My favorite post or part of last year/ last month!

Last year on sixth of September, I started my blog. It will the favorite thing, on a personal level for me.

It was something I thought I would do, seeing that my friend Dr Tanya was doing it successfully. But had no concrete date or plan in mind. And one day, just like that I made my first blog post and I became a blogger! As much as it was a surprise for me, it was to my family too. I hadn’t exhibited any desire to write since I had finished my education and I wasn’t even sure that I can write.

My idea was to write about the issues being faced by women over the age of 50. It would include their social, personal and medical issues. Also, since as a person who has always struggled with weight, I have become something of an expert at diets, methods of weight loss and so the hits and misses in this area were to be a part of my blogging agenda.

My writing/ blogging experience is a growing experience as well. I have discovered new things about myself, new abilities and the fact that if I challenged myself, I can go out of my comfort zone and write short stories, flash fiction and poems too! You can imagine my surprise. The most surprising thing was that I was sharing these endeavors with anyone and everyone who cared to read them. I am basically a shy person so this sharing was quite something new for me!

This my favorite part of last year. What is your’s?

Please share either in comments and your feedback. Or you can do a post on the JusJoJan, and write it there.

An interesting way to see the past!

“The best thing about good old days is that we were neither good nor old”

Many a times we fall in this trap, Ah, those good old days. Well we have a tendency to wear rose colored glasses when we look back and see every thing as perfect or semi-perfect. Each aspect of our lives has good and bad sides to it. Enjoy the now, don’t fret about the future and forget about the past.

The dirty word

We should not use this word anymore

Refrain from even mentioning it altogether

Check your tongue, stop your mind don’t utter it

It is considered a dirty word nowadays, so don’t

Environment or climate change

Are just cooked up conspiracies by the dimwits

We are often told by those who are in the know

Completely disregard these mentions if you want

People to respect your views and take you for real

Don’t mention the dirty word.

Do you testify, to tell the truth

The whole truth and nothing but

Do you?

Do we?

Or I

Truth and trust go hand in hand

We expect it from others but not

From ourselves

Why not?

It had to be the duplicity we practice

One rule for me and another for you

That has torn the fabric of this humanity

The pieces are floating on the winds

Blowing through this barren land

Where once grew the flowers of love

Hope and

Happiness

Are we

Willing

To mend our ways

To be the best and honest that

We can be

Do we testify?

Go on, have a good cry or venting

I am here for you, I am listening

If your heart gets too full of emotions

Talk it all out with me, I am listening

It is a cathartic process, to say it aloud

My shoulder is ready for you to cry on

Don’t be shy to open up your heart and

Share your sorrows and joys openly

I’m here for you and I am listening

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “ad/add/AD (Anno Domini).” Use one, use ’em all–bonus points if you fit them all into your post. Have fun!

In this year of 2019 AD, we are surrounded by a world immersed in commercialization. Everyone believes in advertising. Starting from a media empire to a weight loss clinic. We are bombarded by ads morning, and evening and all the times in between. Why do these people want to add to our irritation by showering us with these unwanted commercial, is anyone’s guess. Do they think that seeing the ad of a particular brand of medicine, repeatedly, is going to influence people to go out in droves and ask their doctors to prescribe it for them? Or the advert of a weight loss clinic, offering payment plans is going to make us rush out to them. The mere mention of payment plan options has a completely opposite effect on me! My solution to this problem is to watch tv by turning down the volume. I don’t listen to it anymore.

Your prompt for JusJoJan 2019, January 25th is brought to you by JP! Click here to find her last post (honestly, I’m assuming JP’s a her–sorry, JP, if I’m wrong) and say hi while you’re there! JP’s word for our prompt today is “balance.” Use it anywhere in your post or make it the theme of your post. Have fun!

Here are the rules:

Please be sure to link back to THIS POST for January 25th, 2019.

Life is all about balance. The path we tread has to be balanced between the two extremes. Lean to either side and life falls out of synch. Work or play, everything has to be kept in a balanced and moderate way. Similarly in our health issues, we have to maintain a balance to optimize the benefits.

One of my problems is maintaining my balance. Literally! I am a clumsy person, or maybe I am a flat foot, that makes it difficult to be balanced all the time. When I was younger, I had a lot of falls, injuries and mishaps as I would lose my balance and a catastrophe would happen to my physical self. I have become very careful as I have grown older, but still I trip up. It may be a slippery floor or a step that I failed to see, and there I will be sprawled on the pavement, or the floor or maybe the staircase!

Since I have had both my knees replaced I am. Extra careful. I hold on to handrails whenever available. I see the steps, before climbing the stairs and specially careful in the bathroom. Hope I keep my balance!

Touching and feeling

Exploring and finding

Only our curiosity

Can bring the answers

We seek to learn here

The world is a boring place

For the unimaginative one

For without the urge to explore

And giving in to our curiosity

We would be no better than

All the inanimate objects around us
