It’s been gloomy and not so good lately. The weather has thrown tantrums all over Mumbai. The wind apparently is on a Hawaiian vacation, the rain of course is engaged in dolling up herself and will take its sweet time to finally walk down the aisle and I don’t see that happening for the next two months. The clouds are drunk, yes, I’m pretty certain, they somehow aren’t qualifying in the gentlemen’s league this time around. I struggled to get some pictures of some of the most talked about monuments here, but just backslid at every attempt. My Nikon gave up. No light, no lens, no pictures, not too complicated, right? Where was the Sun?
I got my question answered when I opened my email (now is the part where I do justice to the title). A kind soul, had kept my share of sunshine safely with him. I had the biggest, the broadest smile on my face. The Sun after all popped out, I had been nominated for the blogger Sunshine Award, it’s true and so uncanny. I had to read the mail 5 times to believe it. And guess what? I AM nominated, can I be any happier? It was so overwhelming that I shed a tear or two and me being the only soul at home at that moment, I started swearing, yep, non stop for 2 minutes, I said it all and it all made sense and so f-f-f-f-funnily good. It’s not a Booker or a Pulitzer, but for me it means nothing less.
I couldn’t help but share this amazing news with all of you. It’s not about the weather as you now understand, really, who cares what the mercury is up to? It’s about this tiny little achievement, it’s about the effort, it’s about being recognized, it’s about all the hard work, it’s about the reassurance that I’m on the right track, it’s about the boost that every one needs, my food for soul, fulfillment, filling up the void and closing the eyes and walking with unbeatable self-belief. Feels good 🙂
I really don’t know if I’ll bag this as I’m not even two months old in the blogging world, but I can’t thank God enough for sprinkling some happiness over me. My friends who are motivating me constantly. The fellow bloggers who are being so gracious in teaching me new techniques and fundamentals of blogging every day (I’ve managed to annoy some), with a smile. My bundle of joy, my daughter and my loving husband for coping up with my weirdness. Many thanks to each one of you. Wait, did it sound like an acceptance speech? Hahaha! Again, who cares? Because I believe, something’s gotta give!
A heartfelt thanks to The Tales And The Travel Of The Tin Man for the nomination.
I love you all!
