It was one of those winter evenings, where everyone at the cafe were buried in their warm flurry jackets. The cafe was decked up with beautiful white cages dangling with cozy yellow lights inside it. Though being a chilly cold evening, the cafe was surrounded with a huge mob, everyone around had gathered for discussing about New Year’s Evening.
Well, it had to a big bash party, after all it was 31st ~ “The last day of the kick ass year”.
Loud laughter and jokes about how their year went,how many memes did they tag each other in, how many trips were cancelled, how many more will they be planning in coming year 2018 and not to forget the big business plans which are going on since years and years were heard across the tables. With all these discussions going around, tears of joy and sense of satisfaction was seen on every one’s face in the cafe apart from ONE.
Although, the left most corner of the cafe was covered with brightest lights and colorful cages, it still appeared dull. It seemed as if the happiness in the cafe did not flew towards the corner of the cafe. A young beautiful girl was sitting there holding a hot coffee mug and lonely smile tucked over her face.
Hearing the glee around, she whispered to herself : What was so great about the year? Why is every one around smiling even when the year might not have been much fruitful to each one? Why is every one so excited about New Year Night? What is the coming year going to owe ? It’s always going to be the same.. One more year with heart breaking expectations and pain. A year more to survive.
It appeared that she was being very much pessimistic about things around. Just then some thing happened, some thing that caught her attention. Out from the crystal clear window, she saw a man holding a stack of balloons returning back to his home. There stood a small hut roadside where his children’s were playing and his wife was cooking food on hearth. Seeing their father coming back, little kids geared up with joy and started running towards his side. The man immediately hugged his kids and carefully listened to their day stories. All three of them reached their hut and his wife served them the dinner, the dinner not being a lavish one, had some chapati’s and some daal.
The entire view pinned her mind, she carefully kept on observing them for some more time. To this she realized, even though this little family is able to survive hardly, how much contended they are. She could see the joy on their face and the zeal of living their life no matter how bad their survival was.
With all such thoughts in her mind, a new soul was born in her. She realized each minute, each day and each year might or might not be worth, but at least one should be contended with what ever one possess. There’s always a brighter sight waiting for us and ready to cuddle us up. When she walked out of the cafe, brightest smile rolled on her face and she now had plans in her mind of celebrating New Year’s eve and being grateful and Celebrating each day of the bestowed LIFE (And she framed it as her New Year Resolution).
P.S : Each Day is a New Day, Erase the past bad chapters and live your TALE as a New ONE every single day.
