the little things called smiles

Thursday, October 27, 2011
















amidst the frenzy of diwali cleaning and shopping and everything else, it suddenly occurred to me what a subjective thing pleasure is. two people, in the same state of mind, both happy and yet they can be happy about different things. yes, we have heard a lot about perspective and this is similar but i feel, mostly these little things go unnoticed. in most cases, its the little things that bring a smile to our faces and those are the ones that are the most diverse. they define happiness for man and their meaning changes every second. and yet, they will always be these little things that will make you smile, no matter what- smell of food from kitchen when you are hungry, phone ring when you feel lonely, the deserted trail in the central park that no one seems to notice but strangely makes you smile always- and the list goes on.
no one ignores these little things cuz they bring those involuntary smiles, the smiles of the most genuine nature that carve themselves, with no effort required. these are the genuine curves of lips that are not a mask to hide another emotion or a brave face to show to the world, they are those little cherubic gifts that come to you in your moments with yourself, whether you are alone or not, in the moments when you are thinking just of you and nothing else.
take a moment and think about these little things around you that have always brought those lovely smiles on and you probably didn't realize.
i just realized a lot of things on my list and i was honestly surprised with some of the things :P you'd be too if you realized things like paper bags, sign of sale at my favorite shoe store, sight of wet ink on paper, get the same color with a friend on a 'super jinx', coffee mugs and many more can make you smile :)
go ahead. make your list. you'd be amazed too. and at end of the list, add another thing 'the list' cuz, trust me, you are sure to smile everytime you looked at the list. 

5 cheers:
