31 December 2012

The last time I wrote an entry here, I was in another place. Thanks be to Almighty, we are now in a place that we are learning to love and enjoy. The last month especially has been a month of many changes - mental, spiritual and physical. I can sense that the Universe is hearing me out and trying its best to take care of me. Finally, I feel at peace with my surroundings and physical environment, which is very important for mental peace and serenity.

There have been difficult situations both online and offline but looking back it seems that they have passed on for good. The paths weren't easy and joyous always but we are still learning - leaning to make peace and plod on inspite of everything.

There have been sad events all around me but still I hope and have faith.

As I am on the threshold of 2013, I strive to be more aware and joyous.

Joy always.

As we enter into a new phase and place :)

Tomorrow we leave this place. I have been here for about twenty-six months. In these months, many many important events of my life took place - submission of my Ph. D. thesis, my wedding, Chennai Bloggers Club among the many. I am thankful to providence for the wonderful blessings that were bestowed upon me and my family.

As we undertake our journey to another place, we carry a bit of this place in us. We can't be more thankful for everything thus far.

The journey continues . . .

All praise be to the Divine.

Doing the happy dance with gratitude

He has been good to us. For a long time, my husband was looking for a permanent position to stabilise his career and on the 5th, we found out that he has been offered one. Wow! And soon, god-willing, we will be relocating to the land of sunshine, beaches and laughter - Goa.

Can't be more grateful.

Today's gratitude

Today I am thankful for the people whose concern and care sweeps me off my feet. I am grateful for:

~ Our regular auto-rickshaw driver who is so caring that he takes extra effort to see that each detail is in place. Of course, his consistent questions are bit irritating but to know that he cares gives us a joyous feeling

~ The people in the restaurant where we eat regularly are so mindful of us that they see to it that everything is in place for us.

~ The students who toiled effortlessly for the success of the conference. It was a delight to see them move here and there tirelessly.

Travel gratitude

The second half of the year has been hectic with travelling to many places. I am grateful for the joy of travelling to Assam for the first time. It is wonderful to be able to revel in the beauty of new landscapes and people.

Another year
all grown up and all of 33
can't be more thankful
for the wholesome and holesome 32 years
life goes on 
richer and sweeter
by his grace
and his gaze
for he has made me
more than a conqueror

Just two more days for October!

Another two more days and the curtains fall on September. I can see October waiting patiently in the green room waiting to arrive and turn the place a little different than what was in September. There's another reason for me to be filled with joy -- My walk on this earth will complete another year giving way to a new year. It feels splendid to have come this far.

Today my heart and mind is overwhelmed with gratitude for many many things. I cannot list out every single one but here's a few:

~ The cool weather with bursts of rain at times
~ The joy of conversations in the car with NS and R
~ The internet which disseminates wonderful information hitherto unknown to me
~ Meeting new and talented people through different groups
~ Laughter in abundance
~ Kindred spirit in M

Sept 15, Saturday

                                                    Adiago in G minor by Albinoni    

Today it's a year since I last spoke to someone very close to me. I am thankful that I met that wonderful person in my life - I am thankful for the music, the thoughts and the conversations. You are always on my mind.

And, I am thankful for the people who were part of my life yesterday and today. I don't know what tomorrow holds but I am grateful for today.

Joy always :)

Seven months and thirteen days

Whenever someone asks me about the irregular entries of this blog, I feel a bit uneasy. Why? This blog is meant to record my gratitude on an everyday basis. I have so many things to be grateful for but I don't record them.

Today, I am thankful for:
~ The internet without which I shall be missing out on many things
~ The peaceful flow of the day so far
~ Th positivity around me
~ I am glad that I can write and express myself
~ For the ability to smile and be happy

Why no entries?

There have been so many instances for which I was overwhelmed with gratitude but haven't cared to wrte them down. Does that make me less grateful? No.

~ It has been a year of being married
~ I have realised that sweating the small stuff is absolutely unnecessary when one has the option of being thankful for many many blessings
~ I am surrounded by people who love me inspite of me being not-so-pleasant
~ My memories keep me company in times of being lonely

Small surprises that bring a smile

Today morning after I came to the Staff room having finished a class, I found a bag waiting for me. It was from my mother. She had sent some goodies which included my favourite mutton cutlets, and certain other eatables. I was overjoyed. My mom had sent these things with a non-teaching staff who had gone to Chennai for the weekend.

She made me smile and I am grateful for/to her and her thoughtfulness.
