Catching up, yet again!

I can’t call it a writer’s block, because I am not much of a writer. But I have no other term for this zero post, zero journal entry phases that I go through. I just didn’t know what to write about. I wonder if it’s because too much is happening, or too less. If it…

Motivates me

When I find notes like these, which I’ve written to myself. These show I got through whatever was bothering me at that moment – Come on! It’s okay! It’s just the first day. You need a lead to proceed on. It will come with time. Things get clearer as you work on them. You can’t…

My inner critic

How I wish I could silence her! She is the cause for all my misery. She’s always up and about and never for once does she consider going to sleep. She wakes up, the moment the alarm goes off. While I choose snooze it for ten minutes, she chooses to get to work immediately –…

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…

3 most important values

Honesty – This holds the utmost importance to me. Nothing enrages me more than petty lies and dishonesty. I don’t mind it, if people speak the truth on my face instead of finding reasons or excuses. The principles of honesty are deep-rooted within me. My mind goes back to an incident that had occurred, back…

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…

Monday Blues

The weather of Bengaluru perfectly reflects how my mood has been for the past two weeks. Gloomy, dull and gray. I have set the bar for myself really high. When I don’t meet it, I am so disappointed. I am my own enemy, truly. The last couple of weeks, I’ve been attending interviews. Having no…

Talking to the old self

I was reading the posts on my old blog and read the first post I had written 8 years back. 8 years, is quite a long time. When I started off, I never thought I’d last so long. The blog, my writing and I as a person have evolved so much over time. My posts…

Six done, Six more to go!

We are halfway through the year already. Whenever a new year begins, I am pepped up with new ideas and aspirations. These sometimes disappear as the year progresses. From a couple of months I am trying to set up smaller goals, which align with my yearly resolutions. I try keeping record of my progress on…

On my mind

I wish it was possible to peek just a little into the future, you know, just to know that things will turn out fine, unlike how I worry. I have always been someone who worries a lot. Never known to have been calm and clear-headed. Things turn out absolutely fine, many times when I have…

Pregnancy Diary – 18.04.2017

I was thinking today and realized that I am quite enjoying being pregnant. I was rather feeling sad today that I get to be in this phase for just another 45 days or so. Sure, the sitting, turning, bending, walking, everything takes effort and is uncomfortable. But the sensation of my baby wiggling, prodding at…
