I have been getting on..

26 Apr

.. and getting myself into more things than I can manage. This year has been very exciting but its not all hunky dory. Everyday there is something new that life throws at me but I am not complaining. The last 3-4 months have weathered me well. Lessons have been learnt but I have been getting on. The most amazing bit that has happened in all this chaos and confusion is clarity of thought has emerged. A pristine clarity of thought which is not only such a relief but also great for bolstering my shaky confidence.

In the coming months a lot would have changed in my life and I pray to God it should be for the best.

In the meantime I have a few interesting updates to share.

1. I went to my bestie’s (Namit ) wedding in Mumbai and it was so much fun dressing up, getting henna done, ┬ádancing and meeting people. The bride looked absolutely stunning with all the elaborate jewellery and garments. If you have been following me on instagram, you’d know! If you haven’t been, here’s your chance @sliceofmylyfe

3. Attended a social media workshop for professionals conduct by the Social Media Club of Bahrain ( @SMCBahrain on twitter). Here I learnt about how important it is to project a consistent brand image throughout. The speaker, Ernesto Verdugo also emphasized on the various social media tools and tricks to use to make life easy.

5. Couple of weeks ago, I had a chance to attend a arts and crafts exhibition. It was conducted my La Creation who host series of workshops for anybody who is interested in learning crafts like quilting, painting, baking and such. In a place like Bahrain where if you are new to the island it can get quite lonely. Groups such as this are such a wonderful way to get in touch with the community whilst being creative. This exhibition was a treasure cove of hand made lovelies such dream catchers, necklaces, household decoration pieces, trinkets, quilts, paintings and what not! Here, I share with you some pictures from the event.

      Yes and no but as long as I am clear about what I want, it doesn’t matter. Thanks so much Aneela! <3

    I see Mimi is taking after her Mum, tell her that her cake looks so delicious :) It must have been a defining moment… those moments are so few in life. :)

    • Anita Menon April 26, 2014 at 9:13 pm #

      She was so excited when she came over to show us her creation. Thank you Moya. These moments are absolutely precious!

    You’ve been very busy Anita! Good to hear things are clearer in your mind and hope it turns out for the best :-) Mimi is gorgeous and talented like her mum! And I love the dream catcher.

    Mimi looks lovely in the Indian dress. Has she taken to skirts now or merely accepting the inevitable at weddings? Good luck with all the things you have taken up and advance wishes for a very happy birthday this week. What plans this time?

    • Anita Menon April 27, 2014 at 8:34 pm #

      Mimi had to accept the inevitable! She resisted a lot! Thanks La. I need all the good wishes possible. Birthday plans are Zilch because it’s a weekday.

    You’ve been up to some interesting things! I do miss attending a true blue Indian wedding, it’s been a while now.

    You know what Anita, I felt that someone as loving and generous as you would have experienced some testing times, that’s what it does to us..,makes us ‘more’. I’m glad you found some clarity. You and your daughter look beautiful in the pictures…how amazing you both are xxx
