If you read my last post a while back, you must be wondering how I am Back! Well, I could not keep away from my baby of 4 years.
While the reasons still hold good, I thought I could limit myself to a single short post. After four years, I crave the joy of overcoming my everyday challenges and trivial annoyances.
So, after much deliberation I thought I should start “Project Avantika“! Like the habit of the heroine of my novel [365 Days of F(ib)B-ing], Avantika, I shall add a cutesy photo or inspiring quote. Then, I will add a short text about what the untold story of that photo is including gory details. Or if it is a quote, how far my reality is from the mentioned slogan. All this for 52 weeks (a whole year) straight.
After reading so many inspiring books this year, I am all excited to adopt the ‘Reframe the Context‘ techniques touted by so many authors. Basically when we distance ourselves from a negative thought or event and adopt an opposing view or optimistic perspective and recount it, we can see the silver lining. While my life is much better than most, daily annoyances do pile up and skew the most cheerful of outlooks. So, I thought why not try it? No harm in trying. 🤔
While New Year is always a good point for fresh beginnings, I am taking a leaf out of one of my favorite authors. As Laura Vanderkam puts it, a Wednesday will do just as well as Monday or Sunday. Hence, sharing my resolve on a Wednesday.
I will officially commence posts related to the project on Dec1st. Please do encourage me as you have in the past (I missed you guys!) and maybe even join me in the journey!
To new beginnings! Dasvidaniya!
