Gratitude Post

When the heart is too full it becomes contemplative. I have been reflecting on the writing process and its repercussions. Writing is a very solitary activity. But once it is finished, it is the readers who make it truly complete and interactive. Each written piece speaks in a different tongue to different readers. That is the beauty of the written word. We are all here because we seek validation, we want others to read us otherwise we would all have been content with filling our journals.
I started the blogging journey as a birthday gift to a childhood friend exactly three years ago. But it is in January last year that I started writing daily in response to the Daily Prompts. And that was the beginning of forming bonds with fellow bloggers.
I have learnt so much, I am in awe of so many of you and have formed such beautiful bonds but above all, I am so grateful to each one of you who visits, likes or comments on my blog. Believe me, I am touched beyond words that you find time to do so.
I try to visit as many blogs as possible but I am woefully behind at times. Please know that I love what you write and like to savour each piece of writing from poetry to fiction, from fun write-ups to thought-provoking ones, from music to photography and so on and though I may be late, I try not to miss.
Just wanted to thank each one of you for being kind, supportive, encouraging and generous. I am blessed to have you all in my life.

  1. Beautifully said, Punam. We are grateful to be able to share this space with you. Fortunately, many of us have wonderful lives outside this platform and so we make the most of the time we do get to spend here. I, for one, want to thank you for being such a great writer, friend and reader. Here’s to continuing the writing journey. ❀

  6. You’ve expressed my own thoughts and sentiments beautifully through your touching words my dear. We all know it can be a challenge to keep up with all the amazing blogs that we grow so very fond of and build such wonderful relationships with each other. You are loved and appreciated my dear Punam and we know that the reality is that we each face so many other things to balance outside of our blogs and the touching friendships we’ve built here. Thank you for being here to share your amazing talents and wonderful heart hear my dear!πŸ€— πŸ’ž
