But the point is you create that moment. And you live the moment.
Every morning I take the bus to school and then take another bus from school to the place of my work. The bus to school drops me 30 minutes before the bus to work. In the 30 minutes that I get, I make sure to do something, however petty it may be, to give a cheerful start/kick to myself before work. And for 2 months now, that thing has been clicking pictures.
It may sound cliched. Everyone around us these days happens to have a camera ( a dslr or a non-dslr ) and clicks awesome pictures with every passing day. I have met a lot of people with a passion for photography. A passion to express themselves through the pictures they click. An urge to tell a story with each moment they capture. This is where they create a moment for themselves from an existing moment and live in them.
So do I. I am not an extraordinary photographer. I am an ordinary one who uses most of the times her iPod or cell phone as that’s always in the backpack I carry. If I see trees glistening in the sun, I click it labeling it as a happy moment. When I see birds perched atop a fountain, I capture a moment of sigh. A moment of relief they get by quenching their thirst and cooling their bodies to fight the scorching summer sun.
Every scene around seems to tell a story. And I try my best to frame a moment as a page of the story.
I have been enjoying the 30 minutes of my day. It does cheer me up, no exaggeration.
The entire motive behind me writing this up was to tell myself and to anyone and everyone who reads this, that there’s always something small that will give you great solace. As I write this, I see flashes of Kungfu Panda- 2 before my eyes. “Inner peace!” Well, everyone seeks that, right?
I believe if I do something that I really like to do, I am inching closer to making peace with my mind. And then the mind will build for me a zone where all other tasks seem less daunting and haunting! I do agree that most of us fight with a major constraint called “time”. I have blamed not being able to do a lot of things on time. But with time I do realize that I am the one who is defining my moments throughout the day.
One of the reasons I am writing this is also because I love to write. I had for long lost the habit of writing. The amount of time I spend writing here, I feel I am actually soothing my mind! I should really take some time out for things that I really like to do.
I love food! I guess I will sign off for eating 🙂
Hope you folks enjoy reading this! 🙂
