Blogchatter A2Z Challenge Day 22 -Value what you have

If I start on a dramatic note then I would say, Bhag daud bhari ye zindagi jisme rukna mana hai, thakna mana hai, aise mein koi choti choti cheezo par kaise dhyan de?

On the 22nd day of Blogchatter A2Z Challenge, I bring to you another way out of my #26days26ways of self-awareness. — VALUE WHAT YOU HAVE BEFORE IT’S GONE.

Especially things which are available for free and in abundance, BREATH being the primary source of survival, how many of us consciously breathe in and breath out? I guess none. We do not even pay attention to it, because it’s happening continuously without any effort.

Likewise, there are so many things which we should value in our lives and be grateful for their mere presence in our life. As you never know what time will bring to us and the things we have with us in the present will become just a thing of memory.

Our primary focus is mainly on materialistic things which bring us momentary pleasures but nurturing and strengthening what we already have gives us a very beautiful life.

“You only know what you’ve got when it’s gone.” 

What should we value?

  • A mother’s unconditional love for her child
  • A father’s hard earned money and his life which he completely surrenders for his family
  • Those innumerable and illogical your kids ask you, as they will soon start searching for the answers on Mr.Google
  • A husband who is faithful and caring
  • A wife who is loving and there for you
  • Your sound mind
  • Your healthy body
  • The food you get to eat daily 

How do we do that?

  • Stop comparing your life with others
  • Express gratitude for what you have, it changes everything
  • Appreciate more, reciprocate more
  • Enjoy every little moment with your friends and family members

What counts in the end is the wonderful moments you share with your family, beloved ones, and friends. Enjoy and pay attention to these beautiful moments, even if they have become totally ordinary to you and learn to appreciate the value of these moments.

“When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the morning light, for your life and strength. Give thanks for your food and the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies within yourself” – Tecumseh

I recommend:

The Magic – Rhonda Byrne

This book changed my perspective about life, I have read it twice and at the end of 2018, I gave myself a writing challenge of 28 days, as the book consists of 28 chapters.

Every day I use to read each chapter and share the summary of the chapter on my blog. Hence I strongly urge all of you to read it once and practice some exercise the book prescribes, because to experience the magic of gratitude in your life, you have to practice it.  Remember the Magic

I hope you find this way very simple and applicable for a beautiful life ahead 🙂

Much love and much gratitude

Priyanka

  1. Beautiful Priyanka. I will tell you my biggest weakness, I value most of my precious things and people but over the time I have forgotten to take a pause and appreciate them. Yes I do feel grateful for everything when I talk to myself but not in words

  2. Agree with you fully. Very useful tips. Books like The Secret, Magic, are the books to be read again n again atleast once a year. Attitude of Gratitude is really magical and we should practice it for our own peace of mind.

  3. Totally agree Priyanka. We often don’t value the things or people we have in life and by the time we realize their value, it’s too late. We should learn to Count our blessings.

  4. It’s actually true that in all the hustle and bustle of life and its complexities, we forget to appreciate and relish what is readily available. Ignoring what is free and giving more importance to things which make us sweat has become the common norm. No wonder you had the clarity to bring this up as a reminder which reflects in your calm, composed and balanced approach towards the topic. Haven’t read the mentioned book but will definitely now. Moreover the logics and techniques shared are a welcome reminder to set things straight. Very well articulated and presented at the same time.

  5. The Magic sounds like a good book. And you know things like a mother’s love or a wife’s love are things I have taken for granted all my life. My mother has always been there for me and my wife has stood like a rock since our courtship days. And your post made me reflect on the fact that I don’t think much about these things nowadays. A great post.

  6. True, one should appreciate the abundant beauty around you, value the wonderful and precious gift called life and be grateful for each and every small thing that you are blessed with. Great post on showing how grateful you are!

  7. I went through a long spell of ill health recently. It was only then that I realised how I had been taking my health for granted. This post is so well timed and a reminder we could do with. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Another thing we should really be thankful for is good health.
    I haven’t read The Magic but I loved The Secret and still believe it’s simple philosophy. I think I’ll pick The Magic up soon.

  9. You have posted an important message Priyanka..
    We often don’t care small things that happen with us everyday.. we realize so late that those small things kept us running our life peacefully..
    I have a look at the book you suggested..

  10. Yes there is a lot of things in life to be grateful about. If breath was as hard earned as fathers income, may be everyone would pay attention to. Sadly, air is free, breathing is spontaneous, no one pays any attention.

  11. Count your blessings and be grateful for what you have. I have learned it the hard way. Until I lost my mother, I had been guilty of taking things for granted. I don’t do that anymore. It is important to Value and preserve those people and things that are an integral part of our existence.
