Soulful Sunday

A Weekly Reflection #SoulfulSunday

It’s time for another soulful post, but like most days I come here with no soulful thought in particular. These days my mind refuses to work with me. Then again, I’m not sure if it is my mind that refuses to work, or is it me who refuses to get along with the mind.

I am in a different place. I would like to say I was in a different place in the hope that the coming week would see a motivated version of myself.

Time will only tell!

The past two weeks I was in a rather distracted, dejected, and discouraged space. This week I would like to shift to a space with clarity, visibility, and progress. The mental fog that had swallowed me has put me in a trap from which I didn’t want to break out. It felt comfortable staying as a prisoner of something I couldn’t understand.

When I started to write this post I had no idea what to write. But as I’m typing these words I feel my head feeling lighter. I feel as if the pain is leaving my head. I didn’t even know that I had pain hiding inside my head.

Writing is a therapeutic exercise, isn’t it?

This week is going to be a different one for us with the schools reopening in our corner of the world this Wednesday. This time Akku is starting his preschool and I’m equally excited and nervous. He doesn’t want to go to school and sending him away to school after a gap of almost a year and a half is terrifying for me. Oh yes, they are starting their in-person school this time. Honestly, I have been waiting for the schools to start forever since everything closed down and moved online in 2020 March. But now that the time is approaching, I am nervous. I am hoping and praying for everything to go well.

So many concerns, so many worries! Well, this is called life, isn’t it!

Here’s to a clarity-filled, adapting, and peaceful week ahead.

Written for #SoulfulSunday, an exercise to nourish our creative side, formulated by Esha and supported by ShilpaAnamika, and yours truly.

  1. There are days like that Vinitha and don’t be so hard on yourself. Take your own time and yes, writing as a therapeutic exercise helps a huge deal. Love and light.

  2. Hugs, Vinitha! I hope the week goes well for you and the kids and the pangs of separation are lessened by the day. So glad to hear that you’re finding writing therapeutic and it’s helping you feel better. This too shall pass very soon, Vinitha. I wish you find the clarity, visibility and progress you’re seeking right now…may it fuel you to write more and express yourself the way you know best.
    Best wishes for the coming days.

  3. Hugs,Vini! Some days are such 🙁
    Your kids are going to enjoy being in school, Vini. And, you will enjoy having some time to yourself. It’s just a matter of time.

    Yes, writing is therapeutic. I can vouch for that. And, we are so lucky we can write, we can find some time to write and express ourselves, get rid of the clutter that weighs us down. Keep writing, girl. I hope you feel better, much clearer soonest. <3
