One of my favourite memories of childhood is, going for an exam on a rainy day.
Because of the following reasons:
1. Freshness of air and the smell of the earth on a rainy day just calms the anxiety to a great extent, and it used to do so back then as well.
2. Mess as well as joy it used to create amongst kids. More squeeling and screaming with joy than the usual. 😂
3. Cool breeze and cool weather makes me think better, and it used to back then as well.
4. No morning assembly. What a relief !! It means lesser physical movement and thus more energy stored that could be used in writing AND more time to revise last minute. Literally no mental distraction.
5. Rain usually makes me happy-happy right from my very childhood. 💃💃💃💃💃
People hype so much about meditation in terms of taking a separate time for it, maintaining a posture, eyes closed etc. etc. that it’s almost impossible for them to comprehend that someone can be in a constant state of meditation without doing a specific set of actions and postures for maintaining that state. Meditation is all about deep breathing, clarity of thoughts, and mindfulness. If you are just obsessed with its trendy and fancy part, then you are just a ball of mess with a veil of spirituality over you, which will not serve you or anyone else in the long run.
Meditation, mindfulness, spirituality, soul connection to oneself- They all begin and stay inside of one’s mind.
Sitting by the side of an open window, Sipping on warm mug of coffee, and journaling your thoughts pure, lively and full of love regarding future, while it’s drizzling outside, is one of my most favourite vibes.. ❤💫
As much as I am growing up or growing older, I am going back to my nature as it was in my childhood. You never know, when all that shit happens, whether you are becoming a different new person or just coming back home to yourself..
