Celebrating Life #5 : Share What You Have
“I celebrate life by sharing what I have”, says my neighbor Mrs. Shweta Soni.
Mrs. Shweta Soni is a very enthusiastic person and she is always excited about everything, every time. The fact that she lives alone most of the time and still holds such positivity in her thoughts is what intrigues me the most.
She says that life is a maze, it's a puzzle and it is interesting if you get down to live it. It is the summation of several actions both positive and negative, continued from birth till death. In her opinion, it is that either you do something good, or something bad. But, in no case can you be still. You only get to lie still when you are dead. As somebody said, you may like it, you may hate it but, you cannot ignore it. If you cannot add up something good, try to delete something bad.
Mrs. Soni spends most of her time alone at her home, because of her husband’s regular ups downs from one city to another for business meetings. She is quite rich and loaded when it comes to all the fancy and luxurious things, but she believes that all the luxuries don’t matter in her life much. She says, that you don't celebrate life when you have all the money, a beautiful spouse, a bungalow to live, you drive fancy vehicles, wear costly jewelry, etc. She tells that she has seen many people hate their life because they cannot enjoy such luxuries. She believes that life is not a game like Temple Run or Subway Surfers but one heck of a mystery. You don't know what is going to happen next and you should live in the awe of this beautiful present called life. What better can we mortals ever ask for? She tends to live a life that is worth it, where she can share anything and everything with others. She believes that your things get doubled when shared and still you have enough. “Having enough is the key to living a fulfilling life”, she said.
As mentioned before, Mrs. Soni is alone at home for most of the days and to get through with that loneliness, she spends her time roaming around the city and sharing her things with people who are in actual need of those things. Moving around the city and helping people in need by sharing her things with needy ones makes her feel happy throughout the day and also makes her feel satisfied. Her mantra for life is to ‘Just give it’. When somebody needs something, you should simply walk over to him and give him what he wants (of course he can ask anything but, if the person is a genuine one, he'll have a small need). You should go ahead and fulfill it. That will make him super happy and she bet you, that seeing him smile, you just won’t be able to hide your curve-ends going heavens.
For Mrs. Shweta Soni, Celebrating Life means sharing what she has with others. She found her way of celebrating life and you should find yours too.
