Reflection of mind



It was the mid of the week.

I was sad that the weekend was not coming soon.

I was frustrated that the work was never getting completed.

I was irritated that the dinner I cooked carefully turned into a disaster.

I was angry that my spouse didn’t help me with the chores.

I was annoyed at my daughter when she didn’t listen to me.

I looked into the mirror and saw a middle aged woman aging disgracefully.

But something  changed lately.

I decided to be happy and it altered everything else.

It is the mid of the week.

I am cheerful that half of the week is behind me.

I am relaxed that I have enough work ; my project will not be scrapped.

I am secretly happy when the dinner I cook turns into a disaster; now I can order my favorite Chinese food.

I don’t mind when my spouse doesn’t help me with the chores; he needs his time off.

I smile at my daughter’s mischief when she doesn’t listen to me.

Now, I look into the mirror and see a cheerful lady content with her life.

Nothing really changed around me.

It’s I who has changed.

It’s I who started being calm and happy.

Everything else is just a reflection of my tricky mind.
