A to Z Challenge April 2016: Z for Zesty April
As we come to last day of the April A to Z challenge 2016, I am both happy and sad. I am happy because I survived the challenge and sad because the common goal that fellow bloggers and I were working towards has come to an end. However it has been an amazing journey and I have grown as a blogger as well as a person in these four weeks of the challenge.
When I signed up for the challenge, I did it in an impulse (just two days before the challenge kicked off ) and I wasn’t sure what I was going to write about and whether I was going to survive the challenge or not. The best thing that happened was that the challenge got me back to blogging. I had started this blog with an intention to document the highs and lows of my journey of parenting but had not kept up with it. The challenge gave me an opportunity to file away many of my precious moments which will be precious memories of tomorrow.
The first few posts were easy but after that I began to wonder if I had run out of all ideas and if I would be able to continue the journey at all. Thankfully the challenge empowered me to carry on as the only requirement for the challenge was to write daily. I began to write from my heart without worrying about my choice of words, structure, coherence or grammar to be perfect. As a result my fears around blogging have reduced big time.
I came across many interesting blogs that I plan to visit after the challenge. The challenge also introduced me to lovely cobloggers who through their blog posts and comments filled my day with happiness and zest.
There is a lot more that I took away from this challenge but I will reserve them for the challenge reflection post in May.
Overall, despite being a hectic challenge, I enjoyed participating in it and month of April has been zestier than ever before. Cheers.
