One Step Every Day

Hello, my dear lovely people,

I’m here coz I was missing all of you and this blog, and everything that makes me smile… including MaNan and my stories.
I’m missing Tangles and Ties and Manasvi-Anshuman of Beyond Every Border…
Fiction is the alternate world that gives me a chance to explore my own tangled thoughts and beliefs. It is that imperfect space that is perfectly mine πŸ™‚

I will start posting Tangles and Ties from December 1st.Β 

I am away as I needed time to make a lot of decisions in my life – make it again – Brick by brick… thread by thread… I needed time to make new strategies, implement them, execute plans and come up with new guidelines that make me shock-proof for further projects. So that I don’t suffer again.

I am not replying to messages because I have nothing much to say. I’m fine. I’m doing good. Thank you. It’s really kind of you to check on me. I will stay indebted forever. But honestly, I don’t have anything significant to tell you.
So, I’m saving time and energy – The only two things that I need right now.

I am not absent because I am sad or something… Nor I am depressed…
Those phases come and go… every few days… every few weeks… But life doesn’t stop.
I am not away to mourn my low phase or drown in self-pity… not to cope up with losses I suffered or learn from experiences… No…

I am away becauseΒ I am following the policy of ‘One Step Every Day’ — ie…Β  Do One-thing-At-One-Time’ … this is one important thing that I have learnt in this phase. Instead of shedding tears, feeling like cheated or lost, losing hope or direction, we should start working towards positive results. The brain works better when it is calm and best when it is given one task at a time. So, I’m at this approach.

I’ve observed that to achieve ‘anything’ in life —Β Let’s decide what we want to do –> let’s make a list of all that we want to achieve and we want to be >> then, make a strategy >> a good strategy evaluating all mishaps that can happen and keeping in mind every problem that can disturb it >> Calculate all that we require to make it happen and collect resources we need to achieve our goals >> set a timeline and a deadline >> Strike hard!!

Hopefully, each step taken one after the other will take us to the destination πŸ™‚

Take care,

Lots of love

{PS: Strategists, Planners, Professional Analysts, MBA graduates in my readers’ group may probably add more to my juvenile, basic thought process. I would love to hear more}

    Please first update Beyond Every Border

    1. Manita V says:

      One step at one time –
      Beyond Every Border is a long story with only 20 parts updated. It will go a long way… Tangles and Ties has almost 80 parts updated, with only few parts left to be told… So BEB will follow after T&T because I want to finish T & T… one

    Lots to learn from you. Lots of hurdles in this journey of yours as a writer… but still you have overcome them all to be where you are now is itself a big booster to all of us. Wishing you success and happiness from here on.

    1. Manita V says:

      The writer mode is right around the corner, dear Madhuri. I am winding up certain projects and making some gross changes, so taking it slow and taking one step at a time. Will start posting on Dec 1st.
      And I missed you too…

    Awww this is why i love you di…a lott !! Do you even know that you are a guardian angel in my life ?? Then know this that you are my mood setter and a way through which god always sends me the message which he wants me to know…I think i never told you this but i got selected in dcc bank as assistant manager…you remember our talks where i asked you whether to try for exams or join software job which i got through placement and you asked me to do what my heart feels right.. so i went through for bank exams…though it was not hard but ny lazyness resulted in me taking two years of my life for getting a job and this process i realized that i actually wish to be in this sector but unfortunately my current bank where i got selected and joined last month don’t have promotions….so i decided to go for central govt jobs and i was all set when my mind decided to play with me and i again lost interest…but i wanted to settle in a good company where i can expect promotions based on my work…but…again laziness attacked me and yesterday i wrote epfo ssa mains but when i was unable to be confident on whether i will go for next level or not i realized i an again repeating the same thing. I asked god to help me regain my path and here you are telling me what to do and how… Love you di…i will be waiting for dec and till then i decided to quit wattpad too as i will also work only for exam.. job and study right now only these two things…i wish you succeed in all you do so that we can have you back quickly….muahhhh !!! Love youuuuuu !!!

Will make to do list again and will try to make better plan this time again. Let’s see if it works. Thank-youuuuuu so much for motivating me again and again. Thank-you for writing this one step every day. I love you ❣️❣️😘😘

    So happy to know you are in a better position than before. Knew you would overcome all your troubles. Your comments are never juvenile or naive. They reflect on life’s basic truths, which sometimes are harsh. Your comments motivate to take the right step, they give hope that however things might be bad, it will get better. πŸ‘
    Grinning like a fool to know that T& T and BEB will be coming back from next month! πŸ˜ƒπŸ’ƒ
    Take care. Love. ❀️

    Hey Manita! so happy to read your message! Glad to see that you are in a positive space now! Absolutely agree on taking one day at a time/ moving one step at a time! This helps a lot in moving forward, moving on and moving ahead!

    Its been little over a year that I got to know you and your stories from Wattpad! I was so awestruck about everything about your writing skills, personality! Around this time last year was the first time I saw how strong you were, when one of your stories got plagiarized! Even though I felt very enraged about the situation, I was so inspired on how you handled it! And I am so glad that I stumbled upon your stories!

    Hope to see you soon more stronger and happier!
    Best
