daffodils | Rittika Dey

Hey, Remember those lines from the daffodils?

"For oft, when on my couch I lie

In vacant or in pensive mood,

They flash upon that inward eye

Which is the bliss of solitude;

And then my heart with pleasure fills,

And dances with the daffodils."

I just wonder, how much time spent with oneself would be enough to write lines like these.

However, I believe solitude itself is a bliss.

Because if you wanna be happy,you need to enjoy every little things in life.

And to enjoy little things in life,you need to feel things,

To feel things, you need to feel alive.

Aaaand to feel alive, you must spend some time with yourself.

In short: You wanna be happy? Spend some classic "me" time.

Also, do you remember your childhood? When you were fascinated by the dew drops on the grass, a butterfly fluttering through the air, or any strange leaf or rock on the ground.

But as we grew up, responsibilities, problems, difficulties and so on took their toll on us, and therefore the magic we once believed in as children, faded and disappeared.

Back in the day, we watched the whole world around us,with glittering eyes but now,as if life lost its magic masala for us.

For instance, just imagine having a nice cup of coffee, having a long walk in woods, sitting on the bench in a park, experimenting with a new recipe, staring out of the window on a rainy afternoon, watching sunset, gazing at the stars -- wait, how long has it been, since you gazed at the stars?

Ah! So take some time to breath.

Make a list of all of the things you love about yourself, organise your thoughts, clean junk file memories from your mind, do something that relaxes you- may it be litsening to your favourite music, or sipping a hot cup of tea while reading a good book.

So, the next time you take a day off, don't just netflix and chill by yourself, because sometimes it's better to daydream !
