Reflecting on A to Z Challenge 2016

This was my second consecutive year at the A to Z Challenge. Last year my theme was " In the memory of my late father" as he had passed away just weeks before the challenge. I was battling grief and depression and the challenge helped me in that uphill struggle a lot.

This year my theme was LIFE LESSONS.

I am still struggling with my mental health issues but one of the most remarkable weapons I have are the lessons that have come from life to me, and I thought these must be shared as they could bring guidance, introspection or light to someone else too.

This year I survived the challenge but I did feel rushed as I could not keep up with reading and commenting on all the blogs I wanted to.

I also missed some wonderful #azchats due to the time zone gap .

Other than all these minor hurdles it was a worthy ride and I am sure I will be enthusiastic enough and brave enough to make my hat-trick attempt next year too.

I am so grateful to all the fellow bloggers who pulled me along and had such encouraging words and inspirational work  always.

Proud to be an A to Z Survivor 2016.
