POSITIVE PROVOCATIONS is 6!!! Woohoo!
As I headed out for my power walk this morning, it suddenly dawned on me “SIX Years! Its been six years. I have been blogging for so long. wow!” Then the mind completely on autopilot goes to where it all began.
My little girl had just turned two and was a joyous handful(she’s 8 now and still is!). I was slowly getting back to work finding the balancing act of work and home very overwhelming…when a dear friend suggested starting a blog. “But why?” I asked her. And she immediately responded “The world needs what only YOU have.” This friend was a blogger/writer/corporate diva. I had counseled her out of a sticky emotional situation and thought she is just flattering me. Six years back blogging was next to invisible in India and was just kind of picking up in some other countries. I took it on as a silly experiment. I thoughts to myself, “Alright so I will start a blog. Whats the worst that can happen? Noone will read it…but then hey I already expect that.”
Ha! The jokes on me now 🙂 Cause not only did I get a good response to the actual writing(which I never thought I had IN me) I was growing spiritually and learning so much in the process of it all.
Celebrating Calm, Exhaling Love and SO Grateful for SIX Amazing Blog Years
The one thing I heard all my life from all those near and dear to me…”You are SO patient.” While I might have developed patience in the experiences of life, by no means was I of calm mind.
Starting this blog, writing every line in every blog post here, every interaction, each and every soul connection, every tweet, retweet, comment, like, share, email and above all the love that overflowed my heart over these past six years have instilled in me a Calm. A calm that comes when right in between that oh so deep meditative state.
So you see, in all its reality, I am Inhaling and celebrating Calm and Exhaling love because this blog made it possible. YOUR presence made it possible. I am constantly amazed and mesmerized by the love I feel in this blogging art form.
My Simple Mission
My mission with this blog and with my life in general is to “To ease human suffering through Positivity, Love and Happiness“. I want to be remembered as a person who shed light & made a positive impact on the lives of others. This might well be my legacy.
ONLINE COUNSELING: Over the past few months I have also relaunched my Online Counseling service. I offer online counseling by skype, chat and email. If I could help you heal and become more positive…it would be my honor and privilege. This is my passion, my purpose and my calling afterall 🙂
As I head into another year of blogging/helping/healing … and exhaling love, I feel nostalgic. I love how I was so excited when I started this little experiment and now I am happy and excited that this experiment is my purpose, my calling. I always saw myself having a private healing practice. But I had no idea this blog would make it a world WIDE Private healing practice. We create our very own limits. My choice was to flow with life and not limit myself and that created limitless possibilities for me.
Love & Gratitude
I thank my Diva Blogger friend for nudging me into this gorgeous art form. I know she isn’t blogging anymore cause she is knee deep in diapers and baby cuteness, but you know who you are and I am forever grateful.
I would like to take this opportunity to also thank YOU the reader for making me feel oh so special these four years. I will continue to be ever grateful to every soul that lands on this Positive Little Heaven.
This post also marks 400+ articles/posts on Positive Provocations! Yippee! A Positive Provocations workbook is being created in the background too. So much more to come… 🙂
Dearest Reader, If you were in front of me, you would see me *bowing* in eternal gratitude to you. But since you cant see it…I hope you can feel my eternal gratitude and love for you with this *BOW*…..to many more positive healing words and countless healed hearts.
