Gratitude list- August


Print
Source
August was all about happiness, festivity, good times, family and friends! And that month too passed. And here we are in September! Can’t believe this year is going to be over soon! Anyway, that’s how August treated me:

- This month I travelled to my hometown and took the much-awaited solo trip. Actually, it wasn’t solo, it was dolo :P (coz it was my sister and me who took this trip together). Both of us wanted to do it and we finally did it this month. We went to Kasol and it was different. We met quite a variety of people in our journey and explored things that we hadn’t before. I am happy that we were back safely and the trip was filled with fun, laughter and adventures! I feel grateful for the wonderful family and even more understanding husband that I have! Not even once did he question or hitched about the idea of travelling solo. Touchwood!

- Then was the celebration time! Rakshabandhan! And the day was filled with meeting all the relatives and keep the joy of festivity alive. Isn’t it fun to meet all the family members after a long time? And the joy simply doubles when the gathering falls on festivals!

- I was home and happy to be back. No matter how much I wander here and there, but it always feels back to be home, in the same room, with the same man :P! It’s peaceful.

- My mother's recovery is on track and it was bliss to her doing her own chores, move out and do whatever she wanted to do.

- Two of my dear friends visited my city and it was... nostalgic to meet them! We've completed a decade together and we realised how kiddos we used to be and now we're all grown-ups! It's really a strange feeling!

Lots of things have been happening around and this month is going to bring in even more. I am happy that with every passing day, I trying to learn new things and understand a lot of stuff that works around me!

How did August treat you? And what are your plans for September? Anything special coming up? Share with me in the comments below.


Cheers

This month I will be taking part in #MyFriendAlexa campaign to take my Alexa rank to the next level with Blogchatter . My current Global rank is- 12,78,569 (the less the better) and Rank in India is 71,752. My unique hashtag name is going to be #boisterouslyread. I hope to see a significant change by the end of the month :)

  14. August was a month of turnaround for me... after a pretty bad last few months, I finally seem to have started making that turn in my life. Hopefully, will have more to be grateful for in the months to come :)

  15. On the Alexa rank, the more you write the better it gets. But then it is the commitment of a lifetime, which more than 99% can't make. So, it's a huge challenge for anybody who gets going. Good luck 😊

    1. Yes. Very true. But it's not just the Alexa rank that matters. It's the invisible force that pushes you to read and write and network more. Writing, sometime or the other does take a back seat, that sure is a fact, but that time doesn't come now is why Alexa rank or any other thing for that matter.

      What you're saying is so true and I am just thinking of how far can it take me this month :)

      Thank you.

      Cheers

  22. Such a power packed August Geets! Fabulous. I was laughing my ass off at 'dolo trip' LOL>>>
    So September for me is a month where I deepen my relationship with blogging, mainly because of BlogChatter's #MyFriendAlexa and I plan on building some consistency with blogging and continuing even after the campaign ends.

  27. Looks like you had a lovely month :). You know I always quite like the idea of such a gratitude list which just makes you thankful at what you got or achieved and helps you look forward to even better times :D.

    Solo trips are always fun and I have been thinking of going on one since like a long time. A trip with my friends I had planned for last month got cancelled towards the end and that was quite sad in the end :/.

    Always fun meeting long lost friends and family, no? I will finally be meeting my folks next month during Diwali after about 6 months or so.

    Wish your mom a speedy recovery :).

    1. You should write your gratitude list every month and see the difference it brings in your life.
      And go ahead with the Solo trip as well.
      Thank you so much for your warm wishes!
