As I approach the exciting 'middle-age' of my life (My birthday is next month. Now would be a great time to send that million-dollar cheque.), I am tempted to reflect back on my past and delve into a bit of introspection too.And inspired by this post, I decided to jot down a list of 35 things I've learnt in the 35 years of my crazy awesome existence.
How does it feel to start something only to leave it midway just because you were unable to keep up with the commitment and work it involved?
Guilty, and of course, a sense of incompleteness. That's exactly how I felt about ignoring my blog for the past few months as I pursued new interests and opportunities.
One year of leaving what I considered my second home (hotel industry). One year of being unemployed. One year of being penniless. One year of an impromptu decision that I hadn't given as much as a second's thought to. It could have been the worst decision I'd ever taken. But instead, thankfully, it turned out to be the best thing that I'd ever done.
Vicky stared at his reflection in the mirror. True to its character, it stared right back at him. His eyes wandered to the top of his head where the rays of the Sun streaming from the window kissed his hair, warming it in its faint glow. They lent a natural golden tinge to his luscious, curly locks. He wrapped one such twisting strand around his forefinger and pushed it back, tucking it behind his ear.
I feel like I've written to you after ages. Even checked the last time when I actually wrote something for the blog. Turns out it was back in early August. Sheesh! *Cue major guilt pangs.*
Okay, on to more interesting things.
Firstly, let's pop that champagne. I reached the milestone of 500 followers. A shoutout to Mariwritings for being my 500th reader. Humbled and honoured at the love! Shall be actively returning some of that now that my novel is nearing completion.
'Wandering Soul - Conversations with an Alien!' has wandered over to a new address in the virtual world.
