Giving back

Today was a big day of my life. A day that taught me many important life-lessons. In recent times there have been too many frustrating moments that I had somewhat forgotten what unadulterated happiness felt like.

It happened after a very long time, but when it did all I could feel was gratitude. I had been contemplating about it from a long time. Countless worries about my career moves and eager wait for the moment when I’ll begin receiving pay-checks seemed to have robbed me of my peace. It’s not the haste to build a bank balance for my future, neither it is the thirst to acquire money to spend on my aspirations. It is all about securing the future for my daughter.

After a lot of thought, I have come to believe that for me getting a job at the earliest is necessary to patch up the gaping hole of the break in my career. In today’s competitive world, breaks in career need to be dealt with cleverly and quickly before they break you. The lowered self-confidence and prospering self-doubt whether I can be at par of the racing times in my current situation seems to cloud my mind each time I am looking for a job.

Let’s get back to the original topic and pause other issues to refrain from diluting my feelings. Someone distantly known to us, gifted us with a favor that’ll (I pray that it does) go a long way to help me in more ways than one. Though I was at the receiving end of the favor, I couldn’t help but think that I need to create opportunities to give back the goodness I experienced today.

I can feel the same surge of enthusiasm as I had felt when I was a fresh graduate and wanted to change the world with the power of my newly acquired knowledge. As compared to then, though my energy levels have gone down by many notches, I can still feel the empowering desire to give back the goodness to the world and it’s people just the way I experienced it.

The happenings of today only strengthened my faith  that happy times haven’t forgotten me completely. I wish, someday I too have the power to help someone experience great relief and joy by my actions. I want to do my due to add to the pool of goodness that touches everyone’s lives. Something inside me tells me that such time is fast approaching my way.

The song on my mind: Dil hai chota sa ~ Roja

  1. Excellent. Giving a surprise gift to someone, when they are least expecting, is therapeutic. I wrote a similar post (my personal experience) in February 2010. Will you the link by email to you.
