Life does seem to be the same year after year.Although there aren’t many surprises or new adventures that I embark on(don’t think I’m the adventurous sort),there isn’t anything new in the love front or I think will ever be and work is slow,despite all of this I have those special moments to be grateful for,the tiny blessings that come my way.
So I’m going to list down some of the things I’ve been thankful for,being that we are half way through 2017.
We took up a home improvement project in Summer and I thoroughly enjoyed it.The absolute chaos around the house,the workers coming in and out,seeing the house slowly transforming not into entirely something new but new and sparkling just the same.Loved the hustle and bustle it created for a short time in our lives and my new work shelf.
My sister treats me to a trip to Goa every year since younger sister is always broke.We had a really relaxing time and being by the beach was wonderful.The beach in the rains is beautiful and I loved the wind and the spray of rain on me.It does nourish my soul to be there with my soul sister and hate coming back which explains the grumpiness on the way back.
I’ve taken up reading again like I’m on some kind of read-a-thon.Books have kept me company,they’ve helped me switch off from my phone and they’re so comforting.No greater solace than a good book.My favourite read this year has been the one I’m currently reading.The Girl You Left Behind-Jojo Meyes..it’s lovely.The kind of book you want to finish but not quite.
Yes I say friend because I’ve had one constant friend this year who I can talk to everyday about everything.From the mundane to the important to just about anything.I’m grateful I have at least one such friend in this world.
Mum has been my constant companion and I can vent out just about anything to her.She’s not judgemental about things that bother me and understands completely where I’m coming from.I love her so.
I’m no artist but lately I look up a picture and try to sketch it.It gives me great joy and I love adding a filter to it occasionally.
Bandra is my home and one of my friends arranged a walk through some of its tiny winding lanes and we ended up getting some great pictures.Pictures of home..so much to still discover about it.
I have six little children who come to me for classes which is the only work I have and they really keep me going.I love it when we can laugh together.
Every year although the universe denies me a lot,I am unusually blessed by these simple moments and wonderful people that make the world seem like a special place to be and fill my heart with contentment.
What makes you content,what makes you breathe a little,what makes you smile,what makes you feel loved,what makes your world go round?
