Small Moments Bring Big Joy

They are the smallest of moments that brings in big pleasures in everybody’s life. Even Bill Gates said that he felt complete only when his new born daughter Jennifer smiled at him. Being a rover myself, my mum always used to tell me to buy some small thing to people that I love, since it would mean that I thought of them at that moment. I did listen to her only when I was finishing my college.

The topic of this post was a similar thing that happened to me, in the receiving end. Last week my DBA colleagues attended the IBM Information On Demand conference in Anaheim California. Each one bought either a db2 magazine or some book from the conference for me. Now I have 5 new books. I should start to look into them. People, if you want to express your love or like to someone, do buy them a small gift or help them in a small way, but with all your heart.

Strength blossoms after every failure!

Thats what I’ve found out of late.. strength blossoms after every failures, but hey, it doesnt do itself.. There are two choices after each failure.. you throw your ideologies on the failure and use it as a reason to lose, or you learn what lead to the failure and correct it, know more about life, and grow positive..
I always thought God let me down, but looking back, I’ve learnt from the mistakes and become a better person. Love, friendships, work, study, there were difficulties in everything, but a little faith and true prayer did save me from failing!

When doubts haunt me, when disappointments stare me in the face, and I see not one ray of hope on the horizon, I turn to Bhagavad-gita and find a verse to comfort me; and I immediately begin to smile in the midst of overwhelming sorrow.
