Stars. (Monday Moments #35)


          She left her office at 8 pm. She was tired of how she always got screwed by politics. She was tired of not wanting to play games at work. While driving home, she got stuck in traffic which made her an hour late at home. Once she was home, her roommates started discussing renovation of the home with her. One of them wanted to renovate and the other didn't. Their bickering had become a headache. She took her cup of coffee and a sandwich. She was out of the apartment and heading towards the building terrace. She entered the terrace and a cold breeze welcomed her. That was the best welcome she had received that day. She climbed up the water tank and sat. She had her sandwich. She enjoyed the hot coffee on her cold lips. And then she lied down, facing the sky. She looked above at the stars. And the stars looked at her. She was above all the politics, noise and fights. She was beyond the chaos and peace was within her now. She relished this silence after a frustrating day. She found some sanity as she saw the stars twinkling. Looking at the sky soothed her. Some people prefer to watch television while some read. But she was made for stars. As the stars calmed her down, she was now ready to face the world. At that moment, if it weren't for those intriguing stars, she would've still been a piece of chaos instead of a piece of shine.

  4. So lovely! Your writing is very inspiring. Today's takeaway from your post: It's important to take time to step outside of the chaos and reconnect with what's truly important - the world around us that is timeless and beautiful. The problems of today will still be there when we return to deal with those issues. But we'll be able to do it with a more rested mind and a clearer focus on the issues at hand and the best solutions.

  11. One of the entrancing things that a short break in Wales conveys is the opportunity to take occasions in Pembrokeshire which is one of the exquisite areas in Wales. Pembrokeshire is a genuine delight that can't go undervalued. http://www.mordocrosswords.com/2016/03/take-breather.html
