Gratitude Post January


Print
Finally, making time for this wonderful activity I have been longing to write. Thank you Vidya, for coming with such a marvelous initiative. This post is dedicated to you.

January was a month full of crazy work hours. Writing took a backseat. But there were quite a few things that caught my attention, things I am grateful for and writing a post like this is always a gratifying experience. Reflecting on things that help you keep grounded, is something I look forward to.
The month went by in haste and now it has come to an end. Saying time flies is merely a cliché that we hear, read, and talk with every single person. But the good part is, time has been good to all of us, that’s the reason why don’t realize when it flew away. Isn’t it?

I wanted to have my own custom domain name and I wanted this to happen in December itself. But as they say, everything happens for a reason. And this new year, in this first month, I now have my own custom domain name. The feeling is bliss. I cannot thank Sid enough for helping me out at every step.

Having a wonderful family and a husband that lets you be is a rare thing to see. I am so grateful to have A in my life. With him, even the biggest of worries seem so little, because he is the one who keeps his cool intact and that helps me maintain my cool.

The anthology that has my poems and story will be out next month. Pre-orders for the same have started on Amazon. You too can order a copy of yours and I’m sure, it will be an intriguing read for you. It’s available at 10% discount right now, with free COD. Once the book is out in the market, it will be chargeable. That’s a tremendous start to New Year, don’t you think?

Results were out this month of my students who gave the exams in December. 4 of them bagged AIR ranks (16, 20, 24, 25)! All of them my students. The feeling is simply inexplicable. It was a combined effort of all the teachers who worked equally hard and students of course, without whose dedication it would never have been possible. But hey, the bigger part is, maximum students got highest marks in my subjects! Yes! I know, that’s kind of big! When I learned this, I was dancing with joy. I now realize how exhilarating teachers and parents feel when they see their children do well. At the end of the day, all the efforts and pains seem worthy.

My dog. He seems to be more attached with me. He always wants to play. The moment he see me coming near him, he starts wagging his tail and brings his ball, asking me play with him. There is so much of innocence in those tiny eyes.

Due to crazy work hours, I could barely give time to my family. My niece and nephew didn’t like it, but understood my situation as well. Kids.. they teach you to find happiness in the smallest of things. They learned how to play Uno, and every single night before going to bed, they wanted me to accompany them. It was fun. And I too was glad, for spending time with them.
There are countless things that we overlook every day and that is where Vidya Sury comes in. She binds us together. Making an effort to initiate this activity is the best thing to do in the beginning of a New Year.

I am pleased to be a part of Gratitude Circle workshop and look forward for the coming ones.
