Holiday Moments

( Old post : Just the name changed )


Hello friends,

Due to unavoidable circumstances, my trip was canceled and I couldn’t go on my already unplanned vacation decided at the spur of the moment.

Certain things happen and we can’t help it. Life is such!

Initially, it pinched. But then, we decided that since we were already on a break, we can continue to stay so and do everything we wanted to do on a holiday. So I made a small list of To-Do’s and having a blast since then.

Trust me, there is no greater fun than DECIDING to have fun. No greater happiness when you CHOOSE happiness.

So this is what I did in past one week – ( My clinic was off. Maids given leave and I have told everyone I know that we are on a break )

  1. FINISHED my book… Yes!!!! I finished editing and wrote the gruesome climax that was taking so much time. I am on cloud nine.
  2. Slept like a log! I had been craving for sleep since so many days, due to my hectic routine.
  3. Joined yoga that I had been planning for ages… I used to be regular at yoga practice before my second baby and then it took a backseat. Revived it again 4 days back.
  4. Met college friends.
  5. Spent time with parents.
  6. Did craft work with my younger one and take them both for yoga.
  7. Watched 4 films… yeah, actually sat and watched them on Netflix and Star Movies, which I never do.

I have 4 more tasks lined up in my list… will let you know about them once I am able to achieve them.

How have you been?

I missed all of you and this place and my books…

Please do not feel bad or sad for me, as I am having the time of my life. For me, a break is a break… which should ideally relax you, whether you are in your home or out on a trip.

It is ideally about YOU. You are not dependent on a tourist place to be happy!

Like Manik in Tangles and Ties, I never look forward to clicking the buildings and spending time site seeing on a location. I look forward to quality time with family and with myself. Which I have been doing!

Love you all…

PS : Comments should tell me how much you missed me and thrilled to have me back :))

( Please don’t write that you feel bad for me :)) Because I was really not upset beyond ONE day! )

  23. roselein mandala says:

    Obviously I missed you boo, but when you had a blast, and you did things that you haven’t done in a while y would I feel bad for you … that’s the whole idea of having a gala time… plans might have been changed but the motto of having a good time with yourself and the family is the most important one … and during all this you have finished the climax too .. great πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—… so so happy… all I wish is stay happy and stay blessed.. and come back soon ❀️❀️❀️

    1. manitavb says:

      I wish the same for you… keep smiling and stay happy!
      Yes, I had a blast and continue to do so πŸ™‚
      Lots of love to you too πŸ™‚

  24. Salriz says:

    Wow I am inspired by you even I was planning an holiday n tham it got cancelled but I didn’t think we can do so much even without going anywhere I’m surely going to try this lots of love n make sure you make most of your remaining holidays❀️

    1. manitavb says:

      Please do try this and let me know how it goes.
      This is what I try to do – I make a list of things I want to do… and then each ‘tick-mark’ gives me a sense of satisfaction of achievement… even if it is as small as ‘watching Bolt’ with my kiddo. Feels like the time was spent well :)))

      1. Salriz says:

        Hey I did try went to watch Aladdin with kids n it was good thy enjoyed it so did I you are truly an inspiration thank you so much lots of love ❀️

        1. manitavb says:

          Lots of love to you too πŸ˜€

  25. Sanjukta Chatterjee says:

    Good that you are enjoying. Call back the maids so that you don’t have to do all the chores yourself.
    About gruesome ending, is it TM? 😰
    Please keep our RUNi safe. We need their HEA as much as we need HEA of NaNan of Voot’s KYY! πŸ™
    Take care. Have a blast. Love. πŸ€—β€οΈ

    1. manitavb says:

      Yeahhhh… I got the taste of it after few days so called the maids back. Why spend the time doing chores when you are at the luxury of your own home.

      Yes, the gruesome ending is TM. I finished the book and let me tell you and everyone else who reads me that #RuNi are safe. I love them too much to separate or harm them. Secondly, I somehow love happy endings. I don’t write to show how good I can write. I write to make me and everyone reading me feel happy and hopeful and positive.
      I get restless when my lead couple is upset.
      So yeahhh… RuNi is safe and in their happy place with a HEA :))

      Hope the book is received well!!
      Keeping fingers crossed.

  26. aartij says:

    Ur a such a happy go lucky person. I am
    So happy you did all these things instead of being upset. I really really admire you n your way of living life😍

    1. manitavb says:

      Thank you Aarti.

      I am not always like that. I have my sad days/ upset days/ angry days and tired days too…

      But after wasting time in these emotions, I feel drained and cheated.
      So, I decided not to let these emotions overwhelm me, which is not always possible. Still we can keep trying.
      We can consciously choose not to get affected by negative energy and choose to stay happy.
      I am still working on it. So, I think all of us should try to do that.

      Stay blessed πŸ™‚

  27. Prabha Returi says:

    Hi Manita! Glad to have you back. I totally agree with you on spending holidays. Holidays are fun when all of us ( family members) are free which seldom happens in the current scenario except with some cancelled plan like in your case 😁 what more we have fun in doing day to day things together be it cleaning or cooking. What more can you ask… Your purpose to relax and enjoy is served.. that too staying at home …no traffic hassles.. Way to unwind and have fun!

    1. manitavb says:

      True that Prabha!!!
      I loved the fact that I was not tired this time, did all that i wanted to do and slept so much… actually rejuvenated without packing and unpacking

  28. Heaven to hell says:

    Woohoo… That’s great… I think this break is better than any trip… Like jo hota he ach6e ke liye hota he… Enjoy your days… Missing you… And happy for you

    1. manitavb says:

      True – All that happens, does so for the good!
      Thank you and missed you too πŸ™‚

    You are absolutely correct happiness is when we spend quality time with our family. But sometimes it takes back seat during our day to day daily routine. Hope you enjoy your time to fullest.

    1. manitavb says:

      Yes, I did!
      And sometimes, happiness is in little things which we discover when we take a break and reflect in life!
      So I had that time and came back 10 days before the scheduled time πŸ™‚

    It’s just so good to see ur list that made u happy and that happiness reflects in this post too..

    Should I say I am already pumped up and excited for β€œβ€ͺFINISHED my book… Yes!!!! I finished editing and wrote the gruesome climax ‬”.. gruesome climax.. πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒ

    And when I keep thinking that we have few things in common, here it is.. another one that goes to the list β€œβ€ͺI never look forward to clicking the buildings and spending time site seeing on a location. I look forward to quality time with family and with myself.‬” thisπŸ™Œ

    And the trip I am sure there is even more exciting trip waiting for u.. ❀️

      I agree Pooja… we connect on sooooo many levels and these are just the few…

      I an actually feeling rejuvenated, without getting tired. My kids and I spent a lot of time with my parents and watched movies together.

      Yes!!! Finished Twisted Minds and I’m going to make a long post separately for *Twisted Minds = The Masquerade*, as there is so much to write.

      I’m so happy about it… and nervous too.

      Thanks for making me a part of your life. You have no idea that some of you have become a part of my life too. I keep missing those of you who are in constant touch with me and wonder how are you all!!
      Lots of love to you!

      I’m here and regular now πŸ™‚

  56. Aastha Sondarva says:

    Wowwwwwww!!! I am actually thrilled to have you back!!!!!! I really really really missed you a lot di!!!!!! Everyday used to think about you and used to read one chapter of whatever I was feeling that day. I read fire and ice again and missed all the remaining chapters!!! Especially the surprise visit on new year from Nandini one and the drama that happened before their wedding and the wedding!!!
    I was dying to tell you how much i liked the confession of Manik in tangles and ties!! I know I haven’t commented there but I loved it to the core!!! I probably hope to have such a confession from someone someday!!! Just
    looking p into the eyes peeping into the soul and whispering those words those feelings the raw emotions!!! It was really a heart warming scene and I felt all mushy mushy and fuzzy while reading it!!! Was under the feeling all day the next few days and was re reading the last few chapters!!!! But now that I think she has made a decision of not going away from him, maybe if she would have, would their relationship between would have grown stronger? I have heard that distance makes the heart grow fonder but then after a certain point it just gets frustrating and irritating. I wonder what would the case have been if she would have gone! Nevertheless I completely trust you and know that whatever you have planned is and will be amazing only!!!!
    About beyond every border, this is a very new thing that I am reading about. Refugees and army and doctors like these and everything!!! It is something I never really came across or maybe never took interest in. But now that I am reading the story, it is making me curious and wanting to know more about their lives and how these circumstances affect their life and relationships. Thank you so much for bringing this story and introducing me to a different part and perspective.
    P.s. I hope you did receive my previous mails. I had mailed them on the day you were gonna initially go on a vacation but then now break .
    P.s.s. I really hope you’ve enjoyed your break and rejuvenated yourself!!! You did so many amazing things and I am so happy you did whatever your heart wanted to!!!
    P.s s.s. I literally jumped on my bed seeing this notification!!!!! (Happy dancing)
    Love you loads
    Missed you so much
    Extremely excited to have you back

        Hey di I did check my spam box and all the mail’s too! I haven’t received any mail from you!πŸ˜” I actually wouldn’t have mentioned it here had I received a reply. I am so sorry to bother you.
        And about reading. I actually have stopped reading anything from Wattpad. I just read your books now. Nothing else interests me as much as your writing does be it anything. I actually haven’t opened Wattpad from I don’t know how long!! And well if someone writes as beautifully as you do I don’t think anyone can resist reading and enjoying!!!
        Lots of love❀❀❀

    Hi Manita,
    Glad you are having fun. You are right… We don’t need to go around the world to have fun and to find happiness. We can have fun with our loved once at home. And see… You were able to do so many things during the break.

    And I hope the book you are talking about is ‘twisted minds’. I am really very eager about the clmaix of that story.

    1. manitavb says:

      Oh yes, Mercy,
      I am talking about Twisted Minds.
      I was struggling with its climax… as mystery is not my usual genre. I write romance smoothly but with thrill and mystery, it wasn’t coming right…

      Finally, it is completed.
      One more proof read and it will be sent to the publisher.
      I’ll see how and if I can post it here…

  62. chandrasan says:

    Though I have been reading all your tweets in twitter still I missed you here where you are one step closer to me and to us.

    1. manitavb says:

      Even on Twitter, I logged in only yesterday… when doctor friends pushed me to stand with all others on the doctors’ harrassment issue. Otherwise, I was not on SNS for a week.

      1. chandrasan says:

        Ya di saw that , hope the issue is settled now. PS : staying away from SNS = spending Quality time to Yourself..

        1. manitavb says:

          So true!!
          SNS can sometimes rob away your peace of mind. So, I believe in moderation. Fix time and log off after some time πŸ™‚

Everything you did was love like spending time with family, joining yoga, some quality and good things ( completing climax of book ) with entertainment ( watching movies ) best combo ever…

    1. manitavb says:

      And I was craving to do all of the above since so long but the hectic routine made me push it to the backseat.
