The month of August saw me featured as an author on two blogs. It was like a dream come true for me. Though still an amateur, I find pride and pleasure in now introducing myself as an Author to the new people I meet.
Post AtoZ Challenge , the ebook launch, the mandatory book reviews etc. August found me a little tired and in need of a detox break. All through June and July I was over whelmed by the various blogging campaigns. So August’18 saw the least number of blog posts and least participation in various bloggers groups. Thankfully I have come out refreshed and ready to take on the DADDY of all challenges in September’18 i.e. The #MyFriendAlexa challenge. For a change I am not going prompt on this channel and have restricted myself to the premises of two themes – Karmic Fitness and Book Reviews. Read more about the themes here.
The onset of this month, also brought about some concerns over my mother’s health. She has been diagnosed with a chronic lung disorder. I decided to travel alone to meet her. It was a difficult decision for me, as I had never travelled alone in the last 5 years, since my first one was born. But I had to take this trip for my mom. And travel I did for five days to be with her and understand the nature of her ailment. By God’s grace things are moving upwards on her health front.
While I was on a lone trip to my native city, I decided to make the best possible use of the little time I had. I met a friend after 10 years. While it was a joy to meet him, my heart shattered at the information that he lost his younger sibling to an accident 8 years back. I also met his wife, who was an extremely warm person. It is a blessing when your friends’ spouses also take a liking towards you. It is a sure short license to a long standing friendship.
Life is really good when you have friends to look forward to at every step. Another bestie of mine, decided to sleepover the last night I was at my parents place. We went out for a long drive, enjoyed a chocolate loaded milk shake at the drive in restaurant at Nik Baker’s and spent a night full of hearty conversations.
Thanks god for such mercies in life. For making life all it’s worth!
I have taken to following a Karmic Fitness Program by Neha Jain of GMCKS Pranic Healing Trust and am making decent progress with it. As an outcome, I feel less stressful and least answerable to anyone. That’s a positive change in my life!
And oh! I must mention here that a big project that has been in the pipeline for almost a year now, is going to take a definitive shape within the next three – four months. Trying not to reveal it here now, but have to express my gratitude.
I see a radical change in the direction my life’s going from here. May the universe conspire to make the journey memorable.
