Now is the Time #SoulfulSunday

My mind is a blank slate today. This happens sometimes. Who am I kidding! This happens often. Especially when I sit down with the intention to write. 

But today my mind is exceptionally quiet. Like a seashore with no waves. It feels wrong. 

Since this is the first soulful Sunday writing of 2021 I don’t want to excuse the blank state of my mind either. 

I can say with confidence that 2021’s entry made me happy. It gave me hope. I, along with my mind, continued to be in the restful state which started the week prior. I did attempt to write a poem which put me back in a writing state of mind but I never got around to finishing it. It turns out although I didn’t do much in the first two days of the new year I feel hopeful. This is how I would like to keep feeling throughout the year. 

Now is the Time

A new year somehow brings a fresh vibrancy to our good old lives. That’s just amazing. But do we have to wait for the new year to experience that freshness? Can’t we just decide now is the time and taste the vigor at any point in time? 

Of course, we can. Maybe that’s something I should keep in mind – every month, every week, every day, every hour, every minute, every second, is new and brings that novelty much like a brand new year. 

On a new year’s day, I am open to possibilities that I experience the freshness without any reservations. Every moment is new and fresh. And anything is possible if I’m ready for it. 

So I’m making a promise to myself – to not take it as an excuse that the beginning is past me to start something new. Because any time is good to start fresh if we desire so. 

Now is the time to begin. Right?

Written for #SoulfulSunday, an exercise to nourish our creative side, by listening to a 10 minute guided meditation followed by 10 minutes of writing, formulated by Esha and supported by Shilpa and yours truly on Sunday at 7 pm IST.

You are welcome to join this meditative writing session!

  1. Absolutely, dear Vinitha—anytime is great for making a fresh start and I’m so glad that you didn’t let yourself get side-tracked by other things to go into a downward spiral which happens to the best of writers all the time. I love our writing exercise that makes us look at writing anew and encourages us to look at things in a slightly different way. Keep at it, dear and keep them coming. I love your writing and I know 2021 will bring out some of the best pieces from you, once again.

  2. Yes, now is the time to begin! If not now, then when? As you said, every second is new! 🙂 I like this attitude, Vini. Every new second, every new day is a gift to us so that we can begin afresh. Why wait for a particular day to do so?
