Meditating Monks #WordlessWednesday

August 31, 2016

How was your Week?

Are you grateful for something?

Yes, I am. We went to Meditation garden in the heart of our small city– Panchkula, which shares its border with Chandigarh.

There were Acupressure paths made of stone pellets of different sizes and textures.

Celebrating one year anniversary: A journey worth embarking on

August 23, 2016

I’m so excited that it’s is my first blog birthday! I started writing this blog with no set goals and rules but I knew it was something I had wanted to do for a long time.

one year anniversary

It was a place to share my experiences and its still same.

I loved it when I see myself as a part of wonderful community who share the same passion as mine.

Looking back, I could see how my writings have matured. However, I have few posts close to my heart- Sharing 10 of them with you on completing one year anniversary:

I’ve written almost 100 posts on my blog from Parenting, to People, Travel, Life and Relationships.

I honestly cannot thank all of you guys enough for supporting me over the last year, and I promise it does not go un-noticed.

I want to thank you all for subscribing, liking and commenting. It has been you that has kept me blogging and you all have contributed to this woman’s smile.

I tried my hand at fiction, I took part in Blogging Marathons. A quest to know about daily lives of Bloggers made me start a series of posts. It was a journey worth embarking on.

I don’t have any boastful figures to show but yes, I am a part of community and it gives me a sense of belonging. I promise to keep trying my best and of course I would love to hear from you all, on what you have enjoyed so that I can continue on the right path.

Keep showering your love with your presence.

You can also connect with me on – Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and Instagram.
