Born Lucky….Born Blessed…

I was born in a lower middle-class family. At the time of my birth my dad was a clerk in a government organisation and mother a housewife. My father was a high school pass out and My mom, what some will say, a school dropout. 

But then, I was born lucky. Lucky because my parents understood the meaning of good education, more than that they understood the relevance of value education. They ensured that all of us siblings went to good schools and got the best of the education. 

I was lucky that my parents instilled moral values in me, made me capable of differentiating right from wrong. Made us corruption proof. “They taught me to live within my means and that to live happy I don’t have to own too much, rather, no one should own me”. 

I was born lucky to have parents who taught me to stand on my own feet very early in life. They taught me the meaning of ‘Never ever giving up’. They were the best examples of ‘fighters’ I have ever seen. They achieved most with the minimum. They ingrained deep down in my brain that “Happiness had very little connection with material possessions. Happiness has to flow from within”. 

They never differentiated between people, in fact it is late in school, I learnt that people could be differentiated on basis of caste, creed, religion and region. They taught me the value of respecting, maintaining and honouring relationships. 

My parents gave me the freedom of choice, freedom to do what I wanted to do with my life. 

Yes I was born lucky, born blessed and continue to reap the rewards till date…..Yes I am Happy.


  1. God Bless !

  2. “I was lucky that my parents instilled moral values in me” and that’s the most important thing that parents need to do… it’s not about fancy toys. 🙂 🙂 I was raised similar and me too, i feel i got everything that i needed,even more, however i never had trendy clothes or big birthday presents. 🙂

  3. Your parents sound amazing, and I agree on that you don’t have to own much. I have been as lucky as you, cause I too had parents who understood the importance of education, and have always motivated us to study, even though they weren’t able to become what they wanted to become. I’m also lucky to have grown up in Norway, where everyone has to go to school. There are countries where going to school isn’t something you can take for granted, people die everyday, just for trying to make a change.

  4. What a lovely blog post, I too feel like I was born blessed. Bring born in Britain we ate very lucky for much to be provided for us and have a great education system.

  5. You are indeed lucky to have great parents who instill good values. It is always great to feel gratitude and be contented. I really like how you always started with I was lucky because… in most of the paragraph. Thanks for sharing this positive vibes!

  6. I was born insanely lucky and I will forever be thankful of this – sure there are days when I may be a little down in the dumps but overall I am so blessed and that’s how I thrive in life! 🙂

  7. I am very inspired in you. You are so lucky to have parents like them hope every parents should know that kind of parenting.

  8. This was a good read. I can relate to your story. Amongst many things I learned from my parents growing up, contentment is one that is paramount in my heart to date. Happiness should never be quantified by material wealth, it should come from within. Thanks for sharing.

  9. This is such a good read I am glad that you are a proud child of your parents and I am sure they also the same. I am hoping that you always take care, love, respect and follow your parents whatever you are. Remember as their child or children we owe everything from them.

  10. While all parents try and teach good things to their children however you have to be a good child too, to not only listen to their words of advice but also follow it up through out your life. It’s where most of us default it out at times. In any case we as parents now must pass on this wisdom to future generations.

  11. I enjoyed reading your post! You’re so lucky with your parents! I feel lucky to have my parents too! Thanks for sharing this wonderful post, God Bless! <3

  12. What a wonderful tribute to your parents. I try to instill the same values in my children.

  13. This is actually something that I’m always reminding myself of. To be grateful always for everything that I have. Whenever I think my life sucks, I remind myself that I’m actually so blessed and to remember to be grateful!
