Thanks for comple(men)ting me
Complement expressed in colors , Click to have a better viewI never thought I could write anything more than emails. Finding the right words to convey the expressions wasn’t easy for me for many reasons. I wrote my first post in 2006, and few other posts down the line which mainly served as means of gaining volunteers to scribe for visually challenged students in India( If you are in Chennai and wish to help, please let me know).
Each one of us has different way to handle stress and pain. Lost in self, with a break up from 12 year old relationship and living all by myself in abroad forced me to write. Only after writing this, I started believing I could actually write. Pain flowed right out of my veins to keyboard as I found my closure. Although grieving gave me a good start, it was the encouragements from you that kept me writing.
I soon realised simple and truthful words are much better than flaunting oxford dictionary posts. Be it my crush or my mom’s birthday, I told my stories straight from heart and felt the connection with you. Many of you were kind and generous enough to write me back. I am more than grateful for each word you have keyboarded here.
It’s through others we understand ourselves better, and I think that’s the bond we share as bloggers. We write our worlds, which is quite different from others. Be it work of fiction, love of motherhood, joy of travelling or musings of business, it’s amazing how we always find common grounds. A stressful day stands no chance after a read through our comment sections. We choose to understand, accept, respect and complement each other.
Complement! That's the theme of my painting, for I see nothing better to describe my 100th post. And I dedicate this to you all who complement my life in many ways
