We are all a little bit broken

We are all a little bit damaged

We are all a little bit tainted. 

We all seek solace

Seek relief

Seek comfort.

But, in our quest to find “that place” where we can enjoy those things someday, we tend to lose our grip on the “now”,  the “present”, the reality. 

We condition ourselves to overlook the simple joys of life. We get so used to the rut that we forget to appreciate that even everyday things can be special. Well, sometimes. 

Sometimes, even mundane things can be the sources of happiness. But we have a goal in mind. So, we don’t pay attention to such trivial things. 

Perspectives

All my life, I’ve been pretty good at understanding other people’s perspectives. I had learnt to use my observation to connect people’s behaviours with their thought processes in my formative years (I had a lot of time, I wasn’t allowed to go outside and I was an observant child). Using this, I’ve predicted actions that have come true more than most of the time. Yes, I’ve observed that too.  🙂
