X – ‘X’

Remember way back in school, how you had the task of finding ‘x’ in Mathematics? It took on so many roles. ‘X’ could be the simple number of apples to a value in an extremely complex equation. But the best part about the whole thing was, if you derived it logically, you could always find…

W – Words

Words have so much power. Words are so beautiful. They can express all that you want, just the way you want it. Some people have a way with words, they just string them together and it becomes poetry. Though I have always been a person who prefers prose to poetry, I still can’t stop admiring…

Q – Quit

Many times during this blogging challenge, I have come so close to quitting. Especially on the days that I haven’t been able to think of a subject to write on, till late in the night. It is always the easier option isn’t it? Of the multiple little voices in my head, one of it, keeps…

K – Kick

Is what I feel like giving myself right now! I have been thinking all day on what to post from the alphabet and couldn’t find anything suitable! BG is torturing me by giving some abominable suggestions when I asked him for words from K for blogging. The word abominable reminds of just one thing –…

I – Inspire

Read this recently – What-have-you-tried-for-30-days-that-changed-everything  and was really inspired. I have read similar things before, like on zenhabits where the writer practices and encourages you to try out a month of mindfulness, a month of minimalism and many such things. It takes a lot of commitment and constant effort to practice it. It is something that…

G – Guilt

Whether or not we take any other trip, my mind keeps taking these guilt trips from time to time. I keep telling myself that I need to be more relaxed on myself.  I keep reading loads of articles, many of which are on self-forgiveness and self-love. Putting it into practice is far more difficult though….

E – Empty

Have you ever felt that more the stuff we fill our lives with, the emptier we feel? I get that feeling all the time. Our growing up years were really far more comfortable than that of our parents. We didn’t struggle for the basic needs. We led a simple middle class life. A car, a…

C – Colors

As a teenager, when I had to pick clothes, my choice of colors would almost always be shades of brown or grey or pastels. I wouldn’t even look at the bright colors. Yellows and oranges would be a big no-no! I wonder why I was like that? The dresses I chose looked dull and Dad…

Am alive!

Forget writing, I haven’t even looked at the posts in my reader for the past 4 to 5 months. The crazy job that I took, has made my life so damn hectic, that I have had no energy left for anything. The expectation is very high and so is the stress associated with it. I…

Rant-y affair!

If I let things be, the days that ran into weeks, will run into months. I wonder what gets to me. Sometimes, I am on a writing spree and I want make a note of all that’s happening. Then there comes a lull, which will stretch into hibernation, if I let it. A pattern that…

Hola!

The sunny hot March came and is about to leave and I couldn’t write a single post throughout this month. I was impressed with my regular posting in Feb. I must have jinxed it for myself. 😛 I have been super busy at work, in March. Ironically, I have resigned and am on my notice…

That’s what’s up!

It’s already Feb! I wonder how many times I have already made this statement on the blog and elsewhere, that time just flies! Didn’t the new year just start? Now it’s already past a month. My reader which used to be flooded with posts in Jan suddenly seems empty, now that the blogathon is over….
