Not been feeling quite well the whole month of September. I have been under the effect of weather for a week and in the midst of that, I realize that my brain probably needs a break.
I have had pains in the neck and shoulders and the headache that occurred on one side of my head and wasn’t going away. I realized that it just a bad posture and because of working on the sofa for way too long. So, I took some time away from these things and decided to set up a new corner for writing at home and away from home too. And during that time I tried to do the things that made me felt better. I spent more time with my sister. I tried to stay extra close to my loved ones especially with my sister to stay focused on what truly matters the most. Usually, we don’t make quality time for each other, to spend together. So, I’ve decided and dedicated my whole week spending time with my sister. As my sister now has become the busiest person on the planet, Earth.
We talked, gossiped and chatted the whole night. We talked and laughed like there is no tomorrow. We cooked for each other. We discussed and planned so many things all along. We spent the whole month partying, shopping, exploring.
I went for my morning walk after several months. I forgot how good it makes me feel, how much better my mood is when I finished walking. It was a tiny thing, I did for my mind, body, and soul as I was going through with tension headaches and I think and feel that exercise and morning walks are quite enough for relaxing muscles. A kind of exercise and walks that raise your heart rate to that extent like you huffing in between is truly an elixir for the mind, heart, and body. The things I did to feel myself best, came out to be a pick-me-up.
Somehow you always see yourself as a kid, the one with the least amount of responsibility and the most amount of leeway. In the midst of all that I realized, how our elder sisters are such blessings for us. I am always so touched by seeing how strong she is and she devoted her life for us. How can I thank my Lord for giving me the sister like her?
Selfless care, love, devotion every day, every single day, no matter how tired she is. Today I am appreciating her more than ever what she truly has done for me at every step of the way, from that time when I was a teenager to what I am today.
What has remained constant has been her utter devotion to being the best sister, friend, caretaker, a guide and a confidant at every step of the way. She still babies me and I don’t want it to ever change.
A trillion posts of gratitude cannot be enough. May Lord grant you a hundred years full of beauty both internal and external. May you reach the greatest heights of love, happiness, peace, and success. Alongside a never-ending supply of books to read, aesthetic photography moments and all your favourite yummy and healthy eats. Amen to that.
I would like to end this ramble with this beautiful brief quotable passage that perfectly sums up my entire month of September.
“And, finally, we do coffees and breakfasts, and running to catch trains and trams, and walking and talking about the times we thought we couldn’t get through but we did.” – A.W.
