Counting Blessings!

I have been contemplating a bit over the weekend. And I find that there has been this huge change in me. I have been so positive lately and that I have so much to thank god for.  So I decided that I will take a stock every month at the end and list out all the blessings that god has bestowed on me so that when (not if 😦 ) I get depressed about something or brood ( As I do a lot) I will read these posts and remember that I have been quite luckier than the most  ..

These little joys in life that keeps me upbeat and keeps me going.. I hope I never ever forget to take them while I can!

β—Š I have been lucky to have Β busy weekends filled with activities that make me feel wonderful!

β—Š I have had by far most ambient relationship with my sister. We actually talked on phone and joked with each other ( Our first as I can remember)

β—Š Dad has been in good health by and large and he even offered to make coffee. ( he hasn’t in years now)

β—Š Rains. Such amazing climate. I have nothing much more to add. That one word encompasses a lot of emotions.

β—Š Finally started volunteering and it is such a joy for me. It makes me feel more purposeful!

β—Š And friends in office. We tease. We talk. We help each other. The bonding though superficial in many levels is still something I lacked for a long time and am grateful to have it in my life. Possibly its coz am in day shift.. but what the hell!

β—Š My credit card bill has been, after a very long time , below 2000 πŸ˜€

β—Š And I saved money! Oh yeah and quite a hefty sum!! yay!! The savings is in 5 figures and its of just this month

β—Š 12 new books! Whoosh! And countless Ebooks πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ more the merrier πŸ˜€ [ Have already read 2]

β—Š The book club that we started this month. The first meet this weekend. Hoping it would grow and grow all the time!

β—ŠFriends. It just hit me really today morning that I am so blessed with wonderful friends. Friends who seem to handle my moodiness, my temper tantrums and yet seem to find me a wonderful friend to be with. Both online and offline.

I am just feeling amazing!!

As an aside, we are going to have a guest post. hopefully that person would become a regular contributor and not like the other friend of mine πŸ™‚
