Life is but myriad shades
of smiles, of laughter, of agony, of pain
what you embrace and hold on to longer
determines what you become altogether


Yes, I live with this principle in my life. My mind has long back accepted and tuned to selective screening of all that is hurtful and negative. It devotes very few moments to them and quickly navigates me to a happier zone (albeit it still takes efforts from my side).Though it is much easier said than done, it is absolutely how you condition yourself. Actually the human mind has a relatively stronger tendency to confine and trap you into the sad periods of your life and put you down terribly. Many resurface from these cycles while many end up being depressed. What I have learnt out of my own experiences is that try to get out of this sulking state as quickly as possible because unfortunately knowingly and unknowingly even the society will only add to your woes. Sometimes their compassion makes you feel worse. I understand they mean no harm and only worry about you but sometimes the impact is vice versa.

One of my friend's son had a fracture in his right hand a couple of months before the board exams and I saw her standing strong by her son’s side and the kid was fine too managing things but the people who came to see him delivered long speeches to him of how sad they are to know about this disastrous accident. Their hearts go out to him and how now his boards percentage with be affected and his career is at a stake and blah blah. This soon dampened both mom and son’s spirits.

The next week, on my morning walk, I saw this friend of mine sitting on a bench in the garden. Her eyes were bloated with tears and evidently she did not want to cry in front of her son and told me everything... it only took me minutes that morn with her and her son over the breakfast and I am glad they became their usual fighter selves soon enough. The child did fairly well in his exams and I am so proud of him.

The matter of fact is, life is always be a fierce roller coaster, you can enjoy it with a smile and adrenaline rush or can cry in fear and sulk and decide not to board it at all which often won’t be possible, so why not choose the former option. I always do that and walk out of my comfort zone several times to embrace life in its full vigour with equal zest and a smile as wide as river Nile. As a new age saying goes when life throws lemons at you make a lemonade out of it and sip it with a smile. I live my each day by it, one step at a time.

For my entire series, extraordinary slices of my ordinary life, this April in the global #AtoZChallenge, , I have tried to pen several instances to you where I have not left happiness’ side in the toughest of the tough situations and that’s perhaps the reason I am aptly Destiny’s Chosen Child. It has tested me, it has troubled me, it has even screwed me but it has also eventually made me win because I never kneeled down in front of the terrible spells it has put me with.

I thus end this series with the message to you all, my precious people,

Hold on to happiness
work hard so that it never fades
flaunt and own the zest to smile
until to this world you bid goodbye


Love You All! This place shall always wait for your wonderful footsteps fall on it over and over again and a zillion thanks for everything ♥️

Thank you so much for all the love and support you have always given me. Truly Yours Roma is nothing without you!

Almost miraculously this month passed away and this is the second last chapter of the series ~ Some Extraordinary Slices of My Ordinary Life. Thank you for all the love you showered on my writings with open heart and it was purely your warmth and encouragement that I did this for the third consecutive year, wrote straight for the entire April every single day(on weekdays for this series and on sundays for the brands I endorse😛). This years the odds were totally against me as I shifted to my new abode on 1st April and so because of the change of school, the kid too was at home for the prolonged summer vacations, of course with all his tantrums of mom play with me, I am bored etc etc...So imagine me with a home full of cartons, a nine year old and hubby dear staying on official trips for three straight weeks. On top of that my fibroid pain which pops up unannounced at regular intervals has driven be numb and useless for many hours a day for over a fortnight.

Despite of all this, I did fulfil my commitment to myself. The sole reason is I felt overwhelmingly ecstatic weaving these soulful memoirs for you. It gave me a million moments of joy to relive my life all over again in this autobiographical account. There were so many I was able to express my gratitude to and yes I do missed many. There weren’t missed by mistake, there is a reason to it, they all will be a part of my third book releasing shortly. Many of you have written to me that you were wanting to know more about S and Me, our one of its kind love story. Well again the book will have several chapters devoted to it and will answer many other questions you have asked me to write on and much much more. Hopefully with your love and kindness and with the blessings of my Almighty I will be able to do it, launch an autobiography of this tiny mortal, quite soon. The task ahead of me is humungous and I have miles to go before I sleep( in the words of Robert Frost)...sorry no more bragging, just wanted to share what’s on my mind dears.

This post of mine is also a little tribute to my most precious baby, my blog. TrulyYoursRoma.com has given me much more than I could have ever asked for. Long ago, I have made several promises to myself and this tiny home of mine on the web has silently and most lovingly helped me realise almost each of those promises. Not only that it has been my breathing space for years now, I can’t imagine a life without it. Every time I am down and out trapped in the vicious traps of life, I come to it, pour my heart out, feel relieved and get back to the usual me within moments. You dear friends and readers make it a lively place with your presence and words fail me to express my gratitude to you. Numbers don’t matter to me, your appreciation does and so does your criticism. I am one person with whom you can always share your earnest opinions with for I never get offended. Thank you for always gracing my space with your benign presence. Truly Yours Roma will forever remain indebted to you and her little blog♥️. Post penning this heartfelt note of gratitude to you, I am heading straight to Aqua-Imagica to soak the water baby in me in cool blue waters 🌊. Will come back and write to you the final memoir of this series which is eluding me as of now😊...
