A day in our life #WriteBravely

For today’s Write Tribe Festival of Words #6, I invited my dearest friends to tell us about a typical day in their lives. I’ve often wished that I had just half the fun they do – when you read what they have to say, I’m sure you’ll agree with me! So, without further ado, let me turn this over to them!

Life – it is beautiful! From dawn to dusk, we are engaged in the things that matter the most to us. We follow our curiosity, indulge our passion, and also get up to a bit of fun and mischief from time to time!

Let us give you a peek into this beautiful life.

Oh, and fair warning – we don’t like linear stories, so we aren’t going to do a boring time-table and tell you when we wake up and when we go to bed!

Let’s start, instead, with one of our passions – food!

Finding Beth #WriteBravely

Central Park, New York

When I visited New York a couple of years ago, I had a few place marked down on my must-visit list. There were the usual suspects like the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Wall Street, as well as iconic eateries in Little China and Little Italy. But along with the usual list, there were a couple of places that may not make it to people’s must-visit itinerary.

One such was the Bethesda Fountain.Continue reading

Time: our most precious resource #WriteBravely

Time – it’s the most precious resource we have. And it’s the one resource that a lot of us waste {me included}. We spend hours stuck on social media, scrolling through other people’s curated lives, participating in dramas that are not our own. Sometimes, we do it to escape our own thoughts….sometimes, we do it because we are afraid of owning our dreams…sometimes, we are just not aware of it, for it becomes an addiction.

So ask yourself this:Continue reading

My greatest treasure: A mirror to my heart #WriteBravely

What if I told you that my greatest treasure is a mirror? But it is no ordinary mirror – it’s a mirror to my heart, to my soul. It gives me a portal into my own innate wisdom, a way to navigate through the inevitable obstacles that arise during my days. It reflects back both light and shadows, helping me to gently work at uncovering my hurts, tending to them, and becoming whole again.

It works, like most magical mirrors do, with intention, with questions; the clearer the intent, the more focused the question, the stronger the mirror’s reflective powers.Continue reading

Journey of a Seeker: The Power of Meditation

Journey of a seeker power of meditation

A spiritual journey is an inward journey – it’s a journey to gain a deeper understanding of ourselves, our life and our purpose. It’s easy for us to get caught up in the roles of society, in the rules we are conditioned to live by, in the pursuit of wealth, success, or the next shiny new toy.

But true peace comes from our inner strength, from the stillness and silence that is at the very core of who we are. It is this inner silence and peace that radiates out into our lives, creating a sense of serenity, calmness and balance in everything that we do. The best way that I have found to tap into this silence is through a regular meditation practice.Continue reading

Anything but books

I’m generally not a huge fan of blog tags, mostly because I’m just too lazy to answer questions about myself! But I’ve been seeing this book tag do the rounds, and it looks really interesting. So when Sreesha tagged me on the Anything But Books tag, I had to give it a go.


Here’s how this works. I’ve been given a set of questions. My answers have to be about anything – as the name suggests – but books. At the end of the post, I’ll tag a few other bloggers to share their answers.

Here goes!Continue reading

Monthly Tarot Forecast for July 2017

Last night, when I was almost ready to turn in, I was hit with the idea for a new Tarot spread for these monthly forecasts. Instead of looking at our blessings, challenges and how we can make the most of the month ahead, this month, we’ll look at the theme of the month, the challenges it brings, and what lessons those challenges can teach us. Here are your cards:

Be what you want to be: defining your success mantra

how to create your own definition of success

Over the last few years, I’ve thought a lot about success…about what it means to me, not the definitions thrown around by society, friends, and biz coaches trying to sell the dream of earning a six-figure income while sipping mojitos at the beach.

As I pondered this question and examined my changing definition of success over the years, I’ve found that it isn’t easy to set our own parameters for success and stick to them. With all the noise from social media and the interwebs, I’ve often found myself wondering if I am aiming “high enough” and dreaming “big enough”, or if I am “settling” and maybe should want “more”.Continue reading

The Journey of a Seeker

The journey of a seeker - notes from my spiritual journey

I’ve been a seeker on the spiritual path since as long as I can remember….

Why am I here?

What is my purpose?

What is the meaning of life?

These were just a few of the questions that plagued me as a teenager.

And as I searched for the answers, I became an eternal seeker.
