You know what I really like about the Kaise Mujhe song? The guy fully realizes how lucky he is to have a girl like that in his life, one who is so selfless, always eager to extend help to anyone who might need it.
Too often in life, we don't realize how luck we are in a lot of ways. One of my earliest posts was also on a similar theme.
How many of us remember to be thankful for the fact that we have never had to go hungry? That we have always had a roof over our heads? Clean water to drink. A blanket to keep us warm in cold weather. At least a fan to keep us cool in the heat. There are people who are deprived of all this, who die of extreme cold or of extreme heat. Who die of hunger or malnutrition.
I am thankful for the fact that all my limbs and my mind is in working order. (Guys, you dare not make jokes about this. This is a serious post.) For the fact that I have had both my parents by my side all through my life. That I live in a country where I have the freedom of speech, of creative expression. That I have quite a few amazing friends, some of whom have been by my side for significantly more than a decade and continue to be there for me, when I need them, when I don't admit that I need them, and even when I don't need them, but want them to be around. I am lucky that I acquired a decent education and a respectable job. I am a lot more fortunate than a lot of people in this world, and I will, henceforth, remind myself of all this every time I feel deprived of luck or happiness.
