bee..eep bee..eep..beep..beep.. alarm dutifully rings. She slowly & unwantedly open her eyes, switched off the alarm. “what!! night was so short..it passed so fast.” She smiles 🙂 as flashback sweeps her eyes. She wants to sleep more like she saw herself in flashback but she has to wake up now. “come on wake up, beautiful day is waiting for you beautiful lady :)” She smiles 🙂 again AND with a kiss on his cheek and forehead, she get off from bed.
Morning activities. She spray pain killer on her back, right knee and gets ready for the office. Prepares tea, Cook food. She think of leaving some work, but try AND complete everything, AND happily 😀 goes to office with him.
She almost shattered like a innocent child after a discussion with boss. A tear was just about to touch her eyelashes AND she smiles 🙂 and get back to work. During lunch time she hears her colleague saying-“ma’m usne to shadi ke pahle hi bol diya tha..” and the discussion continues about a girl’s new life after marriage. “True, people make their own choices and decisions.” is all she said with a satisfied smile. His phone call gives her more energy than the food 😉
After the hectic 9 hour office, she is very excited getting back to home sweet home. While completing some routine work her colleague’s words enter her mind. Her expectations rose if she had a stressful day at office..she starts self-talk. “I will do either this work or that.. ok fine complete this then will sit..ok..one more than have some rest..fine just this one..” AND eventually she finish off all 😛 She gets carried away by some thoughts, but then she stop..think.. AND smile..this is her choice.. her decision.. she is happy..she is satisfied while serving dinner.
Every day, every moment, she was faced with the most common dilemma as an Indian traditional girl. At every stage she smiles, create and use her own AND. In fact using AND reduces the negatives in any relation..is what she learnt from her mother.. She can be a unsatisfied housewife OR a hard core professional but she created & used her AND. Now she is a happy, satisfied & proud 😀 working housewife. She has chosen her path.
Besides all these ANDs there are various more.. She writes AND paint AND with him she fulfills her every little dream..from learning a foreign language to learning Violin. Yess..she loves playing violin. This is her way of life. This is what defines her personality.
After dinner, she goes with him for walk. Hand in hand. The serenity, the peace, the satisfaction..she just can’t say in words. She is like afresh as a morning bud now. All stress gone, every pain relieved, no negative thoughts. All the day’s pain is worth this moment. wow..there is no AND here 😉 no need of it at all. Sleeping in his arms and waking up by his side..She will do anything for these moments. She stares at his face while he sleeps. She do not want to blink in minutes and hours. He is the remedy for her pains. His one tight hug and all her broken pieces sticks back together. His one smile took away all her past fears, his one touch mend her broken heart, his one kiss gave her hope and inspiration, the way he loves her make her feel love could last.
