I’m getting back in my elements of blogging after a long hiatus. And I feel so natural, as if this is how it was supposed to be. Nothing has changed, you are here, and I’m here. Together we will discover ourselves, our purpose, the meaning of life, one moment at a time.
I must introduce the elephant first. You must be wondering what kept me away? Broadly, everything is well, life is good, as always 🙂 So here!
I was being a mum, a wife, and was just being myself.
I was absorbing life, one moment at a time. Observing, understanding, reflecting, and soaking in its details. Noting a few 😉
I was resting, relaxing and recharging myself.
I was also daydreaming a bit, floating away on white cottony clouds, with my hair flowing dreamily, & eyelashes all curled up.
And most importantly, I was creating. Sometimes something cool, sometimes not so cool, but the point is, I was creating. Showing up, every day.
What I was not doing was posting regular blogs. Creativity and Blogging are two different things. But when I blog, I feel connected to you and to the world. And for that connection, I come back here again, and again, and every time. In short, I come here for you.
In that time, I mean in those hours that I assigned for blogging I was doing nothing. And that’s very important to me. Doing nothing makes me still, fills up my senses with quiet, and that is when I can hear my inner voice. That is when I know, what next. At such silent times, there also appear some demons, which pull you down, thwart the goodness out of you. You need some time to fight them, to come out clear of their grip without being scathed.
In those moments of doing nothing, I was also clicking pictures, practicing calligraphy, doodling, writing (not on any social media site, but on plain white ruled sheets **ah! the sweet joy of longhand love**) & practicing the crow pose.
Besides all that, I’ve been walking. Walking ahead, away from all the people, things and matters that weigh me down, I’m walking towards a person who is a bit healthier & awakened than before, both in mind and body. I’m walking towards feathery glory!
Not everyone has the luxury to take such breaks, but that doesn’t mean you don’t need them. ‘You’ need them to pump you up with fresh oxygen, new ideas & an overall feeling of rejuvenation. This quote will further prove what I’m trying to say. (See my calligraphy practice isn’t going too bad after all!)
“Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack in the concrete? Proving nature’s laws wrong, it learned to walk without having feet. Funny, it seems to by keeping it’s dreams; it learned to breathe fresh air. Long live the rose that grew from concrete when no one else even cared.”Said Tupac Shakur.
When was the last time you did nothing? Or when you were lonely, what did you do? Do comment away! I’m eager to hear from you.
