A sleepless night, sitting on my bed, having chocolate, under the moonlight. Usually i tend to get pretty fuzzy when i am not able to sleep or if i don’t get sleep. This night, well it was maybe something else. I sat, stood, moved around, had something…..i felt blessed, although i was not able to sleep and i was having a “head-banging” headache, nothing stopped me for sitting under the moonlight and admiring God’s created Nature. At times, how we do forget to look around and apppreciate our blessings, even though we have so many, we tend to turn blind and blind folded by something called “Ungratefulness” as “Gratefulness” is a parent of virtues, the exact vice-versa goes for “Ungratefulness”, its when people become “ungrateful”, we disregard, forget and appreciate all that we have and have had. I Thank God for keeping me away from that and making me realize that Hey, if He didn’t want it, i wouldn’t be awake this night writing this post laying on my bed w/o even looking at my laptop

If He didn’t want, i wouldn’t even be on this bed……aaaand thats just the beginning…..how many times in a day we just stop everything, look around, realize and Thank & be Grateful for all that we have, when do we pause and say “Hey God, sorry for being a jacka** and for any of my actions that may have saddened you, and Thank you for everything” and you smile from your heart and continue with what you were doing. Remember folks, Life is just too damn short, so live each moment, with the magical seed of Gratefulness in your heart, nurture and care for it, by remembering it, which will just make you realize, that just how beautiful really is life. While writing this i did get reminded of my kind Dreamer friend Deanna……and also the friend i met in the mall cc. my post “People and Probabilities“. Could this all ever have been poossible if i hadn’t carried this parable of Gratefulness which later my eyes were opened to. “Carpe Diem”.

As i heard in a Tv serial, which means “Seize the Moment” P.S. that’s the only word/thing i liked in that serial….LOL…..back to the point, (Hell, i got distracted pretty damn fast…..lol) yep, so as the words say “Seize the Moment”……..you see, its just the present moment that we’ve got to be Grateful, okay at this point i was Grateful about that calculator/typewriter like-ish sound that my phone was making on tapping the keys,as my eye lids started drooping and i remembered of some Prose i studied years ago in Grade 9 & 10. Isn’t that just FAB, all of a sudden all of these coming back, that put me to thought, what if i had been “the usual fuzzy boy/man” ??? I don’t even know if i’d have cherished all of the sweetness, at this point it was 5 am on the 10th of December, this seemed more like a diary, the way is was going and i noticed how i placed it all in past tense and again went back to a FAB literature teacher called Mr. Rose we had back in school.

We can’t even imagine where Gratefulness can go

Remember, somethings in life can never be traded, like memories, we all have our own, like our personal diaries to look back, learn and cherish them……i noticed how my post was flying towards many many words.

Life, broken into moments as the "grates" - Image is subject to copyright of its owners

If you notice, “Gratefulness” can be broken up in two words “Grate” & “fullness”…..this reminded me of how we can Grate a carrot or cheese, when we do that, each piece then, as a result of that “grating” has an identity of its own, same as our lives, which when these “grates” of Each Moment of our lives are put  together makes it whole. So why not Live each bit of this Life’s moment “grate” with “fullness”, which someday we all will look back and see at before we leave this temporal presence. So, what are you grateful for, at this moment, what comes to your mind, i am Grateful right now for at least being alive…………..Gratefulness is like a river, the greatness and love of which can fill and quench the thirst of one’s heart.

You know, at times we all tend to get fuzzy, that’s human fuzziness at times…..lol….when that happens (God forbid), just don’t forget to be Grateful, close and open your eyes then, feel the difference as things seem calmer, so does your heart :-). Begin that moment with a smile, Life may not always give a second chance, so just grab this very one, and change your life from this moment.

  1. Bravo again, Mr. Clever!

    I love it totally. I can see that every single word and every message all flow from your heart in a very smooth and beautiful way. You are indeed gifted with words!

    I like the analogy of the word ‘gratefulness’ with that of the grated cheese and carrots! This is clever! I particularly like the part when you say ” Gratefulness is like a river, the greatness and love of which can fill and quench the thirst of one’s heart.”–<–Wow!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Jenny.

  2. We are all so busy trying to get from one day to the next…living in our own world and reaching for a dream that we all want to make come true. I love how you bring it all to a screeching halt for the readers to really reflect on being ‘grateful’ for what He has given to us; look around and we can see it 🙂 I am soooo glad that you ‘seized the moment’ to have some chocolate Faizan!
