My Gratitude List for May 2019 #GratitudeCircle

Six months into 2019 and I feel so happy in this year so far. Actually, I could reach my goals already. 

I joined work in Jan 2019 after one and half years break and my dance school is growing slowly. I am excited about our dance school's annual recital in September!


That is the reason, I am grateful and thankful to God than ever. 


Here is my Gratitude List for the last month - May 2019:


1. Work life

There are many things to be thankful for in my work life. A good manager, supportive lead and colleagues, interesting work where I can learn new skills and improve my current skills etc., 

2. Dance School

The dance school is doing good. I am happy to see students showing interest in art and practicing regularly to improve themselves. I feel grateful to my students who encourage and challenge my art.

3. Travel

Nowadays, it has become an obsession to plan my trips, research places and enjoy outdoors. Thanks to my husband for his love of traveling and thanks to my wonderful kids who are adaptive.

You might have read my recent travelogues, else, here are some links:




Utah Vacation Plan with Kids

Day 1 - Arches National Park and Canyonlands National park

Day 2 - Monument Valley Park and Four Corners National monument

Day 2 - Mesa Verde National Park

Day 3 - Pagosa Springs and Crestone


4. Books


I couldn't read many books due to work and managing home. I could read only one book 'The Girl on the train' by Paula Hawkins. I loved the book and my review is coming soon. The characterization in such books amazes me.

5. Writing regularly


It's been a wonder that I am managing to write twice or at least once a week these days. I am joining one blog hop for sure every month and so, I am reading blogs of my blogger friends too.

I am also learning to add good images, adding a watermark and creating social media friendly graphics with Canva.

That was about my May. I wish you all a happy June. Yes, six months have gone so quickly, but there is a lot more to achieve in another six months :-)
Until next time,



I received this tag from my blogger friend Amrita and I am passing it on to Anagha Yatin, another amazing blogger friend.

Good to know things I have been well. I’ve seen a few pictures from your dance performances on Facebook and you are very talented, Ramya!

Good that work is going well too. Not easy after a break so as a fellow woman at work, I'm
Immensely proud of you.

For sure your first 6 months have been a big hit. You are working, have a dance school, travel and also blog apart from the mandatory looking after the family! Commendable. Have a great rest of the year.

Looking for the littlest of things and finding happiness in them is a trait worth emulating.
Loved this list, Mahathi, and wish you the best for the remaining six months of 2019!

Coming back to writing is the best that can happen to a writer. Wish you loads of success in the coming years.

Loved reading your lovely half-yearly round-up post, Ramya! Good to know you're balancing work with travel and learning new skills as well as writing twice a week! That's quite an achievement for a working-mom, you know and you deserve to pat yourself on the back for doing it! Wishing the rest of 2019 brings you more reasons to enjoy and be proud of your achievements, Ramya.
