What? Isn’t that what we all are/become at some point? Blindly follow a monotonous routine, sometimes with no further goal in life than to rise from the bed, go to work, come back home, eat and crash everyday.
Sometimes a little change in this routine is highly welcome. That is what I was attempting to do by taking up the A-Z challenge. I can’t believe I even managed to complete it!! (Let me pinch myself, wait!)
Instead of simply doing regular posts, which I kept on procrastinating for one reason or the other, this challenge snapped me out of being a zombie when it came to my blog. This pushed me to my limits, and trust me I am NOT someone who likes to write because I just have to. I write because I want to, but then I realised the ‘want’ wasn’t happening as often as I’d like. So desperate times, drastic measures (yeah I invented that, don’t ask more).
As a result though, the blog suddenly came alive. I don’t remember the last time I have posted so many entries back to back. However I am aware that I didn’t stick to any specific theme this time. These were just random words/thoughts associated with the respective spelling and I simply made a post out of it.
Maybe whenever I attempt this challenge next time, I can be more creative and select a theme while at it. This challenge was supposed to be over in April 2019, but here we are 10 days into May! Oh well, the end result is what matters, not so much the timeline. Or that’s what I am telling myself.
So the whole idea of rousing myself out of zombie-mode, gave me an opportunity to be zippy, zappy and zany (how’s that for Zs I tell you! now go check the meaning of the words in the dictionary, I ain’t telling you). Which is the whole point, isn’t it? Going monotonously straight doesn’t help, sometimes let’s go zig-zag (see, I am doing it again… clearly I am taking letter Z seriously)!
Jokes apart, I’d like to thank all of you for being part of this journey and reading my posts, be it sporadically or all the way till the end. As always, I hope to keep the blog reasonably alive.
On that note, time to catch Zzzzs (ok I’ll stop before you beat me up)! Bye, folks! 😀
