One Year Of Writing!

Today, it was a great surprise for me when the website wished me a happy one year anniversary! It has been a year! OMG. Not completely believing it, I cross-checked with the date when I first clicked on ‘publish’ – 15 April, 2014!

Woot!!!

A lot can happen in a year. A few things you plan for, while others just unfold!  One thing I have realised is there is a great pleasure in doing something you love, but the thrill of doing something that makes you uncomfortable , and you successfully overcoming you inhibitions, is incomparable. And keep doing it till it becomes a part of you,  that you actually start another blog ( yeah, blatant marketing – upluscollective.wordpress.com), are always thinking of what next should I write about, are looking around for inspiration, and are always learning.

In addition to that, I also have realised that I use ‘absolutely’ a lot. And also, ‘also’ and ‘and’.

For me, just like I had hoped in my first post,  it was quite an experience. But I don’t think I have been able to really “improve” in my writing skills, or even to “untangle” my thoughts – I may just have ended up tangling them even further, in fact. But I am totally enjoying this journey, and that is what really matters!

Cheers to one year and more! 😀

#Note to self – Think about the next thing you never thought you would do, and jump (into it, of course)! 😉

Inspiration

The first thing that really fascinated me when I started writing was the “inspire me!” option. The word inspire has so much power that without even hitting on it, I am already inspired! 🙂

Seriously, coming to think of it, the one thing that is common to all our achievements till date is – Inspiration! Sometimes all you need is to see that one image, read that one line, meet that one person, visualize that one goal or take that one deep breath, and it, as though, magically lifts you up. All the tiredness, baggage, negativity, frustration, stress disappears into thin air. That is the power of inspiration.

Inspiration is more important than perspiration. Rather, perspiration becomes a cake-walk for the inspired ones. It is what keeps us going. There are various facets to it, but it is important to identify what inspires you the most, and cherish that. THAT is most vital aspect to your living.

And be inspired enough to probably lead a life that is so inspiring.
