DAY 26 -: ZEST FOR A HAPPY LIFE
“If things don’t come easy, there is no premium on effort. There should be joy in the chase, zest in the pursuit”. Branch Rickey.
A word Zest reminds me of a very interesting book I read couple of months ago “ZEST OF HAPPINESS ” by Melina Nardi Story about three different boys,living three different and an awful childhood.
1989 in Chargulli, Pakistan. Sameer loves running after chickens and stealing apples from his neighbors. He has no idea that soon enough his life will change drastically as the Russians leave Afghanistan and the Talibans are slowly taking over the region. 1989 in Naples, Italy. Nicola loves watching Beppe make pizza and hates doing subtractions. He wonders where his mother is taking him as she runs through the peach and olive trees, further and further away from home. 1989 in Santiago, Chile. Juan is a lonely child who has been taught to hide in the shadows. He hears all around him that Pinochet is gone, that democracy has been restored, so why does his father still feel fear in his guts every time he leaves the house? Inspired from real persons, based on true facts, this novel reveals the untold stories of many people around the globe who are struggling to find their own life destinations, despite oppression, humiliation and confusion. They are immigrants, activists, guerrilleros.or simply human beings with a wandering heart, but all of them have an admirable zest for happiness.
Zest is defined as living life with a sense of excitement, anticipation, and energy. Approaching life as an adventure; such that one has “motivation in challenging situations or tasks”. Zest is essentially a concept of courage, and involves acquiring the motivation to complete challenging situations and tasks. Those who have zest exude enthusiam excitement and energy while approaching tasks in life. It is a positive trait reflecting a person’s approach to life with anticipation, energy, enthusiasm and excitement. The most universal and distinctive mark of happy people is zest. With zest one has more interests which bring more opportunities for happiness.
