Since it is January and it is chilling cold a treat for me would be to tuck myself in the warmth of my bed. But that wouldn’t be all. I would have a nice small bowl of tomato soup, with some sprinkled pepper, to drink . And then, I would love to read a new book, that I had purchased a few days back, in the glowing light of my study lamp. Just before slipping off to sleep, I would write or draw using my new (bright blue and orange coloured) pens.
No ice-creams for the time being but cakes wouldn’t be that harmful I think. And since that’s a nice thought… maybe, I shall treat myself with a nice fruit cream cake tomorrow.

What happened when I was away from my blog for these many days?
My blog became three years old. Yaaay!!!
The day when I had started blogging I had my apprehensions about reaching this far. I was nervous and scared and the only question that came to my mind was – who is going to read my blog. I dismissed this thought and followed my twitching fingers. The result – my fingers were in love with the keyboard and followed my hearts dictations quite obediently.
Funny thing was – the first year I wrote turning a deaf ear to my negative thoughts. Then came… a heart breaking revelation. Some people had shared their feelings of struggle of keeping their blog going. Some also wrote, how they had enjoyed it in the 1st year and then it became a bumpy ride with their interest soon fading away. One had strongly suggested that on trying hard, one’s blog could survive only for two years. As my blog was coming close to a second year, I was visited by my own ghostly unsupportive thoughts, again.
Fear had raised a question – will I be able to continue swimming or be drowned by my negative thoughts? The fact – I survived and swam through another year of a blogging current.
Today, as I see… the first year, I stood on the shores watching and waiting; then the second year, I rushed in wanting to be washed away by the current; and now as I begin a third year, I see myself joyfully swimming and floating in the salt of my creativity.
But…wait, that’s not it….
What made all this possible? All this was possible because of the love, support and encouragement of my fellow blogger friends and readers.
Thanks dear friends for all your comments, follows and likes. Thanks for being my life support jacket when the negative discouraging tide was high. Thanks for investing your time into reading my posts. I hope to keep on adding more to this blog.
Some sweet treats. Please enjoy! 🙂
Birthday’s and other occasions are good enough to treat oneself with some yummy confectioneries. Here’s one that I had last year for my birthday.
Why limit oneself with only sweets and chocolates when there are some natural treats too, that one can feast on? It is a real treat to go pick fruits and eat from one’s garden. I was home last month and I did, just that.
When nature’s supermarket is up for sale, it’s a treat for these someone too. Why should we only enjoy the produce?
