ECHOES – MARVELLOUS MAY

I have to say this – ” Time literally flies ” I guess it was only some weeks back that I had celebrated New Year but now it’s already June – that’s like half of 2016 has already passed (RIP to all those New Year Resolutions made 😛 😉 ) . All that apart, welcome all you amazing people to my Monthly Favourites post where i pick up the best moments of the previous month and share it with you guys. And yes the month of MAY was indeed MARVELLOUS. 

Blog updates
You know best when you have been busy in your vacations when your number of blog posts looks like this 😀 😀 😀 Post CalendarIt was like the perfect timing in terms of blogging, after the #AtoZChallenge I felt i was out of words for a good long time. I literally didn’t know what to blog about. Also i had to travel home – Andamans , so blogging was totally ruled out. Somehow I still wanted to keep posting on my blog and hence i picked up the   #FMSPHOTOADAYchallenge hosted by Fat Mum Slim . This was my first ever photo challenge and it was amazing. I did manage to complete my challenge (not literally a photo a day was possible) and i was so so happy 😀 ❤ . Click here to view my Instagram account where i had posted all my pictures. It’s a monthly challenge and June photo challenge has already begun which am not taking up, needed a break from photo challenges 😛 (Excuses you see 😉 )

Home and Vacation
I was home for almost two weeks and it was some personal emergency. No matter what the situation staying at home is always peaceful.

Nothing can beat the feeling of peace and satisfaction that you get when you are home amongst your loved ones. And probably after a good long time i was home for such a long period of stay. 

My vacation was extended post that since all my relatives were here with me in Bangalore. 10 days of fun and enjoyment , showing them places, going to my fav water theme park – Wonderla, spending a day out at Mango Mist resorts, going clubbing with them, dancing my heart out with  my brother ❤ ❤ That was the highlight of the whole vacation for me etc. Since i have been staying alone from a long time having so many people around me was a whole new experience. WhatsApp-Image-20160612 (3)

Finally meeting Darshith – from Smiles here and Smile there 😀
Yes that happened! I finally got to meet Darcie (as we all call him) . Though it was a short meeting it was an awesome feeling to finally get to meet people with whom you have been friends through blogging.

So yeah, my Month of May was a lot of travel and made me be on my toes all the time 😀 And now am back to blogging and getting used to my regular life. #VacationHangovers are the worst 😛 😛 😛

How was your May month?? It has started raining here in Bangalore and the weather has become AMAZINGLY AWESOME !!! It’s almost two weeks since June started and am late in my monthly favourites post but i guess that’s okay. Your blog is your world after all you can paint it with your words as and when you want..correct ?!! 😀 Hope June is as amazing as this year has been.

Yeah go ahead and take a vacation if you haven’t!!! ❤ ❤ ❤

Loads of love !!!

 

#AtoZChallenge DAY26: Z for ZEST – I survived!!!

Day: #26 || Alphabet : Z || Theme: Emotions || Word: Zest

Z

It all comes to an end where it all had begun. Choosing a theme like #Emotions as part of the #AtoZChallenge and then coming up with 26 alphabets was not that easy as I had thought it would be in the beginning; well about my reflections on the challenge for a later date.

My first post and emotion that I choose was #Anticipation  the anticipation towards taking up the challenge, the anticipation towards doing anything for the first time or something has been exciting you for good long time and keeping the anticipation continuing am here talking about another emotion ZEST.

 ~~ The Zest Zeal and Zen for LIFE ~~

The life we live is a roller coaster ride, we would never know what the next turn is left or right, whether we are gonna go up or we are going down all we can do is hold on to our seat belt and enjoy the ride some turns would scare the shit out of us and some would be exciting and awesome.

Similarly, hold on to your principles and values of life taught by your parents, your education and the experiences you have lived so far that makes you YOU and enjoy the life’s roller coaster ride. Embrace everyday as if it’s new, have the eagerness to look forward to the day. The amazing things you can do, things you couldn’t complete or achieve last night could be just close enough the next day when you wake up.

Thank the Lord, whomever you pray to or not, thank to that one whom you believe for giving you another chance to life to fulfill all that you have dreamed and worked hard for. Count all your blessings that you have from the roof above your head to save you to the floor you have where you can sleep every night. Love the walls that surround you and protect you to every single thing in your life. Have love for all those who come within this world of yours, everyone who has stood by you through thick and thin and for those who left you only to make you even more stronger.

Never stop learning, always have the excitement to learn something new. Always tell yourself –when was the last time you did something for the first time. Travel –  at least to one new place every year, grow rich in your thoughts and memories you make. Have the appetite and hunger to learn more and more – What hunger is in relation to food, Zest is in relation to life.

And with this I complete my first ever daily blogging challenge in my first year into blogging  – the ultimate #AtoZChallenge . I thank everyone who has visited my blog and showered me with so much love and affection which has only motivated me more and more to pen down my thoughts about emotions and feelings that make us human being ALIVE. Am glad to have made some new friends and come across some great themes and have learnt so much during this challenge. Congratulations to everyone who took up the challenge and survived and also for those who couldn’t make it there is always a next time. Do come back next time! ❤ ❤ ❤

For every non blogger this must be another random post by a blogger but we as bloggers know the kind of effort we put in before we publish every single post. The homework we do in terms of content, images, ideas, the time especially from our otherwise routine life to read the works of others and appreciate them. All for the love of Blogging and for the love of Words

Soon to come up with the Reflections post – about my challenges, the guest blogs and the new friends I made. Already looking forward to the month of May as I would be taking up my first one month photo challenge on my instagram. All those who are interested can follow the below link.
