Simple Pleasures

There are countless things that give us pleasure. Most of the time we take them for granted. Waking up to a beautiful sunny day in the middle of a snowy winter can make you smile. Watching Wimbledon with a cup of steaming hot tea and spicy hot samosas on a dark rainy day is one of my favourites. We spend most of our time whining about the things we don’t have, often forgetting to be grateful for the things we do.

There are numerous pleasures to be grateful for. The smell of a freshly baked cake on a dreary evening, the smile on your moms face when you get her flowers, the sound of a baby laughing, a glimpse of the girl you like in the train, catching the elevator when it’s almost closed, making it through the yellow light at the signal, reaching out into your pocket to find a 500 Rs note you had forgotten was there- it’s not like you got a gift but you definitely are richer than you thought you were before you found it.

Look around you and begin to appreciate the things that make you happy. It could be your favorite song being played at a concert, or the comforting warmth of mildly scented clothes just out of the drier. Once you start counting, you will be amazed by how blessed you are and how many simple pleasures you have been given. Whisper a quick thanks to the Lord and keep counting.

Adults Drinking In front of kids Children are like clay waiting to be moulded. They are constantly watching and absorbing from their environment. They look up to their parents as role models sometimes learning from them just by being around them. It becomes necessary, then, that adults always be on their best behavior.

When a child sees his parent drink at a get-together he is inclined to believe that drinking is socially acceptable behavior. It is important to point out to the child that drinking sensibly and responsibly is the privilege of being an adult. If the child sees his parent drinking everyday, he will grow up thinking that drinking is something that adults do everyday and look forward to doing the same when he comes of age. The best thing for adults who drink everyday would be to do so discreetly that children are not subjected to it. If children see you drink socially, within reason, they will have seen firsthand the joys of drinking sensibly and will try to emulate that. Hiding from the children is not the answer. The child is going to go out in to the world and be subjected to peers and friends drinking at parties so it is better that he be aware of the pros and cons of drinking so that he is not pressurized in to drinking by his peers. A well informed child stands a better chance of withstanding peer pressure than an uninformed one.
