Weekly Gratitude – 12 #SoulfulSunday

Hello there! Welcome to my weekly gratitudes.

It’s been a week already. Before I begin, let me ask you – how was your week? I hope there were a few moments that made you pause and sent a prayer of gratitude to the universe. 

The week that went by was an okay, one for me. Sort of. By mid-week, I suffered from extreme exhaustion and had to slow down a great deal. Thankfully, I was able to take it easy and gradually regain my energy back. 

I didn’t write last week as I wanted to. Somehow time slipped away and I felt like I am running a losing race. But my problem is I am losing to myself. Never mind my rant. It’s not the end of the world. I will do better this week. Anyhow, I did publish a #ThursdayTreeLove post on my Void Thoughts blog after ages. Whatever little I could. Right? Being able to write or not, I think I feel a tinge of happiness when I feel guilty about not being able to write. I see hope there. Oh, my twisted mind!

I spoke to my best friend from school over the week. It was so nice, to say the least. I also caught up with another friend from my college, my namesake, leading to yet another wonderful reconnecting. So, last week definitely saw a chatty me as I spoke to a couple more people over the phone. It’s wonderful to catch up with old friends, isn’t it? I am grateful. 

Gratitude Quote

I finished reading The Notebook last week. I am not into reading romance, but this one with its beautiful writing and the tragic moments got into my good books. The more I read, the more I understand what I love to read. In a way, by reading all these books I am getting to know myself a little better. I didn’t think that was possible. Isn’t that amazing? 

I also get so much done in the course I am doing currently. Of course, there is so much more to get done.

Oh yes, I finally was able to utilize my time effectively and was able to bring some discipline to my Hulu and YouTube videos watching. I really was a good girl and watched only one episode of just, the one show. And when I watched the motivational videos, I did so while finishing up other mundane tasks. I am so proud of me, you know. I am not how long I will be able to keep up with that though. 

That’s about it. My week was a good one I would say, not without its challenges. But at the end of it, I feel fine, good even. I am looking forward to the new week. 

You have a good one!

  1. I am glad you liked the Notebook. Good conversations with old friends fill up the heart. It is so nice your heart brimmed. It tells something about a person who says good things about her days even when a few of them were extremely exhausting. I hope you have a relaxed and energetic week ahead.
    I learned a new thing from your post – Hulu. I must explore it.

  2. It’s good to take a break – to listen to your body and soul and slow down when you need to. And maybe to realize that it’s not a race at all. Just don’t forget to listen for that little nudge that says, “Time to write, now.” You can’t write if the well runs dry; sometimes, you have to take a breath and let it fill up again.

  3. I used to love reading Spark’s books – haven’t read one in quite a while. The Notebook is a classic, for sure.
    I’m sorry that you went through a low phase – it’s funny how no matter how much we try to change our perceptions, we tie our worth to productivity. Went through this myself this whole month. I’m glad that you and I can pull ourselves out of this and focus on what we are grateful for.

  4. Wow! That’s a nice update. So lovely to know that you managed to find the time to do at least a few things that made you happy. I think we often forget that gratitude makes us “see” our lives differently. It’s wonderful to see your positive approach to life even when things aren’t going your way. More power to you, Vinitha, as another week begins. May all your plans come to fruition and may this be a very productive week ahead.
    Keep that positivity going, dear!!!

  5. I used to love Nicholas Sparks’ books, though I haven’t read any in a long time. The Notebook was one of my favourites. Hope you’re feeling better now, Vini!
