If we’re having coffee, I would first ask you if you would like some hot tea instead, if no then I would sit down in the cosy corner with you, with two mugs of hot filter coffee and some cookies.
I would ask you how you were and apologize for being MIA. Listen to you pouring your heart out (if you want to) and then say my bit or two about it.
I would tell you how life has been busy and how I have been trying to juggle multiple things together, while I love doing that, I like some space and me time. And most days I go to bed exhausted and wake up groggy in the morning.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that in the next couple of days there is going to be a drastic change and I have longed for it for a long time but now that it is near I don’t know how to embrace it. There is so much fear and many well-wishers and friends around me believe that it is a blessing in disguise. I am not sure what it is, but all I know is I will rise from ashes no matter what. No matter how many times life pulls me and throws down, every single time I will get up with more determination.
If we were having coffee I would tell you how rain is such a bitter sweet thing now. While I love the smell of mud, the pitter patter on my window pane, the puddles and mosquitoes are a real pain! I would tell you how I am slowly paving my way to be a fitter version of me.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you how amazing my globe trotting was and how I wished it never ended. Alas, we all know good days or bad days, neither of them are permanent. I would tell you how I gained the extra pounds and for a change guilt free!
If we were having coffee, I would tell you, the past few months have been an emotional roller coaster ride. Time and again, forcing me into bouts of deep introspection but also an immense pain. Nevertheless, I am a little wiser now.
A lot are things are brewing and will be discussed in the next cup of hot coffee. The next time I will tell you more about the new changes and life under those changes.
Till then Ciao!
This was such a lovely and heartfelt post Ramya! And what is that change which you haven’t told me about? Anyways, all the best!
I agree with the mosquito thing! The rain does make me happy though!
I’m also in a similar emotional roller coaster & trying to brave up!
And, thanks for the biscuits 🙂
Here’s sending you lots of hope to take what that roller coaster throws at you next. 🙂 It has been an emotional roller coaster for me since April, but so far, have not sunk, and hope it stays that way.
It has been a pleasure to read you through this Festival of Words, and as part of my smaller tribe. Thank you.
PS: Definitely no to tea. Filter kaapi sounds perfect.
First of all i wish you good luck for the change u are about to face…
It was a lovely post.
Wouldn’t life be mild and flat without occasional roller coasters; Like a less tasteful flat and mild coffee? What do you think?
Hey you are the second blogger who prefers tea. But I’m ok with that. What really matters is the chat and I enjoyed our coffee together.
The rains are over now and it will be back to hot and sticky ….. keep blogging and keep smiling
Change is Good. Best of luck for the winds of change coming your way, all will be well.Agree with you on rains bringing a host of problems in its wake but we can take preventive steps to safeguard our health and that of our loved ones. ‘No pain, no gain’says it all 🙂 Enjoyed the coffee with you.
All the best for your change Ramya. I loved your globe trotting pictures. Come on.. have a good time and tell me about it on the next cup of coffee.
That happens, when something which we wanted to happen for a long time, finally that happens, the fear, the anxiety, it’s a mix of emotions. But it would be okay. I am in an almost similar position now. All the best with your new changes. Loved your heartfelt write up, Ramya. 🙂
wow, what a lovely post. I really liked the fact that you have the strength within and that you will gather yourself and rise out of ashes after all the miseries get over.
Rain is indeed bittersweet. It brings out a lot of bottled up emotions. Wish you luck for whatever you are waiting for. Hope everything is for the good. Take care 🙂
Change is definitely good. I too believe in the rain bringing in problems but it is saying dance in the rain like no one is watching so is the problems also..Enjoyed the coffee with you.
It’s the last day of the challenge and the first time I am visiting your blog but I am glad I did it. It has revealed so many interesting aspects and I loved the writer in you. Hope to come back for more
Change is good for sure. All the best that. May it bring more happiness to you. Loved the post. Heartfelt.
And congrats on completing the fest. It was a fun ride. 🙂
It will be fine, dear Ramya. I promise. Welcome the change, have your me time and you’ll ready to conquer your next venture!
If we were have coffee, I’d pull you close and hug you tight. I’d want to see all your travel pictures and hear about your globetrotting adventures. And then we’d talk about what’s on your mind – and I’d share my 2 cents with you.
