Weekly Gratitude – 2 #SoulfulSunday

“No duty is more urgent than giving thanks.” – James Allen Another week of January just went by. It’s time for my weekly gratitude post. I would say the week that has gone by, was a good one. Not an extraordinary one. Not a week where I checked off all items on my to-do list. […]

Weekly Gratitude -1 #SoulfulSunday

I decided to write a weekly gratitude series on my blog this year. Last year my gratitude journal wasn’t always filled with words of gratitude. And this year I am planning to change that. Along with my daily gratitude journaling, I will publish a weekly gratitude post every Sunday. And a monthly gratitude post at […]

Lies #SoulfulSunday

“I am enough”, the lies I tell myself!  Sometimes it makes me happy and able.  So I keep up with the charade and chant,“I am enough”.  Often though, the lies stare at me and it hurts like hell. I am trying my best. Another lie. Maybe, not my best, but I’m trying to be enough.  […]

Taking Responsibility #SoulfulSunday

I love making plans. I love making plans and following them. At least I used to. I have made so many plans in the past and fulfilled them too. But of late, my plans are falling apart.  To begin with I’m not coming up with stable plans. And following the plans has become a hassle […]

Imperfect – the only way of existence #SoulfulSunday

The paper is scattered with words. There is no pattern. Or is there a pattern that I miss to understand?  The blotched ink on the paper says that despite the effort sometimes things get messy. I hate seeing blotches like that on paper. It isn’t professional. It isn’t nice.  But I’m lying. I just want […]

My Journey of Self Discovery #SoulfulSunday

What makes me a writer? I started writing when I was in the 6th grade. I wrote one 6 liner verse and 4-5 2 liners and showed it to my parents.  I remember writing them, the hesitation and the desire to show them, the sort of disbelief on my parents’ face, the feeling of content […]

A Wonderful Outing and Some Reflections #SoulfulSunday

Last week we went on a trip to see the fall colors. The trip was fabulous. We Phoenicians are deprived of fall colors and winter wonderland experiences if not for our cooler cities on the north side. The trip to Flagstaff is laced with vistas of gorgeous mountains all around us. This being the first […]

Plans for the Week #SoulfulSunday

I like my days calm and clutter-free. Not filled with so many appointments. But the week that went by, was busier than the one I imagined what busy meant. The weekend came as a relief. However, it had its share of things to do. Akku’s birthday was yesterday. Thankfully, we didn’t plan for anything major. […]
