“I’m Prameela, 51 years old. I wake up early every day and head out to my job as a road sweeper. It’s not the most glamorous job in the world, but it’s honest work and I take pride in it. I’ve been doing this job for over 25 years now, and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon.
When I come home after my shift, my family is always there to greet me. My husband passed away a couple of years back but that doesn’t make me weak.
My two sons, and their wives all live under the same roof with me, and we all get along very well. We eat breakfast together and catch up on each other’s lives before everyone heads out to their own jobs.
Some people might think that living with an extended family is a burden, but for me, it’s a blessing. We support each other through thick and thin, and it’s comforting to know that we always have each other’s backs.
Sure, we don’t have the fanciest cars or the biggest house, but we have something that money can’t buy: peace. We may not be wealthy in material possessions, but we’re rich in love and happiness. I’ve seen people who have all the money in the world, but they’re still not satisfied. They’re always chasing after more, but they never seem to find true happiness.
I’m grateful for what I have and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I don’t know what the future holds, but I do know that as long as I have my family and my peace of mind, I’ll be just fine. Money may come and go, but the love and support of those closest to us are what truly matters in life.
And near me, is my friend, who also lost her husband but decided to stay happy and peaceful whatsoever.
There are issues in everybody’s lives including ours. But if you ask us if we have any concerns or problems, we would happily say “NO”.
Surround yourself with positive people so that you have nothing to complain about. Taking life positivity is itself a blessing I believe.”
