This is my 51st Blog !!!!
I feel extremely blessed and grateful for
all the love, support and encouragement
you all have showered on me.
After posting the blog on my blog site, the first question that would arise in my mind is:
What topic should I write about next?
While looking for inspiration and searching for relevant blog topics, I got exposed to the vast ocean of knowledge, available on the internet and books.
I even got a few topics as suggestions for my blogs, which helped me understand my readers’ topics of interest.
After writing each blog, I felt an increase in my confidence level which motivated me write more.
Publishing 50 blogs, made me realize –
- “The importance of the number 50.”
- The number 50 gives us a vibe of freedom – Golden Jubilee.
- The number 50 is a form of “indication”.
- The 50th celebration, may it be the 50th birthday or 50th anniversary, only indicates that the individual, in one lifespan, has experienced everything at least once.
- The number 50 has a positive vibe attached to it.
- The situations or surroundings of the person who has experienced 50 years of life, has seen many changes which have led to amazing life experiences.
- At 50, a person has known the facts of life, as he/she has travelled well and met new and different personalities of people. Thus, being exposed to new ideas, which led to new ways of looking at things.
