BLOGGERS REFLECTIONS AWARDS


BLOGGERS REFLECTIONS AWARDS


I wanted to do this for a long time ,but caught up in the rat race of life, kept on postponing it. Then, a thought crossed my mind, am I really capable of judging people? Instead of delaying it, asking and answering my own questions, I thought of having this monthly for the members of BLOGGERS REFLECTIONS.
As I go through all kinds of feelings and experiences in my blogging journey of life -- delight, surprise, chagrin, dismay -- I hold this question as a guiding light: "What do I really need right now to be happy?" What I come to over and over again is that only qualities as vast and deep as love, connection and kindness will really make me happy in any sort of enduring way. Being here, I discovered that I cannot find peace by avoiding life. And, there is no formula for success except, perhaps, an unconditional acceptance of life and what it brings. I want my inner truth to be the main line for the choices I make about my life -- about the work that I do and how I do it, about the relationships I enter into and how I conduct them.
And believe me, I learnt it all here…..through you all, your posts, and the immense love and support you have all given me…..Each one of you is special, your blogs different. As I have always said, we are together as a family, so we need to respect each other’s feelings. Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them. I cannot believe that the purpose of life is to be "happy." I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all, to matter and to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all.
With this, I wish you all, love, luck, happiness….and always remember,no matter what age you are, or what your circumstances might be, you are special, and you still have something unique to offer. Your life, because of who you are, has meaning.
These awards are in different categories, and in random order, remember,it will happen every month. This is solely my decision, not based on my personal relationships with the bloggers.

You will all wonder, as to how I have rated this, its just not the contents, its how you interact with each other here, for me, blogging means far much more than writing.

I hope I have done justice here, and even if I haven't, better luck next time...till then God Bless You All....

  5. Wow, Alpana...thank you very much. This might be a silly question, but: since I write two blogs (Tale Spinning and BornStoryteller), which one is this dedicated to? I don't want to have any hubris to think it's for both.

    Again, thank you!!!

  7. My dearest Alpana I am so sorry that you are having a hard time figuring out life and happiness. Never should you base your happiness off that of others. Even the happiest of people want something else in their lives.Life is not easy, things happen for a reason and we must learn not why they happened but, what we can do so it doesn't happen again.Struggles are unavoidable in life. We are resilient and have the ability to pick ourselves up, dust off the hurt and carry on and excel with our lives. I wish it wasn't a bad world but, then again if it was always roses and rainbows how would we know the difference or that what we are doing is worthy? Would we take our constant happiness, luck and lives for granted because of it? I don't want you to be unhappy. It's ok to want more out of life and want never ending happiness.You have many that respect, admire, LOVE you and even though some you may never meet, it doesn't lessen how you have touched their lives. You touch my life every day and for that I am forever grateful! Thank you for the award,words cannot express the joy you have given me. Love to you always xoxo

  23. Alpana, nicely written and expressed. Your site isn't allowing me to comment so I will post here for you. You can include on your blog if you like, or not...lol........ Hi Alpana –

    I wrote a poem that you can find on my POEM page. It’s called “The Great Masterpiece”. Take a read at it when you have some free time. It’s a short little poem about inner peace, sanctity, and heart. My poem directly relates to the human mind and how it affects the heart and spirit. How a person feels and how we perceive life, is critical towards realizing happiness. For happiness to be attained, human action and thought processes must be modified as to make happiness fit in to our lives. Defense mechanisms like hypocrisy, anger, hatred, jealousy, judging, resentments; are negative perceptions that detour one’s own happiness in life. These negative feelings must be dealt with immediately or happiness will not be had in the present state. Thank you for recognizing me and God Bless. :)
