Just realized that I’m about to write my 600th post, and come November my little blog turns 5. I am overjoyed and ever so grateful! This place has meant more to me than words can express, a place to write, to read other lovely posts, to get inspired, and most importantly a place that is all mine.
600 posts, I know doesn’t seem like a lot, but any milestone deserves to be celebrated. So to all of you, my lovely followers, thank you! Thank you for staying during my inconsistent days, thank you for the community.
Milestone: 500 Posts
Milestones are always special, and I just hit the 500 post mark on my little nook of the internet, this site (for which I’m eternally grateful), but I only figured I had reached 500 posts (the previous one was the 500th one) after posting it. I guess sometimes you don’t notice something till after the moment has passed. Regardless, it calls for celebration. And that’s precisely what I intend to do.
A huge thank you to everyone who has ever stopped by to read my musings.
Thank you so much!
There was a time in my childhood when I’d just always find myself singing or humming a tune and generally be carefree. And then somehow that phase seemed to abruptly end, I noticed I had become very self conscious about it and would only limit my singing to when I was along or driving by myself. Needless to say I was NOT happy about this.
But today a friend shared a few songs by a new artist called Prateek Kuhad, and his music was so light, happy, and lovely that I found myself singing his songs through the day, whether I was at my desk at work, or getting ready for the day, I found myself singing without a care in the world, and generally ended up having one of the best days I’ve had in recent times.
The power of good music is an astounding thing. So here’s the song that has been on my mind and my lips today.
I keep asking the Universe to give me signs to indicate if I’m on the right path, and when I have the patience, I get them. Some days I ask for dragonflies, some days I ask for rain, some days I ask for yellow cars, and most days I ask for roses, my all time favorite flowers. So today when I least expected it, I got my sign, and a big bunch of roses welcomed me home after a long productive Monday.
Makes me think of one the most profound quotes by Victor Hugo –
“Certain thoughts are prayers. There are moments when, whatever be the attitude of the body, the soul is on its knees.”
Somehow all I can say is – Thank you, Universe!!
Peace & Love
