Ahead

No alarm clock had a hand in waking her up this morning.The crack around her bedroom doorframe was the only indication that the day had begun. It is officially the first day of school break. As she stretched in bed, she thought of the day that stretched ahead. All the possibilities, all the choices that are hers to make lay ahead. It was gonna be a good day filled with little adventures. And she was looking forward to it.

An Ode to the Little Things

Bob Marley: a true poet in my books. A man who never held on too tightly to the things of the world and thus lost very little. My eyes are about to feast on words of wisdom and soak up like a sponge the beauty of living.

My cellphone rings; my unlikely friend on the other side, “how about some coffee and a hang out? I’ll bring!” I’m not much of a coffee drinker, but the gesture often means more than its contents.

There are certain people in our worlds that you cross paths with mostly on social media – digital friends, if you like. Once in a blue moon,though, you colide with such friends organically and not only do they sparkle in real life as brightly as they do on your newsfeed, but they also ignite a flame which was lying dormant inside.

Moral of the day? For every setback we experience in a day, there are three blessings to compensate!
