I am trying

I am trying to live in the here and now. to just breathe. be aware of my immediate surrounding. of my state in the present. I am trying to slow down, to listen to sound of the rain, the sweet melody of the raindrops blessing the earth.i am trying to let myself get carried away with every page I read, to close my eyes and really feel the music and not just listen. I am trying to sip on my chai and savour it rather than just mindlessly drink it. I am trying to be thankful for the present by living in it.

One day at a time 

When a weekend doesn’t feel like a weekend,

When things don’t go the way anticipated, 

When that least expected something happens and leaves you disappointed, 

Yet again. 

Take the time to stare out that window. 

The sun is setting

The day is ending 

Your mind and body, exhausted, wanting to give up. 

Take the time to remind yourself to stay in that moment. 

Breathe. 

Watch the sunset. 

Welcome the dusk. 

Let nature help you heal. 

Tell yourself “one day at a time”.

Breathe. 

And know that you deserve moments of calm in those chaotic times.
