Intangible happiness…

There is an odd sense of belonging in dis cyberspace. Few months back, I was a neophyte in this arena, and now I have an identity of my own. I googled “Rajat Mishra” d other day and right on d first page there were two entries of mine :) ... It gave an intangible sense of beatitude and contentment. Then I googled another keyword “rajat_nda” (my pseudo name everywhere) and there were 10 full pages dedicated to me, mainly on www.pagalguy.com (my mentor)…

I think there are two kinds of ‘small things’ in life:
1. Small things in life…,hardly matter !!
2. Small things in life…, that matter !!

As of now, this comes in the second category...Maybe three years from now it would fall back to the first...But the point is: This supposedly ‘small thing’ made me happy!! Yesterday one of my (newly-made) friends working in Google told me to google “Rajat Mishra” or “Rajat’s life”…
Lo and behold!!
There my blog was... “sponsored by google”...the very first link...My very own ‘30 secs of fame’ (actually 24hrs!!)

Life is iffy, agreed and we may not write our own destiny, but materializing it is in our own hands. That being the case, and the kind of pressure all of us work in, if a small incident gets that innocent unconscious smile on our face…nothing like it !!

Ciao life!!

Rajat,
You are right. The small things that make you happy today might hardly matter tomorrow. Whats important is that we live in the moment and make the full of happiness that we got today.

Hey rajat,

I have been reading ur blogs & let me tell u...u r a source of inspiration to many including me. I have realised one thing from all the ups & downs of my life till now...its not the big things which give u happiness...its the small things of life which give u happiness & acumen to form a happy living !!!

So whenever ther ei s unhappiness, we need to remember :
" its the darkest just before the dawn"

So,lets face the darkness of unhappiness if we wish seek for morning happiness

Take care

Very well said, @Sumant, n @Anonymus....thanx for those words...
The blatant fact is that we all know about this...but unless we keep saying this to ourselves, d fact gets subdued...
"Live today n appreciate wht life has given us in hand..."
ciao everybody
