DAY 2 : THE NOVEMBER HAPPINESS CHALLENGE
Hi everyone, I hope your Monday was productive and happiness filled. The comments and views I got yesterday were quite huge and I have come to realize that we all really do need to check ourselves more from time to time. I am glad you, my readers are actively participating in this and I really hope it would be helpful to us all at the end of the Challenge.
So many of us have completely fallen into particular daily routines that we tend to forget what really matters. We ignore people who care about us (albeit unconsciously) and take favors for granted. I had this talk with a friend sometime ago and he made me understand that having parents who take care of us and go the extra mile to make us happy is not a right, It is a Privilege: a huge one at that. We really cannot comprehend the kind of things our parents go through to give us a good life and make sure we don’t lack the essentials.
We are rude to them sometimes and we sometimes make them feel like they are less of who they are. Some of us go as far as taking our friends and acquaintances over them (Yes, it’s that bad). Can we take a moment and reflect on this? Be grateful to God for giving us the blessing of having parents who care about us (Dead and Alive!). Some of us have lost one or both parents but we can never forget the indelible mark they left in our lives. Can we endeavor to be more subtle and kind in our dealings with them? Do the little things? Buy things for them randomly? e.t.c. No matter how wealthy our parents are, whatever we buy for them would be among their most priced possessions. How often do we pray for them? How many times have we dedicated just a time in our heads to seek God’s blessings for them? These questions require answers.!
Now to the task for today,
- Call your parents/Guardians
- Tell them :”Thank you for everything”
- Pray for them
- Tell them you love them
- Give us a feedback!
I didn’t forget my Tuesday smile , here it is ( I know the rest of my head is cut from the picture. Sorry, focus on the smile and my big nose. lol )
I’ll be back. BOS!
