I’m obsessed

I had written about my obsession long back – here. That is still probably my biggest obsession. But having a kid, makes a lot of difference. You have other pressing needs that your mind isn’t so obsessed about the kitchen platform. Add to it, now with a kid, the whole house is messy! So fretting…

My operating principles

Am too principled, is what I feel. Come to think of it, I have missed out on a whole lot of fun in life because that. The quote – “Don’t take life too seriously, no one makes it out alive anyway!” is maybe meant for people like me. I realize that, but my brain and…

Inspires me

I don’t remember who, but someone once told me, “Learn all that you can from all the sources you can”. I follow it diligently. I think everyone has something different to teach us. The teacher I wrote about, in one of my posts, who stood by me, against her colleagues opinion, she was one of…

When death arrives…

… it is nothing like you can imagine! If you haven’t seen it up close yourself, there is nothing that you can even compare it with. As children, whenever a death occurred in someone’s house, we would never be taken to see them. It was only our parents who went. My first encounter with seeing…

My Personal Gifts

Without sounding too boastful, I would like to say that “listening” is one of the personal gifts that I have received. Also, listening works well, if you don’t want to talk too much yourself. I am sort of an introvert-ish person. I say sort of, because I talk to people, I don’t have a problem…

I am on this earth to…

This prompt brought forth the thoughts that I keep trying to push to the background. I’ve deep down in my heart believed that I’m on this earth to achieve something big. I know that “big” is a relative term. Since childhood, I always felt that I need to prove my capability to my parents by…

The principles of honesty are deep-rooted within me. My mind goes back to an incident that had occurred, back…

I dream about

Having my own business. My creative and artistic learning put to use. Turning a distant passion into an everyday reality. A beautiful space, called home. Adorned with hand-crafted stuff. Peaceful and inviting. A shelf full of books, a seat by the window, a cup of tea and the time to enjoy a good read. A…

Words that best describe me

On a spur, I decided to take up this 28 days personal discovery prompt challenge. It was done in Feb actually, but that shouldn’t stop me from taking it up any time, isn’t it? How it works is that, there are 28 prompts which I should write/blog about. I’ve decided to do it, over the…

Gundu updates..

I was reading my journal entries from a year back and realized I was such a harried mom at that point of time. The beauty of it all is, that I hardly remember any of that agony now. Time is such a healer. During those days, I always used to wonder, how on earth people…

July – Book Review

Okay, I am not really good at reviewing stuff and haven’t tried it before. But I wanted to blog about a few things that I’ve consciously decided to do. It’s more of, keeping an account and motivating myself to do better. While I was a voracious reader at some point of time in my life,…
