Sharing an excerpt from yesterday’s thoughts:
I was really happyyyy today. I don’t know why. Maybe because I slept peacefully last night. Maybe because I heard some soothing flute music first thing in the morning (Yeah, I know I’m not a music person but it sounds beautiful. But trust me I can’t listen it for hours. I have been there, totally not my thingy). Maybe because I wrote that scene today (It just switched on on my creative thinking. It was too deep. I really felt it all). Maybe because a story, that I hadn’t expected to work, worked. Maybe because I ate that delicious cake. Maybe because it was Mumma’s bday. Maybe I just wanted to be happy. And didn’t really need a reason to be happy.
I do believe that one should not need reasons to smile. You should smile just like that.
Feeling happy does make me feel beautiful. Happy is beautiful.
Ever passed a smile to a stranger you see walking on the road? I know it sounds crazy. Years back, when I was in school, an uncle used to cross my path every morning. He used to wish me ‘good morning’. I didn’t know him. The shy me ignored him on the first day.
On the second day, I passed a smile out of courtesy. I thought he might be knowing my parents. It continued for almost a year. After that, school got over. I stopped taking that path.
Years later, I saw him one day. He probably didn’t recognise me. I had grown up. But I recognised him. Mumma was with me. I asked her if she knew him. She didn’t. He was a stranger. He had forgotten me, yet I passed him a smile. I did miss his greeting.
What makes you happy?
