Write about a treasure you have.
This is a prompt of a “7 day long writing festival” on a bloggers group I follow. I wanted to participate but backed off due to rakhi. I am travelling from 5th of the month till 9th. But this prompt made me think. I am writing this in the car while my 5 months kiddo takes her power nap in my lap. (oh yes, she rarely sleeps more than 20-30 mins in one go)
Is this girl sleeping in my lap is my treasure?? Or this man sitting to my right driving the car, whom I loved like anything is my treasure? Or my mother who made me what I am today, or others who have taught me, shown me the true colors of this wicked world ?? (oh but yes am really thankful to those people). Or books, my first vehicle or any of these material things I have, or these friends, family or any other immaterial relationship. What treasure I have??
This prompt made me think real deep. What is that ACTUAL treasure I have?
Nothing from the above list qualify 110%. I thought a lot. To be frank, I didn’t love anything from the above para that much, so that I can say I will cherish it as a treasure.
Since last few years I have seen a lot, learned a lot. And now I realize that I love myself the most. Yes you can call me selfish if you want. What I think is, we love others only till they are helping, or in some way or the other, are aiding towards achievement of our goals. I won’t be stretching this long. Those who understand will understand, those who don’t will never will.
So here it is. What I love most and want to cherish, want to behold as my treasure is ME. The treasure I have is the feeling of self-realization towards myself and this life. I no more love anyone but me.
This post is really impromptu and has no intention to hurt anybody’s feeling.
P. P. S – Who cares!! I learned and now I am happy 🙂
