My Happy Place.

There are days when only consistent things in life are stress and total chaos.But a negative mind that results from this can never create positive life.Sometimes we need to take a break from all the noise to appreciate Silence.

As it is very aptly said,”Vacation is what we take when we can no longer take what we have been taking from long“.

Keeping this in mind we all(My brother and his wife who is more like a sister and closest friend to me and myself) took a mini break from the chaotic life and went to Shahpur ,a small village on the outskirts of Maharashtra.My brother has a second home there and that is My Happy Place where I destress and get my thoughts in order.The room is so peaceful with a lot of positive vibes and the scenery outside makes the stress melt away and I can actually feel the tension leave the body.

View from my bedroom

We reached there early morning and after having lunch and some rest,we decided to explore the area and go for a walk…

My bro,sister in law and my daughter.

So we began our walk breathing fresh air purifying our Lungs.These moments of Joy walking under the clear sky,smelling the fresh air makes me realise how beautiful life is and how we waste our time needlessly..

Walking amidst Nature makes one realise the true antidote to exhaustion is not rest. It is being close to MOTHER NATURE.

Home amidst greenery..
Small houses are better than small hearts.
Progress everywhere..A building too in the remote village
On our way we came across our very own cleaning crew…lol
A little siesta time after a hard day’s work.
passing through this lovely greenery to go to the market..

Really there is no better designer than Nature.It is truly an art of God.

A small temple restoring my belief that however tough times may get,faith in God should remain strong.
Another beautiful home.
Rice field…or so I am

This man was sitting,probably relaxing after a long walk and just as he saw us he gave us his blessings praying for our happiness.In the world where our known people may stab our backs for selfish purposes,here was a man whom we had never even seen was wishing us well…

Finally reached the Market.
A small beauty parlour in the village for women to pamper themselves…
A busy market area..

There is no WIFI here but every human is better connected with each other..

A village Panchayat to solve the problems of the villagers..A mini Govt for the village..
Saw this small park on our way back where the kids enjoy their childhood playing in the mud and swinging towards happiness….
Strolling on such roads fills your heart with peace and warmth and really enables you to listen to the wisdom of your soul
The peace of the Nature flows into u as sunshine flows into the trees.
My favourite pic.I simply loved clicking this one..

Being close to Nature makes your heart gentle.You become one with it.No place of greed or anger here.A profound awareness of the Universe that triggers feelings too deep and mysterious for words is what I was experiencing.

But it was getting darker and it was our time to return to the reality of life..Coz as they say, “The woods are lovely,dark and deep,but I have promises to keep,and miles to go before I sleep”…..

So we returned with a heavy heart but relaxed mind and rejuvenated spirits…..

So guys take short breaks

Destress to avoid distress……
