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…

T – Time

Some days are a race against time. Today has been one such day. What started off with cooking and packing for office at 6.30 in the morning is yet to come to a close. The day at office was hectic with a long list of work lined up, back to back discussions and meetings, clarifications…

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…

P – Passion

Time and again my thoughts keep revolving around the fact that in all these years I haven’t been able to identify what is it that I am passionate about? What is it for which I can stay awake all through the night and work for and not feel tired or worn out? True that I…

M – Mondays

This challenge was supposed to have Sundays exempted, because there are 24 alphabets and 4 weeks in April, so you do the math. But I conveniently forget to write a post every Saturday. I wonder why. This adds to the pressure to meet the target on a Sunday. While I am talking about the days,…

L – Love

Love they say is overrated. Is it really? Come to think of it, what is life without love and care? Love in any form – love for your children, love between siblings, among friends, love for your partner. These form the essence of life. It is among these relationships that we exist and evolve. If…

J – Journal

If there are long spans of my absence on the blog, you can be sure I am writing my heart out into the journal. Similarly if I am here blogging, there will hardly be any entries in the journal. I somehow find it tedious to write into both, rather I feel I will be repetitive….

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….

F – Friends

Just 5 alphabets done and am already here, trying to meet the deadline by drafting a post at 11 in the night. Though I had this topic on my mind all day, first I couldn’t find the time due to work throughout the day and then I had my friend come over to my place…

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…

Of endings and new beginnings

The curtains are drawing to close and am trying to catch the last glimpses before this year’s show ends. My year always starts of great, as I have new plans, hopes and aspirations and I do my best in trying to fulfill them. By mid-year my enthusiasm takes a dip, I get caught up in…

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…
