In favour of spontaneity and exploring a cute town

In favour of spontaneity and exploring a cute town

I’ve mostly lived my life planning things out. I have a zillion to-do lists – some on paper, some on my devices and some just in my head. But I mostly like having an idea about things that I have to do and hence have some control over my day. So when even mundane things in my everyday existence are mostly planned, trips are definitely […]

Looking back and looking forward

Looking back and looking forward

“Guten Rutsch”, a friend greeted me in German for New Year. When I asked what it meant, he said that literally it translates to “A good slide into the New Year” or more like a “Smooth start to the New Year”. A rather interesting way to greet isn’t it? It has been a few days into the new year. I know that perhaps the looking […]

Plans, Morning routine and things not going my way

Plans, Morning routine and things not going my way

Hello February! I like the beginnings – I like New Year and I like the beginnings of months. Keeping aside my hatred of Mondays for they mark the end of the weekend; I like Mondays because they mark the start of something. There is something about beginnings that motivates me to do something new or to do something better or be better or to start […]

Finding the simple joys of life during a pandemic

Finding the simple joys of life during a pandemic

I can’t believe that it has been 6 months of staying at home. Apart from the few times I went grocery shopping, I haven’t stepped out of my building. While I’m grateful for the things I have that are making my life easier during the pandemic, I’ve definitely not been pleased with the whole situation. Being stuck in a room all day with work that […]

That was Summer

That was Summer

I have always been mesmerized by the change of seasons. The sunshine, the rain and almost non-existent winter in between. Each season brings with it its own memories. For me, summers brings about a sense of nostalgia like no other! The exams, the vacation, the mangoes, the games, the books, the rain – all of it brings about a yearning for that time that now […]

Be your own sunshine #WednesdayVerses

Be your own sunshine #WednesdayVerses

We rush through life, Always having something to do, For we don’t have the time, To take things slow. We think about yesterdays, Worrying what tomorrow has in store. We wait forever for better days, Forgetting to live in the present. Our worries and troubles never cease, There is no time to be here and now.  We fail to put our minds at ease, From […]

Count your blessings #WednesdayVerses

Count your blessings #WednesdayVerses

On a grumpy Monday morning, While I try to reach the terror called the office, I’m forced to take the road less taken without a warning. I keep worrying about the zillion things on my mind, Wondering where life is taking me, Because the time for myself, I cannot find. As I look out, I find the most beautiful smiles, On the faces of people, […]

Can I hit reset? #WordsMatter

Can I hit reset? #WordsMatter

20 years ago, I wanted to be so many things, but now, I’d rather be just me. As a kid, I’d never stopped dreaming. There were so many things that I wanted to be and there were so many things that I wanted to do. If someone asked me what I wanted to be, I always had an answer though a different one. It would […]

Take me back #WednesdayVerses

Take me back #WednesdayVerses

With a long list of things to do, From one thing to the next I run, Caught in this mess, I wonder, Wasn’t life supposed to be fun? My body craves for that restful sleep, While I battle through nightmares of tomorrow. My mind craves for those moments of peace, But I end up in the depths of sorrow. Life has become a crazy race, And I long for those days […]

A part of my soul #WednesdayVerses

A part of my soul #WednesdayVerses

I grew up dreaming, Of life filled with laughter, Like a story that would end, With happily ever after. But then things changed, Then trouble came. And life I thought, Would never be the same. For that one thing broke me, Making tiny pieces of my little soul. I cried night and day, Afraid that I’d never again feel whole. I tried fixing things, Praying […]
