The unmatched beauty of a calm and quiet life

We live in a world where success is measured through the busy noise of life. A good job, costly car and flat etc are the benchmarks for a successful life.

During holidays, that comes once in a blue moon, I followed the same humdrum routine. It took me a few years to realize that my workload was increasing and my emotional and physical health was decreasing. I resigned my job in 2016 and didn’t apply for another job.
