#AtoZChallenge DAY23: W for WONDER

Day: #23 || Alphabet : W || Theme: Emotions || Word: Wonder


Woohooo.. my stitches are removed and my toothache is all gone ..like wooosh 😀 Having been quiet I mean literally quiet for the past one week was like punishment to me (relief for people around) but guess I enjoyed this phase of being silent..like not talking much just relaxing doing stuff that doesn’t involve much talking for example – listening to people :P, reading,watching movies, observing people and things around me.

Ohhh that reminded me my balcony has become nest to one of the pigeons; actually two they are a couple. The female pigeon has laid two eggs and is hatching them while the male pigeon brings her food and sometimes straws etc to make the nest more cozy. Initially I thought of chasing them off since their nest is right under my flower pots which makes it difficult for me to water the plants. Whenever I water the flowers, the area becomes wet and the nest which is very close to the pot and on the balcony floor also becomes wet 😦  I now water the plants when the mother pigeon flies away for sometime leaving the eggs. I make sure no water is spilt on the floor. That’s my morning schedule this summer I take like 15 mins to water four flower pots. 😀 😀

I am moving away from the topic(happiness of finally being able to talk 😉 ). The last four alphabets in the #AtoZChallenge is the most difficult ones even more when you are following a particular theme. Since I have chosen #Emotions finding words for these alphabets was little tough(not W but the remaining three to follow) And since I have been observing and thinking about the different things around the emotion what I have chosen for”W” I feel is absolutely perfect and that is W for WONDER.

~~ I wonder looking at the sky ~~

Have you found yourself suddenly lost in thoughts (daydreaming is the ugly side of wondering:P) while you are sitting at your office desk in front of your computer, sometimes when you are travelling and you keep looking out of the window dreaming so many thoughts and ideas, even when sometimes you are in the middle of a conversation you just
get lost and start wondering (may be of the movie you have planned to watch at night, or the football match of your fav team, or even about your dream vacation)?? Have you??! 🙂

Well there is one such thing that I always look at and keep wondering of how beautiful our life is . Nature always relates to our life if we sit and wonder about it (Since I have started doodling and zentangling I kind of observe even more around me the patterns naturally formed). What I am talking specifically is – I wonder looking at the SKY 😀 😀 😀 I find our lives and the sky has a lot of resemblance and the sky teaches us a lot things

The sky is like our life. No matter its the sun which shines bright in the morning or the moon which brightens up at night with millions of stars both complementing each other similarly our life complements both the happy and the sad times making it complete. Unless and until there is sadness we wont value happiness and vice versa. After all it’s only in the darkest nights the stars shine the brightest 😀

The sky teaches us that there are different chapters of life, some bright happy ones, some dull and dark, some like a silver lining giving us hope for future, some with sudden surprises like the rainbows. Some scary moments like the thunder but which necessarily don’t lead to rains but just a sudden jolt to awaken us from our mundane life.

It also tells us just like there are different shades to the sky, similarly our life is comprised of people we meet on a daily basis who are of different personalities. Some we accommodate in our lives while some just pass away like the meteors only to trouble us while some come and leave us like the shooting stars making a significant impact in our life.

Everything in our lives we can relate to the sky that’s my personal opinion. The sky changes every second letting us know that CHANGE IS INEVITABLE and the only thing which is constant in life.

Below are the pictures of the different shades of the sky taken by my dear friend ManasCheck out more of his photography in his Instagram account, click here ⇒

The purple shade to the sky - my fav pic of the lot
The purple shade to the sky – my fav pic of the lot
The sky that is always over us as we travel
When the moon comes up as the sun goes down
The heavy clouds which add beauty to the sky. The ever-changing clouds
A rainbow – right from the promise God made to Noah till today its the most amazing phenomenons of nature

When the birds fly back to the shelters after a good day out. home is where the heart is

So what are the ordinary things that you wonder about so deeply? Do you have another perspective to the emotion Wonder ? Would love to hear from you  😀 

Just three more days to go for the challenge to end 🙂 and with three most difficult alphabets (not for everyone am sure) All the best!!! Happy blogging ❤ WORDPRESS (from W) is another thing that i would like to mention here. My blogging journey has been amazing and am loving my time here knowing so many beautiful people all over the world ❤ ❤ ❤ shout out to many blog friends (in detail some other day about them)

My first Award Nomination!!! Yipee!!!

I will have to thank my new blog friend Grace from 20dayworld once again, this time for nominating me for my first Award Nomination. Thanks Grace once again… Can’t thank you enough for finding me in this big world of bloggers and introducing me to so many cool writing challenges….luv luv luv!!! 🙂 


And like all Challenges, this too has its own set of Rulesssssss!! ehh!! yes Rules! So bare with it. Its up to you to accept it and continue appreciating new bloggers or just acknowledge the one who has nominated you and just keep up with your blogging. 


Grace wanted me to answer the below questions so here it goes 🙂 (disclaimer – i have tried to be as honest as possible 😉 )

Why did you start blogging??  I always wanted to share my experiences, thoughts, things i learn with people around and more than anything i apart from dancing i chose writing to express myself. Therefore I started to blog it so that even when i leave this world my experiences of life are there for others to know and to touch their lives in anyway.

Books or Television?? Can’t choose 😦 About Books – I am not an avid reader , but i do have my preferences and always open to suggestions. I make sure i read them. About Television – i watch lot of random stuff anything apart from melodramatic soap operas i think they are a great source of information along with entertainment.

Idea of a dream date??  In the last few years i have realized there is nothing like a “dream date”. Most of the dates are the first time meetup which you prefer over a coffee or a drink. The second date with the same person (if at all) would lead you to dinner/lunch or a movie. Only a series of such dates might lead you to your dream date  with the person you fall in love with and then my friend, the definition of “dream date” for me would be anything from having street food to a perfect dinner spread near a classy beach restaurant, from dirty dancing to backpacking ,walking in the rain, to just be two couch potatoes.

You finding love or love finding you? Have been looking out for love, finding it , cherishing it and then finally losing it. This time – Love is gonna find me!!! Fingers crossed!!!

Favorite Music band/singer?? Too many beautiful musicians/singers/composers are out there, i love and enjoy all genres of music – they keep changing with my mood. 😛

Best year of your life yet?? Each year has taught me a life experience and they were absolutely awakening, many more to come 🙂

Fancy dinners or take out?? Home cooked food any day any time, along with few fancy dinners once a while.

One thing you always carry with you, excluding electronics?? Coffee beans…weird but i love the fragrance when it gets locked in my clutch.

Where is your Happy Place?? My balcony and the view from it refreshing

One of your unique talents??? Nothing unique that i do, but am good at many things. Jack of all trades i would say

Finally, Who’s the Hero in your life?? My hero is my MOM, though she is not with me anymore but i have learnt everything from her, to be strong, independent,caring and to be a good human being. If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane I would walk right up to Heaven and bring you back again mummy.
