There are some small and unexpected things, which makes you feel proud of yourself. This happened, some time back. It was a bright sunday, a lazy one rather, where the most of day goes in eating, sleeping, watching TV and some other stuff.
Every sunday evening, I go out to meet my friends near place called Sankey tank in Bangalore, one of the best places to hang out with your friends in the heart of Bangalore. On the morning of that Sunday, I had washed my bike (Yep, my beautiful looking bike). I do wash it regularly and that makes me happy.
In the evening on my way to meet my friends, I had to fill petrol, so went to the petrol bunk. There the person filling the petrol came and said namaste to me and I kindly acknowledged it with a smile. While he was filling the petrol, saw my bike and asked me with smile, ‘Sir, Is this your new bike…?’ I replied, no this is not a new one but today morning I washed it. He said, it looks like a brand new bike. I felt so happy, he really made my day that day because I spend a reasonable amount of time to ensure my bike is clean and I take good care of it. I don’t expect any appreciation, but when it comes, I feel happy. The drive from the petrol bunk was one of the best till date, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was feeling proud of myself.
It may not be a great thing, but sometimes even small praises means a lot, no matter whoever compliments you. So, no matter what, how small a praise, just enjoy it with a big heart and the best part is, it can come from anywhere. This is called the real beauty of life, small things making a big impact. So whenever you are feeling sad or bored or something similar, just cherish those small moments when someone had made you really happy and proud.
