Imagine being in a beautiful park surrounded by beautiful and sweet atmosphere. But, what if the garden of the park has no reality, what if the garden does not have fallen and dry leaves, imperfect trees, sweet smelling real flowers; though being surrounded by these many things, the atmosphere will make you feel unreal; emptiness will surround you. A feeling of nothingness will surround you. It’s a feeling that comes to you when you feel and see that you have everything, but a smallest thing makes you feel that actually you have nothing. That one little thing makes you feel empty and worthless.
It has been felt many times by me. I remember in my second year in college we had an announcement that there was going to be a Half Marathon in our city back in January 2017. Our college was distributing the registration forms to become a participant in the Marathon. I was extremely excited. It was a happy moment for me. My parents gave me permission to become a part of it and my dearest friends were joining me. Everything was there with me. But one single thing made everything that I had useless and worthless. An identity card; a general identity card that is indeed became now a necessity for all the citizens of our country. I remember back in my school days how I ignored the need to have this identity card. Everything started clicking me all of a sudden. This one small identity card shattered all my excitement, happiness and joy. I was filled with regrets of not getting one due to my own laziness and ignorance. But that repentance was never going to help me get the opportunity to participate in the Marathon. That one incident made me so helpless and incapable of doing something that I really wished to do. It was a small identity card which I ignored due to my own laziness since it wasn’t that necessary then, but the same identity card later shattered my beautiful dream and my excitement.
This is how the things that look small and insignificant are actually the most significant things. The things that sometimes you thing can ignore sometimes are the things that needed the most attention. Another situation made me realize the same when all of a sudden my Laptop got repaired one day and it was left at the repairing shop for a few days, I had to work with my Brother’s laptop. I had this Java test the other day and I had to practice doing programs in laptop. I got all the software from my laptop and started installing them in my brother’s laptop. But I somehow missed small software and because of that one small little software I wasn’t able to practice the programs in the editor. This is how that little software made every other thing useless and worthless. Though I had everything, but still I had nothing in hand.
These were the technical things, but Life is so much Non-technical. It is beyond our thought and ideas. It is unpredictable and yet so beautiful. We can’t predict what is going to happen the next hour, the next minute the next second. It is full of sweet surprises and sudden shocks. We always look at life as a big picture; we forget to see that the small things gather together and make the picture. To make a picture look beautiful, the color, their combination, their amount everything matters. It’s just small things taken together that make the big picture look beautiful. We run behind the big dreams that we see and in the pursuit of those big dreams, we forget to cherish the small things, we forget to appreciate small happiness.
It’s the little thing that makes the impact. A simple sweet smile sometimes makes someone’s day. A simple appreciating talk can motivate someone who is down. A small talk can sometimes reduce the pain that you might be carrying in your heart. Sometimes a simple small walk can make you feel refreshed. A sweet with your parents, your dearest friends sometimes can avoid lots of misunderstanding and can reduce the distance. It’s small but it has great impact.
Look at the small beauty around you. It will fill you up with happiness and satisfaction that is incomparable. A small fraction is what makes the change. A small fraction of Love can improve the Situation and at the same the absence of that small fraction can turn things upside down. Just a small Fraction!
