This thought did not come to me, but to my daughter.
We are at the cinema and I was grumpy. Something was not right. First there was a huge queue to enter the mall, then I banged into a stranger and escaped a fall but could not help the cold coffee spilling on my new dress.
At the pop corn station I was asking for tissues to soak up the coffee, trying frantically to hide its stains but in vain. I was complaining.
Sparsh my older one, took out his phone to take a selfie, and declared SMILE and instantly all our eyes lit up and my frowns took an upward curve and fell again after the picture was taken.
Anaya was probably observing me, and instantly said ” when you can smile for the camera, when why not for yourself ?” I stood there dumbstruck. Threw away the tissue and enjoyed the movie instead.
Sometimes life’s little things have so much to convey. Seldom we pay attention to the mundane and prevent it from being extra ordinary. Happiness is paying attention to these little things and loving them fully.
Happiness and sunshine 🌼
