What I learnt today (Part 4)

Gratitude is an art of painting an adversity into a lovely picture

Please do watch the above video. It will take only 6 minutes and 10 seconds and may be couple more seconds/minutes for buffering :) It was awarded the most popular short film at a Berlin Film festival. A normal attitude of anyone in the above situation would be to angry with God and situation for being not able to get food but its so inspiring to see the attitude of this man. Its so truly said:

“Be it any situation, Life is what you make of it”

Next time any of us is sad/angry at the dinner table because the food is not delicious enough or our business deal didn’t go through or we had a fight with someone then lets not forget to watch the above video. All of us get so trapped in this rat race that we completely forget to cherish the small little things we have been blessed with.If we really think about it, in almost every difficult situation, we have two choices: Be angry that why it happened or be grateful that it could have been worse. Recently someone in our family had a brain stroke. When I talked to his daughter, I was so amazed to see her attitude. All she had in her heart was gratitude that her dad was saved and it could have been worse. Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.

Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today,
at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick,
and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful. – Buddha
