The year that was...

Hey guys,
It's almost the new year. It's so near,you can almost taste it. This year has been crappy for me. So much so that I almost hate it and hate is a really strong word n I don't use it often. It's been terrible personally, emotionally draining and more or less too eventful, in all the wrong ways.
Still, it went really fast, and for that I am grateful. Grateful that all the bad memories are just that now,bad memories. It's so easy to complain of bad times. Easier than contemplating what went wrong and the learning. So I vouched to do just that. What did I achieve? What are the things that went right and the highlights.
The highlight definitely has to be the time well spent with family. A small day trip to Mahableshwar. The week long vacation to Coorg and the Diwali of course. A new beautiful apartment and all the moving on has been great too. Professionaly I was so good when I was working hard. Believing that the job, which wasn't really my dream, I could do so much more with it than just paying bills. It was a revelation. Then yes, there is the actual dream job,which somehow seems tangible now, more than ever. Since I've been so free, emotionally.
Then there it was,the heartache, the pain and the guilt. Dealing with it the entire year now. It hasn't subsided,it's so there all the time, lurking, threatening to show up at any vulnerable moment. But I've learned to deal. I've learnt that it's not going away. Also that looking back is not the solution, it's forward that matters. And the Today, it matters the most. I am happy to have found this freedom in me,this strength and faith that has kept me afloat. This belief in the Light that has given me the will to go on. It's like the worse has happened and I dealt with it and here I am, the strongest yet. It's painful but God is so kind, He lets you remember only the good parts.
Then again, a bygone year reminds you so very strongly that its such a short, minuscule time in your entire life and so tiny in the bigger scheme of things,that I want to chide myself to even think about it in such a big way. All I want to take away from 2013 is that it was a wonderfully trying year that has made me the person I am today and altered me forever, for good.
I so want 2014, I welcome you with open arms,you are mine.

Hey guys,
Have you been to this site before? Design Seeds is a site that captures pallets from beautiful pictures. It even gives you an option to search a particular colour in different colour pallets. This could come in handy when you need to paint or design a space in your home. I am especially loving these minty shades for spring.


Letter to The Mojo

Hey friends,

What does it mean to write a good post? What does it mean to you? I have found myself with a dip in my mojo for a long time now. This post is forced, in an attempt to bring back the beloved mojo. A small letter for it to see that I love it more than anything else, but yes, you are not the only one mojo, I am self made and I can surely do without you, I have my determination with me. But I miss you, come back dear Mojo, I need you, for me to move on. I need you to show me the way further.

For you readers, I will be back with a post that makes more sense.

Ciao till then.

Love Stories are forever

              Great love stories is a series on {this is glamorous} blog. It chronicles the great love stories of famous (often glamorous) people. I just happened to read two of them. Audrey Hepburn is an icon (i can't even say 'was', i love her so much), with utmost grace and poise and there is no denying that in everyone's imagination she would have found love easily. But in reality, it came a lot later in her life, but when it came, it lasted forever. Go here for the lovely story of Audrey and Robbie.

 Both photos from the {this is glamorous} blog.

 Don't forget to look through the other great love stories while you are there. Loved the enchanting love story of Grace Kelly and Prince Rainer III of Monaco.
