I, me and myself

A little more than 3 weeks into my new job and I've almost settled into my morning routine! Oh well, that is indeed a surprise! I, who firmly believed that the sole purpose of early morning sunshine and breeze was to enhance the depth of my morning slumber, have learnt to appreciate the calm serenity of the mild sunshine and the delightful spring breeze that plays with my tresses while I make my way to work through the ugly rush hour traffic of Dhaka city.Yes, the traffic is a huge turnoff, otherwise I pretty much like the Spring mornings right now !

Ever since I've joined my new job, the days seem to whiz right by without my noticing. The impatient weekdays swoop in before I'm done caressing the lovely weekends that enjoy bundling me up in their arms and whispering sweet lullabies to keep me snuggled up in my bed all day. The only activity I've been able to get done these past 3 weekends is lazying in and around my bed sharing stories from work with the hubby and stuffing my face with junk food while watching movies and cricket matches with friends. Oh, so the stayovers and lounging around with friends in PJs should count too. But what went grossly neglected was some quality 'me' time. Over the past few weeks, I don't think I was able to get a moment to myself, moments which I thoroughly enjoy and truly need in order my maintain my sanity around others. So today, I decided it was way too long overdue and so I shut myself up from the rest of the world with a magazine and treated myself to a heavenly pedicure. While my feet rejoiced at the feeling of having all the accumulated burden from the long-dead cells sloughed away, my soul enjoyed the quiet conversations with my heart while my brain sighed with relief at having a respite from the obligation to operate continuously without rest. Ahhh, it was a good Friday indeed!

I feel the free time for thyself is so important, it helps us not only to reflect back but also to visualize future...
