Where did we go wrong?

You know my biggest fear? That one day, I would look at the man my son had become, and wonder what went wrong with my parenting. That, he would be far from the sensitive, loving, generous and honest boy I am raising. That my values, my teachings won’t mean anything. That I was an unsuccessful…

Those 6 months

Do you believe in Astrology and fortune tellers? I don’t. Well except for that crazy fascination with Sun signs during the growing years. Looking up for the best matches; Scorpio goes well with Cancer and Pisces, Leo and Gemini are a bad combo. Apparently. Thankfully, I grew up and learnt that people don’t need the…

Thank You

I am not a poetess and I don’t pretend to be. Just another girl telling what she feels. That someone sitting on her couch, trying hard not to slouch. Thinking how far she’s come, and how life isn’t always about fun. We say thank you when everything goes good. And thank we definitely should. Thanks…

Take a chance on me

Exactly an year ago, this day was my last working day. I had quit a 7 figure, salaried job to focus on my passions for fitness, food and travel. I had quit the security of having a solid financial backup to constantly wondering about the income coming in. I had quit multiple vacations every year…

#metoo #mentoo #whatswrongwiththeworld

If you are a woman, or a man who is friendly, understanding, respectful and non-sexist towards the women in your life, you might have heard multiple stories of them getting molested and abused. The saddest part is no matter how varied are the people in any group, when this conversation begins, every one has something…

The art of getting high

Disclaimer: There is a lot of profanity used in this post. I feel very passionately about this topic and literally boils my blood every time I think of it. So, I profusely apologize for the language used. I hope you will understand why I did that when you read it and maybe feel the way…

Fight Club

Somebody once called me a popularity w**** (not the exact word used by them, but exactly what was meant), trying to piggyback on social media, spreading lies and trying to get famous. Get famous? Really? I have a paltry 1000 followers, and a few hundreds read my blog post. Sometimes the likes on my posts…

Living with anxiety

I can’t breathe. My heart’s pounding. I look up at my Fitbit and my heart rate looks like I am on the last sprint of my 5 Km run. But, I am sitting on my couch. Or bed. Or at a party. Watching a movie. With my friends. On a holiday. I want to cry….

Lost and Found

I started writing this the morning we found Hela. I haven’t changed it because this truly expresses the despair we felt. It was exactly 20 days since we had lost her. This was the first morning, that I woke up and told myself that I had to get a grip over myself. That no matter…

Step Back

I have talked about depression  a lot of times.  I have talked about how it is to battle it day in and day out. The feelings one can’t explain and share (Julia Michaels puts it down accurately in “Anxiety”) . About how family and friends should help their loved ones dealing with it. Today, I…
