Sometimes the difficulties in life make us wonder whether we can ever smile again?
Not the kind of smile or laugh when you watch a comedy show! The kind that stays with you even after the moment has passed!
Every difficult situation in life makes us wonder if we can ever be back to our old normal self again! While normalcy might change, we continue to move on!
One of the sayings by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar aptly captures the essence of bringing back our smiles!
“The way to overcome personal misery is to share universal misery! When you bring some relief or freedom to someone through seva, good vibrations and blessings come to you. Seva brings merit; merit allows you to go deep in meditation; meditation brings back your smile.”Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
Read the quote slowly and understand the depth it tries to convey!
An unselfish act of kindness, service of any kind helps trigger the change!
Being willing to look around you to find someone who can use a kind word, a listening ear, some emotional or physical help are all good to start! The fact that you are able to think of someone else while facing your own challenges is a good start!
Remember, life is full of ups and downs! If you are going through a down phase, you must have enjoyed good times and those good times will be back again! It is just a matter of time!
