Quotes by Apurva Purohit: Author of Lady, You're Not a Man! : The Adventures of a Woman at Work

Below are some lines that caught my attention from the book -

Lady, You're Not a Man! : The Adventures of a Woman at Work

Follow the link above to read my review of the book.

"Priorities need to change at different stages of our life if we want to grow and evolve."

" We women actually have very simple needs indeed. Give or take a few diamonds, about forty pair of shoes, a few cuddles from our spouses and a reliable cook, all we want is to be happy and successful - both in our corporate lives and at home."

"Most wars are lost in our minds much before we have stepped out on the battlefield. In a choice between skill and great attitude, attitude always wins, hands down."

"Pregnancy is not an illness, it's a process of life."

Reflections: A to Z Challenge April 2015

It's finally over. Yes, it was my reaction when I published the last post with letter "Z".

If was my year of participation and I am proud of myself that I completed the challenge on both my blogs.

I am glad I choose a theme and more glad that I stuck to it!

I got two reminder emails from the one of the hosts asking me to catch up. Kudos to them for keeping a good track of all. Both emails pushed me to catch up and schedule rest in advance.

For this blog, I decided to blog the pregnancy quotes with an expression or word starting with each letter of the day. While, some were easy, others were extremely difficult to find. I also came across several quotes I simply loved - I loved all I posted, but you know some just stays in your heart.

An interview to myself!

Q: Did I have a theme?
A: yeah! Check out the theme reveal...

Q: Did I finished with success?
A: Yes.

Q: Did I plan my posts in advance?
A: I tried to do that before April, but failed to do that.

Q: Did I post everyday?
A: No. While I managed to schedule some of my posts in advance once a while, I also had to work really hard to catch up many times.

Q: Did I learn anything?
A: Yes. 
1. General knowledge
2. Importance of planning and drafting posts in advance.

Q: Did I get more views?
A: Yes, as compared to normal months.

Q: Did I get more comments?
A: Yes, it's incredible how fellow bloggers take out time for this amazing encouragement.

Q: Did I visit more blogs and commented?
A: No! I so wish I had done it. But my official work and personal commitments left me no time to visit any blog and I barely managed to post with each letter though not everyday. 
I would definitely try to make up for it by visiting as many reflections as possible - at-least who those took out time to comment on my posts.

Q: Would I participate again next year?
A: Yes, as long as I am blogging :)
