Every cloud has a silver lining

After getting married in 1993, I shifted from Delhi to a colony next to a cement factory where my husband worked which was located in a remote area. Back then, there were no proper roads, no telephones, no proper hospitals, no restaurants or movie theatres. For daily needs, we had a small cooperative store. To talk to my parents and relatives, I had to travel 4kms to the nearest telephone.

Despite these circumstances, I enjoyed living there because there was no pollution. My husband’s office was only 2kms away and the travelling time was low, unlike metros. I found myself loving the calm environs of the colony and didn’t miss the hustle and bustle of the city. People in the colony were very amiable. They helped me a lot in setting up my house and also during my pregnancy. Some of them are life long friends now. I’m a glass half full kind of a person so I enjoyed every situation. A positive attitude goes a long way.

We should try to make the best out of our situation rather than cribbing about what we don’t have. Happiness is that kind of choice that we make and create for ourselves.

I will highly appreciate your opinion and feedback regarding my blog. In my next post, I will write about my experience with the holistic development of my young kids.
