How lucky can one be to find one’s soul-mate, such is the case with me, Yes, I consider myself lucky (touchwood). I am not the superstitious kind, but still, fasting for Mr. Husband one day a year brings joy to my life. Its like a kind of a challenge and this day definitely tests my “faith” in our love and brings a smile to my face at the end of the fast. Its like I can shout out loud, “YES!!! I DID IT!!!”
This year, the day started with joy and vigor. I had several activities lined up like applying mehendi, prepare for the evening puja, choose something traditional to wear etc.
Mr. Husband was (as always) sweet enough to support me throughout the day, maybe by trying to not eat the entire day, or at least not eat my favorites in my front, keeping the water bottles out of sight (and out of mind), taking me out somewhere to kill time etc. So small things, and yet so strongly felt. Since my growing years, I firmly believed that there’s one person out there who can enrich their life in a way that no one else can…my Soul mate. Mr. Husband has always been the one. The one thing that draws me closer to Mr. Husband every time is the fact that he encourages me to express my individuality. He understands me extremely well, be it my sensitivity or my femininity. This post is dedicated to him and I wish him good health and good “everything”.
It was my 4th consecutive Karwa Chauth fast this year and touch wood, I was easily able to sail through the day. Also, as fasting allows for cleansing and detoxification of the body, the activity is good for me too. It soothes the restless mind and promotes inner stillness. So it’s a win-win for both health and religion. The fast ended at around 8.30 PM IST and we went out for dinner (treat from Mr Husband). Mine was overall a fantastic one. How was yours?
