A Moment That Is Only Mine!

Posted: August 16, 2018

In the chaos and drudgery of the monotonous life. I yearn to do something that is only mine.

The moment that only belongs to me. Not stressing over when, what and how things ought to be. The moment that has heart in the right place. Away from the shadows of the busy maddening pace.

That time, I must spend grooming myself, without worrying about the chores and ringing doorbell. For my favorite meal, that I can have, all by myself. The book that I still haven’t read, the thoughts I still haven’t penned. That dress I still haven’t tried; my hair color, that has lost its shine.

That moment, I must spend, learning something new. Or, may I use it to get some extra winks to freshen up as dew. I may not take this moment to reply to messages, not even to clean the passage. The moment I may steal, to spend it with the love of my life or grab my hot cup and stand by the window, to enjoy the lovely sight.

I may take this time to reflect and introspect, or just dance with crazy abandon with full zest. I will neither take a day, nor an hour,  I will just take a small moment to spare.

Let me take a moment, Oh Life! Let me do something that is only mine. For happiness starts with me,  and happy I will always be.
