So my blog is up and running and here I am pondering over all these topics running amok in my head shouting “pick me pick me” ! Just as I was about to pick one of them there was this wild card entry who persuaded me to give the readers a raw perspective of how this blog came about and what to expect.
So Why A Blog In The First Place ?
Well I would have loved to tell you this perfect story of me being inspired by one of those life-changing moments or being a seasoned writer by profession, blogging comes to me naturally and all that. But umm the truth about this decision to blog burgeons from the fact that I am a chatterbox ! Back in college and even in my office where I had to do a lot of the boring coding (used to be a software techie and hated it, more on that later !) I always used to find time to rant my thoughts for hours with some innocent friend of mine or even my bosses :D. And they used to tell me I should maybe start penning all this down and I would do great. Whether it is because they loved it or wanted to get over with it fast I still wonder sometimes. 😛 Anyways some of my ramblings even helped them to overcome some tough spots in their lives and I would surely want to believe in the first reason and here I am !
This blog would be the one-stop destination where I can freely express my thoughts and feelings and share a few (wacky) ideas I have, which could bring some happiness and positive changes to the people who come across my blog. And of course listen to your ideas as well so that we will both have made our path to happiness a little more perfect. I firmly believe that happiness often lies in the small li’l things in our daily life but we go stomping across the place to find some big ones all the while ignoring the obvious ones. Life is small and the beauty of it is in those tiny details. It is in those moments we stop trying so hard to be grand and allow ourselves to be small, to be real.
Also, with an insatiable craving for traveling (which grows every single day I swear!!), this blog is bound to see quite a number of our travel experiences, and tips and tricks to help you plan your next adventure as well. We spend ages poring over reviews and researching and planning most of our getaways and it only seems fair to share it so that you can get a custom vacation at your fingertips. Oh, and we also have our own share of spur of the moment, road trips feeling the wind in our hair, singing our heart out, chasing the sun and making random stops to take pretty pics or because we had to stop to figure out why the GPS put us in the middle of nowhere 😛 And whatever the reason is, you will surely get to read about it, I promise 🙂
One thing which I am not going to make promises about, is giving life lessons and shortcuts to “happily-ever-afters” on a platter! But I can assure you that this blog would have only the truth and things which we wish were true and the things that makes us pause right in the middle of our happening life and yes, things we do not typically say out loud. I do simply love writing and know that it is something which you can always go back to when you are overwhelmed with emotions and it almost becomes a part of you(I used to write in college and even won prizes for the literary events ;)).
But I also admit that, one of my darkest fears is if my blog would be drowned in the ocean of all the amazing blogs out there ! But then I realized if mine made some difference in atleast one person’s life it would be still worth it ! And to add on, since none of us know how long we are going to be a part of this crazy perfect life, till the time I get to hang around, I may as well make as much noise as I can rather than being a silent spectator 😀
So as I hit publish, I hope you would have some fun with my blog and I would absolutely love if you indeed get inspired with my posts but most of all I wish when you leave, you find your day is just a little bit brighter than it was 🙂
