Let the good times roll

It started raining in Singapore, quite regularly. Its awesome sight to watch the greenary around drenched in rain( the above picture is taken several months back). I now understand how beautiful a writer's life is. I stick numerous post-it notes on my mind (while bathing, eating, even while peeing or sleeping) to write like 5 paragraph post twice a week. I even type and save them, if I were in front of the computer, knowing fully that I may not use them in any post. Most of these notes are discarded on the second read. Sometimes they give birth to new ones and sometimes when I finally finish writing the post; it would be about something else :)

Yet writing is fun, it makes us look around for an inspiration to write. Once we start writing our life would never be the same. I can bet a million dollar on this. Be it chat with a friend over the coffee or a normal day at work, we would start seeing them in new light. It gets only better and interesting as the days pass by.

We write our life, affirm and define ourselves through it. Even our deepest, long held sorrows find their way out of us through our words. A perfect self healing therapy! However, there is a need to watch what we evangelise about. The recipe of feel good writing is enthusiasm, creativity and a pinch of optimism. And guess what? by the law of attraction it only gets multiplied.

I remember reading in AJCL’s post, that she created the blog so she can capture the heavenly moments of motherhood. Imagine how happy and proud her son would be, when he reads passages and passages of unconditional love and nourishing care his mother had showered on him.

I read my posts from time to time and relive the memories with its finest details. My website is like a treasure chest for me. And I look forward to each happening in my life big or small to put in that, like a child that collects from sea shell to anything that glitters.

I have planned and waited for one such occasion, so much that I have visualised several times on my mind to see how it would feel to go through it. Now that I am about to enjoy it, I am still pinching myself to make sure I am not dreaming .Tomorrow evening I am taking the much awaited, trip-of-my-lifetime to Europe. I would be visiting Netherlands, Paris and probably Italy in the coming week.

I welcome this holiday with wide open arms and I am grateful for every second of it. I am sure this trip would be full of fine dining (with wine of course!), breathtaking sights and happy moments. So, I am leaving you all in peace for a week =) and I promise to bring back interesting stories to post. Ok, bags are packed (and repacked few more times: P), camera is charged and ticket is ready! Europe here I come!

The world is just awesome, more so when we write about it! :)

Have a wonderful trip to Europe! :D Traveling is so much fun.

And I cannot agree with you more about the need to write. I too think of many things to write about and wonder if my head is going to explode. I am a little cautious about putting my personal life on the internet and that is the main driving reason for me not to write all that I think and am excited or perhaps even sad about!
After all, some mystery about me should linger! :D

Take loads of pictures and keep maintaining the healthy attitude that you richly possess! :D

Have a great trip! and am honoured at your post of the week:)

and yes, being able to write about everything under the sun multiplies the enjoyment of life's good stuff and our resilience to the challenging stuff!
jehan said…
there are moments too that we want to capture forever in our hearts and minds or with our camera but just couldn't take a picture of at the very moment... so i end up writing about them too in my diary and keep on reading about them afterwards...

you definitely had a memorable trip, inspite of the lost luggage...

it was nice catching up with you here...
