A Small Addition To Our Daily Routine

If, in our early formative years we are made to mend our deviant ways, we will live the rest of our lives in a noble way

To err is human. To stray is innate to humans. But, leading an upright life is important if we want to walk with our heads high. How do we fight off our propensity to err?

One easy way. 

We should note down in our diary the many acts of folly we inadvertently commit as we prod through our daily life. Doing it may appear difficult – just as a young maiden detests seeing the pimples in her face in the mirror. But, this is a small pain when compared to the large gain it brings to us. By honestly writing down our immoral doings of today, we reduce the recurrence of these wrongs tomorrow.

We must start this process in right earnest. Writing down the wrongs forces us to ponder the missteps we took during the day, and introspect to see why we did it. Such soul-searching will prove to be highly rewarding.

We may have done some good deeds that might fill our mind with contentment. When we begin to list the immoral things we did, we might feel tempted to keep them under wraps and avoid thinking about them altogether. Such aversion to admitting guilt is only human, but avoiding an honest relook at it would be a major failing. Faithfully recounting and jotting down the good and bad things of the day would implore us to repeat the good acts and avoid the bad ones.

A person remains a learner till the last day he walks on this earth. If, in our early formative years we are made to mend our deviant ways, we will live the rest of our lives in a noble way. When we do something magnanimous, the beneficiary’s woes diminish and he might remember us for the rest of his life. This feeling lifts our soul.

Therefore, we must do something good for others. If we are not in a position to do something great and big for our fellow beings, we can try from the humblest of actions.

A day shall come when we will be in a position to do something really great and worthwhile for others in a much grander scale. When the time comes for us to depart, we can welcome death with a smile.
