When I am just “ME”

lovely girl with a mug of coffee

It is that time of the day
when I am just “ME”
When I am not a mother, a wife or a daughter
and not a lady of the house
who manages and nurtures a house
so that it is a home, with a soul

I wait for this time of the day
when I am just a girl
who wants to eat instant noodles, all by herself
or, like tonight, toast heaped with butter and jam
when I am feeding just myself
and truly relishing the treat, just for myself

I wait for this time of the day
when I can read, if only a soppy romance novel
when I can write, if only sentimental stuff
when I can walk in my garden, and become one with nature
when I can feel the silence around me
lulling me into a sense of serenity and peace

I wait for this time of the day
when I free myself of all the other identities that I have
of a lioness rearing her cubs, a companion to her spouse
a dutiful daughter to her parents, a nurturer of a welcoming abode
and become that girl
who dreamt a thousand dreams.

And I am glad that the girl still exists.

I am Sapna Dhyani. I write about everything that crosses my mind. I write about life as I see it and like to infuse humour into my blogs. I belong to Dehradun but now live in a new city after every two years, being an army wife. This uprooting of base every couple of years, setting up a new home in a new place, meeting new people and forging new friendships, exploring new cities; all this ensures that I go through and am blessed with a myriad of experiences.
