My New Beginnings

New Beginnings“Keep on beginning and failing. Each time you fail, start all over gain, and you will grow stronger until you have accomplished a purpose – not the one you began with perhaps, but one you’ll be glad to remember.”
–Anne Sullivan

There is a certain charm to starting something new and fresh. The feel is great and the suspense of how its all going to turn out keeps you hooked. Thats exactly how i feel right now about my life and about my blog.

A few weeks back I was discussing how important it was to grab opportunities that come your way.  In so doing an opportunity of sorts knocked my door, and I held on to it, which has made me successfully relocate to Hyderabad from Pune. There were a few bumps in the relocation process, but not as many as i had expected. Even the bumps that came on, had a short oh very short life span. I honestly expected the move to be highly strenuous and tiring, but it was only mildly any of that. My darling hubby made it as smooth as he could, and surprisingly my little one didn’t trouble as much. I thought it would be very long and very tiring, but it wasn’t.  Infact it was exciting in most parts.

Its now a week since we have moved into our new home and It feels great. Its a new home, but in a sense it feels like I have lived here forever. It took me just 2 days to get the house up and running i.e. kitchen, beds, bathrooms. The finer details took another 2 days. Only 2 more boxes and the unpacking will be totally complete. Yippee!!

I missed blogging so much in the past couple of weeks. I had no time to think cause of all the work with the relocating, but I still missed it. Felt like a very big part of me was dormant somehow. I never really thought about how important to my own well being blogging had become. The love that all my blogging friends have shown to my blog while I was away reflects in the comments of the last post where i announced my relocation. I cant thank all of them enough for all their love and support.

Since this is my new home, and my very own self prescribed new beginning of sorts, I have decided to give a brand new beginning to my Blog too. So here goes:

My 8 Point Plan for the Blog and for Me:

  1. Posting schedule thrice a week. Three dedicated Topics or columns: Tuesday- Mind Matters{MIND}, Fridays- Natural Cures{BODY}, Sunday- Inspirational Quote{SOUL}; Two of these columns are already active.
  2. “Natural Cures” – Introduction of a New Weekly Column where natural cures for diseases will be given in addition to natural benefits of food and their medicinal properties.- {My naturopath mind needs to come out and share :)}
  3. Write an e-book {which has already written itself in my head since the past 2 years}
  4. Write each and every post with all my heart and soul, so that all the readers can truly truly benefit from them.
  5. Make minor tweaks in the blog design. Will need your input for this one. The design as of now is what it is cause Bunny and her hubby Thumper from Bunny Got Blog took the time to make some valuable suggestions. Thanks Bunny. Still lots of work to do on the design.
  6. Learn to be a better blogger. When I started this blog I was clueless about the intricacies of blogging, but thanks to blogging buddies like Barbara from Blogging Without A Blog and Rebecca from Writers Round About, I have been learning so much about blogging and writing.
  7. Online Counseling{free} – Promote online counseling for optimum benefits to all those who really require my professional help. Will need your help and support in spreading the word.
  8. On a more personal note – Lose some weight ;)

Phew!! Lots of work to do. But am going to enjoy every bit of it, cause this is what I love to do. Your support is imperative.

Thank you all for your continuous love and support. Means a lot to me.

  1. Glad to have you back Zeenat. You have set yourself a great challenge in your blogging, and I would be glad to help in any way.

    • Hi Steven, Am so glad to be back:) I know a challenge is what motivates me, i am hoping it will help me with my blogging as well. Thanks you for your support. I will be emailing you soon, i need your advice on a few things.

  2. Hi Zeenat,

    If you go to my Spanish blog, you’ll see how I like to format my posts. Go to “Las Tripas” and you’ll find the CSS Uunder the heading “Tema”) and plugins I use, with links to English language website.

    I just hope it can inspire you :) Email me if you need or want it

    • Hi Miguel,
      So nice of you to stir me in the right direction. I will surely check out your Tema section and the plugins. I will stay in touch by email for more info for sure. Thank you again. :)

  3. I’m glad that your move turned out to be less stressful than you thought it was going to be. Can’t believe you only have two boxes left. You’re awesome. I’m looking forward to the changes in your blog. I know it will be great. Glad to have you back.

    • Hi Jill,
      Believe me…everytime i saw the huge pile of boxes i thought of your de-cluttering times and that motivated me to get them done as fast as possible :) See how even though we are far apart, we help each other silently :) So glad to be back and see your lovely comment. Am heading over to your blog to catch up on what you have been upto int he past few weeks ;)
      Hugs to you for being U!!

  4. So good to have you back in the blogosphere, my friend! Congratulations on a smooth move and easy transition. I’m looking forward to some more of your excellent posts!

    • Hi Bunny,
      I missed you too sweetie. I was so busy packing and then unpacking…but my mind couldnt stop working, so the goals just fit right in when i started writing the first post after so long. I hope you enjoy my new postings soon.
      Please ask Thumper for some more awesome suggestions for my blog. I could use some guidance int he design department.
      xoxox..

  6. Hey Zeenat! Glad the move went well, and don’t worry, we missed you too :)

    I’m sure everything on this list will be completed soon (shouldn’t take more than 6 months at the most).

    Can’t wait to read your new posts. Welcome back!

  7. Hey, darling!!! I know what you mean about anticipating a more difficult move than it actually turned out to be. I was DREADING a 21 hour drive with two cats for weeks before it happened. And, guess what? They both slept the whole way! It was like they weren’t even there. Seriously, WHY do we look for stuff to worry about?!

    Oh, I am so looking forward to your new posts and your reassuring presence.

    Welcome back!!

    • Hi sweetie,
      I know what you mean…I kept building weird blocks in my head before the packing and relocating started….making it out to be such a huge ordeal, when infact it wasnt really that big a deal :) BUt, i had so many prayers from such wonderful friends like you, that the move couldnt have been anything but smooth :)
      So glad to be back and see you here.
      Lots of love.

  8. Welcome back Zeenat, glad the move is working out well. Your new blogging schedule sounds great and I am looking forward to following your articles. We all missed you and are happy to have you back. Let me know if I can be of any help!

  11. Hi Zeenat.
    Great to have you back and to get a clear outline on your intentions.
    And things always usually work out.
    Love wilma

    • Hi Wilma,
      So nice to see your smiley face after so long :)
      I know…we usually stress ourselves out before any big situation…and then thankfully it all almost always works out for the best. Thankfully my relocation was the same.
      Thank you for your love and support :)

  13. Hi Zeenat,
    Welcome back…it’s good to see you again!
    And so glad to hear the move went well. And I think your plan sounds great – especially the idea of writing from your heart…so, so good…

    • Hi Lance,
      So nice to be back!!! And so good to see you too after so long :)
      My plan is just a plan till i put it in action…and writing that isnt from the heart wont be as touching as it should be… Please pray I can always publish good and heart warming posts..just like you ;) I have found a good example in you to follow ;)
      Thank you for your support :)

  14. Congratulations on your new home. I love your ideas about your blog. Amazing how one move effects all others. If you would like I could interview you on my blog and we can promoate your counseling. That was my former work and I know how much it helps people grow. If you are interested let me know when you are ready to promote counseling.

    • Hi Tess,
      Glad you liked the ideas for the new beginning of sorts of “positive provocation”.
      I would love to promote the Online counseling through your blog. Do let me know how we can set up an interview. It would be so good for the readership..and for the message to reach more and more hearts as intended. I am ready to promote !!!
      Thank you so much for your support and this awesome suggestion for an interview. :)

  15. Hi Zeenat,

    Welcome back. So how do you like Hyderabad? When we lived in India, we lived in the state of Andra Pradesh so we were not that far from Hyderabad. May your new home always be filled love and light.

    And your new plan sounds awesome. Nothing is better than writing from the heart. By the way, I do a lot of spiritual counseling on the side so if I can provide any help or whatever, just let me know.

    • Hi Nadia,
      Lovely to see your smiling face after so long.
      As for Hyd.. I love it. Always have. I got married here and had my baby here…but due to hubby’s work were transferred to Pune for a couple of yrs. Now that we are back to hyd…seems like we never left.
      Where in Andhra Pradesh were you??? What fun if you could come now….we would certainly have some fun together :)
      I will be in touch about the counseling bit. Would love some suggestions.
      Thank you so much for your support:)

  16. It is so good to see you back, and my gosh, with such energy and passion! I love the plan you shared here, and am grateful to be part of it in any way I can. Your posting schedule sounds awesome, and your ideas are inspired.
    Congratulations on your new home, too! You’re right – there is definitely something amazing about starting fresh. It’s exhilarating, and I’m honored you’re sharing all of that with us. We get to live vicariously through you!
    Lots of love to you, and YAY for you being back!

    • HI My Joyful Angel,
      So lovely to see you here :) Have missed you.
      Am glad you like my plan. Hope the new posts and the new column are liked by the readers. Please do pray that this plan is a success.
      And I am honored to have such amazing support from you.
      Lots of love to you too :)

  17. It must feel wonderful to have moved and so glad to have you back. A great plan–I’m with on losing weight. Look forward to your posts.

    • HI kaushik,
      Thanks for you vote of confidence and support. I do need it :) And by and by..losing weight is going to be the most difficult part of this plan.. :( ..especially now that i have moved to Hyderabad…I do so love the hyderabadi biryani ;)

  18. YAY, you’re back! It’s good to hear you are not just settled but kicking off new goals/schedules. Even though you may not have been writing, you were really busy in your head, writing, planning. It’s great – you sound so energized and eager to get going. Fabulous! Welcome back – you were missed!

  19. Nice to see you back with a vengeance. :-) You’ve got many plans and some of them I also aspire. Still, I believe you will achieve them all. This blog of yours speak your persistent character. :-)

    • HI Walter,
      aha…i do think i am back…but not with a vengeance…;)
      We bloggers/writers have similar plans na….Its so Good that we can all support each other in attaining them. Its fun to achieve your goals when you have a great support system :)

  20. Never been to Hyderabad, but I’ve been to various places in the south and food in the south–really anywhere in India–is quite the temptress!

    • I know…and i am all dreading the tempting foods. Especially now thats its Diwali here…lots of sweets coming home from friends..hard to keep your hands off. But i am trying..Oh God I am trying ;)
      Come to Hyderabad….I am sure you will love it. Its famed to be the cleanest city in India. And after traveling to quite a few places In India..I totally agree. It is very clean.

  21. Welcome back, Z bomb. You were missed.

  22. Hi Zeenat. It’s great to have you back and I’m so happy your move went well. Looking forward to your new beginnings!
