And a year passes by…

And a year passes by…just like that!

Sometime last year, around this time, it was a new beginning. It was a time, after much thought; the wheels were set to roll.
Like the almost negligible crunching of pebbles that is heard on the grounds when a cart starts to move,
the words were scarce and the ideas shallow and scattered, least to be noticed.
Gradually, just like the cart speeding across the road, crushing the bigger stones,
burying them further deep inside the earth,
more concrete ideas were born from hurling behind the fears of failure,
burying them in sands of time,
walking the route walked by many, the same roads, the same land.
Learning. Improving.

And a year passes by…just like that!

A sea of acquaintanceship, leading where, no one knows.
So many people met, so many more forgotten and yet many not yet known.
New friends, equally passionate about walking the same road with you,
maybe not hand-in-hand, but word-by-word, are kept clutched to the heart.
Some others perceived as more, chose to walk away.
Yet, learning, growing by conquering boulders in the path that once made you to stop, divulge, quit
are no longer boulders, but a part of what is the sands of time.

And a year passes by…just like that!

Living through everything you face and feel and transforming them into words, is not an easy task.
But you also have learnt what wonders a pinch of inspiration and a bounty of love can do!
Nothing is as hard, nothing as difficult as taking that first step when you began.
But nothing gets as wonderful once you’ve begun.
Period of troubles will leave; what made you live through that period, will live.
Times will test, but sticking by what you desire is all that makes the difference.

And this is just a bit from the pot of gains that you’ve treasured because although a year has passed by,
it has left behind marks.
It only reminds of all the good times that are yet to come and so will follow
more love, more happiness and more worded treasures.

Sometime around the end of the month of July, I, as a blogger, turned a year old. Unfortunately, I do not remember the precise date to celebrate it. So I thought it better to do a random post this month.

This is a dedication post to all those bloggers out there who have helped me make it big.

  2. Hi Asha,

    Happy Birthday or would you prefer if I call it happy anniversary!

    What jumped out at me were these lines of yours.
    “Nothing is as hard, nothing as difficult as taking that first step when you began.
    But nothing gets as wonderful once you’ve begun.”

    To me the essence of all change is encapsulated here. So, as you have gone through this year, taken that first step and then one more and one more. What change did you witness? Change without and within?

    Loved your post and so felt like commenting.

  4. Blogging and sharing the blogosphere is a learning curve for all of us it shapes the way that we think, how we communicate through our postings, it offers a wide array of happiness and within these elements there is an opportunity to forge new friendships.

    The power of the Internet is a marvellous tool that offers a vehicle in which to grow, to develop our thoughts and to add a glow of optimism throughout this fine environment. Your year has come round rather quickly but the journey has just begun, there is so much more to add and to enjoy. Have a very sweet Friday my friend 🙂
