Dear Isheeria’s Healing Circles Readers,
This is the month of LOVE, it is the month of heart shaped candies, heart shaped cards, heart shaped everything, and the very expensive roses!
I am sitting on the fence about this ‘Festival’ – While I do appreciate the excuse/ the bahana of a celebration, I do wish that we took the time more often to appreciate those we love!
(I do wonder if there is any special significance to the fact that, the month of Love also is the smallest month of the year!?? (Now, here I can almost hear some snickering by my you-know-who, who tells me, the difference is only 2-3 days! Pffft! Romantic much?! ))
Now, our story begins like most other stories… we were part of the same common-interest-in-travelling group, we used to all hang out, make dreamy plans of journeys ad nauseam over endless cups of coffee, & be happy in doing just that! He liked me – I was clueless!
With the help of a friend prodding him on, and dropping hints & insisting today was the day he would speak out, we kind of ended up with a confession of sorts from him & a blushing-caught-unawares moment for me!
Said friend even gave me a ‘guarantee’ about the ‘good’ ‘boy’ he was (IS, or not, is something I am confused about every day!).
Thus has begun, our friendship in earnest, our getting to know each other with a mind to that famous ‘happily-ever-after’.
We have our ups and downs and our arguments (modern Indian woman, anyone?!) and discussions – but at the end of the day, WHO HE IS, has become more important than what he says or even does sometimes (He thinks puchkas are the greatest street food ever (blasphemy, I say!); I am in love with my gol-gappas!).
I may not get those expensive roses, but I know, I will have someone to share my dreams with over endless cups of masala chai (Tea) & Coffee. And to me, that IS the #MagicOfLove.
I wrote a little poem too about love here 🙂
A dhobi list of everything I love as on date, in no particular order (I hope my list does grow over the years) –
#Gratitude to my #Love #List – A Thank you – for existing – in this world – for real or imaginary or illusory or just as a concept!
