August is Special!

mm By in
I am excited to start my first #AtoZChallenge. Time will tell whether I stood to the test or not but let’s begin the party.
Once I decided to do the challenge, it was a bit difficult to decide the posts. Trust me, it was the hardest part but once you decide, the fun starts.
I chose ‘August‘ for ‘A’.

Why August?

August has given me some very special people and moments in my life and these people have a special place in my heart and soul.

Time is of essence, A beauty in itself.
Enjoy the present, By stacking moments neatly in shelf.

August is special because every year in August, I am gearing up for the upcoming year with new hopes and aims as it is post birthday month for me. In school and college times, it used to be the beginning of new class or semester. I used to be a nerd then so, you are free to imagine how important this month was for me.

August is special because years ago, I became an elder sister in this month and got the liberty to boss around my brother M. I have a lot of memories bossing around my brother (I do that even now). I used to help him with studies and eventually I came to know, I should never ever opt for a teaching occupation because I don’t have ‘the art of teaching’ in me. 
August is special because my brother (Calling him a cousin will be of lesser respect)  B made it special. B is kind of a motivational guru in my life. I look up to him for inspiration. He is the person to talk whenever I am feeling a little low. We share the love for books and can gossip about people (whom we don’t like) at any time. 
August is special because I started my professional life in this month. For the first time, I was away from my home to experience the real world and its learnings and I started this journey in August.
August is special because in this month only, I met my best friend (and now husband) H for the first time. It was the month when we both started our professional career together. Back then, we did not know that we would come so far but the seeds of friendship were sown in this special month. H is my friend first and a partner later. He adds a different dimension to my life and I am glad that we are sharing this life together.
August has always been dear to my heart and will always be. This month has filled my life with awesomeness and positivity. It has made me a better and stronger human.
Do you have any special memories to share?! I am all ears.

    It’s got an awesome name. According to the Online Etymology Dictionary, the name August comes from the Latin augustus, meaning “venerable, majestic, magnificent, noble.” How can you beat that, I mean really?
