"Nothing builds self-esteem and self-confidence like accomplishment." ~ Thomas Carlyle
With great pride, relief and little sadness, am saying that today is the last day of my month-long NaBloPoMo journey. I never did this before in my 5 years of blogging - hitting the Publish button diligently every single day. Indeed it was a beautiful challenge which needs a lot of dedication, effort and creativity (to come up with new posts) on one's part. It isn't for the faint heart which I would love to take it up again in future. :-)
Being honest, I never thought that I would pull it off considering how tumultuous our lives were because of dad's accident. I was looking for a good distraction, an outlet where I can take my mind off from happenings around me. Indeed, it worked!. Yay!
