We need to proceed in life, to improve, to change. Moving forward is an integral part of life and, sometimes we have to take the toughest of decisions in doing that.
I still remember the evening. Springtime was approaching and the light, redolent evening breeze mellowed down the harshness of winter. After returning from office, I was savoring on a cup of coffee when my husband called up,“My office wants to send me for a six-months training to US, it’s a prestigious opportunity as, I’ll be the first one to go for this specialization. But, I haven’t yet nodded my approval. I want to know your decision. What say, darling?” Yes, my decision mattered for it was only one month of our marriage and, he was not supposed to take his family along with.
We started a journey just one month ago, A journey of togetherness and, it was not easy for either of us to be miles apart for s-i-x long months. But as I said, sometimes, the hardest of decisions are a litmus test for our prudence, wisdom, and success.
But some things are easier said than done! The pangs of separation were too hard to bear. I consoled myself saying, “this too shall pass”.
Six months seemed like an eternity! Then, another evening; the wind was scorching and felt like coming straight from the blower, the humid weather was as annoying as any other day, but, for me, there was a strange symphony in the air. The Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport looked like a dreamy wonderland as I was waiting anxiously, holding my breath. It was like meeting him for the first time, or, even more than it. It was like waking up from a traumatic nightmare to see everything was at the place, everything was fine.
Then he arrived. Without uttering a single word, he hugged me tightly and said,“It’s over, today we will ride home TOGETHER.” It was the most memorable moment of my life. Without him by my side, everything was void. His absence created a vacuum, I lost all enthusiasm and optimism. As soon as he was HOME, all seemed cheerful again! Life was beautiful all over with vibrant hues and shades, full of hope and smile.
I realize that very day, a real HOME is not where a preset GPRS navigation system leads you to, it’s not a place full of expensive furniture and other related household gadgets, a HOME is something else. A real HOME actually consists of those moments which help you look up with optimism, make you feel the presence of someone you love dearly. These moments building on each other like bricks to create a solid shelter that inspires you to move forward and evokes the true feeling of being #together. Life challenges us with hurdles but, the real strength and motivation to conquer those obstacles come from the family. The inner happiness and joy of being #together help us to move ahead, to #lookup.
