Grateful for the little moments #SoulfulSunday

Once again, I found myself unwell during the Thanksgiving festivities, and another long weekend slipped away as we remained stuck at home. It all began with a sore throat that eventually developed into a low-grade fever and fatigue at the start of last week. Both my younger one and I were at the mercy of […]

Overcoming Creative Insecurities #SoulfulSunday

When I write a poem or a personal piece, my biggest concern is whether I am repeating myself. Will it become boring to the reader because I keep circling the same themes? This thought can be damaging because the answer I often come up with is yes; I am repeating myself, and the reader will […]

A Week to Relish #SoulfulSunday

Kids are back in school after the summer break, even though summer is still going strong here in Arizona. With the kids back in school, my day starts with the busyness of getting things ready for school, dropping them off at their respective schools, and later picking them up, and on and on. I’m not […]

Vacation Tales!

It’s been a while since we caught up on current affairs, hasn’t it? I am writing this while on a vacation in India. Unfortunately, our trip to India, though we call it a vacation trip, had never been anything remotely close to a vacation. Our stay in India even if it’s for a short duration […]

Gratitude Lessons #WeeklyGratitude #SoulfulSunday

Days Of Our Lives #WeeklyGratitude #SoulfulSunday

This morning my eldest left for Florida with his teachers and friends from school. It’s an educational trip filled with lots of fun activities. He was very excited about this trip. Naturally, I was nervous. But his excitement helped me relax.  I have given him instructions on what to do, what not to do, etc. […]

I Am Grateful For #WeeklyGratitude #SoulfulSunday

It feels odd writing this post today. I haven’t been writing my weekly gratitude posts since the very first one of 2023 that I published in the first week of January. The reason? Oh, there is no reason, other than excuses. Truthfully, I didn’t feel like writing a gratitude post. I wrote a couple of […]

Mindfully Creating #FridayReflections

Pain is something that until it occurs is easily forgotten, and when it appears again, it reminds you of the lovely days that you had so far. I am learning to remind myself to be grateful of the absence of pain when it is actually absent, instead of fondly remembering the absence when pain ravages […]

2023 Weekly Gratitude – 1 #SoulfulSunday

“It is not joy that makes us grateful; it is gratitude that makes us joyful.” – David Steindl-Rast January is a month of freshness. Like opening a fresh new book with blank pages ready to be filled in. But it also makes me nervous. Anything I write on this new page quickly takes away the […]
