Look... they are so many!

Getting back to writing is really tough. Thinking of writing a blogpost and then editing it, finding the right picture and then posting it. It feels way more tedious than it actually is. And I have been opening my laptop so many times, opened Word, thought of writing something, stared at the blank screen and then shut it down. This had been my routine for the past few months. Getting back isn’t easy but it sure is rewarding. It's therapeutic as well and I realize this as I am typing this sentence. When I look back at the month that has gone by, all I want to think about are all the great things that came my way. And so I thought why not make a list of it?! Let’s see what I’ve got: 

1.   Number one to top the list would be the way my baby started laughing at small triggers. Just a small naughty expression and she is all gaga over it. The constant giggling and laughter is nothing but honey to my ears.

2.  Friendships Day. There wasn’t any celebration per se but an outing with your friends with a good food and eventful day is enough to be worthy of it.

3.   Clicking cutest of pictures of my baby!

4.   I left the baby home for the first time and went for an event. I made a few connections and met new people. What I took from that event was lots of confidence and self-realization. Also, I never thought the baby would be able to stay without me for 8 long hours and yet she did! Which also gives the green signal to get back to work asap.

5.  Signing up for an option which might give a new direction to my life. I am super-duper excited to learn this new thing and I hope it falls in place. Touchwood.

6.     Conversation with my best friend for an hour or two… just like old days.

7.     Having my best friend by my side who takes all the possible efforts to ensure I’m fine.

8.     Snapchat videos with my baby.

9.    Materializing the casual discussion into an actual plan with my cousins. Traveling with my Girl tribe will be nothing but full of surprises. Well, this makes me realize, the randomness of discussion is directly proportional to its materialization. So peeps, chuck all the planning and take your random thoughts a tad too serious… you never where you might land up.

10.  Donated to #KeralaFloods and promoted for it on Social Media. It’s always important to do your bit.

11.    Got Rakhi gifts for my siblings and received wonderful gifts too in return.

12.    Made space for a plant in my room.

13.    De-cluttered to some extent.

14.  Had the fruit from the plant whose seed I planted 3 years ago. It was bliss.

15.  Started with the class I signed up for and it is going good so far.

16. Met this new person and I am being really positive after the meeting. Keeping my fingers crossed. For once, I am thinking about myself before doing anything.

17.   Finished reading the book I started long back.

18.  Offered support to my sister and gave wings to her logic and somehow brought the whole family on the same page. *If only I could muster this much courage for myself* (rolling eyes).

19.  Ordering those touch and feel books for my baby. The new additions in her collection were the puppet and finger books. The joy on her face was precious.

20. It was my baby's first Rakhi and the day went well. We went for bowling and games and it was wonderful. I think we should do it more often!

At the end of the month I feel nothing but positive… and hopeful for a better tomorrow.  Do you guys feel the same way? This was my way of getting back to writing and see some light that I was continuously escaping from, from a long time.

    1. Hi Shilpa! The exciting part I am feeling right now, seeing your comments but so far it was mostly tough! Keeping my fingers crossed to continue this way! Thank you so much for visiting and sharing!


  2. Good to see you becomes a habit once you keep at it. Nice to see that August was a good month for you with so much to reflect on.

    1. Thanks Sanch! So good to hear from you! How are you doing? I hope everything is going good around you. Writing this post made me realize it is always about which side of life one wants to look at! And it is always our choice!


  3. Hi Geetika--I'm back to my blog after a long break too, and it can be tough.

    You're making your comeback with the right spirit :)--that's a lovely account of your August.

    1. It surely IS tough, D. So happy you are back as well. Thank you so much for reading :)


  4. I know this feeling of getting back to writing after having a baby very well. It’s really wonderful. And you did have many lovely moments in August! Having friends to talk to is simply the best which I’m missing out on a daily basis. Aren’t those touch and feel books adorable? Love and hugs to your little munchkin! Have a great month ahead, Geetika! :)

    1. You should really catch up with your friends, Vinitha. It's nothing but rewarding. Yes! Absolutely! Those books are just so nice to touch and feel :)
      Thank you for your best wishes and all the good luck to your way!


  5. Hey Geetika, good to know you doing well and the baby is in good shape. I am happy that you enjoying a ME time, very important for a mother.

  6. Hey Geet! Welcome back, we sure missed you around.

    Looking forward to many posts from you now that you are mommy and will have many experiences to share.

    1. You did? I am so super duper happy to hear from you Soumya! Are you sure? I thought of writing a few things about being mommy and the baby but then I was skeptical at the same time, wondering if anyone would be interested in reading the mom life. And so I dropped the idea altogether, thinking it might bore my readers.

      But a nudge from you might push me to share a few things. :))

      Thanks again! I am so happy that you dropped by :)


  7. Great, and welcome back... Keep up The good work


Thanks for dropping by :)
