song to listen to while reading: "i hope you dance" by leann womack
it's amazing what a vacation can do for you.
i was living with my eyes half-closed, dragging myself through each day of work, enjoying small things like long chats with my close friends, walks around my office after lunch, nice music, the occasional good movie...you get the drift.
then i took a one week vacation to goa.
it was amazing. it's been months since i've woken up at 1pm on a monday afternoon, walked in the sand and got my feet wet with cool seawater in the peak of noon, roamed miles of tree-lined roads on a bike in shorts and bathroom slippers, partied till i could party no more, stayed up all night talking with my best friends everyday.
it was exactly what i needed.
now, i'm back in bombay. last night was one of my best nights of sleep in months. i even woke up early today morning.
and then i realised, i don't need a vacation to enjoy my life. i have the most amazing life as it is. i have everything i could possibly want: a family that loves me to bits, a challenging but fun job, enough of free time, friends who make me feel good by just being there, and someone who i want to spend the rest of my life with.
for all of you out there...here's a big hug, from me to you. may you find the beauty in your life, sooner rather than later.
and i hope you dance too.
