Old post republished by mistake 🙈… sorry!!!
Hello dear friends,
It’s Saturday and from today, I’m planning to write one post under ‘my corner’ every Saturday to chat with all of you connected to me in some way or the other.
This blog is like my second home, I always say… A place where I go to every day, without fail and feel like a big part of my heart resides here. Whenever I want to pour my heart out, I know that there are some people with common thinking pattern and similar love and interests who are there to share my thoughts, pain, disappointments, happiness, achievements, and love…
Love you all for being ‘that’ circle of friends who connect to me and with each other in many ways – Our common interests, love for reading and writing, our varied passions but almost a similar fire.
Everyone of us works – either at the office or home; for kids and for other relatives, in-laws, for society, etc… We never realize when that work becomes a duty and a responsibility to be carried on a day to day basis. Kudos to those who do all that with a similar fire every day. For the rest of all, the majority, we dwell on our passions to remind us that we are still alive and kicking.
A passion is that little cheer in life which brings so much security and warmth that you develop a feeling a belonging – To your own deeper self, to a higher being, to nature, and to the world. It gives ground for you to stand and smile, for this is YOU! This is real you!
It’s like that glowing warmth of a fireplace that keeps you hooked to it on a chilly day. This ‘me-time’ is actually the only time, capable of giving you a sense of purpose. Of re-energizing you for the rest of the day. To be back to your duties with regained energy.
You always want to go to a certain place, person, thing … again and again… for all the love you get there and the way they make you feel.
For me, it’s my desk and laptop.
My characters and my books are people, I want to spend most of the free time with. They are my ‘go-to’ people, other than my readers who often tell me that some word, some thought, some sentence from any of my story made them smile or made them think. It just makes my day. That’s my little cheer through the entire hectic day.
Last week, we were talking about the subtle connection we develop with the material things around us and find our lives incomplete without them.
This week, let me know what are your little cheers in life…
( I’m not asking about family/kids/husband/friends/ parents etc… They are and will remain our lifelines and the very basis of our existence – they are the Big Cheers of our lives )
But, I want you to write about those ‘little cheers’ where you find solace in something when you are alone… you are just you… when it is your ‘me-time’…
It can be anything – music, watching films, reading, sleeping, knitting, sketching, painting, dancing, etc. Call them hobbies, call them passions, call them timepass – the nomenclature varies only in the zest with which it is followed and the intensity of your love for them.
Let’s cheer for those little things which make our lives happier and prettier!!
Lots of love and millions of wishes for anyone and everyone reading this.
Keep smiling and make everyone else smile too :))
