I am sorry :(

I am very sorry to inform you, that due to somethings, I am going to have to discontinue the A-Z challenge. 😦

I have had sooo much fun in the past 9 days, visiting, reading, talking and getting to know some mind blowing bloggers. But it seems like life currently has different plans for me…

I absolutely adore the idea of discovering and featuring bloggers, so I will surely be doing that whenever I can. 🙂

I am grateful to Gary [  https://gapawa.com/  ]  for introducing this challenge to me. I made some really amazing friends through it…♥ 

.LOVE ♥.

DAY 8: ‘Holly and flora’

Gardening, Cocktails, DIY’S and Food… best combo ever!

This blog is run by an amazing woman named Jayme Henderson. She is unlike any blogger that I have featured. I only write about things, people, blogs that inspire me and Jayme inspires me. If you are wondering why, then here is your answer. She has soo much passion. She started this blog in 2012 and since then she has been posting atleast once a week. Now that is dedication! Her blog makes me happy, because she does what she loves and she shares that joy with the rest of the world.

Visit her blog to see amazing photography ( she is a self taught photographer. I honestly would have never known if she didn’t mention it, she is really good !), awesome DIY’S, gardening, and most importantly Cocktails 🙂 (there are millions of recipes..and I am not even kidding ! )

DAY 7: ‘Gapawa’

I think you saw this one coming, Gary 🙂

Now, where do I begin to describe this wonderful soul. Firstly, his name is Gary Warmerdam. His writing style is extremely fluid, you just cannot get enough ! He is amazing at photography, poetry, feel good writing…. he has got it all.

I have read every single post he has ever written and can I just say one thing, in all my life never have I been soo happy while looking at a laptop screen. Gary, has the most amazing story, HIS story, captured in his blog. I am soo glad I found your blog. I really mean it.

His honest, unapologetic and extremely inspiring writing is addictive. He is soooo good at what he does, that while reading some of his posts I feel like I am literally there. Also, he was the first blogger to ever notice my work. Let me tell you, Gary is a well established blogger and still, he was willing to read a neophyte’s (me!) blog. How amazing is he !

He also has the most beautiful wife, Kim and a precious son, Jaxon (otherwise known as GRUMPY CITY). He sometimes posts their pictures and they are really amazing.

I can go on and on, but to conclude I just want to say that you need to read his blog, right now. It will the most amazing decision of your life. He writes about the problems we constantly encounter. He has genuinely taught me a lot of things ; about blogging, life, family.. merely through his writing.

He taught me that life is like a piece of clay, you can shape it the way you want. It’s never too late, if you want, you can achieve anything.

Come home to yourself, with YOGA

IF YOU READ ONLY ONE ARTICLE ABOUT YOGA, READ THIS ONE.

Yoga is my most favorite thing in the world, but calling it a thing is wrong; it’s more like an experience. It is an experience of love, gratitude, awareness, joy… the list is endless. A year ago if you would have asked me to try yoga, I would have laughed and said, “Yoga is not for me, I don’t have the discipline or flexibility!” but after the moment of closure in the past month, I came to the startling realization, that yoga is barely physical, it’s all about how you feel. Having things on your mind during your practice is not a bad thing, yoga teaches you to embrace them, fear, anger, everything. Embrace; this means to take it as a blessing, as an opportunity to grow. To learn love from hate, kindness from jealousy, peace from anger… and to let go of everything that does not serve you 🙂

Yoga is the ultimate teacher. I started yoga as a way to escape my feelings, but in turn it taught me acceptance. I am still learning, I believe that you can never fully learn yoga. Every day on the mat is different, the feelings, your state of mind, it keeps shifting; growing. Every moment on the mat is a blessing, it is a strong way of imparting self love.

Yoga feels like home to me, it gives me sense of self. I understand that I am saying the same things in different ways but that’s just because I love it soo much and ‘defining is limiting’ and yoga has absolutely no limits. When you feel like it, give yoga a try. It will change your life. Remember, its okay if you cannot touch your toes or bend a certain way, because yoga is not about that, it is about what you learn and experience on your way down (I read this line on pinterest 🙂 ).

If you want to start off, I would suggest https://www.youtube.com/user/yogawithadriene Her name is Adriene and she is out of this world, amazing. I love her.

This is her blog:  http://yogawithadriene.com/

I could go on and on about yoga and Adriene (of course!) but this post has to end sometime 😉 So, LOVE LIFE, LET PEACE&LIGHT BE YOURS FOREVER :*

.LOVE ♥.

DAY 6: ‘Firespirit’

OK, I am feeling soo ecstatic right now !!.. I found a blogger who not only belongs to India, but is also from Kerala !! Could it BEEE any cooler (Chandler referrence 😉 )

PS- I am a South Indian ( from Kerala ) too! 🙂

Now, about the blog, Firespirit is the creation of the most amazing soul, Elaine (I am not sure if this is her name..sorry 😦 ) She loves books and her vision is to spread happiness in every way she can, and I have to say, she a 100% makes me happy ! Her writing is honest, and it is extremely relaxing. Another amazing thing about her is that she puts A LOT of effort into her posts; her content is fresh and she also adds beautiful pictures (hand picked by here, through hours of internet surfing.) with them. Double treat !

I also find her writing, extremely empowering and inspirational. I love her work and I am sure you would too.
