“Things which matter most should never be at the mercy of things which matter the least –
Johann Wolfganag von Geothe
How many times do you think about what your priorities are when you wake up in the morning?
In fact,never. Even if we do think about our activities that will be taking place during the course of the day, we seldom prioritise them. Going to class without having breakfast since you woke up late, waking up late since you were smart enough to trust your waking skills,sleeping in class since you are tired , tired cause the poor tummy has been deprived of food. The cycle goes on and on thereby churning your day into an unproductive one. Good Lord! Why do we always complicate things?
When I talk about priorities I don’t mean salary, job, food clothing shelter and the like. Here I am trying to emphasise on the little things we give unnecessary importance in the name of attention, peer pressure and of course to prove the unique ability to “fit in”. Prove to whom?
All the 7 billion people in the world since you see, they all came together to play the role of SUPERMAN whenever you called out to them!
Come on is it worth all the pain?
Got less marks in a test? Ate an extra cream biscuit? The chick next door didn’t wave back at you today?- Oh no my life has gone for a toss!!
Yeah right! Imagine another scenario where you think about whether those extra two marks really do matter or not. Oh yes it does. After all when I finally leave for my heavenly abode I shall carry it with me squeezing that 2 extra marks into the coffin that can barley accommodate me!
Gobbled down an extra helping and now feeling guilty?
On the other hand try eating with an open mind thinking nothing is going to affect me. The feeling is refreshing I say!
We might not know it but teeny weeny things affect us through the course of the day. Our minds are sometimes so cluttered and clogged we really can’t point a finger at what actually gives us happiness. For us happiness is what we get around a 2 metre radius.
Happiness is actually a state of mind, influenced by us and us alone.
