Small things in life

Unexpectedly today at work a bunch of restaurants had setup shop in our cafeteria in the afternoon and were distributing free food and snacks. These kind of things seem to happen regularly in Salt Lake City, restaurants want to promote themselves and what better place to get more customers than at a crowded office work place full of people trying to avoid work for any reason possible, and also slightly hungry since it has been a while since they made the last attempt to avoid work which they decided to call Lunch.

On this occasion though we also had a desi restaurant "The Himalayan Kitchen" participating and all of us got treated to some tasty Samosas replete with both sweet and hot chutney. It had been a while since I got to eat Samosas during break time at work, the last time was a couple of years back when I was working in India and it made me quite unexpectedly happy. A simple thing like eating a samosa which I can drive down and get at any time has the potential to make you happy is an unbelievable concept if grasped correctly. I left the stall smiling and also cracked a few PJs asking the waiters to come back again soon like I was sending off a house guest and also to get some tea to go with the samosas next time to add Icing on the cake.

Funny how its the small-2 things that make us happy but it is always the large and extra large things which we end up running after that disappoint us. So followers, readers and well wishers while you are busy running after your dreams and ambitions in life please use this as a reminder to stop and take a moment to enjoy the small things in life which actually make you happy, trust me this one moment of joy will take you a long way....
