The Cockroach that Saved My Marriage

Author Name: Sonal Lobo | Format: Paperback | Genre : Biographies & Autobiographies | Other Details

Someone once shared with me their fantasy: the idea of living a life akin to the movies, filled with love, mystery, romance, and occasional moments of horror. They lamented that everyday life seemed mundane, devoid of novelty. It was the same old house, the same old job, weekend outings, and a constant sense of monotony. For a brief period, I found myself nodding in agreement. I allowed their perspective to seep into my thoughts and accepted it as my own. That was until I embarked on the journey of marriage. To me, marriage became a thrilling adventure, transforming the way I perceived the world. I encountered diverse individuals and navigated through a myriad of situations that made me both laugh and cry. Above all, I learned valuable lessons and discovered answers to the "whys" and "buts" that had puzzled me for so long. This book serves as a narrative of the incidents that unfolded in my life post-marriage. It is a beautiful memoir of the lesson’s life imparted to me before I tied the knot and the truths I unearthed as I expanded my horizons. It would not be an overstatement to declare that life is a tapestry of adventures, happiness, and fun, all contingent on how we choose to embrace it. A rainy day might prove to be an arduous commute for one trapped in traffic, yet it could be a blessing for a farmer in need of irrigation. A bone in your meal can sometimes be an annoyance, but to a stray dog, it could be a delectable feast. Here, I am, eager to share with you the seemingly insignificant moments in my life that imparted invaluable lessons and shaped me into a better version of myself. Join me as I guide you down memory lane, where you will encounter moments that are humorous, heartwarming, poignant, and undoubtedly enlightening
