On Equanimity

I have met the whole spectrum of people during the past few decades on this planet.

Every character trait or quality that I thought was needed for me to maintain a healthy relationship….well, they have come and gone like the seasons.

After all these years, there is only thing that is a bare minimum requirement now for a friend or family member.

Equanimity.

Because, I am just over that age when I could deal with drama.

Do I sound like an old woman?

Yes, I do.

Because, if you count the storms I have weathered in my life and the oceans and the mountains that I have crossed to get here..I am a very old soul whose soul should have been broken long time ago.

But, I am still here.
Standing.
A very old woman.

With a very young heart.
But, soul not broken despite all odds.
And, just looking for equanimity.

God forbid if that is too much to ask.

  1. You’ve made the ask well and echo my thoughts. Someone came up with this ‘Life-Boomerang’ comparison and all these silly comparisons stay in your head. You get back what you throw at life. Maybe I should think of throwing ‘equanimity’ out there to get it back. The blue sky in the picture is lovely!
