Some are still Good!

23 Jul

Few years ago, I got an email from one of my transcendentalist friend which was although just another forwarded mail but was beautiful and has stayed in my heart since then. Amongst other messages that it contained, one was MAKE A GRATITUDE LIST. It has been on my mind for long, but time couldn’t be better than now. Coursing through a rough patch in life, it could actually help to see what i have or what i have received over the years. So, here it is:

  1. Mr. D: The first person that deserves mention is my friend D. The one who actually sent me that mail. Before i met him four years ago, i was all studies and my then boyfriend. He on the other hand had a vision. A vision that really influenced me. He was a aspiring student enterpreneur then and now owns a greeting card company and an online magazine. I learned from him to live my dreams howsoever impossible they seem.
  2. Mr. X: Next in line stands Mr. X, who is none other than my ex boyfriend. Yeah he turned out to be a jerk in due course of time. But i owe him the fact that i regained myself. He was a little less selfless (i’m just being polite), which made me think about myself and interview my soul for the first time in my adult life.
  3. Mrs. Bunny: She was my mess incharge in hostel. I don’t even know her real name. I called her Bunny. She is one lady that stood by me all the ups and downs of my college days. Be it she-bitched-about-me tears or i-have-an-exam-tomorrow-i-will-fail depression, she was always there.  One hell of a lady, she single handedly brought up her 3 children and a husband who was never much help. I loved her fighting spirit and her patience. I owe a lot to her.
  4. My brother: When i was a kid. nobody taught me how to ride a bicycle. I would take it on road early morning and try myself. That one morning I was riding it from one side, not having enough confidence to cross my leg to the other. My little brother who was watching me said,”Why don’t you just cross your legs and sit on it?” And that made me do it. He knows my fears & weaknesses better than anyone else (he’s very liberal mentioning it everytime he should and shouldn’t) and makes me face it. He’s a menace!

Of course this list is spread over a long temporal scale, but i tell you, make a daily gratitude list. Add those small favours that people do for you everyday. And you’ll feel good. Moreover when you meet bad people in life you can look at that list and say, “What if most of the world is bad, SOME ARE STILL GOOD!”

    I’ve tried to write gratitude more than once. I do not know where to start.
