Go with the flow

Just dont overthink is a recent wisdom of sorts; Knowing the unknown helps but overthinking kills it!

A good 45 minutes walk, cycling and greens and a breakfast with Yuvan on a school holiday  is something I would have never thought off! But in the end we both were refreshed and happy, Yuvan asking me, this already being the second time in the week, “Can we do it tomorrow too?”


Kids are not complicated at all — they love simple things… Just like deciding at 6.40 to go to see Kong, the King at 7:-)

 

Spontaneous

is what I have been described as. I have always heard of Yuvan being described with that word too… 

Today we did something really spontaneous and we enjoyed the experience and we both feel very happy and joyful.

It was an unusually early Sunday morning as Yuvan woke up because of a hunger pang (finally…) and so I woke up too.. While I was getting ready for my morning walk (still contemplating) I just asked ‘so you want to cycle as I walk?’ He spontaneously said ‘oh yes!’

We took a route that I knew but detoured to explore the Sengkang Riverside Park with no water bottle and money in hand and wohoo we survived… He had long been asking to cycle at the Riverside Park and so I decided to give it a go!

We not only survived but enjoyed the walk, explored and found out there are bicycle rentals, breakfast places. We enjoyed figuring out the routes, the fresh air and the morning buzz. We also caught a bee sucking nectar upclose which fascinated him…I told myself ‘we should do this again as a family too!’ We also bumped into his friend R. 

For me personally, I loved the whole experience of the morning walk in the park with lush green trees and flowing river, talking with Yuvan and what not! I was ‘present’ with my mind not ‘running’ in the background which was a surprise by itself for me. I enjoyed the NOW – Then and had FUN! New experiences and every experience makes your journey! 

Joy is ever present

around one even in the complicated mindframes. An evening of breeze (Yes, in Singapore), Howzatt u-13 cricket and seeing your child back on the game after a week hiatus with 2 wickets gave me sanity, joy and reassurance!

‘Being’

Posted on

Powerful is not ‘over-powering’ others. Its all about knowing, accepting and facing up to your own strengths and weakness’. It takes a lot of courage and love. Knowing you are supported gives one immense strength… Finding your strength gives you joy!

There are the times when you know you are seen in a perspective that you never imagined to show up but you have no power to control what others think of you. Everyone has thier own say!

 All you can reassure yourself is that you are true to yourself. Acknowledge your feelings and others!

Ultimately, it is what you are and what you believe in. 

I believe in ‘Being’!
