“The best things in life aren’t things.”
With the passage of time, the one thing that I’ve realised about happiness is that it is within us all the time even when we are looking outwards to make ourselves happy. The basic premise that runs through our lives is this— the more we chase happiness, the more it becomes elusive. We live so much of our lives in the obscure, unacknowledged moments, waiting for something extraordinary and special to happen, that will make us happy—one, that probably never comes, leaving us disillusioned throughout our lives. So much of our struggles stem from this notion that we have to work hard at being happy. And, yet, we fail to recognise that happiness is within us. The everyday moments bring enough reason to fill us with gratitude and happiness follows as a by-product. The most obscure moments of our lives have a beauty and a charm all of their own, that completely defies all descriptions and labels.
Capturing sky pictures brings me that kind of bliss, that calms the mind and fills me with joy. Transitory, fickle moments. Short-lived yet real. Every sky tells a story. This is what my sky tells me—stories captured from my living room window at different times of the day.
Sharing two sky shots from the recent weeks from my part of the world. What do you think of them?
