How I realized the importance of water?

Just when I was meandering in and out of my house, my mom called out to me and told me there was something wrong with the water pumping motor. I reached out to her as soon as I heard her voice. The thought of an empty tank was constantly bugging her. She added that without water it would not be possible for her and us to do the daily chores. I ran towards my room, which took me a while, to call my electrician. The person who I can rely on with my eyes shut. At times, he is lackadaisical and doesn't respond well. As usual, he told me that he was busy and would not be able to come. I told him that it was urgent and there's nothing we could do without his help. That's when I realized how important an electrician is. I sound like a square peg in a round hole in such situations. Jokes apart, I insisted him to visit us the following day and the call ended on an assuring note from his side. Meanwhile, we had the whole day ahead of us and thoughts of water running dry.

Peace: A Quiet and Calm State of Mind

There are several ways in which one can attain peace but it totally depends on oneself. I prefer sitting motionlessly in a place and listening to songs of my choice without having anyone horning in on the process. We all are very much occupied with the mind-numbing activities of ours that we even forget to pay attention to our mental health which in turn has a negative toll on our health. Sometimes getting oneself involved in an endless debate or irrelevant talks leads to frustration and hence, negatively affects one’s mind. Peace can neither be taken from somebody nor can be bought offline or online. It comes from within. Being desirous of things that one doesn’t have leads to unhappiness and thus, hinders the process of attaining peace. One should learn to contend with the things one has instead of being sad about the things one doesn’t have.

Though, I disagree with the statement, “Money can’t buy you happiness” because the inability to buy anything for oneself will definitely not make one happy. Poverty can leave you in a state of somberness that would last unless one finds a way out, that is, start earning to make the ends meet. Therefore, wealth is one such aspect of life that can help you attain peace. Sometimes the presence of wealth can't satisfy you fully because with wealth comes mental pressures. Mental pressures lead to unhappiness, which takes you far away from procuring quietude. So, happiness is equally important if you are looking forward to attaining a  stress-free state of mind. After money and happiness, the presence of good company in your life is cardinal. There are times when we face complications in our lives and it is during such times when our company comes in really handy. Guiding you through your problems is one of the characteristics that good people have. So, if you have people who stand by you and fight your problems during your hour of need, you are at peace; free from any emotional or mental agitation. Most of you have a guitar at home, right? The reverberating sounds of the strings can really have a positive effect on you. It can really change your mood. I consider playing guitar a fruitful activity as it helps allay my mental burdens and puts me at ease when I feel uncomfortable. Doing things that we really enjoy can help us attain a calm state of mind. Last but not least, it's the conception of satisfaction that concludes the notion of peace. Like I said earlier, one should contend with the things one has in one's possession. Sometimes in the hunt for more, we lose the ones at hand.  After all, a bird in hand is worth two in the bush.

Peace is nothing but a scrumptious mac├ędoine of wealth, happiness, good company, fruitful hobbies, and satisfaction.
