This time last year

This time last year, I was desperately looking for a way to release the pain my heart was filled with. Nursing an infant and a fractured hand were making it impossible for me to write in my diary. I didn’t want to miss on recording my emotions yet again, that’s when I decided on creating this blog.

I have always been fond of scribbling. Be it incoherent thoughts or precious memories, I like to record them. Earlier I used to write a diary and these days it is this blog. After having missed on recording my pregnancy journal (cause of health issues) I was determined to make the most of this weblog.

Looking back I feel, starting this blog was one of the best things I did in the last year. Not only my emotions and thoughts started making sense to me, but the never-ending love, support and prayers showered by the readers of this blog I succeeded in reaching the place I am in.

It sounds dramatic when I write that without this blog and the friends I made through it I wouldn’t have reached where I am today. But nevertheless it is true.When you are able to re-visit your thoughts and see them clearly in a different setting and point of time you actually can find many unseen facts and even solutions to your problems. I have actually experienced this phenomenon and I thank this blog for making it possible by helping me learn, change, unwind and grow in countless ways.

I have still many things to record but words have begun to fail me. There was a stage when I used to believe that when words begin to fail you, you have said and written enough, but I now think otherwise. I have to conquer this situation before my failing memory robs me off those precious memories. I do try to make notes from time to time, but very few of those notes reach a completed state. As a result I have an almost equal score of published posts and incomplete drafts.

With hope of understanding myself, my life and the people in it better through my writings, here’s celebrating my blog’s first anniversary and hoping for many more decades ofΒ successfulΒ publishing.

  2. Congratulations ME to you and your blog for completing one year!!! πŸ™‚

    I can understand when you say that reading this makes you feel see yourself in different light as I do the same. In my worst phases I just open my blog and start reading from the bottom to top. Just a few posts and I am already smiling thinking of where I had been, where I am right now and how far it has brought me.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed being on this journey so far with you and am looking forward to some more fun together with some wonderful posts….my all time fav being letters to Pari ❀

  4. Congratulations!! πŸ™‚

    I don’t know if I have told you, but I also started my blog during one of the most difficult phases of my life… and I’m glad I did. It was not only such a soothing experience for my soul, but I also started making friends, widening my horizons and learning about so many new things. Over time you realize that the blog becomes your friend, an integral part of you…that stores your memories and experiences of life….that one day you would sit back and love to read and remember …. πŸ™‚

    Keep writing. And I m sure Pari would one day love to mull over what her mother’s life was like when she was just born…

    Thank you for chronicling your experiences and memories. I love visiting your space, reading your reflections and then mulling over them. I love love reading those little lines Pari. My complaint is you don’t write enough on Pari. Sorry, I don’t mean to be rude. But I really want to know every little thing – like even what was her latest tantrum πŸ˜›
    Wishing you many many many many more years of inspiring and content moments in life – after all, every post is a story! πŸ™‚
