#Reflections on my first #AtoZChallenge 2017
Welcome to my Reflections Post for the 2017 #AtoZ Challenge!
Can I start with saying… YESSSS!!! I DID IT!
I survived a challenge that had me clueless and excited going in, clueless & overwhelmed almost through-out and awed right at the end!
This was like the thunder which shook
the very foundations of who I thought I am!
What I have truly appreciated in the 30 days of April and especially in the 8 days since, is the lessons I learnt and the acquaintance I have made with myself!
This beautiful tattoo of some un-known peep on internet-land, sums up how I feel completely –
A humbled warrior!
My theme for this challenge was the A to Z of Healing – A Healing tool with each of the alphabet, and a short note about my experience with it.
Thanks to the Blogchatter folks, I am expanding on my posts, and shall be offering my e-book soon!
I created a post for each letter of the alphabet! And I created the poster image which went with it.
Being a first timer with any sort of a blogging challenge, I wrote the day of the post, and did as best as my crazy schedule allowed. Definitely, not the smartest approach!
I found MANY ( & I am sure there are many more, which I have yet to visit & discover) fabulous writers, bloggers and themes.
While I read and commented and shared on as many as I could, I missed on so many, that I miss them!
I intend to visit and read my way to all the blogs which caught my fancy in the next couple of weeks (and months)!
Note to Self –
Excitement always comes in pairs!
PLAN & PERSEVERE!
My writing, my subject & my images – all got a mixed bag of reviews – for a newbie (my blog came ALIVE on 13th February 2017), this was the BESTEST thing – I have had the minutest of things commented on, compliments from people I hold in high esteem, and questions which made my heart sing with joy! My non-blogging, non-reading friends even dropped in – that was so exciting too!
It has been a wonderful experience to introduce some lesser known Healing tools, and humbling to share my own experiences as a Healer, who got into the Ways of the Esoteric in her teenage years! Almost, felt full circle in some ways for this novice.
And as if this wasn’t enough, I did another AtoZ challenge right alongside! Yes, offcourse, roll your eyes right along with mine!
I dabbled in dark poetry on my blogspot blog, an amateur attempt at play of words which were dark and hopefully, disturbing! I have always, ALWAYS loved wordplay and the visual imagery they bring forth!
I hope to share these in an e-book form too with you all soon here.
Thank you to everyone who visited, commented here on the blog, on message & in person, and shared, and kept me going – your words of encouragement were & are THE WIND BENEATH MY WINGS!
I hope you will continue to be my friend through the next many blogging years.
I am so grateful and proud to be able to declare… I am a SURVIVOR of the AtoZ 2017 Challenge!
Thank you for being a part of my journey through A to Z.
Hands folded, bows in gratitude,
