Glad to get back once more this month to make a gratitude post, it’s one of the meaningful activities of my life, making a list of all the small little happenings and learnings that brought me happiness and joy, reliving moments are therapeutic and energizes me. I am delayed by one day to complete this post, but keen to ensure that I don’t miss the gratitude post for the month J
There were moments in this month I felt drained with energy levels going low, listening to a lot of painful experiences can influence us and even affect our physical health. I am grateful for some very lovely people with whom I can share and de stress myself.
I strongly believe that some people are destined to be part of our lives; and am glad for all the students who come to our centre, looks like they are all part of Divine plan helping me learn, understand and grow.
Here goes my list which is overwhelming me right now as I write:
This month began with the engagement of my niece, followed by her wedding – family time to be together and have some fun.
Then another opportunity for me to travel – this time both me and my daughter attended the National Convention organized by the Young Women Christian Association, India. She was a youth delegate and I was part of the women’s team. The theme was Women against Violence, held in Goa. The place was beautiful meant for spiritual renewal and very refreshing experience for both of us, meeting different people, a lot of learning and of course, little time to move around.
We could just squeeze some time in our breaks and managed to see St Francis Xavier’s’ church, a popular saint and the distance was just a kilometer from where we stayed, so we could just take a walk and admire the beauty of the church, also pray for a while and take one small round to get the feel of the city. We visited another church at panjam and then a nearby beach. I had been to Goa years ago as a youngster and visited now after almost 3 decades. It was the first time for my daughter so with given limitation of time, we couldn’t go very far. Nevertheless I am grateful for this opportunity and look forward for a family trip.
This month I had some discomforts in my body – I am grateful for they were pointers for being negligent. I visited the doctor and everything under controlJ As a precautionary measure, I took my T3T4 TSH and also fast blood sugar to ensure that all is well with my body, grateful that everything is fine.
This month was very busy and kept me occupied on the professional front, reports, papers, sessions and coordinating activities.
I got back to physical fitness- once again renewing myself with yoga, meditation and practicing gratitude and keeping myself happy and vibrant.
Glad for the thoughtfulness from friends, a lovely diary of 2018, signed and given to me with love, A parcel which had a pretty saree from another friend who surprised me, then there was an expression of gratitude I truly appreciate small little acts.
I gifted myself a small book, inspired by shilpa – who writes at https://shilpaagarg.com/2018/02/read-more.html who takes up reading challenges and given some tips to read many books- so this month I picked up a book something light and humorous, so got the book from Amazon, Twinkle khanna’s “The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad”. Enjoying reading, few more pages left to complete, feeling J happy could complete it before this month J
There was a session for the Telengana State Police and I was happy to be the Resource person to take one session on Communication and Leadership, once in a way I feel good to be part of training and capacity building programme, gives me a chance to work on the subject, make it relevant and prepare. I was happy to interact with them and take their questions.

It’s a blessing to have people who are so caring and geriatric care is a special call, not everyone can handle this type of care. I am grateful to my sister in law who is supportive and takes responsibility along with our family.
There is so much happening all around me, and I am feeling so overwhelmed wanting to do everything at the same time J today I decided to list out so that I remember all that I want to accomplish. My daughter is getting ready for the Intermediate board exam scheduled from 28 of this month and I am completing all that is entrusted to me at my work place.
I am happy to join in spreading light and peace, here’s my post on a dynamic lady who dared to choose and path less travelled. https://livealifeofgratitude.blogspot.in/2018/02/saalumarada-thimmakka.html
