A peg of anxiety

Anxiety is like your brain synapses are firing a million signals at the same time, asking you to finish the job you have been procrastinating, analyzing what you said and did, revisiting painful memories, wondering where you are going in the future, thinking of some new projects or ideas, wondering what to make for lunch…

The Way Forward

I remember spending my days curled up on the couch, sobbing. Through my teary eyes, I would watch my 3 year old son jump around and play. He would try to talk to me in his adorable language and I wouldn’t hear a thing. I wanted to. I wanted to get up. Hug him, play…

Types of friends

I started writing this more than an year ago. Remember a friendship of mine was ruined and I cried and cried and cried? Through tears and through posts. Booohooo! If I get 1 buck for each time I wrote about that dead friendship, I will probably not even make 10. Well, well. I am not…

37 years around the sun

I am right now thousands of miles up in the sky somewhere between Indonesia and Malaysia. Depending on when I publish this post, I might be close to, or already 37 years old. Why is my age being mentioned here? Be patient and read on. I make extensive “To do lists”. Daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly…
