Chronicling my thoughts, one post at a time..

Stillness

Leave a comment

A little over a year ago, I was sitting at this very spot on a stone bench overlooking the hills, it was a rather chilly morning, having just woken up with no care in the world, it was after all a weekend away from the city, work and everything routine.  If I could pick a time and place to revisit, this would be it.  Enjoying a moment of solitude, my only company was the cicadas and birds chirping about.

So much reminiscing makes me wonder if its time to make a date with nature asap.

Peace & Quiet

I’ve recently realized that one should take the little bits of peace and quiet that life gives us every once in a while.  Chaos and urgency are often how we live, and days (even weeks) pass us by before we feel like there’s finally a moment of peace.  I just noticed the calendar that we are already in October (2017 has been racing past us), and I can count the number of times I’ve been blissfully happy or moments of complete stillness in 2017, most of this year so far has felt like a blur with only chores and activities I didn’t sign up for, when shouldn’t it be the other way ’round.  Grab happiness where you get it, whether its perfect stillness after a long day of work , or plans which works out exactly as you has hoped, or even a conversation with people who let you be exactly you, no masks, no pretenses. Take it, and savor it.

Roundness

The best things in life happen unexpectedly.  Be it gifts that people bring for you from far off lands, just because they know you’d love it, or boxes of chocolate because someone (ahem) has a massive sweet tooth.  Surprises are always welcome in life, especially when it starts to feel like routine is all there is.

This little guy comes to me all the way from Thailand.  And TBH photos don’t do justice to how round and cute this really is.
