What am I thankful for ?

 Life is a journey …

The real challenge in life is to find the way and reach the end of it on time. If it is done, the dear and the near will applause. 
We may not see them do it,... we may not hear them say it..., 
   but there will be a soft applause... 
   an applause we appreciate in dead-silence! 

Often, it isn’t the end which is important ... it is the journey which is.

Come December, there are thoughts about the year,.. 
a cool season is in progress called the Advent, a Christmas and then a New Year.
What is the best thought I can think in this season? This year, I have written less blogs and a haven't put words to my thoughts the way I must have done previous years. 

I have sat behind day-traders in stock exchange to watch them play their game. They do it like gambling: not knowing their outcome. "Is my journey like that of a day-trader?", sometimes I ask. 

End of this year, what am I thankful  for?

Without beaches, bike and the sea breeze, life would have been a little difficult for me... 

How is it that I cannot thank all the people who have helped me make my life come to this point? Many times I take people for granted... the family for granted... the friends and the clients for granted. But for them, where am I?  Today, I look at them and say, "Thank You"!

I thank God for my bike..  and how it helped me meet many amazing people on the way. Without my bike, I would not have met any of those minds! 

End of the year, what strikes my heart most is a quotation from an old big-boss of the company I worked with, the Coca-Cola. Reading this quotation drives fear, anger and some bitterness in me...
Doesn't matter , I have some more time  to do better...  
Life is a journey and some of us can take a new road to do it.

“Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air. You name them - work, family, health, friends and spirit - and you're keeping all of these in the air. You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls - family, health, friends and spirit - are made of glass. If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for it.  Work efficiently during office hours and leave on time. Give the required time to your family, friends and have proper rest. Value has a value only if its value is valued.”...  
          Brain Dyson ( former COO of Coca-Cola)

And Dear God, I am thankful for every breath in my life, cuz I value my relationship with You!
