funFilled day-Yesterday!

A few minutes ago I was in other room away from this fantastic machine called LapTop. I had every word in my mind what I am going to share with you all.  And I came back to write and every word is being disappeared from my mind. The brain is occupied with so much that sometimes hopping on one task to another and we lose few things in between. Not as efficient as this machine is which autosaves what I type on it, and keeps it there unless it gets a virus attack or gets corrupted. 

Oh! yes, I am getting some glimpses what has to say… I was thinking to share my yesterday’s experience. Yesterday was an eventful day for us, with so much of activity. Asper my decision we planned our day to stay away from our machines and spend quality time with each other.

We went to a nearby temple, and to our surprise, an event was organized there and we had tempting food, which we have been missing for quite some time. The sacred place left us very peaceful inside, something we were missing. The energy was so good. And later there was a performance by small kids. It was so good that we enjoyed every bit of it. And we bought some sweets, which were a part of a fundraising programme for the premises. And they offered us more of the sweets as they were almost living and had to finish those.  We paid more and the amount we got was of even more price, my girls were so happy to have so much of sweets, it is their favorite ‘Rasmalai‘.

Duo Dance. Well done girls!

As per the plan, we had to go to the park after leaving the temple, but we had to come back to keep the sweets.

Then we went to the park and to our surprise there we found melting snow, it was freezing cold and wind chills. I never knew melting snow can be this much messy. The kid’s rides area was full of water, now what? The kids were even happy to play on the smaller ride area which has less water. Soon my elder daughter got engaged to a new friend and little one and dad played “peek-a-boo” in an open area. Later lil one insisted her father accompany her for a walk. 🙂

I was left with my phone-camera. My interest was to find the very signs of spring, I have posted some of the pics on my another post as ‘Awakening’ WPC. Most of the trees still don’t have signs of spring. But fortunately, I could find a few bushes and trees with new budding leaves (the right side image).

And I decided to come back as my hands were almost frozen, actually, we were not dressed according to the weather, expecting a mild cold. So I announced it to three of them and they stayed back for some more time. When they came back their shoes were all wet, they jumped in the snowy water.

Now, I will hop to the late evening, in the evening we had tasty homemade food with good old songs. Later we three danced together and even played Dumb Charades of movie names.

Overall a fun filled day we spent together, and only I know how I handled the temptation of being online and read. But I think it is good to take breaks from our usual routine and habits and trends!

Daily POST, Daily Prompt

inChoAte-ChoCOLate

Somehow, I feel this word is miss-spelled it should be in-chocolate, ‘col’ seems to be missing :). Just kidding actually I myself is little inchoate, so it looked like this, to me, I wonder. Or, might be in my previous post I used the word ‘Chocolate’ 😎 hummmm.

🙂

Suddenly, with the introduction of this word inchoate, everything looks like incomplete, immature and yes, inchoate. We live life in four phases, mainly; child, young, middle age and old age. Every stage comes with certain accomplishments. We acquire education, higher education and find good jobs, or we do business. Wherever we are whatever we do, sometimes we feel that something is still missing from our attainments. And a feeling of anxiety prevails. In achieving all the outwardly medals, achievements, and fame we forget the most important thing, to live and to enjoy the life. We totally ignore the need to enjoy the small little things happening around us. We want to win every rat race, we are in. (We are no less than the Alexander the Great in our small world, with big aspirations).

I know life is not easy, it throws all the obstacles and barriers, but that’s not to stop you from living, but that is to make you more strong and mature as a pure human soul.

The perspective has to be changed to look at the things happening around us. I totally agree that if something bad happens to someone, any kind of loss leaves us stunned and in shock. But isn’t it, this is the time where we can find a way to grow, and we can collect all our strength to become even more, content and mature.

I have always felt, life is just like getting the higher education, the higher you go, tough exams you will face. Any sorrow or chaos is an exam you have to pass through, keeping calm, and towards tranquility.

Never forget, life throws happiness and sadness to everyone, it is just timing, that is different for all, the one who was sad yesterday is happy today, and the one who is sad today, will be happy tomorrow. Both of these sides keep changing for everyone, turn by turn. All this process is to make you feel more jubilant towards life and to make you enjoy every reason to smile.

And when you will face all the happiness and sadness, the only thing left will be peaceful harmony and benevolence, between body and soul, or inside and outside.

When you are sad and can you see what is making you sad, is it worthy of being sad and leaving the chance to smile with the person sharing a good news with you?

When you are happy and won some award, can you see the happiness of yourself and feel the sadness of your opponent, the one who could not win?

Towards tranquility…
