Dear Reader,

I feel sentimental (huhh when I don’t 😛 ) . Seriously, I am overwhelmed by the love and appreciation you have shown towards me. FIRST of all A BIG THANK YOU to all of you…

The start of year marked the milestone of 100 FOLLOWERS to the journey of my blogging. I know it is a baby step and baby achievement but it indeed bolster the fact that you all have accepted me as a part of your world…your family. This is what makes my heart reach out to you.

I started this blog in Nov’16, out of sheer depression and frustrations, by the continuous failures in my life. Initially I did try to calm myself by assuring that the dark clouds will fade away some day. However, I will be very honest, it did not and the streak of failures just went on…marked by utter disappointment, loss of self-confidence and disappearance of any tinge of motivation. Moreover, the walk through these dark valleys becomes difficult when you are being judged by your peers on every step you take. Funny thing is they come to you with advice just to show you that the path you are moving on is not your cup of tea… I smile now writing this though I did cry in my solitary moments (YES!!! Guys DO cry).

I must say , I have very few friends in my life along with my family, who have always been in the hindsight waiting to support me when I fall and showing that there is always a little bit of goodness in even the worst days… It was then when I started writing…I found my words… I found my weapon… I found the light to illuminate the roads…
Though I didn’t know still which road to walk on, BUT I don’t care until I feel content with me…I feel happiness within me…

Well, that’s too much of my sad little story….No No Pls don’t feel sympathetic now for me. I am like you…Like the others who all have their own dark valleys to pass through…own dark clouds to come out from… If you do feel empathetic or sympathetic…help people who are still lost and wants a hand to hold on to…

Back to 100 followers !!! I kept on writing to vent out my emotional surges since last 2 years, but never did enter the actual world of blogging. My blog lay in some corner of WordPress with mere 7 followers and few likes from the people I knew personally. (They have been my sincere Readers). But during the last week of December I found my post being liked by someone I did not know. I went to his blog and was mesmerized by the posts and the community he was a part of.

Dee Kay !!! Thanks a lot brother…This guy is one gem of a person. He can motivate you and help you selflessly. He guides you and stands beside you in your every step. He introduced me to the actual world of blogging…helped me to understand this world which was filled with humility and courteousness, unlike the real world. I thank him from the core of my heart. Do visit his blog…HE will definitely inspire you….

This post is getting long but please bear if you are still reading.

It has been ony 10 ten days that I met the blogging community and my followers increased from 7 to 100.

100 hearts touched mine…100 families accepted me…100 lovely souls believed in me…I feel humble by the warmth of your love…

I thank every one of those who have visited my blog…liked or commented my posts….liked or commented on my comments…

A writer is nothing without the readers and so YOU are the one who DEFINES me…THANK you so much…

I wish only the best and happiness to you…Sending loads of love and smiles towards you !!!
