Thankful Day of the Week - #3 Family

When you have a beautiful family you don't need anything else. I would never say mine is a perfect one and there are times I have wondered, “Why God, Why I was born into this crazy family?” … But I would never trade anyone of them for anything else in this world. Thou they all eat my brain often; they have been there for me for everything. Moments even when I failed to be a perfect daughter, my parents still loved me and stood for me. Times even when I was rude to my siblings, and still they keep me more close. Distance may separate me from my cousins and relatives, but it only takes one buzz or call to get them all next to me. 

Thank you for been my family. Love you always.

Thankful Day of the Week - #2 Spouse/Significant Other

Dear Still-Unknown-Future Significant Other of Mine,

I don’t know whether you exist, or even if you do, have no idea where you are. Actually no pressure, you can take your own sweet time to crash land on me. I don’t mind waiting for some more years, as I already got plans and if you happen to cross my way soon, you may feel unattended at times. So why complicate life… take your time and enjoy when you could.

But I just want to let you know, if we chose to spend the rest of our life together, I really would be thankful to you as years pass. Because you would have accepted me the way I am/or given up trying to change me. You would be tolerating my in-numerous insane acts and thoughts. You would be so bored hearing me blabber nonstop for hours and yet willing to lend your ears and attention. You obviously would be taking my unpredictable mood swings in a good way, or else you would have been out of this for long. So one day, may be on our nth anniversary or some special day or one random night at the beach, I would hug you and let you know that I am grateful to you for walking down into my life. For making me a much more better crazy person and leaving me no choice but to fall in love with you over and over again every morning.

Thank you.

Thankful Tuesdays - #1. Why Start This Challenge?

Today evening when I was cuddled up in couch with Jodi Picoult’s Nineteen Minutes, knock knock voiced my phone bringing a message from Ishitaa saying, "Leo is taking part in a Tuesday gratitude challenge. Check if you wanna do it." After cajoling her to join in too and literally doing a toss whether to do or not through WhatsApp, we both decided to do this 52 week Tuesday Challenge. So thanks to Leo. 

I am doing this, in a way to get rid of my famous writer’s block and become more regular in writing. And it’s so difficult to be grateful for the small yet significant blessings in our everyday life. So maybe after this, I can be a bit more positive and optimistic towards my life. 

P.S. I am modifying Thankful Tuesdays as Thankful Day of the Week. I will be posting on one of the seven days of the week.
