37‌ ‌Things‌ ‌I‌ ‌am‌ ‌Grateful‌ ‌for‌ #WrappingUp2020

37 Things I am Grateful for 

I have been cultivating an attitude of gratitude for years now, and 2020 has been a year when its meaning took a whole new level. 2020 has been a year like no other in our lives, and it only makes sense to bid adieu to this year while counting our blessings. I have been thinking about it ever since Corrine had suggested this prompt for early December linky, but I could not get around writing it then. But, hey, can you be ever late in counting your blessings? Yes, it’s never too late to be grateful and count our blessings. In case you are wondering why the number 37, well I turned 37 years fabulous and wiser this year. Considering one blessing for each year I have lived till now, listing 37 blessings is not too difficult. Isn’t it? I must add here that adding this number was also Corrine's idea and a fun one at that I say.

Word of the Year 2021 & My Lessons from 2020

Word of the Year 2021 & My Lessons from 2020

What a year 2020 has been? Did anyone imagine how the year would unfold before us when we were sending out the happy new year greetings at the beginning of the year! I didn’t, and I am sure, none of us had ever imagined living through a pandemic and the lockdown restrictions we all have been through this year. Despite everything the world has gone through this year, when I reflected my journey through the year, I realised the year 2020 has not been that bad a year for me personally. There were several inconveniences, but nothing untoward and that I believe is itself a blessing.

Floral Mandala ~ Putting Ideas to Practice ~ Not So Wordless Wednesday

Spending time mindfully on social media needs a lot of discipline. Do you agree?

How many of you have saved ideas about things on Pinterest and never got around to rechecking them?

I tell you there was a time when I would save ideas about all sort of cake recipes, icing, decorations, etc., that my Pinterest feed would be so full of the sugary cakes. Then came different phases when I would look up words, quotes, parenting, kid's activities, and most recently, art ideas. I think of all the ideas I have saved there, only a tiny part of it has been actually put to any use. A visual platform like Pinterest is so full of exciting ideas that it is so easy to get lost, and if you are not disciplined enough, you could end up wasting some productive hours. If you are wondering why I am in this rant mode, well, because I have been there and have eventually learnt to use the platform mindfully.

When You Change The Way You Look at Things, the Things You Look at Change #MondayMusings

When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change

I have been meaning to write a post about living in the pandemic times since long. In fact, this post was lying half-written in my drafts for over a month now. The thing is when you are leading a quarantine life, things seem to move rather slowly (at least so has the case been with me). It has been more than 5 months since our normal lives were replaced by the lockdown/quarantine life. While we are living safe and sound (*conditions apply) within the comforts of our homes, but life is not the same as before. Like most of us, I prepped myself mentally with the mantra - this too shall pass and for the most part, I like to believe that I did fine. There were some days in between when despair and anxiety would take hold and I would step back and just breathe and let things be.
