Last month flew by so quick amidst my travel plans and office work, that it left me wandering; sometimes despite all your efforts, your daily chores and work can make you robotic, leaving no time in hand for the things that you actually love & enjoy doing. We get so engrossed in our work that we fail to enjoy the beauty around us, we fail to savor the precious moments that will never come back. I understand that work can’t be skipped and everything, but its very crucial to take a break from everything and just be in the moment for sometime, spend some hours with yourself reflecting on what you did or more importantly what you want to do.
Blogging is a medium for me to achieve that pause in life; when its me, my thoughts and anything/ everything that I want. When I can appreciate things in the minutest details and also look at the bigger, abstract picture at the same time. But last month even that took a back seat with everything else. I could just write 2 blogs in the starting and rest of the month is a big blank.
On one these busy spring days last month, I accidentally rekindled my love for photography while on vacation at my parents house. My mom loves gardening, she has a terrace garden that she is addicted to. Now when I go to meet my parents, since there is nothing much to do I become a big time couch potato (Bed, TV, Bed, Novel, Bed, Food that’s pretty much all I do :P). A day when my mother got real pissed at me, she asked me to go take a walk on the terrace and get some fresh air in my system. I really didn’t want to get out of bed but had no choice.
As soon as I reached up, I fell in love with my mom for throwing me out of bed. It was a beautiful evening, maybe one of the many I had missed and overlooked, wonderful bunch of flowers & warm sunset made everything around look fresh and lovely. I liked it all so much that I went and grabbed my camera to click a few shots. When I just looked at these pictures, I realized that time is always running, and there will always be chores around(big/small) for us to be busy but it’s these little moments of satisfaction and happiness that make our life what it is.
And its these little moments that I hope to live for every day.
