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.

God Bless You

Some gestures, however small they might seem – are so special. To me, one such gesture is when someone tells me “God Bless You”. It makes my heart skip a beat and really pulls a string in my heart.

Two Ingredient Vegan Icecream – Does it work?

Last weekend, I binge watched some YouTube recipe videos and came across this vegan ice-cream recipe. Just like the Pinterest DIY projects, some of which would translate to an epic wastage and kitchen blow ups, I was apprehensive if this recipe works, so I set to work on putting it to test this week.

My Toastmasters Journey. . .

Sharing a presentation I made after I completed my 10 speeches towards my Competent Communication manual of Toastmasters International (TMI). I got awarded my CC Pin in the last meeting.

After a long time, I won for ‘Best Evaluator’ and ‘Best Humorist‘ (for my TableTopics speech delivered on the topic ‘Have you lied to your parents about your exam grades’).

Some thoughts, beliefs, and ideas draw such a vicious cycle in our minds that the harder we try not to think about them, like suppressing a spring; the stronger they bounce back. I too was caught up in one such thought cycle recently where I struggled NOT to think of a particular thing, but the more I focused on NOT thinking the thought, it only grew stronger in my subconscious.

H-O-M-E

To me, home isn’t a place; being home is a feeling. I don’t know if I can articulate it perfectly, but home to me is love and warmth. It is the feeling of going back to people who love and care about you and who you can’t wait to see. And it isn’t just the feeling when you’re away from home living in a different city/country and visiting your family. It is in the routine and the mundane everyday.
