    Just reading this made me so happy and motivated, Parul. I’ve been taking my health for granted and just got back to Yoga this week. Hope to be a regular. I’m guilty of not taking out time for myself, so need to work on that. I’ve missed blog hopping too. I loved all your points, esp. the part about volunteering with orphaned kids and getting on track with fitness. Keep inspiring, Parul!

    You are so welcome my dear! 🙂

    I feel so proud to be a part of your gratitude circle! Balance would be the apt word as you say. I just wrote about my April experience on my blog today.

    Couldn’t be glad enough that A to Z is over.

  4. A lovely post. Well done on completing the A to Z challenge. I did as well, so now it’s catchup time on all my other writing projects! Safeguard Your Visitors’ Comments from Spam

  5. April was great. Frantic, but great. All other writing ceased as I blogged my way through the theme: Build a Better Blog. Safeguard Your Visitors’ Comments from Spam

  6. Such a heartwarming post to read, Parul. There isn’t one thing to just like about this post. I love everything about it. Your doses on inspiration and happiness are so beautifully written. So wonderful to hear about the community initiative, the couch to 5K and everything else 🙂

    Have a lovely May as well.

    Wow ! I love the word balance, and enjoyed reading your post; its a beautiful feeling to know how you have managed and accomplished so much despite your challenges. I am with you for the morning walks, wherein i just walk in the park for 30-45 minutes, enjoy listening to the birds and watch children play, the greenery is such feast to the eyes as i walk, and stretch.. admire your energy and the zest to learn new ways of being creative.

  8. Your gratitude and happiness shines forth in this post Parul and spurs me to write my own post to reflect on my blessings in April!!

  9. I month of being busy That’s what ypur April seems to be like.Great job managing A to Z on top of these.

  10. Shilpa says:

    Nice to hear about your April gratitude list Parul. That community work which you did made me smile, we all need to do such work once in a while.

    I love this post. I can’t emphasize enough how much I love this post. I love the fact that you illustrated every single item of gratitude with a photograph. I love the fact that we like mostly the same things, including cooking experiments!! I love your passion for the children who don’t get enough love in their lives. If we lived closer to each other, I’d want to take a walk with you in the park.
    Here are some of the things that I am grateful for in April: the A to Z challenge (which I finished!), the spring flowers and the flowering trees, my art exhibit at the library, Easter dinner with friends and their family, my three week vegan cleanse (I feel much better after having done that!), long walks, my body (still strong at my greatly advanced age), cooking experiments!!!

    • Parul Thakur says:

      Thank you Alice. I read this comment a couple of times and each time, I smiled at the number of times you used ‘love’. Know that your words mean a lot.
      I would love to walk with you. Watch those spring flowers and may be dine together. Vegan meal, that maybe hard 😉 hugs!

  12. Inderpreet says:

    Wow! A lot of things this past month. I like the app you mentioned, I love walking and will look it up.
    Have not been doing the atoz but hope to do it next year. Congratulations for completion.
    Good idea about the handle, I shall follow it. 🙂

  13. Ramya says:

    Congrats for completing A2Z challenge Parul. Community work really improves our sense of gratitude and brings more happiness. All the best for cooking experiments. I wanted to learn zumba from a long time. Not possible with 2 kids for now. But not loosing hope 😊

  14. Damyanti says:

    So much to be grateful for, if only we make the time and the attention to notice them 🙂

  15. Denise says:

    I am grateful for every day that I have on this earth, even with back problems, allergies, bad weather, news that makes my blood boil…. It is all worth the cost to be able to share time with my family and online friends.

  16. Obsessivemom says:

    What wonderful month and you crammed in so very much. Those are the kind of days I love. Congratulations on completing the A to Z Challenge. I don’t know how you managed it along with work and so many other things.

  17. Darshana says:

    April’s never a good time for me to take part in a blogathon. It’s wonderful that you made through the challenge despite your work schedule. And C25K sounds like a great app! On my part, I’ve just returned to the blogosphere in April after a break. Feels good to be back. 🙂

    Wow, I loved your post for #gratitude April. Balancing so many different things is indeed a great thing. I am guilty of abandoning yoga and more so after getting a Fitbit, ideally I ought to be doing both. loved your pics, instagram is a great way to go.

    • Parul Thakur says:

      I love Fitbit but I haven’t abandoned Yoga. I just tell myself that the count isn’t the right representation of my workout 🙂 Thanks Vibha for stopping by!

  19. Alana says:

    Congrats on surviving A to Z. I had never thanked my body for everything it has done over the past 64 years until relatively recently. Those of us in good health have much to be thankful for.

  20. You’ve had a lovely April…I’m still catching up with your A to Z posts but kudos on finishing that! Also, the C25K is a great initiative! You’re doing some awesome work there 🙂

    So much packed in just 1 month, great. You are right when you said you managed to achieve Balance. I have taken up a 1 day Zumba class- its fun. Mentioned you in my A to Z Reflections post.

    So lovely to read about your April. It was a hectic month for most of us but for different reasons. I was taking an online sabbatical but am in awe of all you folks who diligently completed the A-Z challenge. Kudos! I think it is time for another BAR, maybe June. What say? Hope your May is fabulous too. And you know, Yoga is the best for back troubles. My dad swears by it.

    • Parul Thakur says:

      I am glad you took a break Rachna. We all need to when we need it. Yes, April was hectic but fun. We should meet soon. Let the school reopen 🙂 Yes, Yoga is my first love. Thanks for stopping by, Rachna!
