    Pretty and inspiring colours at your kitchen window. Silence has all the answers. but we are too busy to listen to silence!

    Unfortunately, my Sundays are very hectic and routine. So much action, there’s nothing much I can do about it. πŸ™‚

    Chaos is always in the mind and my mind is the most chaotic thing you’ll ever find on planet earth.

    But now, I’ve learnt to slow down and let go of many many things. These days, I just find myself enjoying a cup of tea on my balcony just enjoying the breeze.

    I guess that’s just what Sundays are for – making pillows out of laundry and letting the mind rest. Since I turned SAHM/WFHM I find I can relax only when I’m out of the house. As long as I’m home there’s always something to do. So even if I;m not doing it, the thoughts are always crowding over.

    Oh my gosh, yes, this: “Letting go is easy but taking it easy isn’t.” I love Sundays when you can just relax and leave the hustle and bustle behind, but it seems to always be pushing in at the edges. I love your window and your view — I feel like you could be my neighbor (until the snow comes). So hard to quiet the chaos of the mind, but a sit on the couch with a hot cup of tea can’t hurt!

    Lovely. I see the face looking upwards in contemplation πŸ™‚

    Oh absolutely! I always have 10 things to do at some time, but on days when I really need a rest, I just let go and indulge in some relaxing techniques to enjoy the moment and just exist without having to remember my chores. If something is important, I’ll somehow do it. If not, it probably was never meant to be done πŸ™‚

  8. Beautifully pictured. I know my wish is for the quiet and the rest – but when it does happen – very rarely – I’m itching to get stuck into something. Never satisfied, that’s me. A field day? Get out of bed on the wrong side?

    U have got a really beautiful picture in there. Iam happy to have met someone who has a racing mind in a relaxed body.Often I too have felt my mind trapped inside my body… typical Sunday hues.

  10. If the outside view is anything like the one in the photo, I would love to keep standing by it. But those tea leaves boiling! They really have deep philosophy bubbling in them. I have myself been philosophical a lot of time watching the boiling water with tea leaves. I have a whole post sitting in my head since ages. And that constant pull between letting go, taking it easy or going with the grind is a never-ending grind. One day you can enjoy the quiet and the next day everything appears as if staring in the face and asking – “bahut aaraam kar liya kal, chalo ab humein thikaane lagao”. My sat and sun were exactly like this πŸ˜€

    My tea boils over at times when I am gazing out my kitchen window, ,leaving me to clean the stove then πŸ™‚

    I love the quiet, I really need more of it. Too much honking and rushing. I hate it at times. Send me some of the quiet will you and let it stay for some time.

    I do that on Sundays…I let the thoughts flow at their own pace, I let life pass by at its own pace. No rushing life on a Sunday!
    Why, God took an ‘off’ too on this day, didn’t He?
    Loved this breezy, flow-y post, Parul. Take it easy, girl!

    You know what, I need that quiet space. I just want to sit and stare at nothing. But then there’s this pull of to-do lists and plans and other trivial things and I give in… Only to wait for another weekend to sit quietly. The rush to get things done has made us so restless. Hope you get your quiet time… 😊

    Amazing read. Very thoughtful. I always feels the rush

  16. I definitely wish for the quiet. I cherish weekdays and the ensuing silence. I’ve realized that I function optimally in low noise. And yes, I also love to just lie around perhaps reading a book or just observing. There is a strange peace in doing that.

  17. I wish for the quiet more than you know. I want to hold on to any time I get where I’m not thinking about or doing multiple things. I like the peace and quiet that the window in your post takes me to.

    That was a long boil for a cup of coffee! Enjoyed the ruminating thoughts that mulled in your head as the water boiled. Maybe you should watch more bubbles boil
