When I started, I knew everything.

After gaining some experience, I realized I didn’t know everything.

With further experience, I realized I didn’t need to know everything.

Now I know, that whatever I know is just my point of view at this moment and may not be true.

To be a change, you have to be ready to change.

I bought a 2 BHK apartment and spent all my energy and effort to decorate it.

Then I went to my friend’s house and got impressed seeing their 3 BHK apartment. I worked hard to buy a bigger house and worked harder to decorate and to buy furniture for the 3rd room.

Recently I visited my relative’s house that was a 4 BHK apartment and I liked the idea of a bigger kitchen, bigger living room, and extra room. Now I am going to work hard to first buy the bigger place and then to fill up the bigger place.

I decided to be part of a women empowerment program, that recently started in my office.

I called my wife at home, telling her to not cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner for me for the next month as I will be holdings meetings on women empowerment at my office and food will be provided in the office.

She said to me annoyingly that our daughter’s final exams are coming in 2 weeks and I promised to teach her maths while she (mother) will teach all other subjects. I just raised my voice and told her “I am doing all this for them only, programs like Women Empowerment happening at such a grand scale in MNCs will help her only in the future, as we will give her a better future.”

P.S: This is a sarcastic post

My daughter was shouting at our house-help that she didn’t cook her favorite dish. And I tried to teach her to be kind to everyone and not misbehave no matter whom.

While I was teaching her good behavior, her grandmother interfered and started saying that my daughter is asking for her favorite dish for the last 2 days.

I got so annoyed at my mother (grandmother) and told her clearly in loud voice, not to interfere when I am teaching my daughter to be kind. If she will not learn it now, she will never learn.

My mother just went to her room silently.

Instead of running after money, I decided to run after happiness.

I am happy now, but now I want to be happier. Oh no, I am just in a different rat race now.

What I need to understand is that wherever and whatever I am, I am enough, happiness is now or never.

I do not have to stop chasing my dreams, but have to be just happy about what I am doing right now.

If chasing dreams don’t give me happiness, once I will have my dream come true, then also I will not be happy.

Happiness is a choice.
