“When the door of opportunity of your storehouse opens for you, let faith and hope enter first. When your faith leads the way, you will locate the source of your hidden treasures.”
― Israelmore Ayivor
If someone were to ask me to write about a treasure I have, three years back I would laugh in self-pity and say nothing while I had everything and hadn’t seen. You need to be in the dark to appreciate the light and when that happened I accepted it with grace, fought and still learning from it.
So among the many treasures, I possess, the ability to derive pleasure from small things is my latest pleasure. It is one of the most underrated pleasure but trust me very important to stay afloat and remain positive at bad times.
I have come to realize that real happiness isn’t in large or big things. It is in those simple pleasures of life that you have sometimes taken for granted, those long soothing talks with your mom or the coffee break with your colleague or the late night walk with your partner to cheer you up or those healthy delicious packed tiffin boxes from home. These pleasures you miss only when you are deprived of it. Maybe that is the beauty of this newly found treasure, you find new meaning and its real value only after you lose it.
I am content with this treasure, help it let me move ahead, love my dear ones fiercely, love myself a little more, be a kid with a kid, let the smell of jasmine know its presence. Life isn’t all colourful but is certainly beautiful with this treasure.
