Its a brand new month. But that’s not just the only thing new about this day. September is a special month, almost as special hopefully as August was. But before we get in the 5th Gear , here’s a flash back .
Eight months into 2016 , as I take a minute after many many crazy days of donning multiple hats and as many sleepless nights trying to give shape to this new space , I can see how everything seems like the part of a bigger plan.
Nope , I am not a very grateful person & this isn’t a reflections post . But as a believer in fate , I could see August working out like the last few frames of a mystery thriller when every thing starts to make sense . No more talking in circles , here goes.
I kick started 2016 with a VisionBoard in place. Amongst many things , it was centered around Home and Happiness. I realize now how they are one and the same thing for me. Its been a lot of work , it came to me way too late but ‘Being at home’ is ‘Happiness’ and that’s why setting up , entertaining guests and taking a break to spend more time at home , were the highlights of August.
Interestingly , Digital Identity and creativity merged into the idea of ‘Home’ quite seamlessly. My wordpress blog now also has it’s own home so As you can see , August was a month of many firsts .
I won a workplace R&R for the very first time. I had to sadly let it go. But I’ve grieved and am over it now . Infact it definitely was for the better because it helped me choose what I really wanted.
I also attended the fabulous #SheroesSummit. The day I put myself first , took an off to attend something that wasn’t for me as a professional or me as a wife/ mother or daughter-in-law. It was for me . The very first time on a weekday – a day spent learning and unlearning some life lessons. A Post on ‘Learning & Unlearning some Life Lessons @ SheroesSummit ‘ will be up soon.
I was in two minds about my break from work . It was the two incidents above that gave me that gentle shove and pushed me to the other side . So yes the biggest announcement shaping September is , I’ve decided to take 3 months off my life to step back and soak in the picture and figure out my next strokes. I would be documenting this phenomenal phase through #InstagramStories & Tweets and may be picture posts with the tag #ThisAndDoingNothing. Feeling jealous already? Good, that’s exactly the idea!
August was also about winning and let’s see if you find this interesting too.Those amazing guys at Rangroute chose me as one of the winners for an ‘Independence Day’ Photo prompt. Also HostMyBlog guys chose my reply on a Blogging related question to give me a free self hosted site.
Yup , all that happened over one month!
But we are stepping into September and I have Big plans. This space for starters needs to get in better shape [ and so do I , but lets not get into that line of thought right now ] . I am also a part of #MyFriendAlexa campaign by #BlogChatter , so am going to be engaging with old friends and new , reading & sharing a lot of BlogLove and hoping the magic rubs off on my brand new page too!
Am closing this post with a quote that literally defines my life. I ran and ran for so long chasing something I had no clue about till I stopped for a second to realize I was doing it all wrong , cause ‘What you seek is seeking you- Rumi’.
