Year of Firsts that was 2015

As I sit with my laptop, thinking about how 2015 went by, the only thing that comes to me is how glorious the year turned out for me. 2015 was perhaps, the most resplendent year of my life, both in terms of my personal and professional life. It was a year that satiated the dreamer in me. Yes, there were specks of sorrows as well, but then what’s true happiness if there’s no sadness? And I am glad I could overcome all of it and didn’t let my fiery spirit die. There are so many things that I am grateful for, so much that 2015 has given me, of course, I had to jot it down and embrace everything around!

Here’s listing below my learning’s, my gratitude this year-

1. It was a year of so many Firsts! My first post being published on web, first win at Writer’s Ezine, my first post winning at Blogadda along with being published at Women’s Web and attending a conference for the same, celebrating first Teacher’s Day, asked to review a book for the first time, receiving a gift from Secret Santa for the first time, first Tangy Tuesday pick at Blogadda, receiving the first bloggeraward, celebrating Friendships Day first time with Myself, having the first WOW post, being published at Story Mirror. Gosh! It truly was a year of Firsts! Not to mention my story and poems have made to the anthology this year which shall be published soon! And as I write this post, I realize there is a glow of happiness on my face, which I completely devour.

2. I realized as and when you grow, it’s hard to maintain that same level of your friendship alive. It takes lot many efforts for things to remain the same. But friends are the wonderful family one can ever have. They will be there through your thick and thin and I am so glad to have them.

3. When I read my reflections post of January this year, I found out about being so paranoid about my writing, and the ritual to maintain it. Today, I only laugh at it, but somewhere deep down, I am still worried, and yet there exists so much of gratification inside me for completing it religiously.

4. One thing that I am really willing to carry forward next year is the fact it is you and only you who can help yourself more than anyone in the world. There will be people who will try to bring their hands forward, but you can blossom only if you’re willing to. And that power lies inside you. As they say, to get something you’ve never got before, you need to make efforts you’ve never made before! Makes sense?

5. I learnt that if you’re quiet about something, and don’t have the habit of exaggerating too much, you’re going to be taken lightly! Yes. You heard me right! Anything, that you do, you constantly need to remind others what you did, otherwise they forget easy. But then I feel, it’s not always about accentuating what you do; it is more about doing anything that comes straight from heart! I am really confused on this. Any suggestions from you?

6. This year helped me learn a lot about myself, my family, and the dynamics about how things works, and it is all for good.

7. Technology, it does connect with the ones far from you, but takes you far from the ones sitting near you. I realized everything on social media (or may be most of it) is a sham! Nothing is perfect in the world. No one is. Egging upon sharing every iota detail of your life only makes you look desperate. Come out of the virtual world, and embrace the real world around you. I am not saying that it is bad, but getting addicted to it is bad.

8. In life, there is nothing gray for me. It is either black or white. This year I hope to discover the gray area as well. For my own good. It’s important to understand the politics that goes around you and in order to avert yourself from it, you need to move to the gray area and understand it first.

9. Family comes first, no matter what. It was a year of revelation for me. There were a few things where I thought my family would barely understand me, but they were way more ahead in taking action for the problems that circled me.

10.  I can never express the amount of love I have been showered upon this year. Boosting my inner self and having the confidence to take things a step ahead is what this year has taught me.

I’m sharing my #TalesOf2015 with BlogAdda.

How was your 2015? What is that one thing that you wish to take forward for 2016? Share with me and I’ll be more than happy!

Wishing you all a very Happy and Prosperous New Year.

Caution- Danger Zone Ahead

O you look uncanny! You strange blue little thing! Who are you? Are you a sea animal? Fish? Mammal? Some other species may be? I like your skin though. This bright colour looks nice.. and the contrast lemon suits you just perfect. You like sleeping? Me too!  

But what are you doing here? Don’t you know there’s a lot of weird stuff around here! And have you ever heard of Humans, ever? Shh.. Don’t say that loud.. they might hear you and if they will hear you, they might find you, and then they will kill you! They never spare anyone. They never have! They will either capture you and keep you in prison, give you some food to eat. 
You must be thinking that that isn’t too bad, but that is what their trap is all about! They will torment you. Every single day. And will work on you, and do their experiments, drop so many harsh liquids, they will keep you in so many lights and see how you respond to it, till what level is your body able to cope up with the pain they will infuse in you. And if by any chance, they’re not able to do any good of you, they will keep you in a box and decorate their house with the light of your skin, flaunt you to the world, as if they own you and have every right to treat you the way they want!

Do they work?

Do you believe in making New Year Resolutions?

Yes, of course I do! It was for these New Year resolutions only I strive so hard to be where I thought I’d be at the end of the year. When I look back, I realize, had I not taken these resolutions seriously, God knows, where I’d be wasting time?! These goals, they set your path and give you directions.. all you need to do is follow them. They keep you focused and make you devoid of all the distractions.. Well that indeed is a great power that comes with New Year resolutions. A few incomplete goals are carried forward for next year and the completed ones leave you with immense gratification.

I am waiting for the New Year to come, bringing new hopes and new goals to fulfil.
There was a time when I was very irregular with my goals.. they used to be there on the list, but were in an On and Off position! But not anymore! One thing that I have made sure post marriage is to be very incessant with my goals and New Year resolutions helped me keep them on track.

Do these New Year resolutions work for you? Why yes, why no, you got to write in the comments below ;)

Come back Post

After opening a couple of websites, reading a few pages, looking for a few contests and learning from a few interviews, my head rested on my table for a while, yearning for a nap and finding a motivation to write something on the blog. And then came Coffee to the rescue! Whenever such gestures try to set in me, coffee is the only thing that can rub them off and clean all the clutter inside! What is your rescue? Tell me please..

This year had been a terrific one indeed! And I am going to reflect on it for sure. Whenever I sit to write, words often fail to describe what I feel. And writing a post, brewing my thoughts kind of pulls me back. That’s the reason why I end up writing poetry most of the times (depicting my mental stage sometimes), or a haiku, or write for a contest may be.. but a yapping post gets a little handy and this makes me realize, that this habit of mine, might make my readers run away! I am not sure of the reason yet, but I do have a hunch of it.

Travelling to places, be it anywhere, kind of breaks the flow that I barely maintain! And off late, I haven’t been writing anything, and reading..!! God knows what’s that, off late..Ok.. I know.. that’s bad.. and I am trying real hard to come back to the track, believe me...!! O.. you don’t believe me just yet! Fine.. you will find out for yourself, on your blogs ;)

I have a lot to bring up on my blog and share with you guys.. Stay tuned to my blog and get the updates :) I'm sure you're going to come back!

This is all for now..

Locking Lips

Dark it was around, when you illuminated me with your sensuous touch,
You held my hand, and felt it all, trembling me through. 
Your soft fingers and their seductive touch, 
Fervently raised and charged me up.
My heart was skipping a beat,
And my breath was gasping hard,
You held it tight and kept me intact. 
You came near me, and gave a peck on my cheeks, 
Drowning me with you 
And turning my color to pink from blue!

How I resisted you to come near me, 
and how you didn't stop at all. 
Not a single moment, 
not a single place you left untouched, 
melting me down, giving me a sweet soft kiss.
I love the way you suck my neck so hard,
Panting slowly, leaving your love marks!
And then grasping my hair, you draw yourself so close
Laying your lips on mine, stirring up my soul!
Grabbing my back, you pull me harder
Tremors I feel in my body, taking me to levels so farther!
Your tongue playing with mine,
Dancing and licking and slipping all around
Locking lips
Licking it round
How it bites my lower lip
Arousing me inside, 
Hearing things within us
My inner goddess finally confides!

How steamy things have got
I never ever thought
You would do this to me
I feel so glad, for your love I fought!

Balance it right

My boss is so happy
But why does my wife keeps on cribbing?
Make balance she says!

Gabbling Up!

Gosh! How did you do this?
Getting all over me and making me so crazy!
Giving your heart to me and taking mine
Gazing me all day and night!
Gorgeous eyes, sparkling smile
Gasping hard, when your lips touch mine!

God gave you the gift of gab
Generous you are, that makes you so fab
Grinning in the corner
Guffawing at me
Gaiety I feel, with butterflies in my stomach.

Gathering everyone, gearing up altogether
Ghost they call it of everyone’s life
Giggling at it, I take this over
Governed by your love, I give you its turnover!

Reflections- November

November started with signing up for writing challenges. I signed up NaNoWriMo, which was the National Novel Writing Month, and NoMo. I failed NaNoWriMo miserably, but I don’t regret that. I tried writing initially, but with guests, festivals, work schedule, it took a toll and I couldn’t even go half way through it, which isn’t that bad I suppose. NoMo, I tried writing every single day of the month, I missed a few days in between, but that’s totally alright I guess.

It was a month full of festivity and joy. Spending time with family, visiting my parents, and then travelling for a wedding. It was a pandemonium state, but full of fun! I met my sister as well.
I came to know about a secret admirer of my blog.tim Doesn’t that give a beautiful feeling inside which is totally inexplicable? I never thought someone could secretly like my blog!

I received a wonderful gift from my Secret Santa, and it was bliss to welcome something from someone you don’t even know. I don’t know my Santa yet, and I am really looking forward to get to know about him/her.

It was a month of a few firsts too. For example-
  • My story made it to the final publishing list in one of the anthologies.
  • So were the poems. The books should get printed by January
  • First TangyTuesday pick by Blogadda.
I know it’s very small, but when it’s the first time, it really means a lot (it means at all the other times as well :P)

Saw Tamasha, and I liked it. Yes. It wasn’t everyone’s cup tea, but very nicely done movie. If you ever take life lessons from movie (when you feel it is right), you can surely get some light there.
That pretty much sums up my November. What did you do last month? Any thoughts you mind sharing?

Happy Reading
