As a course of daily life, we play myriad roles of that of a daughter, wife, mother, co-worker, boss, etc,. but quite often forget the real me. In order to function right it is essential to connect to the real ‘me’ inside.
Two days ago, I found real joy and me. While getting back home from my mother’s place and there were a set of things that I really like that came together, to make me really happy. In order of sequence:
- I was driving a nice car on a relatively traffic free road after a really long time: driving is one of those things that can uplift me anytime.
- It was dusk and in spite of the crazy pollution and the evening traffic just starting, the sun shone in a beautiful golden yellow that was so ‘happy’ – nature is another thing that makes me happy, I can spend hours admiring it and love to go to places where nature is respected and treasured. The beautiful sun all through the way, just made me forget everything.
- A beautiful number from a Telugu movie – Anathpuram 1980 – Kontechupu tho. The lyrics, the music just made it for me. I ended my drive with this beautiful number on the radio and what can I say, I loved life!
These are the simple things that life is made of and that which makes life worth living and loving the ones in our life!
