The Happiness of Reaching a Milestone
100 Days of Happiness – Day 12
There was a time in the past when I didn’t believe writing could be therapeutic. I had felt that it was only a hobby, something I liked to do once in a while. I found poetry to be just a way to put down what I saw, and not really what I felt, or observed. But it is a blessing when there are friends who see past the words and notice what you yourself do not.
One fine November evening, when I was reconnecting with an old friend through words, he happened to mention his blog, where he wrote stuff at random. And he wrote well. He suggested I make a blog too, and I did. But for a couple of years, it continued to be just a place where I pursued an old hobby. It was that same friend who came to the rescue when my life was in a very bad phase, and told me to renew that blog and write often. I did, and haven’t looked back since.
Happiness is seeing that I’ve reached 2000 posts today, and the love for words continuing to grow. It has made me reach where I am today, and I can only imagine what lies ahead. It’s something I await with anticipation.
