The Three Musketeers

This post is completely different from all my other posts till date, if you have been following me for some time, you might have noticed that I generally don’t post about myself or my personal life or my personal friends, this time its going to be different. In this post, I am going to tell you about Three Musketeers of my life, three people, whom I met in this blogger world but who are now a big part of my life. These are the people who are staying far away from me but they are always there for me whenever I need them. This post is dedicated to them.

My First Musketeer, “P”, my close friend, is such a lovely woman, she always checks up on me, makes sure that I am doing well, and if something isn’t right with me, I don’t need to ask her twice, she will always be there for me. Other then being my friend, as I told earlier, she is also a full-time blogger, she has two cutest kids, and she maintains everything, like everything, she is a Superwoman. She is so passionate about well-being of her kids and other kids that you will know everything you need to grow your own kids.
Like most of us, she also loves to read in her free time, her favourite book is ‘The Color Purple’ by Alice Walker. Let me tell you something about this book, this book weaves an intricate mosaic of women joined by their love for each other, the men who abuse them, and the children they care for. In the first few letters, Celie tells God that she has been raped by her father and that she is pregnant for the second time with his child. Later on…..

No, I am not telling you the complete story, it will just ruin a very good book for you. But I was talking about “P”, while reading the book, she loves to listen to one particular song, “No Woman No Cry by Lauryn Hill, see, she is different from others, maybe that’s why she is my close friend. She blogs as www.withlovefromp.com.

My second musketeer, “Salona”, what to say about her, she is just a perfect sister I could ever have, no, she is not my sister, but she is everything I can expect from a sister. She checks up on me. She always encourages me to write and I always look up to her whenever I am stuck at some point of life, considering that she herself is such a talented person, she is so spiritual person, whenever I feel low, I just need to talk to her and she will fill me with positivity. She writes about motivations, about the things that we generally overlook in our day to day life. Her favourite book is The Power of Now, by Eckhart Tolle. A book which is a spiritual self-help guide to help us discover our true Being, release our pain and find deep inner peace, this is such a relaxing book. While reading books, she loves to listen “The Power of Mozart”, western classical music which fills you with positiveness all over, no matter how much negative you feel, the combination of this book with this song, it will give you a peace of mind. Anyway, back to “Salona“, she is such a positive person, at times, just talking to her calms my storms down. She manages www.loveinabindance.co.za.

My third musketeer, “David”, he is the person with whom I can share my feelings, he is an extremely close friend of mine, if life is giving lemons, he will make lemonade with it and give that to me because I am thirsty. In short he is a sweetheart. He is like an editor of my posts (except this), he proofreads most of my posts and makes sure that I don’t do silly mistakes, which I usually do a lot. He keeps an eye out for me when I am too ignorant to do so. He has a very lovely daughter, and he is a single dad. He generally writes about………… Well he generally writes about everything. He is a great guy. His favourite book is “The Count of Monte Cristo” by Alexandre Dumas. The story takes place in France, Italy, and islands in the Mediterranean during the historical events of 1815–1839: the era of the Bourbon Restoration through the reign of Louis-Philippe of France. It begins just before the Hundred Day’s period (when Napoleon returned to power after his exile). It centres on a man who is wrongfully imprisoned, escapes from jail, acquires a fortune, and sets about exacting revenge on those responsible for his imprisonment. His plans have devastating consequences for both the innocent and the guilty, while reading this adventurous fiction, this guy loves to listen to “The Lost Ark”, the relaxing instrumental music.
Back to “David“, he is a caring person, especially in the recent times, he has helped me a lot in getting better from the situation I was in. He manages www.singledadsguidetolife.com.

What situation I was in, will tell you that story, maybe someday.
This post I dedicate to my three musketeers, without whom, I might not be here in this blogging world at this place sharing my thoughts with you all my lovely readers.

I hope you enjoyed reading it..

See you again next week. Take care…
