Navigating through Life with Music in the heart !!

The fantastico impact of  travel blogging led to music in my heart, and kept my spirits pepped up to navigate through life with ease!! Yes, I have experienced it. I took to blogging some time back; writing for myself initially until others appreciated and I realized that there was a wide large world with whom the words resonated to good measure.Dholavira Road

I loved this medium of expression which allowed me to go back and ponder over how I felt on a certain day. Invariably, I would read all that I had written with a smile on my lips and often doubled up in laughter on some emotionally charged posts. My blog became my sounding board, my drawing board, my soul search where I shared thoughts and views without bothering about being judged.

When I started to blog on travel; I found connections and interconnections that I never knew existed; it opened up a whole new world. I began to notice everything in a different light, I was more grateful than ever before, certain sense of calmness prevailed, in every place I found home and all the people I met helped me learn a little more about myself. The fantastico impact of travel blogging was sinking in slowly and steadily; I was becoming more mindful than ever before. It actually cracked open my heart; allowed music into my soul which until then was confined to my ears. The best tunes came from nature; from the gurgling stream, the whistling winds, the sounds of birds and the unhurried footsteps of the docile four legged creatures. Suddenly, I had time on hand which allowed me to celebrate each day; watch the colours of the sky change at sunrise and sunset. I was noticing the flowers bloom; the riot of colours that appeared on the side walk at spring time and somewhere there was spring in my step and I was feeling peppy and excited about each moment.Varanasi Sunrise

I often asked myself if this shift was permanent; was I living a dream; was it actually happening to me ?? I had changed lanes I realised; from the fast paced one to a much slow paced one. The fast lane on the high way required me to move, just move and apply hard brakes when required and fuel up when necessary; a momentary pause to look away from the goal would cause an undesirable moment. The slow lane which I was cruising through now; allowed me to just be; as I navigated on the highway, often taking some unplanned exits through lanes and by lanes; pausing and stopping to admire natures creation around.  I was living a different feeling !!

You guessed it right; our body is like a car; a very sophisticated machine but needs to be navigated through life so that while it takes in all the impact of the undesirable; the music in our soul is intact and we don’t forget to lead each moment as a peppy moment

    Sangeeta, I think blogging opened up for you a form of practicing mindfulness! how amazing 🙂 maybe the change came when you started to think about telling the stories to other people, about how you were seeing, living and feeling. Now you have found a gift and you can inspire others to reach for it.
