Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 170 – Happiness in Learning😊


“I never lose – either I win or I learn.


Thanks, Spidey!

So, the Annual Bloggers Bash was yesterday, and I was all geared up for my talk, and the Panel Discussion. There was the small case of being nominated for the Best Overall Blogger to look forward to too, but I didn’t let that worry me.

The talk went well, the Panel Discussion passed in a flash, and then the final awards were called.

This time I was awarded Runner Up in the category I had been nominated in.

I was so pleased to be able to ‘pass my crown’ onto the next deserving winner, Linda, of Linda’s Book Bag.

Because, despite all the glory that came with the award last year, I also managed to put myself under immense pressure to be “The Best”.

And that wasn’t easy.

Instead, I have learned that being nominated is an honour, to be placed is a blessing, and to be part of the event is just sheer joy!

So, what do I take from this?

I shan’t pressure myself to be constantly ‘on’.

I will take a step back, breathe, enjoy life, not go AWOL, but not worry if I miss a challenge post, or if a week goes by and I haven’t posted something original. If I can’t reach you all on my reader, I know you’ll understand.

Superwoman needs a break too, sometimes!

And I know I’m still a winner in some eyes. ❤


Keep living and learning Peeps!

Happy Sunday!

    Yes your a winner in my eyes Sis! But what did you say “but not worry if I miss a challenge post, or if a week goes by and I haven’t posted something original. If I can’t reach you all on my reader, I know you’ll understand.” You little fibber I have never known you take time out, you say you will, but? 😁 Love you Sis 💜

    Thanks for sharing this, Ritu, and congrats for being nominated. Look forward to posts showing the winners. I think I commented on one of your posts that you could always take a break once in a while and I recall you saying that blogging/writing was a source of happiness and creativity (in so many words). I had to take my break due to work and I don’t regret it, and now I am excited to host Sunday Stills, which will take a weekly commitment to the blog, which is doable. I found that my break did not “break” my blog and your loyal followers will always be there! 🙂

    Always in a winner in my eyes, Ritu. You’re such an important part of the whole Bloggers Bash community and event. It wouldn’t be the same without you. And I’m so pleased to read this post and see what you are going to do going forward.
    It was another brilliant day. One that will be talked about for many years to come.
    Thank you for making it possible by being there.

    Exactly, Spidey! That’s what I try to convey too. We cannot fail, we only gain experience. If we never risked failing we keep ourselves from succeeding! Funny, I just created another meme with such a statement half an hour ago. Keep on risking, sis 😉
