Bottle Full Of Emotions...

Bottled up

So this one fine day, I find sea shells tucked away in my closet. I remember keeping them safe so that I will come up with some idea to use them in a beautiful way someday. And that idea struck me that same day. So I ask V if we can execute it, and he was more than happy to take part in it.

Although we've reached only half through, we coloured the bottle in this beautiful aqua-blue. And as I was reading one day, there was a ray of sunlight which made me bring this bottle to be kept against it. I love the effect it has created!

The colour, apt to its name, gives a reflection of water inside it... It made me think on how sometimes we bottle up things inside us. The emotions seem to flow smooth as water, and all we have to do is vent out to the right person. Look at the brighter side - it brings out the best in you, sheds you of the assumptions you have, and makes you look beautiful...bringing out the true colours.

Though it's not as easy as it sounds (for me, at least), all we have to do is let go...

The Smaller Picture

It's a beautiful weather here in Nagpur since a few days and I was walking to my in-laws' place today when some good thoughts struck me.

- How great it has been to have such good friends around, both old and new.
- It feels awesome to know friends relate you to good things in life.
- How enormously lucky I have been to be married to a person who I fell in love with, and who loves me back.
- I have been able to work in an off-beat career.
- I am finding so much time to read and relax.
- I am trying to be better at things, every day.

Oh how I love it when I'm happy :)

The Everyday Ritual

I don't know why I recall this incident today particularly, but I got reminded of it this morning. When V leaves for office everyday, it is a ritual that I stand in the balcony, till he leaves. Pretty much like any other wife I guess. 

He goes near his bike, adores it for a while and patiently pulls it out. And his part of the ritual is that he should look up at me and wave, before he drives off to office. It's become such a habit now, for both of us! So this one day, a few weeks back, he forgot to look up at me and drove off! I was surprised and felt bad that he left without completing the most important part of his ritual (no, not adoring the bike :P)! A few seconds later, I see him pushing his bike backwards to look and wave at me :) And I laughed heartily while looking at him :)

I doted on that incident that whole day, and I fall in love with V all over again, today :'-)
