Lots to Write

Lots to Write.....

But

Lost to Write....

I dont know why logging into my blog and writing does not attract me anymore. Is it because I have become lazy or finding it tired with all the work around or simply started to be indifferent towards my blog. 

When I was at peak in posting on my blog; I used to wonder at few of my fellow bloggers who went from infrequent to not writing mode. How could they do that? Now, here I am. 

Whenever I want to write something; a thought strikes. Hundreds are writing about this and thousand others already know; so why should I be writing about the same stuff again? Want to share anecdotes but not getting that motivation. Then again; from whom or from where should I be getting motivation from? Why cant I find it within myself the way I used to couple of years ago. 

I need to change man! for sure. Change in my way of thinking and my behavior towards this blog. Writing has always de-stressed me; so I dont fathom why I am not making use of this anymore. Hereon; I will make sure I will write something once in a week at the least; even if it means just scribbling. 

These days; I have done lot of traveling. October I spent a week in the country of Brunei. Brunei! I know! of all the places. But my close friend lives there and so I just grabbed the opportunity of visiting a country I wouldnt visit otherwise. The experience was different. 

Then in 2nd week of November spent 6 days visiting Jaipur, Ajmer, Udaipur and around. Wow! I want more! The places, the people..phew! Now; in December; I am going to spent 3 weeks traveling around mainland Malaysia and Indonesia :-D 

J? Hmm.. 

Travel is one thing that keeps me sane; with all the pressure at work. And yeah; someone please give me a job in travel sector! I can compromise on the money I make as long as I get to travel. 

 Any which ways; in few years I am gonna quit the corporate job and take up travel as my full time task or do vacation volunteering or something of the kind. 

These are best case scenarios. In my real world, Gypsy turned 1. He has been getting lot of complements like Handsome and all that. He keeps me busy; naughty and always needs attention. Would not leave my side until I stroke his ears and caress him. Here are his birthday pics.

  4. You should write Insi..Love to read you.Interestingly you always comes up with simple,but valuable world.Make a practice of noting certain simple things around you and then do the scribbling when you are free.I value the time I spend at Gym.You know what ? Apart from the physical amusement,I love to tickle heeds then.Kind of 'my time-thinking silly'...I am sure you'll have something jovial like that..
    Hey,the one year old look indeed gorgeous..hugs,

  5. I compare blogging to drinking.If one gives up either either of the two,one gets withdrawal symptoms.
    You are back.

  9. To be honest about blogging and the will to keep off from doing blogs when you do not feel like doing -that is what I see in the post. I'm of the opinion that it is better to not pen posts rather than do something as the fashion is these days. I cannot understand this "Challenge" blogging. Sure opinions may differ but my take is not for the challenge blogs when you pen something with some alphabet every morning after a cuppa.

    Have you spoiled the fellow- I mean the handsome Gypsy?

    1. Anil,

      Yes for some reason I dont want to crib or complain. I dont want to write mundane stuffs. And at the same time blogging keeps me refreshed. Challenge blogging - oh yeah these days lots cropping up. Personally, I've kept away from challenges, contests and the likes. Never appealed to me.

      Gypsy has been spoilt by me yes. He knows very well how he can get things from me. We fight everyday and he is stubborn

  10. This is the fourth time I am trying to send a comment. The net connection broke down every time.

    You never said a word about Gypsy before! Or did you? He is so cuddly! Smother him with a kiss on my behalf.

    From the spate of comments here, you can see how we miss you in the blog world. Go on and on and on - write! You have been really trotting around, haven't you? No wonder you couldn't blog! :-)

  11. By the way tell me how you manged with Gypsy when you were out away with Velu for say a week or even be it a day?

    1. Anil,All my travels were solo; so Velu was always at home to take care of gypsy. But yeah we found a nice home. They love dogs and the dogs arent chained or kenneled. They roam around freely. So we have left gypsy a day or two for him to socialize with other dogs and inmates. For our travel in Dec; Gypsy will stay with them

      He is happy and glad to go there since he gets to play with other dogs

  12. I know what you mean...not easy to keep the motivation running all the time. I think rough patches are normal for any blogger. It will pass...keep blogging!
