    What we desire is not always, what we Get..
    But unknowingly many times we get things much more than what we Expect..
    These are called “Blessings”.
    GOOD MORNING

    So true we forget that everything is given by us by God and he knows what to give us and when. So we should be happy with what we get and not get disappointed with what we dont have or we dont get. . I learnt this in my life , while young I had lot of dreams , some were fulfilled , some were not , but I learnt to live with whatever I had and thats why God blessed me and gave me parents, parents in law, my family all the best. I have no regrets in life , if I dont have something I enjoy those in places I go. I feel today I am the happiest person in the world and wealth and facilities are not so important, peace of mind and contented life is what necessary in life

    Good morning vijimaami. You have started the morning on a very positive note. Yes, it makes sense to remember our Blessings especially when we keep yearning for something or the other!

    I like this beginning... it is like a movie starting with some action right away... and then comes the Title, and greetings in all CAPITAL LETTERS.
    In a famous movie about "The Chosen People" (jews), the main character named Tevye, asks God...


    We have been asked to be adjustable. However, if we can list all of the things we are happy to do without, because we can adjust to our blessings, and be happy, occasional small doubts creep into the mind, and asks "would we be happier with a little bit of this or that ?" A peaceful mind is a difficult thing for most people.

    Once again here is song from the same movie...

    Not just in material terms, but in human relationships too I have found the above to be true. Peace of mind can be elusive unless we actively and consciously choose it and align the rest of our lives around it.

    Dear Vijiakka,

    Love begets love and those who are driven by love for the fellow beings are always happy. Our determination to be happy is the denominator and expectations is the numerator and as we reduce expectations and be determined to be happy, the resultant mathematical equation is favorable in life. :)

    Glad you liked the beginning. Thanks for the video.True that peaceful mind is difficult for some people. It all depends on each one's mentality. For some it is difficult to adjust. I feel those who are born in middle class family learnt to adjust. From childhood if they learn to adjust then it is easy for them For those who are born in a well to do family and are brought up with lad and pyar for them it is difficult.

    A nice thesis.
    I have posted somewhere on this forum that somewhat dysfunctional family life during childhood could help the child succeed in later life.

    However, when a family struggled, and crawled their way up from middle class, it is very hard for them to refuse their children what they, the parents, had lacked when they were children. This is how every other generation gets spoiled rotten, and manage to lose the inheritance in frivolous pursuits. And then their children get the benefits of a tough life, and the need to adjust to whatever circumstance that helps their survival.

    Your posts on life are very thought provoking... and that is how the OP got nominated for FP for this month.
