No, not just when you are watching a movie at the cinema, in life too 🙂
Have you ever felt this infinite peace and calm when there is silence all around you? If it happens for an extended period of time, it will probably bore you out! But, it’s great in healthy doses..
This whole week has been so relaxing and probably with the appropriate required amount of golden drops of silence. It has been mostly quiet — (and I do pause for a moment and think — is it the weather, am I getting old!), how is the usually over-active and restless me so happy with this pace of life.
I feel appreciative of this time maybe because it is in such contrast to the daily buzz that goes on throughout the year. You’re always doing something, rushing toward the next thing: rush hour drive, work in the morning, to the gym, pending house work, planning weekend activities, holidays, phone calls to be made and the list goes on. But right now, it has been just the right mix of everything else — meeting up with friends, dinners, movies, books and then just spending time not doing much at all.
As this year draws to a close, I’ve been reflecting on the happenings of the year and it is nice to be feeling happy and thankful. There are always ups and downs and things you loved and some you didn’t get a kick out of. But, if at the end of the year you can ponder over and have mostly a good feeling, you are in a great place.
I could not have asked for a better way to end the year 🙂
P.S. Happy holidays everyone!
