Being Grateful

Meeting different people creates awareness. Yesterday, while thinking about my future goals and sipping chai alongside the cafeteria, I noticed a person sitting next to me.
It was Faheem Bhai, a middle-aged guy, who worked in the same office as a clerk for 8 years and due to paralysis, he has been out of his job for the past 2 years. We chatted for a while. I asked him about his conditions and whether there has been an improvement in his health.
When I started walking down the road on my way back to office, I started laughing at my own problems and a question popped up in my mind.
 
Why do we think so much about our future?
I didn’t get the answer. It was a tough question I guess.
We speak so much about our helplessness with our friends and family, how we can’t do this and not able to do that. We discuss so much about our incapabilities all the time.
This guy, how helpless he must have been feeling all the time. He was a hard working employee and now not able to work anymore. How helpless he must have been feeling everyday. It is too hard for me to imagine his helplessness. I don’t know what plans God has in store for him, but for the last 2 years of his life, he must have been feeling miserable.
To be grateful is a choice, which we often forget to take. Thank you, God, for all the prosperity and health that you have given. Thank you so much.
