The Moment Filled With Peace

The Moment Filled With Peace

The slanting rays of the sun gave an orange tinge to the sky. Rekha took a stroll around her office one last time. She packed her things with impassivity and carrying her belongings in a carton box she entered the elevator.


"You need to keep yourself updated. To have a stronghold in this competitive world you need to learn new things. Your juniors have performed better than you. We don't need your services anymore. You are fired," The words of her boss reverberated in her ears.


Tears rolled in her eyes but didn't course down her cheeks. Over years she has developed the ability to control her emotions. As she stood at the bus stop pictures of her two-year-old daughter, elderly mother in law and her husband who toiled all day to make ends meet flashed before her eyes.


Her job wasn't a luxury or pastime but a necessity to her. Her paycheck in amalgamation with that of her husband's ensured a comfortable living for her family. Her husband would be coerced to shoulder the responsibility of the entire family now.


The honking of the bus brought her out of her reverie. She got onto the crowded bus and spent an hour amid the commotion. The tumult in her mind and standing for more than an hour made every muscle in her body sore. Her head pounded. She returned home weary.


She greeted her mother in law and walked into her room. Dropping herself off the bed she began to weep profusely. She had put in her blood and sweat while she worked for the firm. She couldn't fathom as to how the management could be so insensitive. She wasn't given any notice. Suddenly, she heard a mellifluous voice. She got up and looked in the direction of the voice. Observing her daughter crawl towards her she wiped her tears. She carried her bundle of happiness in her arms and kissed her. Her daughter caressed her cheeks with her soft and little hands. Rekha felt as though her daughter was asking her not to cry and everything would soon turn to be okay.

Her daughter's innocent smile calmed the tumult in Rekha's mind. One look at her daughter and Rekha forgot her worries temporarily. She was at peace with herself. She felt as though her surroundings were tranquil.


Stroking her daughter's hair, 'Everyday i have two options, to be happy or sad. I choose to be happy. I will keep my mind calm and tranquil. My inner peace is a priority to me,' thought Rekha.

She walked into the bathroom and she splashed cold water over her face . She walked into the kitchen and made tea. After feeding her daughter the baby food, she sat in front of her laptop and began to prepare a resume.


She chose not to give up. Her daughter's smile filled with purity filled her mind and heart with peace. She knew that she would sail through the water of difficulties and reach ashore safely.
