When the cool wind rushed through the window and engulfed me, it was the time when I have my own Me-Time.
With a cup of coffee, and the caressing of the wind, I was listening to songs from the 80’s and let myself fall into a world of my own, as the night falls deeper into the dark.
Life is always hectic, as if we are chasing behind the clock, and many a times, we complain that we do not have enough time to do what we wish to do, forgetting that other than one’s life term, everybody owns the same amount of time in a day.
More often than not, we spend many hours at work, and what is left after taking away all the daily routines are but just a couple of hours.
We grew up in a world where we seem to be living for others. We studied hard to meet our parents’ expectations, we worked hard for a career, we felt sad or happy for our loved ones, and we laughed because our bosses were laughing and then we worry for our kids, have we ever really thought of spending some time for ourselves and doing things that we really like or be what we really want to be?
Find some time for ourselves, no matter how much time we have. Catch up with old friends, let our thoughts fly, write a blog or read a book, go for window shopping etc. Let go of all the worries and be ourselves.
If we can just sit under the tree and let the moonlight bathe us, watching the moon changing form, and begin to understand the truth of constant change, we might just attain certain level of enlightenment.
I love to stand in front of the windows, and let the caress of the wind triggers my memories, my misses for people I love and at that point in time, I am so close to and yet so far away from them.
Do not complain that there is not enough time to do what we wish, for everybody has the same amount of time. We can’t have best of all worlds and we just need to prioritse and put away some time for ourselves.
Some people seem to be able to organize their time well and their lives seem so perfect. But we need to know, God has never given them any extra time. They have just learned how to make full use of the limited amount of time to their advantage, and yet able to keep some time for themselves.
Be open and learn to let go when the need arises, and live for ourselves. Cherish those moments and let our souls bathe in our own world, let the inner peace that we find during our own time purify the filthiness we have gathered throughout our days, months and years.
I have picked every Friday to have my own Me-Time. I love to let my memories fall into pieces onto the floor, write my diary, listen to my favourite songs. To sum it all, I just want to let my thoughts fly.
Look ahead, but do not depend on tomorrow. Tomorrow is always an unknown, do not be surprised even if we will sleep forever the moment we close our eyes, for we are living in such a filthy world.
Look back but do not attempt to turn back the clock. Recollect the happy moments and forget the teardrops.
NOW is the only reality, a time of our own, something that we feel and sense, why not just indulge ourselves in our own world, and find peace within ourselves?
