Small, little big things of life

"Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.”
—Robert Brault
Had this quote forwarded yesterday and at what an apt time!

What I never believed in is:
  • trying to appease people so that your selfish needs are met
  • trying to comply just because you need to look good in people's eyes
  • compete: I am what I am , comfortable in my skin
  • consider materialistic things important
If I  was sure of one thing from my childhood, it was the importance of love and relationships.

All that I ever cared for is the perceptive unsaid love one has for one's own. Of love that gifts you what you need and not what they think you need, of love that knows exactly what you want, like, of what pains you and what gives you joy.

My birthday this time was exactly this: gifts of no great value, money-wise. They were all a series of small gestures, very thoughtful and which could come only on being very perceptive of the needs of people we love, things not expressed or asked but given, each one bringing that twinkle to the eye and a smile to the face.
That was my son who made this birthday so special.

I know you had been busy and is that why your posts have become less?

Thank you for remembering and reminding, Rama :)
The work front has been hectic and I miss writing a lot!
Hope to be more regular, henceforth.
