Every morning we wake up and run. Run to keep the house hold running. Run to catch that bus and metro. Run to reach home before child returns from school. Run to stay prepared for next day. Run endlessly.
Just before passing out, mind wonders what we forgot? Was the milk back in refrigerator? Or is there garam masala in stock? Did Maa took her medicine before sleep?
Think. What you forgot today? What you forget often? Did you smile when you woke up? Or at your neighbour as you dropped garbage? Did you call your bestie when it’s not her birthday or anniversary? Or said I Love You to parents before that hurried bye? What about the gratefulness of having a good human as spouse? Ever said thank you to your in-laws?
When was the last time you loved yourself?
Pause. Stop. Breathe and smile. Remember to show gratitude.
