Raindrop...2 mins 35 2 mins 35
The year 2020. Full of news, events, challenges making a mark in the history of human generation.
March 23rd, I was informed to stop coming to the office and start working from home. I was happy as I will get to relax and enjoy some days working from home. To my surprise, the happiness vanished in a blink of an eye. I was bored working alone in a small corner of my room. I was missing greeting people on the walk to office who I didn't realize but became part of my life. I was missing dressing up for work. I was missing casual catch-up with colleagues at the coffee machine.
Every time I was talking to anyone, eventually, the conversation will turn to COVID-19 and made me sad and lonely.
Two months have passed, I was sitting by my window, sipping my coffee. Wondering when I will be happy again when I will have my old life back when I will be excited again. While I was lost in my thoughts, a drop on my cheek brought me back to my little corner. It just started to rain. There were dark clouds, the soft smell of moist soil, the sounds of raindrops. Realizing this beauty in nature brought a smile on my face.
I took out my hand, felt the rain. The child in me was awake from sleep. I ran out and enjoyed a dance in the rain. I was happy again
The rain reminded me happiness lies in small moments. Make those moments and enjoy them. It is 1st July, I am still working from my room corner but I am happy, I am lively, I am grateful for the rain of that day :)
