At times of distress,
When life seems like one big mess
Like the view from behind a black shade
Where Everything looks bleak and grey
When getting out of bed seems like a hurculean task
And you feel like heading outside with a clowns mask
Keeping putting one foot before the other
And just tell yourself I’ll get thru this hour
For everyone, we’ve got only this day
Even when life seems all lovely we will never know how long it is there to stay
The miseries that are at your doorsteps
Are not tattooed onto your life forever
With just a dollop of faith and a grain of hope
Take a deep breath and calmly cope
For When you are on the other side, you will see
How this pain has broken something deeper within thee,
To bring forth light and discard the unnecessary.
So hold on don’t let go…
For another miracle is yet to unfold.
You walk into any store and now you find coloring book for adults!
Proven to reduce stress and help you to be in the moment is their claim and it did help me I would say- atleast to focus and be in the moment.
Along with it, it brought back nostalgic memories of my childhood. Color markers were Rs.12 per pack and it was a luxury. I tried my best to not get over excited and use it completely before the year ends and spend another Rs.12. Then when I look back I see it has been years since I have touched a color marker to draw and color with it.
But now my daughter has a box full of them and I gave myself the permission to get over board and color to my hearts content and the joy I got in return was priceless.
If you haven’t tried this yet, give it a try. Your inner child would surely be happy to have the most important task of choosing the color combination.
