Today the morning things were not happening the way it usually do, the paperwalla gave paper really late almost at the time when I was on the verge of getting ready for my work, then suddenly my cook called me up (to make my blood boil) that she’s not coming today but then something really interesting was waiting for me, the real icing on the cake & that was my driver who’s stuck in the hospital following a relative’s ailment confirmed me his failure to appear when expected.

Then as I have a habit of reading something valuable in the morning following that ritual I took out a book from the rack snacking on a fruit ( my saver in the morning ) and to my sheer surprise when I abruptly opened a page from the book it was written there “PATIENCE TAKES YOU A LONG WAY” then I realised in my heart of hearts that God has his ways of showing us the path and answering our queries as in my mind I was getting restless facing all these ordeals back to back and as a human having the habit of  asking why this / why that.

So, a thought popped up in my mind that can’t we be just tolerant, can’t we be uncomplaining, when can we stop asking why me ?? Why me ?? Stop bothering about yourself and just turn the table, when we do that we become sane more humane and start considering other’s problems, their miseries and agonies.

Let’s view the situation from a different perspective if my cook didn’t come then we could plan for eating in a restaurant or opt for a home delivery, so it would be a break from eating homemade food and just to tickle our taste buds it might be a good option or even a more creative one for all of us to put our culinary skills to test and hit the kitchen floor to cook some interesting dishes where taste might be secondary but enjoyment should be the buzzword.

Then shifting our focus from the above one to the second one where the paperwalla didn’t deliver paper on time and my morning tea missed it more than me, I should feel blessed as once a while we must disengage ourselves from all sorts of worldly affairs like Donald Trump will attend a gala dinner at the Sheraton in Da Nang ( Vietnam) or Delhi Govt. looks to hire more buses to support odd-even scheme or even for that matter Ambani nextgen unveil Jio’s new gambit. All these can be exchanged with a good hearty laugh complimented by really nice chit chats among family members which would have a positive effect on our mind throughout the day and a day here or a day there missing daily rituals like reading newspaper won’t make us less intelligent and do any harm.

And the best thing that could happen with me to take that mushy drive with my better half in the absence of my driver. We even could get more innovative in finding out options rather take a dive in the pool of creativity of having just so many of them and when these OLA & UBER’s services we are going to test, when an open air ride in my bike I would take and when even my old autowalla would come for a rescue so, there’s no end to options.. we just have to change our perspective .. Why get wired in those daily chores and do the same thing time and again, these ordeal and oddities also come with loads of solutions to our age old thinking pattern. They completely shake us up, put our world upside down just to get the best out of us, to make us more creative in dealing with our life.

When we weigh a situation from different perspective and faculties of our brain putting our thinking hat we actually open up ourselves to ample solutions and start being creative in due course of time.

So, today I learned some lessons though in a harder way but learned it finally and that would take me a long way.. At least I believe it will..
