Hi there! It’s been quite sometime since my last post, and what motivated me to write today? May be I am a little ‘less occupied’ with studies since the semesters just got over. Or maybe I want to pen down something that I realised very recently.
These days I have been complaining a lot about the approaching winter and my chapped lips and not being able to wake up early and feeling low and lonely. I am not sad but then I’m not happy either. There are so many things to do yet I am being a slouchy bear! My dear ones convince me by saying, “you have your life so perfect ,well served in a plate. Probably that’s why you are complaining.” At one point even I began thinking -“Am I exaggerating things just to spice up my days a little?” But no one would skip meals (unknowingly) or bath(knowingly) for an entire day just for the sake of drama.
What do I do now?I have been a follower of Robin Sharma and his self help book ‘Who will cry when you die’. I opened that book once again. Read it till I found out what to do. Took a piece of paper and jotted down exactly what was going on in my head. And believe me it brought a lot of clarity and discipline to my thoughts. I felt much better. Next day I woke up early, took a walk under the sun, had bath, wore something nice and made coffee and french toast- all as instructed by my go-to-friend.
So what did I realise? That it’s okay not to be OK sometimes. That problems seem to vanish when you write them down. That you don’t need someone or something to be happy in life. Indeed happiness comes from within.Now don’t tell me you have never ever felt sad without a reason! We all do. And it’s okay. Accept the fact and observe your thoughts. Do something you love and let the time surpass until you feel better again.
Okay, now back to question number one! I got motivated to write from today’s word prompt ‘enchanted‘ but no I’m not enchanted(like the dictionary says) but yes I’m happy and I’m okay. Thanks.
