Right now, I’m sitting in my car, waiting for the silly song on the radio to finish. I’ve ignored my nosy watchman’s worried looks. I continue to sit along with the emptiness in my car.
The song gets done and the next song starts. It’s even sillier, I stay on. I just had an ice-cream and the taste still lingers in my mouth. Since I anyway decided to stay back, I thought, why not contemplate life. So I did.
I had a long, long, day at work. The week has been tiresome too, but I always allow myself to be pleasantly surprised by life and you know what? I never return disheartened.
The ebb and flow of life always fascinates me. Sometimes we’re low and the next moment will almost always be better. Take for example me. I wasn’t having a great week, I didn’t want to hang out with friends but I was forced to and then something inconsequential occurred. It turned my day and the days to come, into a happy mess… and I was fine with it. I went along, did not fight it and it all felt nice.
We have terrible moments, moments of self-doubt and much more. But, I realised, whether it’s a gentle peck on your cheek or a hearty laughter after a long day at work…
Life will give you tiny, tiny moments of magic on an otherwise starless night… on the condition that you allow it to do so.
