I don’t know when in the near past I was happy like I am today. Life had been perturbing in the last few months. I stopped reading; blogging became infrequent, less socializing and nine hours in office every day. However, today everything seems to have fallen into place. Brother scored 93 per cent in CBSE 12 Board exams. A friend was into problems since a long time. Today, he found a way out of them. A dear friend Teny, gifted me with the best that I have ever received out of blogging. But I wonder are these the reasons behind my happiness? If yes, then why didn’t I feel so much at peace when I got my job, or bought my first camera, or when I received my first salary? There is a strange peace surrounding me which I have met with seldom in my life.
A few things that I read in the past few days might have worked towards building the aura of tranquility around.
“Calculate a little less. Think a little less. Don’t try to understand everything. Stand in some uncertainties. Feel the wind around you. Savour the flavour in the air. Be. Just be.” (from Matheikal’s blog).
These lines cajoled my mind in the way nothing had ever done recently. What does thinking, overthinking, trying to understand everything brings to you? What would you do even if you understand every damn matter around? We put the chains of expectations and thus, disappointments around ourselves and die a several deaths suffocating within.
Some very positive and inspiring lines from Inspire99,
“You will find your manifestation. Don’t be so restless. It’s going to come to you.”
This idea of being a little kind and less strict with yourself has occupied a permanent space within my heart.
Perhaps, somewhere or the other I already know that life’s not going to be easy. The happiness which we feel, lives for a short time. It gradually succumbs under the strong forces of dismay and worldly pressures. Still, we must celebrate the single day we stayed happy, we felt the peace. In these short happy moments, lives the life. And I don’t wish to understand why I am happy today. Letting it be however it is. Be. Just be.
