July, so far is the biggest jerk in my entire year. Work has been crazy fun, stressful, demanding and nontheless consuming. Leaving me absolutely no time for myself.
Today is one of those days, I happen to have some extra hours to spare.
I took some time for a little cleansing. I took a dark shower. Where I just shower sans the lights. This ritual never fails to perk my soul up. It helps me slow down, then I slowly realise I’m breathing. It quietens my thoughts and let me feel the total joy of water running down my skin. And I noticed how much I enjoy this. It brings me so much, much needed satisfaction that I always do this with eyes wide shut. Simply because it’s so beautiful.
And then I took time to look at myself in the mirror. I noticed more crow’s feet are forming, and not to mention that my laugh line is embedded deeper into my skin. My eyes look older and definitely wiser.
Wow, I thought. I love this. Whatever you call this, getting older, learning, experiencing everything along with time,places and people.
A thousand memories ran across my mind, and I can almost see the future memories in front of me.
When everyday is a living epiphany, what more could I ask for? It is not perfect, but it’s perfectly satisfying.
