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.

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
Truth and trust go hand in hand
We expect it from others but 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
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.

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!

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!

Zoomie is a new word for me, as I am not a dog or cat owner. Here is what my search at google brought up;
Zoomie as in reference to dogs!

Never criticize someone until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes, that way, when you criticize them, they won’t be able to hear you from that far away plus, you’ll have their shoes.

Your prompt for JusJoJan 2019, January 22nd is brought to you by Pamela! Click here to find her last post and say hi while you’re there! Pamela’s word for our prompt today is “curiosity.” Use it anywhere in your post or make it the theme of your post. Have fun!
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
