Thank you!

1,000 Followers! Thank you!

Well, I will be celebrating 2 years anniversary of this blog in a month for now. But, in this span of almost 2 years, I have been having lots and lots of break ups and link ups with my blog every now and then.

(Because, whenever I would try and spend a lot of time on this blog of mine. I would end up having a break up with it within no time for some or the other practical difficulties/situations)

But, you guys have never failed to surprise me by backing me every-time I decided to turn back and link up with my blog. You guys were always there for me and my blog.

Ever supportive and ever encouraging to keep me doing what made me happy and helping me being in never ending relation with my blog till this very date.

Thank you all! Thank you so much for your reads, likes, comments and re-blogs. I have always loved to hear from you all.

You guys must have seen me replying back to most of your comments on my blog posts as “Thank you so much for stopping by and it means a lot to me”. Well, every time I said this, trust me. I really meant it. I really did and will always do.

I would just like to reminisce my memory down the lane, to the time when I just begun to blog. I had no clue if there would be anyone at-least who will stop by and read what I write for even once.

But, today here I am. Happier than ever before.

From all those first few likes, comments, follows.. to all the ones which I receive now.. I can’t thank you all enough for making me believe that there is really someone out there who is willing to read my blog and posts from the day I started till now.Β 

Thank you! Thanks a ton!

As I always say and close my posts!
Happy Reading! πŸ™‚

Late post on Thanksgiving!

This morning, a day after Thanksgiving.

I would first like to thank all of you guys who make some effort to stop by my blog every single time and go through all the articles I write and show some love in form of likes, comments, shares and all.

(I know, I am way too late to post anything on thanksgiving.Β But still, I could not wait a year-long again until next time for another thanksgiving day to come to thank you guys)

Thank you.. so very much for all of it. It really is overwhelming to know that this blog of mine has made it to 670+ followers and 8500+ views till date.

Honestly, If I look back to the day I first wrote my blog post in the month of October last year. I had no clue it would even come this far. I had no clue if anyone would even read what I write on my blog.

But, the response I received in the month of Feb 2018 was really overwhelming. It was 3100+ views in a single month which is highest I have received in a month till date.

Feb

After which, I wrote for another month and then..

Lost it.Β Was hit with such a road block as a writer that it took almost 7 months for me to get back onto my blog and start writing all over again.

To my surprise. I was truly overwhelmed by the response I received from you all. For welcoming me with your cheerful and uplifting comments on my posts. Which in turn helped me to stay up and motivated to write more and more.

Well, for this amazing love and support that you all have showered on me to be back on track ❀ ❀

Thank you so much. It really means a lot to me. Happy Belated Thanksgiving ❀

Happy Reading until next time! πŸ™‚

 

Liebstar Award – #2

Hey guys, it’s totally an honor to receive this award for the 2nd time. Well, it’s almost been more than 2 weeks having been nominated for this award by this awesome blogger friend of mine Avni. Thank you so much for nominating me for this award and I honestly apologize for delay in responding to this as I was damn caught up and stuck in my work.

Avni has already made her presence felt across many fellow bloggers already because of her humble and kind nature. You guys should definitely check out her blog 11avni11 she’s a sweet little 15-year-old girl who honestly writes all that pops up to her mind and intends to make her readers feel good & satisfied about what she writes.

Liebster Award

It’s an award in which bloggers nominate other bloggers for showing respect to their works and their dedication. It’s an appreciation and recognition for all the fellow bloggers out there in the blogosphere.

Let’s get back and answer the questions asked By Avni!

1. Day Or Night? – It’s a little difficult to answer this question for me to be honest with this. Day – Gives me an opportunity to start a fresh and keep hoping. Night – Gives me an opportunity to spend some lone time & find peace within myself.

2. Coffee Or Ice cream? – Coffee for sure. Because, In one word – I just love it.

3. Winters Or Summer? – Winters it is. Simply because I love winter season as all the activities related to Christmas begins and there will be Carols, Christmas Sweets, Celebrations everywhere, Cake and so on.. πŸ˜€

4. High School Or University? – Yet again, it’s really difficult for me in some situations to choose between two. Like in the case of Day & Night and now this. Let me reason out why.. High School – Nostalgic! days which remains in one’s memories for the rest of our lives. University – Teenage time where in you undergo all sort of emotional battles and you’re in phase of transition from amateur teenager to a mature young adult. These two-phase being one of the most memorable days of my life. I really can’t opt between one and thus explained both of it.. πŸ˜‰

5. Dancing Or Singing? – Singing for sure. Being able to play guitar and sing along.. Dancing has never been my cup of tea.

6. Reading Or Writing? – Both again.. (I’m so sorry breaking your rule of choosing just one πŸ˜› ) Reading – It makes me feel good basically when I get along and connect with the other person has penned down. Writing – It lets me ease out my emotions in times of joy, in times of stress and so on.. πŸ˜‰

7. Children Or Parents? – OMG! Avni.. this question is surely like “Which one do you like the most? Your Left Eye or Right Eye?” πŸ˜› (Of-course, to a married man though). I being single, I have all the liberty to choose Parents as of now as I don’t have any children yet.. πŸ˜›

On a serious note. Children and Parents when they get older and older as we grow up.. They both are just one and the same. Their isn’t much difference between them if we look at them right? One request to all those who are reading this note.. please please take care of your parents when they start getting old in the same way as they managed to take care of you when you were a kid. We know it too right? we had no clue of what to we wanted at that moment but they still managed to understand it and provide us with it just to keep us happy and satisfied. If at all we attempt to just to do a little bit of what they did for us. Then, no doubt they will have their best of time in their old age. πŸ™‚

8. Street Art Or Paintings by Professionals (eg. Mona lisa, starry night)? – Street Art – No specific reason to it. Just like them.

9. Instagram Or Facebook? – Instagram – Because it is filled with only pictures that talk to me much closely and I connect with it well than I do with Facebook these days.

10. Hill stations Or Beaches? – Beaches for sure. I love the incomparable peace we get by seeing those tides running towards us and leaving us behind with a subtle touch. Gushing sound of tides, morning sunrise and evening sunset makes me feel happy within. πŸ™‚

11. What do you like the most about India? (Your views about India). – India being my country! I love it the most. Their isn’t just one thing that I love the most about India. There are many things of course. Being such a diversified country with huge masses living together and talking in various languages but still are together living in one piece of land and that is India to me. Diversified with different cultures but united with one proud though that we are Indians! and this I love the most.

In the end. Thank you so much again Avni for giving me this opportunity to answer these amazing questions. I really enjoyed it. πŸ™‚

Gratitude.

It’s hard to believe. How days pass by and memories accumulate. It is already a year past day. It still feels so fresh. All the gush I was going through and trying hard to introduce and welcome a new member to our family.

After a toil of almost many months. Finally, the day had come. It was 27th January 2017.

Today, I would like to pin this memory on my blog with this article. As a sense of gratitude and satisfaction.

The day which had brought a thousand smiles to my entire family. Specially, the glimpse of content and happiness my mom and sis had on their face was immense.

Little did anyone knew. It would happen so soon. But, there it was.

“Walk of Faith” it was. My brand new Car.

I know some might feel whats a big deal in buying a car these days. It’s all so simple and straight forward. Why do you need to brag so much about it.

But, for many out there it is still a big milestone. Buying a Car on your own. It is a sense of accomplishment.

It was onlyΒ possible because of unshaken faith and belief we had in Lord almighty. If it was not for his blessings and mercy on me and my family all the hard work and efforts I put in would be of no use.

Moral: It takes a lot of time to do everything on your own. But, if you cast your burden on him and let him know your wishes and dreams. He will take care of everything that comes and accomplishes it for you even before you could think of doing it.

 

Good Bye 2017 & Welcome 2018.

Well, It’s finally the time to bid ‘Good Bye’ to the most wonderful year of all time to me. 2017 it is. Love you 2017. Thank you for all the good things you have done to me this year.

I am thankful to god almighty for making this year so special to me. If it was not of him. This year wouldn’t have been so special to me. I got everything that I had prayed for.

Let’s sum up all that I have learnt and got this year. In short, It was never easy. After my father expired 2 years back. It was all shattered. We were all fogged with the cloud of what next? How will we ever do anything that is in store for us in future? Will it be any easy for us to cope up with all our family needs appropriately?

Cloud of all these questions and many more were all gushing through my mind. But, at the same time. The faith I had in my Lord Jesus Christ. Built me up. Held me strong. I clung on to him with all my faith and guess what? He never let me down.

He helped me to gear up for all the things to be done now and in future. One thing I learnt and grew much stronger this year is. Have faith in Lord and keep your steps you will never stumble nor fall. This is so true. Out of all the things happened to me this year. Would like to mention about one most wonderful thing that happened. 

To give an example of how miraculously he will help us. I always knew I want to buy a car. But, how will I? No idea on it. Then, what do you think I did? First thing I did. I spoke with Lord almighty in prayer.

I told him “I badly want it and the reason for it you clearly know”.

And, the outcome of it. This year it was. 27th Jan 2017 to be precise. I had my brand new car in front of my home.

Today, I want to thank god for all things he has done to me in my life this year and all the days of my life until now.

Hopeful that the coming year 2018 will bring in much Joy and Blessings to me, my family and my friends.

Before I end my note of biding Good Bye to 2017 would like to say one last thing. You may say that you haven’t experienced any blessings in your life. But, Be sure on one thing. Be faithful to god and have hope in him as rightly quoted in one of the verse in Bible.

He is going to bring rivers into your life which is like a dessert – Isaiah 43:19

Surely, He will crown those who believe and trust in him and bring rivers of blessings in your life. Expect great things from God. What is impossible with man, it is possible with God.

Having said all this. I would like to bid Good Bye to the most amazing year 2017 and welcome  2018 with much joy, faith and hope to be more fruitful and year filled with only happiness and blessings.

I wish each and every one of you a very Happy New Year! πŸ™‚

Happy reading! πŸ™‚

I have been nominated for the Liebster Award by Ritika! 

Thank you Ritika. This award means a lot to me. Being given the opportunity to leverage this award. To say something about Ritika and her Blog. She’s a writer who believes in expressing all that she experiences and is motivated from her day-to-day life. Basically, everything that makes up her day. You can find it pinned on her blog in the form of post pretty soon. Be sure of one thing. She is definitely an honest writer.

Alright, 10 questions asked by Ritika to me and the answers for those are as follows. 

  • What are your future plans about writing?

Well, honestly I had always dreamt of writing and having a blog of my own from my college days to be precise. This dream of mine was finally accomplished on 7th Oct 2017. I would never forget that day. Having said this about how I started. Coming to plans, there isn’t any particular plan or such. But, I would definitely continue my writing to keep myself motivated and at the same time help every other reader who reads my posts and is benefited by it.

  • Who is your role model?

Role model. It would be no other person than My Parents. More specifically Mom. She is such a Gem. All that I am today is because of her. If it was not for the scoldings I received from her when I was in 1st standard of my schooling. For having failed in English. Maybe I wouldn’t have been here today writing something in English. It’s because of her. From that very day, I have never failed in any subject or anything for that matter. Having been given all the freedom in whatever I do. Mom and Dad were always supportive. To me in real life. They truly are my role model forever. 

  • What is your definition of love?

Love. This is something that I love the most. I Believe. Love is such a feeling which cannot be described. But can only be felt. Truly, this is that amazing feeling which you get when you are with the person you feel very attached to, with whom your really comfortable. In short, you can be yourself when your with that person (Be it your Parents, Brother, Sister, Friends, Girlfriend, Boyfriend or anyone for that matter). 

  • How do you promote your blogs?

When I got this question of how should I promote my blog. I did honestly approach Reema D’souza my Junior at college but is a Senior when it comes to blogging. She suggested me to keep writing and being active on my blog. This by itself will do most of the work of promoting and she also did a shout-out for me once on her Instagram handle. Along with it. At present. I am focused on writing the posts that makes a difference to the reader. I also post the images and link of the same on Instagram handle. 

  • Which is your best post so far?

My best post so far is Wake up. This post is all about how we make some plans and fail executing it. Because of procrastination. So, how do we really tackle it. To get more insight on the post content. I believe you need to visit it and enjoy reading it πŸ™‚

  • Where do you get most of the content from?

Content I write is all from my personal experience. All that I have gone through in my life and how I have managed coming of it. All the courage and encouragement I got by either reading some motivational articles or seeing some videos when I needed it the most. I make an honest attempt to simplify my experiences and write all of it. Well, On which Topic to write on. I get the prompts from all my loved ones around me πŸ™‚

  • Which stereotype irritates you the most?

Bullying. It is one thing I hate the most. Well, making fun of someone is fine. It’s all cool until the person made fun off is also is also enjoying it and okay with it. The moment it crosses the threshold of fun and exceeds. It gets personal. People will get annoyed. It will destroy their mental peace. So, I personally believe. Fun is okay. But we all need to a little careful so that fun don’t get turned to Bullying. 

  • What are your goals regarding blogging?

In the long run. I would want myself to see as a successful blogger. I have seen many a times people start blogging and over the course of time the blog becomes inactive. First goal is to make sure I write all the posts with honest and good content. So that end of the post, reader should feel it to be worth of his/her time. Second, to win the goodwill of as many fellow bloggers to learn from their feedback and keep growing in this blogging world. 

  • What makes you different from others?

I personally, believe every individual is bound to be different. My friends call me a Passenger Train. πŸ™‚ Mainly, because I like to talk with anyone I come across in very short time. Many say, I connect well with the people I mingle with. Thus, hopeful that my posts will connect with the readers too. So the Connectivity it is. the standout thing in me which makes me a little different from others.
