B – Blogging

When it comes to the second letter B, I was confused what to choose. But, then I thought B for me belongs to blogging. I started blogging years back but put it on a halt to focus on writing my book. Now, I’ve started blogging again. In the initial days, when I saw this word, I used to wonder what the bloggers did. How did they choose their topics and how are their minds so active about everything? Frankly, I started out as an amateur blogger who writes everything and anything I like. But I have never ever been an active blogger and as days passed by, I lost my interest in it. But, then gradually I understood the terms of being a good and active blogger. I understood the importance of writing daily, be it in writing or blogging. I understood the value of punctuality in writing. And thankfully, I make up my mind to start it on a daily basis, without wasting much time. So, from now onwards, I hope I will write or blog daily to avoid the halts in my writing. And, I’m sure this challenge will help me to be an active and punctual blogger.

A – Adhira

I recently heard about this challenge from my friend and I instantly got excited about participating in it. Though I am not an active blogger, and also a first timer in participating in such contests. I am sure I will try to write as per the guidelines. Many participating bloggers choose different themes to write upon. But I’m clueless! So, I chose words which, directly or indirectly, belong to me in my day-to-day life. Words, which actually mattered the most to me.

So, as far as the first letter goes. A for me stands for Adhira. A fictional character I created 3 years ago.

Love yourself

‘Loving Yourself’

It seems very easy in words but very difficult to act upon. It’s like how we always love to give suggestions to others and want them to follow them but when it comes to ourselves we find it very difficult to apply it. So, here are some easy steps which we can follow in our day-to-day routine to make our life sweet, simple and beautiful. After all, loving ourselves is not as difficult as we think it is. Little bit of selfishness towards self is not a crime to do.

Express Yourself – More than loving someone, expressing it is more important. Whatever emotion you have, just express it. Love, hate, anger, jealousy, sympathy, whatever the emotion is feel it and express, because not everyone has the power of assumption to know your situation. We always think that other person will know our feelings automatically and that they will realize it. But this is not possible if we can’t express anything to them.

Love Just Happens

Mumbai’s weather was always unpredictable. One can never assume how long a bright sunny day will remain before clouds converge and rains start heavily. Today was such a day. I woke up to the sun’s rays on my face and now it is raining like the sun has gone on vacation since the last few days. Clouds were gathered in the sky and the fragrance of wet mud filled up my nostrils.

In spite of being annoyed by the weather, I decided to enjoy it with a cup of coffee and my favorite book. So I settled down in my balcony with three of my favorite things: books, coffee and music. I am fascinated by rains, because it makes everything look fresh and new. The surroundings become much cleaner and the trees look brighter. The birds come out to sing their melodious tunes once again. I saw a couple trying to shelter themselves from the rain. The whole scene was visible from my balcony and a chill breeze took me down my memory lane.
