Every day, our lives are like a beautiful tapestry being woven with unique patterns. I invite you to join me in unravelling the threads that make up a typical day in my life. Together, let’s discover the beauty that is often hidden in ordinary moments and cherish the valuable experiences that often go unnoticed.
Morning Symphony: The Prelude
As the sun begins its ascent, my day commences in the gentle embrace of the morning. The soft hues of dawn paint the world outside my window as I embark on the ritual of awakening. From the aromatic whispers of brewed golden Dunkens’ Darjeeling tea to the quiet contemplation of sunrise, the morning sets the tone for the symphony of the day preceded by a quiet session of meditation and yoga/walk. Sips of golden tea on my swing in my balcony, basking under golden rays of rising sun , I never miss to do my suduko. This charges me to take the day’s work head on!
Daily Quests: Navigating Responsibilities
The clock propels me into the heart of daily responsibilities – a blend of professional pursuits ( I am a freelancer content creator, mainly retired now) and personal commitments. Through the dance of deadlines, meetings (with friends mostly), and tasks, which I assign to myself, I navigate the intricate choreography of productivity, finding moments of triumph in the completion of each assignment.
The mornings are busy monitoring the househelp, planning my writing assignments of the day and meals planning. As the morning help leaves the house, I soak the lentil for lunch and take out veggies and salad on the kitchen slab for K-ben, my cook. Since we eat early lunch, breakfast is usually dryfruits, seeds with or without any fruit. RB loves milk, so he has his coffee mug full of milk. ( dhokha…:)) Time to take bath and be a “chamko”!
Lunchtime Interlude: A Culinary Pause
The midday sun witnesses a pause, a moment to savour the flavours of a carefully crafted meal. Whether it’s a homemade feast or a quick culinary escape, lunchtime serves as a culinary interlude – a pause button allowing me to recharge for the journey that lies ahead.
K-ben arrives dot in time – 11am. She cooks the meal,cleans the kitchen, sets the dining table and leaves after 45 -50 minutes. We ear lunch anytime between 12.30-2 pm. It all depends how metabolism is behaving. No feeling of hunger, no eating.
Afternoon Reflections: A Moment of Clarity
The sun reaches its zenith, casting a warm glow on the canvas of the afternoon. Amidst the rhythm of the day, I find a moment of reflection. It’s a time to recalibrate, revisit goals and aspirations, and acknowledge the achievements and lessons woven into the fabric of time. Time to lie down for that afternoon siesta! I hang in the bed with a book / kindle and in no time go into dreamland!
Evening Serenity: A Gentle Finale
With the setting sun, the day draws to a close, and the evening unveils its tranquil beauty. Whether it’s a stroll, a shared meal with loved ones, or moments of solitude, the evening serves as a gentle finale – an opportunity to bask in the serenity that lingers in the twilight.
Night-time Reverie: The Epilogue
As night descends, the world transforms into a canvas of dreams. The night is a realm of rest and rejuvenation, a time to surrender to the embrace of slumber and embark on a journey into the realm of subconscious thoughts and aspirations.
Finding Grandeur in the Everyday
In the intricate dance of sunrise and sunset, in the mundane and the extraordinary, lies the grandeur of everyday life. This was a day in my life. How is your day?
Love & light!
