did. He did it out of love, kindness, compassion and empathy. These emotions are human’s biggest assets. Not the assets we keep investing in, in the stock markets or real estate or even buying expensive things to keep you sane. Those are long-term liabilities. They can never make us happy. (Sometimes it feels good to not being able to afford such stuff). The assets that money can’t buy. Our emotions are the assets we must invest in everyday.
Don’t forget to share your story. I am looking forward to it.
Thanks for reading. Namaste.
