What do we exactly want?

"What do you exactly want?" here is  a question which is often asked by the former generation (our parents) to the present generation (us). However, we brush it off carelessly and continue doing what we 'exactly want to do'. But, if one happens to think about what do we exactly want, the answer should be "more". We want more of everything - more money, more popularity, more fame, more, more and even more. In order to get more of everything, we forget to be thankful for what we already have. We have a family which is caring, we have a few friends who are supportive, and above all, we have a life, which is much ignored. We are all aware that we are living a life, but let's question ourselves if we are actually living our lives or just going about it to get 'more' of what we already have! We would be more satisfied to sit among a group of people and talk about random things rather than just sitting alone and may be reading a book or just listening to some good music. Achievements indeed play an important role in living a life, but it is enjoying and appreciating the beauty of little things around us that actually makes life better.
We must understand that life is about living it to the fullest and not just going about it.

    1. Thank you, sir, for reading through. This was a small effort from my end to convey a message, that it is alright to stand still amidst the moving crowd. It is when we stand, in patience, only then we can see what's around us and appreciate the beauty of the world. We must learn to be thankful for what we have, because, like the saying goes, "it is not happy people who are thankful, it is thankful people who are happy". :)
