Definition of a Normal Life?

Many dream of a normal life.

This everyday life can be defined in many ways:
  • Some would describe it as a situation where he could go to work, come home to a happy family and being able to get his three meals a day with a cover over them.
  • Some would dream of a life without crime or having good health.
  • Some define normalcy as leading a respectable life as he has been convicted of a crime.

Any feature that has been snatched away or he cannot achieve, is desired by man. This usually happens when we become limited in that activity.

When freedom is deprived, people dream of a normal life where man can wander around freely and have the right to speech, and action. Ask people who live in many such countries.

Ask people who have got inflicted by the wounds of terrorism and how they dream of a normal life.

My 2 cents
Next time, when we whine about stress or a monotonous life, let us think of people who live in fear and have lost their loved being. Being unattached to our pattern of life and being thankful for what we have is the path to happiness.

Mantra for today: Count your blessings since they are still in abundance compared to many who don't have a life close to being normal.
