Indifference is easy, detachment is hard. To be happy with or without – nonetheless – is tricky. It is easy not to expect, but the tough part is to not let the expectations weigh your happyness down. Detachment is like the extra layer of icing on your already pretty and tasty cake – having which, would be delightful; but missing the extra frosting wouldn’t hurt either.
There are days, so strongly etched in your memory that you can never forget. That day, was one such day. It was the first day of Grade 11 – a day of new beginnings, making new friends and opening new chapters in the textbook of life. It was the day I met them, the RDS to my H!
I remember the way you looked at me when I woke up from my sleep, with my head resting on your shoulder. I could feel some ruffles around me, little did I know you were trying to take pictures of me asleep.
This post is a dedication to a dear friend of mine – Trudy, who is sunshine and warmth wrapped in a person. Trudy and I have been co-workers and thanks to the water cooler talks, we got to know each other as friends. She would talk to me about her day so far, her Christmas decor ideas and her passion for art and that’s how we connected and became friends. Although she is decades senior to me in experience, she is so respectful and shares so much of her wisdom. I love listening to her stories and asking her questions 😀
