My first award ❤

Hey there!

I’m immensely happy to tell you that I’ve been nominated for the Unique Blogger Award by the lovely Actressinreality! You can check out her blog by clicking on the name.

Thank you so so much! It’s only been a month since I started blogging and I used to see all these people I follow getting awards and I used to wonder when I’ll get one. And here is it is

Unique Blogger Award

I think this is such a lovely idea, and always inspires us to be even better. It’s amazing to know that when someone else won this award, they thought of me as worthy to nominate me further.

Here’s how we go about this.

  • If you are nominated, you’ve been awarded the Unique Blogger Award.
  •  Thank the person who nominated you. Link them into your “Unique Blogger Award” response!
  • Answer the 3 questions asked by the person who nominated you.
  • Nominate 8-13 people for the same award.
  • Ask the people you nominate 3 questions.

 

MY ANSWERS

  1. What is the quote that resonates with you the most? – ” But how can you expect others to love you if you don’t love yourself?”
  2. Has blogging benefitted your life? If so, in what way? – I’m pretty new to the whole concept of blogging and I yet have to completely understand it fully before I can make any material benefits out of it. Material benefits being my ultimate goal of creating a safe community for free creative expression like I’ve mentioned quite a few times before. Other than that, blogging has definitely motivated me to up my writing game and have a sense of responsibility.
  3. Do you believe in soul mates? – I really don’t know when/where I heard this story, that initially we were created in pairs, but for some reason, we were separated from our significant other and the purpose of life is to find our other half and thus, our soulmate, Now while I don’t believe that this is our sole purpose, this lends some romanticism to the whole idea and makes it pretty interesting.

 

 

I further nominate:

The Shining Gem

Positive Guider

Phoenix with a pen

Stage 1- The onslaught
It’s like chains holding you down; you’re crying and screaming and the chains are clanking in their rusted glory. The smoke is rising up from the corners of the room.
Before you know it-you’re drowning. Left gasping for air. You try to hold on to the rims, but it the pit goes on way too deep. Days like these are particularly hard.
Stage 2- The hit
You’re lost, mentally. Walking down those lanes you still visit every now and then, hoping to change stuff up. It’s always amusing to imagine how you’d do things differently if you had another chance. You remember everything so well- the missed opportunities, the lies, and the heartbreaks. But all of these are overpowered by the scent of happiness and contentment that fills you up.
The ties, emotional and physical, to the people and places you left behind were cut so abruptly. You’re still reeling.
For most part you walk around blankly, keeping so busy so you don’t have a moment. Surround yourself with so much noise you can’t hear the sound of the world crashing around you.
Stage 3- The analysis
Nothing is the same. you’re yet to realize that.
Just keep moving forward. moving forward. moving forward. Do you dare look back?
The past is not where you belong.
You’ve got so much to do, new memories to make, new people to meet.
Stage 4- The Predestination
But, What do you do when you don’t want to let go? The memory is all you’re left with.
It’s a bittersweet feeling, you know you aren’t supposed to dwell in the past, but you’re willing to take the risk and bear the hurt.
The past is dangerous. It stops you from growing. You wonder how all the people have moved on, while you’re still stuck.
How much time, till the memory brings a smile on your lips? How much time till it doesn’t reduce you to tears?
Stage 6- Until next time
The smoke is settling and you can see clearer now. The reality slaps you hard.
Pulling yourself out
Drenched in memories
Breathing again
It’s just these fucking chains that refuse to break.

Daily Inspiration

We have all heard amazing words from people who tell us to work till we achieve our goals. We hear people telling success stories of how they worked day in and out. 

Don’t get caught up in this web of mindlessly working. Listen to your body. If you have a headache,  you’ve probably had enough. If you’re  dozing off, you’re probably sleep deprived (you could also be bored. In which case, keep working ).

Don’t forget to take a break. And don’t feel guilty for that. 

Shut yourself down for maintainence.

Daily Inspiration

Every day, wake up with a goal

You’re going to make yourself better. You’re working on yourself.

Not for anyone else. It takes a while, but ‘you are your own biggest competition’ is not just a quote. Everyday  strive to be better than you were yesterday.

Do it for yourself.

Stop lying to yourself. No, you can’t get this done tomorrow. Push yourself.

You’re doing it for yourself.

Daily inspiration 

If you’re reading this on your phone/laptop/desktop, you’re more privileged than half the population on this planet. You’re likely to have a roof on your head and food to eat and eyes to read and air to breathe and you don’t have to worry about bombs dropping on you at any given point. 

Take a moment to focus. On all the wonderful things in life. Everything. You’ll be taken aback at the sheer list of things you have. 

If you’re really serious about this, you could always make a gratitude journal and write stuff every day in it. 

My point is- you’re a lucky human being. And most of the time, we take these things for granted and forget to be thankful for all that we have ❤
