ECHOES – JOYOUS JULY

July was a beautiful month; Totally awesome for so many reasons. I didn’t realize how these 31 days passed by. Hop along to know how i celebrated this month in my Monthly Favorites section called ECHOES and July for me was a JOYOUS JULY ❤ ❤ ❤

Birthday Month:
What other reasons one wants for a month to be special?! It was my birthday and i beautifully turned 29. Can’t believe its my last year in my 20’s and it was as special as any other birthday bringing more happiness, goals and promises to self. Friends make your birthday so special when you are away from family and they have been a major reason for my birthdays to be so beautiful every year, be it grand or small celebrations it has always been perfect in its own way. So many wishes from all over the world, thanks a ton to all the blogging community and some amazing friends i made through blogging which was special. And a bunch of hugs to my always so special dear friends who pamper me with love and more importantly pamper me with unconditional love. #Happybirthdaytome 🙂 Looking forward to complete all the promises i made to self.

Blog updates:
I am happy i managed to make good number of posts(22) through the #halfmarathon hosted by Blogchatter. In fact i finished two challenges one a list of 10 day prompts which was inspired from a fellow bloggers post followed by 5 more adding to it. I am also gonna post the review for 6 Degrees soon which i am about to get complete again something being encouraged by Blogadda team. It would be my first video post,watch out for more on that. Well one thing which i couldn’t complete was the Word High July hosted by my dear friend Maria and her buddy. I did start it on a good note but lost track of it 😦 Something that am not really proud of my first challenge that i couldn’t complete. I would though try to use those words in my blog as and when possible. Its always good to learn a new language.

New Job:
Yeah so besides my birthday the other major life event was my new job, i mean same job but with a new firm with a better role and package 😛 I now work for an Indian company which am really proud about called the Mindtree. Its been more than two weeks and i feel good about it. Anything new in life is always a mixed emotions there is excitement, there is fear, there is fear of rejection and being accepted. Its all about starting from scratch to make your presence and make your own place in a big team.

I have made a bunch of colleagues with whom i can chit and chat so its good. Work is keeping me on my toes. Only thing not good about this whole thing is the travel to work -24 kms to be exact that is summed up by almost an hour and half an over ride broken down in parts first a cab to the metro then half an hour in metro again half an hour and bus for me to reach the office at 9.15 am in the morning. So my whole schedule has been changed right with the time i sleep and wake-up the time i eat and everything else. But every trouble and pain is worth the peace of mind i get when i wake up each day to head to work that i love.

Cloud raiders: 
Remember last time when i mentioned about this game which i am addicted to Cloud Raiders ? Well the addiction is only getting stronger 😛 That time i was on level 13 and today am currently at 39 with a lot more army and a decent kingdom. Check out the image below. Its a strategic game with lot of thinking and more than that lot of patience needed. Every time i make an upgrade to one of my weapons it takes min 12 hours which i need to wait unless i spend money (literally money) and buy time. Liking the game..oh let me correct..loving the game! 🙂WhatsApp-Image-20160629

This is my first post in the month of August. One of my best friend is in the ICU for over a week now and is on ventilator after a brain hemorrhage. I request you all to pray for him and for a miracle to happen. He is one of the most purest souls i have met in my lifetime. Having known him for more than a decade now its really a tragedy to see him like this. 😦 All he needs is our prayers and for that miracle to happen.  #prayforShiva

 Hope your July month was fantastic, its almost half a month in August so late to ask that question was not in the mood really. Lets enjoy each day with our loved ones because life is so uncertain.

#AtoZChallenge Day01: A for ANTICIPATION

Day: #01 || Alphabet : A || Theme: Emotions || Word: Anticipation

A

Yipee!!! Finally the #AtoZChallenge  has begun and I can’t tell you how excited I am . Well what better way to start my Theme – Emotions with a happy and positive one ANTICIPATION  Yes!!!! Didn’t all of us go through this emotion right since the #AtoZ  Signup had began. 

What exactly is the definition of Anticipation ? (definitions from Google)

Anticipation

Gustave Flaubert said “Pleasure is found first in Anticipation, later in memory” I think like we have always heard more than the destination the journey matters i think it truly describes the emotion Anticipation. Reading about it in their site, reading posts of previous challenge survivors i had already begun spinning in my head that no matter what am gonna take this challenge up. And this journey began almost around September last year. I have never waited eagerly for something like this. 

anticipation

I started working around the theme that i would want to write upon. Trust me i had like five different themes and words already drafted all i had to do was make a choice. Being the Sensitive , #AmplifiedEmotional (new term i think i would use for myself) Human being i am i couldn’t stop from finalizing EMOTIONS as my first theme. 🙂 🙂 And here I am with the first post. I don’t know yet whether i would survive it or not, but as long as am gonna travel this journey am excited about it. I don’t want to feel nervous about proving myself to me or to anyone else. I just want to enjoy every moment in this month and i am gonna do it with all my ❤

Anxiety Anticipation

Life is always best enjoyed when you look forward to all the good things that are gonna happen. Problems that have solution should not be worried about much; and ones which don’t have  solutions there is no point in worrying about it.  Anticipation is like looking forward to that beam of light at the end of a dark tunnel. Its like the countdown of time and the entire memory that you make as the clock keeps ticking.

I am anticipating all good things as part of the #AtoZChallenge like – Surviving it, Meeting new bloggers, the knowledge i would gain by reading about so many topics (1700 + bloggers * 26 posts 😀 ) . The satisfaction i would have when i post the 26th blog for alphabet Z. I am gonna do this and give my 100% as i enjoy this journey of April month.

Today is also a special day as its my brother Sanjay’s birthday!!! Here is my fav pic of the two of us and a message to him

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Growing up as a kid wouldn’t have been a happy memory if it was not you by my side to fight and play. Thank you for always showing me the right path, standing up for me in front of mom and dad and sharing my share of scolding and beatings.For making sure am not hurt by anyone or anything, for keeping your calm and being strong in front of me the entire time when mom passed away so that i don’t cry..for deciding to move back home so that i can continue my career here in Bangalore and many other moments. I have memories with you that would always make me want to be born as your little sister again and again ❤ ❤ ❤
You have been my strength all this while and shall forever be. I know you would do anything in this world to make me happy. I love you. Hope you have the best birthday brother Be the coolest Sanjay that everyone knows you for. To the most handsome man i have known, the one with most warmest heart and the strongest man who always stands up for his loved ones and beyond. I love you and i miss you tons. Loads of hugs and kisses to the most charming brother one can have.
birthday
