There’s a Gujarati song I’ve been humming every morning ever since I first heard it – ‘ I love you re mari sawar ‘ which loosely translates to ‘I love you, O dear beloved mornings mine’. In the last 1 week, I had a few goosebump moments which made my mornings and day extra magical. I guess when we’re in synchronicity with the Universe, magic and miracles flow to us with ease.

A lot of times, we encounter situations that require us to move beyond our comfort zone and TRY something unusual, something which intimidates us or something whose outcome we fear. Continue reading

On my recent adventure trip, I had a slight mishap. I was trying some photography at a 15th century Jain temple and while walking towards the center stage area, I could see a black square stone. My focus was on my phone and suddenly I felt the ground beneath me gone missing. Even before I could comprehend what really happened, I was tumbling down through some stairs not knowing how deep the alleged step-well was in which I lost my way.

A quote from a book which got me to tears ‘Tuesdays with Morrie’ by Mitch Albom

A photo I clicked at sunrise 🙂

Less than 48 hours back I was having a throwback moment writing an email to myself after a meditation (I hadn’t planned what I was going to write, I just went with the flow) recalling some funny blooper moments I have had in 2013. I went to the park early in the morning to get some fresh air and exercise, but my mind was preoccupied with thoughts and the work out that I planned for 45 minutes, came to a screeching halt in just 20 minutes as I just couldn’t concentrate! I do a lot of self-talk when no one’s around (I know it sounds silly 😛 ) and I caught myself being gloomy rather than reminiscing.

Journaling – When nothing goes right, go WRITE!

when-nothing-goes-right-go-write.jpg

I remember writing on the very same topic, back in 2015. A lot of times, when my mind feels clouded by thoughts, emotions, worries, and anxiety; when I just can not think straight; and when things are so overwhelming that I either want to give up or feel like I want to cry; I turn to my diary.
