A journey within
“What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
-Henry David Thoreau
Indeed, we have immense potential within us. If we set our hearts on achieving something, we can always do it.

For reasons unknown, it would delight and excite me every time it rained and I would slide my glass window close to kick start a competition between two tiny raindrops. I would cheer for the winning drop and egg on the one left behind: that was what made me happy.
Like million others, I too silenced the child within me as I grew up. There came a time when I did not have any inclination to enjoy a bout of unseasonal rain or relish a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows. Gulping down mug after mug of black coffee, I had started to equate happiness with material wealth; materialistic possessions, a better bank balance, a six figure pay check, and the latest gizmo was supposedly my ticket to happiness.
