In my previous posts, have written about my special memories from January and also featured my most precious moments of February and March. Today, I move ahead and talk about one of my favorite months in the year – April.
In my eight years of a being a Banker, I have always eagerly waited for the month of April. It meant the beginning of a new Financial year and a month with new goals and benchmarks to be set. But deep within, I also accept the fact that I have always been a little biased towards April because it happens to be my father’s birthday month. On the 1st April this year, my young man turned sixty-nine and I feel grateful that we could be around him to celebrate his special day with cakes, gifts, and some delicious food.
However, April 2018 also marked the beginning of two new chapters in my life. My then two and a half-year old started his preschool and I began my Blogchatter A2Z challenge. The former meant a month high on emotions as the toddler refused to settle down in this new phase of life. It was emotionally exhausting to see him cry his heart out as I dropped him to school every day. The latter required me to publish a post on every day of the month (except Sundays) and also read my fellow bloggers work. It was through this A2Z challenge that my blogging journey found a direction and I discovered my love for travel writing as I explored ‘A dollop of Bengal’. This was also the platform that brought me in touch with some exceptionally talented bloggers, most of whom have become friends now.
If I have to sum up my moments of April, it would be fair to call it a month full of challenges as I walked on a tightrope balancing emotion and passion.
Linking this with the Tuesday Photo Challenge on the theme Challenge this week.
In the next post, I will write on the significance of the month of May in my life. Stay tuned to read the next article that will go live on 18th Dec.
