The idea of experiencing a perfect setup always seems to scare us. Mostly because we think that they are just fantasies , and however hard we try they cannot come true . And given our busy lives , the thought of these ‘perfect moments ‘ appear to be tedious .But if only for a moment we stepped back , slowed down , took a deep breath and observed a little ;we’l see that these moments are all around us . A perfect moment does not exactly mean a “happy ” moment . They are made up of all those moments when our emotions are inexplicable . When we are so consumed and overwhelmed by the sight of what we see , that we are dumbstruck and short of breadth and words !
It could be when you fall in love and feel the world spin around you …. It could be when you loose a loved one and there is nothing that can console you …It could be when you earn your first salary …..or when you loose everything you have and your whole life feels empty .!
All these times don’t resemble each other in any way .But these are the times when you discover yourself , and see your emotional barriers fade away . These times make you vulnerable again and surrender to the moment . And in spite of any emotion they may evoke , they are complete and full of inspiration . That is why i call them “perfect ”
And here’s a lil poem i wrote to tell you just that ….
Somewhere in this little miserable life of ours ,
Come moments that are priceless;
Moments that define us .
They build around us ‘our’ story , as we know it to be.
These moments need not be out of the ordinary
They need not be compared to definitions of grandeur …
They are hidden in the simplest of things and
They await to be discovered in the midst of everyday burdens .
It could be , when you see the sun go down as you hang by a thread in a Mumbai local !
When you smile at the little girl ,selling roses at the signal ,
Or when you feel the cold wind gush against your face ,through the sunroof of your car .
When you notice wrinkles form around your eyes, but you still ‘know’ you’re beautiful !
When you dance away the night and want to dance some more at dawn .
When tears are the only things that can put you to sleep at night ,
And drowning yourself in work seems the only way to forget….
When you kiss someone for the first time and you feel your lips tremble against theirs
And when seeing that one person smile is all that matters anymore .
When one day you realize that you can speak a million words in silence ,but
A million words fall short of proclaiming the beauty of a moment shared .
These moments make all the difference ,
And a fraction of a second is all it takes to spot these perfect moments.
These are the chosen moments that are void of all imperfections
These moments are what make you ;
