Recently, I had written about what makes one truly happy here, Of Random Conversations with the Soul #1

Just as I had mentioned there, Happiness means different things for different people and different things at different points of time. There are a lot of things which would make one happy. Today I was extremely happy.

The reason, I was at Home! Home Sweet Home!

I love being at home. From Mom’s food, to my Rocking chair , My eternally well stocked Fridge and My swing I love the place so much that I really don’t feel like going out most of the time. I mean, it’s all there here, why would I even bother going out?

Coming back to what made me happy, Today in specific. I am a big time Foodie. I love tasting new cuisines and experimenting and trying out new dishes . So when mom treats me with her special delicacies, I would be on cloud nine. Today was one such day. Since I was at home, Mom asked for what I wanted and I asked her to prepare a few of my favourite dishes.

I ate to my heart’s content. Enjoying every bite, enjoying the taste and the mix of flavour, exactly the way I like. Relishing it bite by bite, slowly, so that I do not miss that moment. I asked for another helping and tried a different combination, ensuring that the taste would not get affected, since I’m very particular about it. I enjoyed every mouthful and mom was happy that I was enjoying it. After what seemed like eternity, I was done with lunch. The Rocking chair was so inviting and I sat there trying not to fall asleep.(Unda mayakam). In the ensuing battle, I Β very conveniently allowed sleep to win and dozed off for about 20 minutes(Power Nap).

What more did I need? I ate to my heart’s content and slept well when my brain said I should take a nap. There was nothing more important than me having to listen to my mind and oblige.

Post my power nap, I felt truly happy. I don’t know why, I don’t know the reason, but somehow I felt happy and rather than trying to ponder the reason,I decided I might as well savor the moment.

As I always insist, It’s the Small things in Life, that matter the most!
