Values in the Trivialities of Life

Micro and Macro Economics are two major branches of Economics. I remember how my Teacher used to make us understand the difference between the two, “Macro economics is what is applicable at the National or society level while Micro economics is the application of same concept at a smaller level of an individual or family etc.”

With the wisdom of these growing and passing years, I now, know the veiled relevance behind it.

If to run and develop a Nation, contribution of all on a whole is required like in Japan & Korea, similarly, to run a household contribution of each member is a must. If we just keep using the resources of a country and furthermore in homes, it will only won’t put us in the position of a GUEST, temporary to the nation & to the house.

To be treated like one of the family and to boot the luxuries of having one, we need to start contributing and air the attitude of service. Put aside the egos we home in us, for taking up small tasks and aerial spire Humility. Absence of it will only lead to regret & resent the benefits of others.

My contribution to the household today was:

  1. Dusting the house as it is for everyone
  2. Setting clothes
  3. Filling water bottles
  4. Filling water in cooler
  5. Watering plants
  6. Soaking clothes
  7. Removing and later fixing curtains after wash

My contribution to myself was…

  1. Eating healthy breakfast
  2. Doing little yoga
  3. My blood check up at a camp in society
  4. Talking and chatting to my friends
  5. Later reading a book/writing my book
  6. Fixing and sewing my dress

Even to the smallest of acts like cleaning cheese cage & opening main door to the bell also serve as mindful hand-outs.

So, Get up….Gear up & Show up for all the small & big jobs of the house, do the daily chores, be responsible for yourself, your family-friends-neighbors, to your society/nation and topmost towards this human form.

Respect it! Play your role of a humanitarian.
