Not, Just a Jar


Courtesy
“Colors turned my monochrome living into a Vibgyor, the chits made me believe in me and the jar helped me believe that there is more to life than what meets the eye,” Dia told the reporter.

The journalist sat enthralled by the petite lady who beat death at its game and survived the odds to share her story with the world.

The journalist smiled and gave an inquisitive glance around. Sensing her thoughts Dia continued, “That one moment when I stood facing death I realized that my material possession was of no use. I promised to be a minimalist in another life.”

  4. It often takes an extreme event, loss or near loss to open our eyes to what is truly important, what really matters in life.
    I'm with Dia! The older I get, the more I like the idea of minimalist living!
    Glad you joined in the SSS this week :)

    1. That is the irony, we realize the importance of things only when we don't have them or are on the verge of losing them.
