My Profound Thoughts

Simple yet subtle.. Profoundly silly yet thought-provoking.. Sums up life..

Better late than never..

As usual, I was having my regular chatter with my parents over the phone. The headline on rising energy bills popped up on the screen. This has been a topic of discussion lately among colleagues and friends.

In between our talks, I voiced my concern over the soaring day-to-day expenses to my dad. I asked, “Don’t you think it’s unfair that wages are not increased proportionately to living costs?” My dad replied, “At least you both are working. Have you thought about those who don’t have an income?” And I thought this is my father; as always, a feeling of reassurance lies hidden in his words —a considerate and selfless human being. It’s not always about us. Even in the simplest of conversations, he reminds me of the people around me, who, at times, I forget to acknowledge. Moreover, it’s a gentle reminder to appreciate what I have and stay grounded.

** We earn, we buy food, we buy clothes, we pay bills, be it groceries, energy, or fuel. We never worry, because we think these are all that money can buy. And what we forget is that the energy, the fuel and all those resources we often misuse more than use, can become things we can’t afford anymore one day if we don’t use them wisely and efficiently.**

As I wound up the call, I thought to myself, the rising expenses remain a concern, which may or may not be addressed. But what I could control from my side would be to become more considerate by reducing wastage, be it food, energy or resources and lead a more efficient lifestyle. Better late than never.

Much love ❤️ God bless
