Learnings from abstinence

All the silence never went wasted. It’s been more than two months since my last post. I almost thought I‘d give up ok-write-write for lame excuses and lesser passions. Yet I am back; for indulgence sake. Yes I am.

My first post gave me the enthusiasm to chase it with two more; soon after which life caught up with me. The hazards of a career in advertising and the subsequent effects on my personal life put my priorities in a shuffle mode.

Every other day I would console myself with promises to write soon one day. Thank God, it’s finally today. Most of the encouragement came from the few who actually took pains to read it and even respond with a word of appreciation or two.

Let me be honest and upfront. I’ve always tried to manifest blogging as a matter of narcissism and righteous self-importance. But the truth is - attention, recognition and encouragement actually make a difference. It’s still okay to be truthful. Doesn’t hurt or harm. Or does it?
