#MicroblogMondays - Callings of the Heart

I sincerely strive to keep a promise that I made with self - to live life to the fullest, to make each moment beautiful, and to always remember that YOU are the creator, designer of your own path. This blog too had started as a means to this end.

I believe, YOU matter and so I listen to my heart carefully and let it lead. And this quote from Rumi that Vidya had earlier shared on her blog describes my philosophy perfectly,

"Respond to every call that excites your spirit"



And that is why, a few months back, even when I knew that at times I would be pressed for time, I took the plunge and started The Dance Bible along with my friend and co-dancer, Deepanshu.

And just a day before, when the opportunity to co-create a work of fiction together with nine unknown bloggers came knocking at my inbox, I knew my answer would be a YES even before I hit the reply button. 

Sometimes all we need is to say 'Yes to Life', embrace it with open arms and give our best to the Universe.




Stay with me as I #CelebrateBlogging tomorrow. As part of BlogAdda's ongoing 'Game of Blogs, ten bloggers have teamed up as the #DynamicWordWeavers and are collaborating to write a novel, one chapter - one blogger - a day, over the span of three weeks. Stay tuned!

  1. I like the word "yes." Even if you don't reach the very end, finish the project, to have spent time with it is sometimes enough; it sustains you and brings you to the next great thing.
