  1. Quite a lovely way to take on the challenges that life throws at us and turn them into learning experiences.

    I used to write my Gratitude list but have stopped doing that. I do try to count my blessings every so often, and especially when situations seem very negative.

    1. I completely get it when you say “counting our blessings when the going gets tough” because i guess that’s when we really ponder deeply. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts here. I am hoping i will continue with the gratitude list…let’s see how it goes.

    1. Thank you so much Prerna. Things always happen for a reason is my strong belief. It will give us happiness or it will end up teaching us an important lesson. Either way it happens for our good. And showing gratitude helps us understand that in a better way 😊❤️

  5. Life in city, working in corporate and living in the apartments, it has become so mechanical. We just go through the motion, distracted and apparently busy in what we do and even don’t find that little time to observe and cherish the little things around us that matters so much us to. The nature that matters and that nurturing of our soul, but we fight for peace and harmony in city life and we run away from nature…the irony.

    Gratitude is such an important word and carries so much weight when delivered with compassion and we need to know the intrinsic power of this word if truly expressed…it creates magic. The return that comes back in term of blessing and goodwill simply immeasurable. You have done a wonderful thing of finding that space for harmony and bliss in the glory of nature…we all would love to move and stay in such farmhouse but all are not lucky.

    It was such a delight reading through you experience and I must say the choice of such subtle words and the simplicity in your articulation makes it profound.

      1. All our good deeds and our positive thinking leads us to such abode of peace and bliss in life. Nothing can be better to nurture our nature then being with the nature. Life’s beauty is in these little things and we unknowingly ignore and hunt for the big things and in the process get trapped in the wrong frame of life.
        Kalpana, I really enjoyed landing in your place and experiencing the beauty and bounty nestled in your profound thoughts and so deftly articulating those ideas…

      2. I am so glad to have connected with a fellow blogger who shares the same philosophy in life as me. Yes, its ultimately the simple pleasures in life…things that money can’t buy…that provide immense happiness. The sooner we realize it, the better we can utilize our time seeking what’s important and what nourishes our soul. Great to read you comment. Glad you stopped by and shared your thoughts here.

      3. We are so much wrapped in the mold of money, everything we do and we see has a bias towards money. It is needed and we cannot do without it but when we get bonded and when our greed crosses our need, we are haplessly trapped and there is an illusion and we cannot get a clear view.
        If we think deep, the reflection and we realize the inner worth of ours and the value of nature that we keep running away, we can then be back on track and we need to be compassionate, generous and humble than money becomes insignificant in front of rest other things in life…money is merely an exchange mechanism beyond this it has not standing…
        Pleasure having such lovely conversation with you.

  6. Congratulations on your farmhouse. Nature acts as a healer. When we are close to nature we get happiness in so many beautiful things happening everyday – a new plant sprouting, a flower taking a beautiful shape, birds chirping. The list is endless.

    1. Yes. I believe in that too Aparna. And so I just let it be…let people be who they are…And try to be who I am. And thank for your complement and wishes. It sure was a lot of hardwork but the satisfaction you get is immeasurable. Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with me.

  7. Congratulations Kalpana for achieving your dream! A farm house on the outskirts of Ahmedabad with a small vegetable garden is my dream too! Hope you stayed in Mumbai or nearby, would have loved to drop by to see your beautiful vegetable patch! There are all sorts of people in this world – people who are jealous and who have not accepted that some people will be more successful than others usually go for pulling down others – let them be. You can’t do much about them. But i am sure there are several people who are genuinely happy for your success, rejoice with them.
