I am playing with a single word in this post. ‘SATISFACTION’
Let me start with myself, I belong to that category of people who can absolutely go on moaning about how unsatisfied they are with their lives. Most often, this feeling of being unsatisfied is woven with jealousy and just when I start feeling guilty about it, I meet people exactly like me. Misery does attract company.
This feeling of being unsatisfied probably happens to animals too. We hear the story that even the peacock is not satisfied with his life because he thinks that he has hideous feet (I wish I could show him mine). The parrot is sad because it has only two colours, while the peacock is so vibrant. (So, the parrot is apparently jealous too). The Swan, which is considered as one of the most beautiful birds, is not happy because it has only one colour; white. Thus, the crow is the most unsatisfied of the lot maybe that is why people associate this bird with moaning. (Perhaps he grumbles over his colour; Racist, maybe)
We have attached ourselves to this phrase of being unsatisfied so severely that we rarely meet a person who doesn’t complain over something.
Somehow, we are all struggling in life, we might have faced the worst; heart aches, failures, family issues, and yet we are going strong, so we need to stop criticizing ourselves, STOP WHINING. When we greet every day with a hope that everything will change and today will be a better day, then why are we wasting the little time we have in this life crying over what we don’t have instead of being happy with what we have. We cannot be happy if we constantly compare ourselves with others, and whine about what is wrong with our life, sometimes if things in life go so wrong then instead of being depressed about it, we can be the change. If we have a family, a few friends and a home, then we are luckier than so many others.
The essence of this world lies in in its uniqueness. If God’s idea of this world was anything different, he would have made us all alike but then he did make us all unique.
