A few moments of joy…

… amid the chaos called life.

When was the last time you cherished a sunrise or a sunset? When was the last time you got drenched in that monsonn rain? When was the last time you truly enjoyed the first snow in winter? When was the last time you went out for a moonlit walk? When was the last time you stopped to listen to birds chirping? When was the last time you enjoyed the little pleasures of life instead of taking them for granted?

From time to time, I get so carried away in the memories that mark the past, the ever-changing waves of the present or the unpredictable future. But there are these moments of pure pleasure I experience amidst all the chaos. Today, my moment of joy was the rain that I woke up to – it brought immense joy.

What is it that I exactly feel on a rainy day? What makes me love rain so much? How can just a few moments watching the raindrops fall give me all the comfort I can ask for? Every time I live through a rainy day, I desperately try to find words to describe what my heart wants to say. And all my efforts have always been hopeless.

There is something so appealing and captivating about rain. Rain, the image of purity, transforms me, my mood. Everything around me appears to be part of a paradise. Everyone, somehow, seem to perfectly complement my state of mind. Everywhere, serenity prevails. Rain fills me with a delight for life. Rain brings out the child in me. Rain encourages me to aim for perfection. Rain immerses me in so much zeal for life. Rain becomes a source of my inspiration to make others happy in the smallest ways possible. Rain makes my heart grow in fondness. Rain sets fire to my romance with life !

And life is good !

What is it that brings out that spark in you every once in a while?

PS: Thank you to all my dear readers who wrote to check if all is well with me. I’m really grateful for all the attention and care you have sent my way !

    I was about to write “Rain rekindles my romance with life.” But thought it would be more apt maybe twenty or thirty years form now. So will save that for later…

    Thanks !

    haha..well said! Rekindle has delicacy, it lacks the passion of “sets fire”. The difference between a gentle, tiny stream and a giant, leaping, roaring waterfall. And I agree, “rekindle” can be used 30 yrs later when the rain will ignite just the memories (well, mostly):-)

    raindrops reminds me of tears. which again means dark memories from past or fear of da future. rain is not fr me.
    sleep brings me peace. after fallin sleepy i can dream bout anything fun or anything nice n that my dear brings me peace n happiness. or just a bright sunny day when u can get out n get work done. now thats like peace of mind when you get some work done, huh?

    BG – Thanks! Yeah, I must definitely thank rain for making me happy every once in a while…

    HA! That’s another way look at it, sure… But don’t you feel some sort of calmness deep inside when you watch the little droplet of rain? Doesn’t it feel magical when a raindrop falls on you?

    If not rain, then what is it that brings you that peaceful feeling (if at all anything 😉 ) ?
