Drafts : Few Things Left Unsaid

My friend Rob of The V-Pub has invited me to a five day challenge. The challenge is – “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”. Rob’s blogs are so humorous and insightful, that they never fail to bring a smile on my face. Please visit his blog any time you feel too stressed out about life 🙂 Today, is my first day of the challenge.

My first write up is about : “Things Left Unsaid”. A lot of times, as we grow up, we deliberately move away from expressing how we feel. We STOP expressing. We stop telling our loved ones how much we love them, we stop saying thank you when we feel grateful, we stop saying sorry just because our ego comes in between. These are the things growing up teaches you.

But today, as you read this, I want you to go back in time when you were a carefree child and never thought twice before expressing how you felt. By no means, I intend to preach being insensitive and inconsiderate towards how others feel and be brutal, on the other hand I want you to spread love, smiles, joy & kindness all around. And guess what, they are free !! It only takes a few loving words and a smile on your face. ….Because at the end of the day, you should not be left feeling empty & shallow regretting for things you “wish” you did !!

Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable

I regret not the things I’ve done, but those I did not do.

Sonia’s Diary, June 17 2015: (Protagonist from my Short Story Blog : “Always”)

Today I was running a search on my email id. There was a particular email address whose communication I wanted to find. As I ran through the search, I was surprised to find so many messages in my “Drafts” folder. I don’t know what occurred to me. All of a sudden. That I ran this email search. That I read every single email all over again in my drafts. That I read every mail chain we exchanged. That I re read some of the messages, I so much wanted to send to “that” email id, and ended up sending to myself. What was wrong with me ?

I am An Encouraging Thunder….

et

I got the Encouraging Thunder award from my sister from another nation-Mon (Thanks so much Mon! You have made my WP journey so memorable 🙂 )

Purpose in blogging:

  • To decode happiness and spread smiles
  • To share vulnerable sides of myself so others can relate
  • To express in words what I sometimes fail to say in person
  • To connect with people, make friends without borders and learn from them
  • To inspire and be inspired
  • To have a collection of my write ups
  • To write, write and write… It is one thing I truly love and gives me inner joy and peace
  • To reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad !! I love to read. It gives me whole new perspectives and ponder on thoughts which are sometimes a life changer
  • To spread love with kind words
  • To make peace with myself through writing
  • To share wisdom I learnt from 23 years on earth.

The Enigma Girl

il_570xN.711590710_ghlt

She was a steep rebel,
A hurricane dressed as the wind,
She could sweep you off your feet..

She was an untamed horse,
Running into the wild,
Without any care..

She was the tides in the sea,
On a full moon night,
Fearless she rose higher each time..

She was the pole star on a cloudy night,
Burning with zest within
Appearing as a tiny dot to the world..

My Favorite Posts from My Top Liker’s

If there would be a contest saying “The happiest days of my life”, I would definitely nominate this day. One of my Friends here in Blogosphere has dedicated a post to my blogs !! She selected top 10 posts from my blog and summarised each of them so beautifully !

Thank you so much for this beautiful and sweet gesture Mon. Lots of love 🙂

Your words have given me so much encouragement, my words defy to express it. I am really humbled.

When I started out my journey here in blogosphere, I was and still am an amateur. My blogs were hardly read ! But when I started making friends here in my journey, things took a U Turn. This is the power of friendship and encouragement. Once again thanks a lot Mon for this pleasant surprise and for being so kind and encouraging ❤

Life of Mon

I have kept in my mind for some time to pick my First Top Liker’s, First 5 Commenters’, Randomly Choosen Follower’s and Randomly Chosen Liker’s (So far) Blog posts I loved dearly 🙂 Pretty soon I am planning to start on doing more kinds of things like this secretly just like I did with this post 😀

Today I will promote an amazing author, the beautiful Himali  ❤

Himali Shah: She writes “I am a Chartered Accountant by profession presently working with a Fortune 500 Company. I am a voracious reader and I love to pen down emotions I witness and experience. I believe in the power of expression and love…..”

She is an amazing writer who believes writing is a genuine and therapeutic way to express herself: ““I decided not to structure my writings around topics I “Want” to write. Rather, I will write what I “Need” to write”…

Overcoming the Writer’s Block

09sep_wup-konkona01

I came across a new word today while discussing something with one of my friend’s, and it was “Writer’s Block”. Since this was something related to a writer, I quickly ran through a Google search. Wikipedia gave the following definition:

“A condition primarily associated with writing, in which an author loses the ability to produce new work or experiences a creative slowdown.”

The moment I read the definition, I knew; it spoke my heart. My inner goodness finally found an appropriate jargon to describe the turmoil in my mind !! 😀 I also thanked the person who helped me come across this word and I thought of ways to cure this “ailment”. I tried hard, very hard actually to write on a couple of topics too, but over the weekend I got so busy (another post soon coming up!!) I could write only bits and fragments.
