October Month Of Gratitude, Celebrations, And Accomplishments – #GratitudeCircleBlogHop

“So much has been given to me; I have no time to ponder over that which has been denied.

— Helen Keller

Really I feel overwhelmed when my blogger friends appreciate me for being grateful to all little things that make me happy. Thanks to Vidya, for introducing gratitude into my life. Here goes my October ’18 gratitude list …

October Month Of Gratitude, Celebrations, And Accomplishments

Personal Life

After some long time, we two enjoyed as couples watching CCV – Tamil movie on theatre. Later our teen also went for that movie alone for the first time. As a mom, I felt proud of his choices and decisions. Celebrated my mom’s birthday. Also celebrated Saraswathi Pooja.

Day 4 – #themindfulbreak : Colors Of Life – Red . . . The color RED represents energy, power and action. It lifts the emotions and motivates us. . . . It signifies leadership qualities, promoting ambition and determination. . . . Also red is also considered to be danger, anger, revenge sexy, stimulates lust and moods. . . For me red is divine, red is women power, red is pride, red is life. . . . And these are Saraswathy Pooja celebrations at our house today ….. . . .

Blogging And Freelancing

Got featured in Geethica’s blog on my mom’s birthday. And had a nice time doing the #themindfulbreak challenge hosted by Shinjini and Blogchatter. This year, I chose “Colors Of Life” as my theme. It got a good engagement rate on my Insta profile. Also took part in “Double Down Your DMs”, an insta story challenge hosted by Alex Beadon. My joy was doubled when last month’s gratitude post was selected as Topmost Post and Featured Post by IndiBlogger. Attended a Pinterest Beginner’s ECourse by Neha Gupta. Also started planning smartly for 2019 with Plan Smart Blog Well Planner.

  1. Looks like a beautiful October. I loved your red saree and that jewelery. Good to know you spent some alone with V. 🙂
    Keep going on your journey, Vasantha. That’s the most important thing to do.

  2. I love your home town treats. Are you going to feature Mysore Paak ( I know you don’t live in Mysore ;). And I’m glad you saw a movie with your better half. My attempt at doing so turned out to be a major disaster with both of us walking out at the interval. Luckily the dinner afterwords didn’t disappoint.
    Your November must have been crazy busy with Diwali coming right in the beginning….Look forward to your November post busy bee.

  3. Ah that saree rocks Vasantha; what gorgeous colours! I bet you looked amazing in it!

    Kudos on all of your blogging milestones – you have been quite the busy bee! I hope this hard work pays of rich rewards.

    Wishing you a joyful and abundant November!
