Prompts for the Promptless – Ep. 5 – Meraki

Prompts for the Promptless – Ep. 5 – Meraki
Meraki [may-rah-kee] This is a word that modern Greeks often use to describe doing something with soul, creativity, or love — when you put “something of yourself” into what you’re doing, whatever it may be.

I think whatever I do , I do with Meraki or I don’t do it. Be it cooking, sketching, writing , photography or any house hold work. I just didn’t know the exact word to describe it. Thanks to Rarasaur I have learnt a new word for it.

She has asked to write  List 5 things you always do with meraki, here are they-

1- I always say sorry and thank you with Meraki.

2- I love my family, friends and every one with Meraki and when I hate dishonesty, violence, lies etc ? yes,  that too with Meraki

3- I write my blog with Meraki.

4- I like, appreciate and comment on others post  sincerely, with Meraki.

5- I love life and have lived with Meraki and I’ll embrace death with Meraki. ( Wow sounds very romantic no?)

 

Any task we do not do with meraki lacks something, seems incomplete and lefts a taste of dissatisfaction in us. Whereas whatever you do with

soul, creativity, or love, will fulfill you with joy and satisfaction.

 

Now about sharing a picture that represents doing something with meraki, I can’t leave this oppertunity to showcase some of   of my drawings and  photography.

About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing the thoughts, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  6. Beautiful pictures. I am thinking I would watch carefully that tiger on the right. He is not drinking, but is watching very intently.
