I’m back after a break and it feels so good! How have you all been during this time?
First and foremost, a big THANK YOU to my lovely friend, Natasha for hosting the #WordlessWednesday blog hop over the past two weeks and for managing it single-handedly with her characteristic warmth and graciousness! I must also thank all you amazing people from the blogosphere for joining us, week after week, and for making this linky party so much fun and so wonderful to participate in! Deeply appreciate your love and presence! <3
Now, a brief recap: So, three weeks back, I was drowning in overwhelm, and the only thing I wanted to do then was to disengage myself from social media and blogging. I reckoned that my soul was yearning for a break and perhaps it was all that I needed—a week or two at an unhurried pace to re-focus and re-align my priorities. I must tell you it was one of the best decisions I made! That some of my good friends backed my decision only strengthened my resolve. The rest was easy!
All this while, the weather has been terrible, to say the least, and the perpetual grey has been seeping into my spirit, reinforcing the sense of doom and gloom, as if things weren’t bad enough already. So, after a fortnight of monochrome skies (read grey!) we finally had a big downpour last night, that went on till really late into the night and then this morning, I opened my eyes to gorgeous deep blue skies—the kind we’ve not seen here in a very long time. Around mid-morning, I paused for a breather, to soak in some quiet and claim my stillness amidst all the noise that comes with busy weekday mornings. I have no words to tell you how therapeutic it was!
I share these pictures (clicked from our seventh-floor balcony), from this morning to dedicate these quiet moments of mindfulness and gratitude for the things going right in life, and all those blessings, big and small, that get us moving even when so much of our lives don’t quite go as per plan. Grateful, that hope never dies and that we carry on, despite the odds! I do hope we can always have it in us to see the bigger picture (read ‘our purpose’ in life!) and not get rattled by the everyday failures (the countless ‘losses’ we all endure) I sincerely hope that even in the darkest of moments, we are always guided by the Light within! 🙏
On that note, wishing everyone a beautiful, productive and a creatively inspiring week ahead.
Happy #WordlessWednesday and a great rest of the week to one and all. 💖
