Same but Different|Weekly Photo Challenge – Family

I had decided to be anonymous when I initially started blogging. But once I started blogging regularly and doing the Daily Prompts, I found my soul bare on the blog. And I decided not to remain anonymous anymore, it made no sense anyway. I showed my real name, shared a bit about my life and also my family. But I still want to keep my family photos away from the World Wide Web so for this Weekly Photo Challenge – Family, I am going to share my thoughts about family but not sharing their photos.

I believe that a family is formed out of love, it is not necessarily a by-birth sort of institution for many people but it is a matter of connecting with the people we love. A family without love is no family at all.

A family celebrates similarities and differences!

A family of individuals!!!

So here is a family of cupcakes who are essentially the same but different just like my family. I and my siblings have some ridiculously similar habits while we have very different personalities and preferences in life. I am very different in my approach to life (generation gap? haha) but I am in many ways a reflection of my parents!

Growing up I absorbed their habits, thinking, patterns and preferences like a sponge but as I am growing mature, I am making my own habits, choosing different thoughts and following new patterns. And my family still loves me like they did before. Aren’t I lucky? You bet!

I love the concept of “brother from another mother” and “sister from another mister”!!! Cheers to the wonderful people in our lives – the ones we are related to by birth and the ones we choose to keep close.

  1. Thanks to the genetic baffle, we are each a separate entity, an original. Like snowflakes, no two of us is exactly alike, even twins. We have the right to change our likes and dislikes and to mold ourselves into a different shape if we choose. Families are of the heart, and, as you say, and without love there is no family.

  7. I still have a pseudonym but more and more people know who I am now. I like the tiny firewall I think.
