Revival, Name Changes & New Beginnings

Hey there 🙂

If you’re new to my blog, welcome! And if you’ve been following me for a while, welcome back 🙂

It’s been over a year since I published my last blog post. It’s been a crazy year and so much has happened since then.

From completing a year at my job to going on so many crazy adventures with my bestie to two major haircuts, a LOT has happened.

So, I’m sure you must be wondering, “What’s up with her sudden appearance?”

Well, I thought it’s time to come back.

Truth be told, I’ve missed writing, a lot.

It’s been bothering me these last few months that I just abandoned this blog. So, I thought it’s time to go back to my first love: writing.

I’m sure you might be thinking that this is a shortlived return. Hopefully, it isn’t. But, let’s be honest, life is strange and weird and complex. Shit happens and, sometimes, you need to take a pause.

However, I will make an effort to post as often as possible, starting with at least two posts a month. This might not sound that great, but I’d rather start with achievable goals.

So, guys: I’m back! With a new name for the blog and a head full of ideas ❤

Hopefully, this is will be the beginning of a beautiful new journey.

I promise a full-length post soon. Stay tuned until then.

 

Loads of love & light,

Rukmani ❤

 

P.S.: How do you guys like the new name and tagline? Let me know in the comments.

P.P.S: I’m currently obsessed with breathin by Ariana Grande. It’s playing on loop.

Just keep breathin’ and breathin’ and breathin’ and breathin’
And oh, I gotta keep, I keep on breathin’

So, check it out, maybe?

Progress Report 2017

Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning. ~ Benjamin Franklin

3 days to go for October to end; with that, we inch closer to the end of 2017.

2017 has been a year full of ups and downs, but I can honestly say that I have seen myself grow leaps and bounds — as a person, friend, and woman — this year.

It’s needless to say that without struggle there shall never be any success. Failure is the stepping stone towards success, right?

With just two months left in the calendar year, I wanted to do a quick check on the goals I set for myself at the beginning of the year.

On January 8, 2017, I published a post where I set down 10 goals for the year. Let’s look at how much progress I’ve made.

A Hint of Wisdom #lettertoself

Dear Rukmani,

Sometimes the thing you need to get yourself into a better mindset is a little change. Welcome it, allow it to help you grow. ~Anonymous

Change, the one constant in all our lives; the one you’ve been maneuvering around for over a decade.

So much has changed hasn’t it?

Life. Work. Friends. You.

A long and tiring journey; but, one that’s been so worth it.

Over the last 1.5 years, you’ve loved, lost, discovered, forgotten and experienced a multitude of wonderful and horrific things.

You could say that life has taken a complete 360 degree shift altogether.

And through those moments, good and bad, you’ve had so many epiphanies.

The Big “May” Update

Hey, Guys!

How are you all doing? I haven’t published a post in quite a while; 3 plus weeks to be precise. I have been giving myself grief for not being punctual with my posts. I’m sorry for not following up with my posts. But, there’s a lot of exciting news from my end 😀

Today, I’m going to list out the major events that took place this past month. As the days (and weeks) go by, I’ll publish more in-depth posts regarding each piece of awesomeness that has happened and will continue to happen.

Without much ado, here are the most exciting things that happened in May 2017.

Survive

It’s half past seven,

As light seeps in to the room,

Rays of sunshine enter,

Through lace rimmed curtains.

————————————————

This sudden intrusion,

Makes her stir in her sleep,

A second later,

She turns her body,

First to the left,

Then to the right,

As consciousness,

Waits on standby,

For the right moment,

To seize her mind.

————————————————
