10 day “You” challenge: Four Books

Her perception was right and something I am extremely grateful for as I dedicate my love for […]

#ThankfulThursday : Being Human is a miracle in itself!

#ThankfulThursday Years ago, I was in the midst of a personal relationship that had become more misery than happiness. It was draining my self-esteem and depression had started to steep into my core. I was finding it easy to just let things be and bury myself in the depths of despair as fighting was too […]

10 day “You” challenge: Six Places

SIX PLACES When I first came down to Delhi from a small town like Jammu, I couldn’t get over the largeness of this city or the humdrum it possesses. I had never had the freedom to run around on my own either as my parents brought us up as very protected. So growing up we […]

10 Day “You” Challenge – Seven Wants

SEVEN WANTS While growing up, I was seen as a difficult child by my peers and parents alike simply because I “wanted” to do things. My argument to-date with peeps is this : “do something because you want to do it and not because you Have to do it!” There is joy and passion in […]

Eat, Pray, Love !!!

When I first watched this movie – Eat, Pray, Love – some 6 years back, I simply couldn’t relate to it and dismissed it. The book was even worse and I couldn’t get past 4-5 pages. So that was that. Cut to 2016, a lot of emotional upheavals later, I caught the tail end of this […]

Thankfullness Ahoy!!

 All through 2016 I have been moaning n groaning about how terrible this year is being to me. I ranted at the divine and blamed the universe for pushing me so hard. When the turmoil settled in deep, I got used to it and started going along with it in a zombie like trance.  Eventually…………………… I snapped! […]

I believe in Santa Klaus

“You have got to be kidding me?” pipped up my coffee companion incredulously, “You believe in Santa Klaus?” “Yes I do”, I reverted calmly. “Wow!!” second one laughed and rest of them joined in. Laughter subsided into a small silence and then one of them challenged a little hesitatingly, “prove it”. “OK. You know the basic surmise of […]

#NaBloPoMo: Day #29: Mind: Still the Mind

#NaBloPoMo This card is an extension to yesterday’s card. I wont elaborate much on it as I find it pretty similar but will say this that calming the mind is the best thing to harvest its full potential. A calm and rested mind is our best ally in the stressful world today – be it […]

Our mind handles an immense number of thoughts and issues; so it needs to be recharged periodically through short resting phases. This is why we have sleep in our life.

#NaBloPoMo: Day #27: Balance – Give away something you love!

#NaBloPoMo De-cluttering my life has been on my plate since past few months. The idea being  take out everything in the house that I haven’t used for few months; be it clothes, linen, shoes, bags, utensils, crockery, etc. Basically anything that has the feel of hoarded up without a utility is going to be tossed out unceremoniously. The […]

#NaBloPoMo: Day #26: Mind- Reset your patterns

#NaBloPoMo This card essentially talks about looking at things from a different perspective. Lately I have come of realisation that it’s not that things are going wrong in my life it’s just that I am not looking at things in the way I am supposed to look at them. I have started thinking that it’s not […]
