💜THIS IS FOR YOU!🌸
Okay, really, I don't know how to start and indubitably I don't know what to write, but as my fingers hit each letter on my keyboard, the words will finally come together to make a piece.
This week started on a not too good note but what could have been more exciting than getting to the next round of a writing challenge, of which the story was written a few hours to the deadline. I was so elated to see my name on the accepted entry list but I knew(and still know) my happiness would have worn a crown if I had won.
The link to my story got released and I started the BC. My own world could have been so blank and dark these past few weeks and exerting so much energy to the publicity of the challenge might as well drain the little energy left in me, but what could I have done without so much motivational push(es) from great friends? Despite this, I had (still have) to be there for a great friend who is organizing a 10-day webinar by being a member of the organizing committee, and also the compere of the webinar, I don't even know where the energy emanated(still emanates) from but I just had to be there for him and because of him.
The DM publicity started and I was wowed by the number of comments so far in just a few hours, it is definitely not surprising that I was leading the comment poll until this morning- trust me, you're super-duper amazing!!!
I had those who kept uploading on their WhatsApp stories, those who created a BC list, those who kept asking for updates and when they are not so comfortable with the number, they say instantly-send your link again, those who strategized for and with me, those who kept motivating me not to give up despite what I was going through, those who kept hyping and sharing to their friends' friends, those who...
(I've lost count, seriously!)
God! Everyone who left a comment on the post! I don't even know the appropriate word(s) to write, -you're the real MVP! Those I know, those I don't even know and those I might never know, the love and support were indomitable!
So, what happened this morning when I checked the blog for updates? I was being led by 5 comments and just immediately I saw that I started my publicity game again. A big shout out to everyone who sent the link out this morning, to everyone who instantly replied to my plea message, to everyone who made sure people left a comment this morning to get back my 5 comments. I really appreciate, what more would I say if a 243 comment changes to 272 just this morning!
Maybe I was 2 comments away from winning or maybe I didn't reply all the comments made on the post(an instruction which was never stated in the sent mail), and because of a 274:272 comment poll, I didn't get to bring this home but I've found a home in you!
it is quite painful I led for four days until this morning, but it was amazing to have found great hopes in many homes in four days- THANK YOU!!
We almost brought it home because we had the highest comments but I didn't reply to the comments(they never stated that in the instruction, though, and my little ass didn't know it was "necesstri" because I felt comments would be counted and not my numerous replies).
I have no idea what I did in my first lifetime, neither do I know what I'm currently doing in my present life but the love and support were incomprehensible!
You guys kept cutting onions when I was literally bleeding emotionally and you also led me out of my black hole of emotion with the ever-rising comments daily.
Here is a big THANK YOU TO EVERYONE! I'M IMMENSELY GRATEFUL!!!
And of course, it's the first day of the holy month of Ramadan.
💜💜 May Allah grant all our heart desires and fill our lives with peace, blessings, happiness, and goodwill.💜💜
