Time To Write A Love Letter To Myself As A Thanksgiving Gift

I decided to give myself the gift of a five-day weekend instead of a four-day one, as I just needed it. I am pretty good at dropping everything when it comes to self-care and, at the same time, aware that it takes conscious effort to drop from a running train to a sudden halt on …

How Long Are We Going To Let Others Make Decisions On Our Behalf?

Somebody at work was talking about rules, etc – and my response to that was – ‘I follow the rules if I like them.’ Everybody laughed, but I was serious. I do things if they make sense to me – now, don’t get me wrong. I have lived in the real world long enough to …

My Way Or The Highway? Is It Such A Bad Thing?

As some of you know, I am in a new role. Fortunately or unfortunately, four managers have left in the last five years – while that is a problem in itself. An impact of that is that my team was left rudderless to fend for themselves in the corporate jungle. They did the best they …

How to ride the ups and downs of life like a pro?

Your Joy Is Your Sorrow Unmasked. The deeper the sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain. These are a couple of lines from Khalil Gibran’s poem that refuse to leave me. The beauty of that poem and the above lines is that it can take you deeper into the rabbit hole …

Humanity could do with a little bit of trust these days, right?

As promised last week, here is a snippet of our trip to Costa Rica. We went to a small strip of land surrounded by ocean, canals and forest called Tortuguero.

How to be free of obstacles and bust through creative blocks?

Right after the Tuscon retreat, I attended a writer’s retreat – my first one in Santa Fe, New Mexico. How did I find out about it, you ask? This year, one of my goals was to get serious about writing. I had no clue what it meant, but I knew I had to do something …

What Are You Ready To Share With Life?

It’s been a while since I blogged. Life got busy – after an eating binge in Toronto, we jetted off to Tuscon, Arizona for a delightful retreat with Alumni from a course I had taken at London Business School – Creativity and Personal Mastery. The retreat was like food for the soul. How can it …

What Do You Do After Eat, Pray and Love?

Eat, Pray, Love and Eat More!!! That’s precisely what we did on our weekend trip to Toronto, apart from hanging out with family. Food and family, what else do you need? Well, that’s not entirely true because a trip to Toronto leaves me feeling rejuvenated. It’s like I get a breath of fresh air or …

Does arranging things mean you never use them?

By nature – for the most part, I am a tidy person. And that means I like to keep things where they are. I arrange things so that they do not look disorderly. I don’t remember where it started. But, before studying for exams – everything had to be perfect, like my table, books on …
