Divine happiness – Day 37

Can’t write a long post now. I have been going to bed late for past one week and keep that as an excuse to not go to gym in the morning. What if I pass out while working out or during daytime for lack of sleep? Yes, yes I can stay awake till midnight and wake up early next day for anything but not gym. What if I pass out in middle of the day? You got the drift? So, after all that energetic post last Thursday morning, here I am after a week doing pathetic with my food and workout. Have struggled to even reach 5k steps every day but happy side if I may convince myself, getting many other things done especially at work. Making good progress with my baby project that is so dear to me.

Did I say I can’t write a long post now? Now that rant is out of my system, let me get to the true happiness part of the day. I absolutely can’t skip recording this here.

Today eve, we happened to go to Adi’s school to attend a concert and on the way back visited nearby temple for quick darshan. I made kesari at home and took it to temple. The priest assisted to offer the kesari to God and then distributed to all devotees right away. He then spoke to me briefly, collected my details and shared about the plan to request devotees to bring prasadam at 5:30am for next one month as it is an auspicious tamil month starting tomorrow (Margazhi maasam) and they plan to chant suprabatham and perform pooja at 5:30am every day.

Guess what, I got signed up for 1st Jan 2018. Can’t think of a better way to welcome the new year. I have to prepare and carry one sweet and one savory on 1st Jan at 5:30am to the temple. It was a moment I felt true happiness thinking of the odds of this happening. Why should he choose me to share the details? Why didn’t anyone sign up for 1st Jan yet? Why did I choose today to go to local temple which is a very rare occurrence these days? I don’t even remember the last time we went to this temple as a family.

So, lesson learned is what is meant to happen will happen. Do not fret over things not in your control. Just go with the flow of life and be happy. Be good, do good.

Hope I am not jinxing it and looking forward to execute it with no hurdles.

Tomorrow is family holiday event at my office. I am taking LHB along. The girl doesn’t want to take off from school for these silly reasons. So, it is going to be mommy son day. Gone are the years when I was excited to go in car. My son is now excited to go in train. Kali yug I guess!!!

And that is my short post **rolls eyes heavily**

P.S: It is 1:30am. Have been working and blog hopping until now and just realized that I didn’t start the dish washer though it’s fully loaded. So went downstairs to start it and that little sleep on the corner of my eye is also gone now 😦
