A Message Of Gratitude

to all the people who reached out to me after my last post. I am a little overwhelmed by the number of comments and emails I got over my crappy post.

Thank you.

I am well now. I can’t say that unhappiness has suddenly left me alone and a sense of glee has engulfed me yet, but I am okay. And I am not alone.

I am usually a happy person, on a day to day basis. I don’t fret over small things and feel grateful for having what I have. But then there are days when things fall apart successively and nothing seems to get better. Having periods on such days doesn’t help either and I turn into a leaking tap or an explosive bomb which is ready  to explode any moment with a single spark five miles away. Last week was such a time.

I know, I am responsible for a number of things that are wrong in my life. I don’t know how long I can blame destiny for not having what I want. If I could get a dollar for every time I have taken a wrong decision in my life I would probably be a rich person by now. But that isn’t how life works.

I was watching “The Big Bang Theory” one day and there was this scene where Penny takes Sheldon to a restaurant and asks him to find an answer to something that has been bothering him in a fortune cookie.

I liked the idea and looked up online to find something like a fortune cookie. I digitally cracked open a fortune cookie and it said, ” Seek out a new environment if you are stuck in a rut”. The second time it said, “Work with what you have”.

I don’t know if it was a coincidence or what but I actually used the “stuck in a rut line” in my last post.

Anyway, I am still going to take a break from blogging for a while. I need to concentrate on something I have been working on.

Thank you to all the people who left me encouraging comments and special thanks to Traci York for sharing my post and sending all that love my way.

The night is darkest just before the dawn and I hope the dawn is coming. For you, for me, for everyone who is waiting for the dark to diminish. 🙂

  1. I’m happy to hear that. Sure there would be no dark side without a bright side just behind.
    Don’t pay attention to your moods when you’re in period. I’ve got the same mood swing too , i understood to let it go when it happens.
    Cheer up! 💐


  2. Very good to hear you are making sense of the situation and seeing things that inspire or change a thought. A break might be just the thing to focus on you too. Ruts can become habits and, like all bad ones, are easy to find and very hard to lose.

    Nice to read this update and never feel isolated 😊

  3. You are very welcome! It really made my day too, not only to hear that you’re feeling much better, but to see all the messages of encouragement you received after my very brief (couple sentences) comment in the group. I hope you can now start your blogging break on a much more positive note, and I look forward to seeing you when you return! Brightest of blessings to you!


  4. Being a writer is like being a father, something that you will have to prove to yourself every day. Not always the way to the first book, or text published on a blog, is upholstered with tatters of writer’s skin.

    I feel that you are ready to write your first book, the second even the third. You can only write your first book once, you will never go through that innocence again.

    Congratulations. I invite you to visit my blog and read the most recent entry entitled “The smell of fear”.
