Day 7 – G for God, Garden and Games

G is the alphabet for gratitude and this simple act of being in gratitude can transform our thinking and help us stay more positive.

When it comes to life, the critical thing is whether you take things for granted or take them with gratitude.

Gilbert Chesterton

God is the faith that someone out there is keeping an eye for you. He will be there, when things are right or when they wrong. I am not a very religious person in the sense that i do not believe in the religion which divides. I believe that how I reach out to my creator is my personal belief and it may differ from yours, but that does not differentiate me from you. I do not believe in the definition and explanations of clerics, but I try to interpret God in my own way. I see God in his creations, in the people around me, in the nature and i am grateful to God for always keeping us in his care. I am not always this positive and i have my moments of weakness and doubt, but whenever i have felt its this Faith which pulls me through.

None of us knows what might happen even the next minute, yet still we go forward. Because we trust. Because we have Faith

Paulo Coelho

Gardens change the aura of a place. Just being surrounded by the greens and the flowers makes a place more beautiful, healthy and clean. I have always loved places surrounded by greenery. Whenever, I am house hunting, I try to look for places close to gardens and parks. Just a 30 min walk each day in a beautiful garden lifts up the spirit and keeps us healthier and saner. The green and colorful environment keeps me cheerful and happy. I tried a lot over the past few years to grow a few potted plants in the balconies, but i was never able to care. The excessive sunlight and extreme hot in Dubai would just burn them up, and I finally stopped trying. I still hope I will be able to have my personal green space one day.

I am thankful for the Games, both Indoors and Outdoors. Again, No Play and All Work makes Jack a dull boy. Outdoor games keep us physically active and Indoor games sharpen our skills. We have seen a time when we could not be outdoors and how bad it was for children to be not able to run and play. I used to run half marathons before covid, and the restrictions to be out except to go to hospital, made me inactive and lazy. It has only been in the last few months that I have been able to start sticking to my walking schedule and i am hoping i will be able to start running again soon. My favorite Indoor games are Monopoly and Cluedo. It has become like our family tradition over the years.

    “ I see God in his creations, in the people around me, in the nature” Beautiful!!!How nice it would be , if we all had that mindset. Proximity to a park or nature is something I l too look for when I am moving to a new place . I think my list would also have a library 😀.

  3. Life is like a GARDEN, and GOD is the gardener. Sometimes He plants new seeds, other times He prunes what’s old. But amidst the GAMES of growth and change, the beauty of the garden lies in the journey.
    Lovely read, Ruchi!
