Stay positive, come what may. #SoulfulSunday

It’s tough being positive in the face of uncertainty, when in the midst of adversity. Our mind is such, it is an expert at imagining worst case scenarios, at catastrophizing, at thinking of only bad things happening to us. Rarely does it come up with something positive—a happy image, an encouraging thought, hope, a beliefContinue reading “Stay positive, come what may. #SoulfulSunday”

Losing a pet #SoulfulSunday

Last week, my friend lost her pet dog of eleven plus years. Shourya was a golden retriever, six years younger than Chikoo and also his close friend when he was alive. It’s because of our pets that we girls met one fine day, almost ten years ago. Such a long time ago, but it feelsContinue reading “Losing a pet #SoulfulSunday”

Who inspires me. #SoulfulSunday

Being an artist is as tough as anything else. When you see a work of art and exclaim at its beauty, you fail to recognise the amount of time and effort the artist must have spent dragging themselves to their desk to make it. For, it’s not everyday that the artist must feel energetic andContinue reading “Who inspires me. #SoulfulSunday”

What do you hold in your heart? #SoulfulSunday

“Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.”  —Winnie the Pooh I have still to read Winnie the Pooh, but this line stole my heart. As I read the quote, I wondered about its meaning. Did it mean the little things that we keep bemoaning about, not giving the big pictureContinue reading “What do you hold in your heart? #SoulfulSunday”

Happiness #SoulfulSunday

Happiness is an empty cardboard carton, its sides tearing away, little by little, its original contents lying in some forgotten corner of the house, and its present contents having a whale of a time sitting inside the box, giggling with unbidden joy. That’s the scene I witnessed last week as I walked towards the nearbyContinue reading “Happiness #SoulfulSunday”

What do you fear most? #SoulfulSunday

I pick a T-shirt and a pair of track pants to wear to the nearby shop I need to visit. I get dressed, tie my hair, pick up my purse, phone, keys. I drop the keys in my right pocket and after a minute, or so, check my pocket to be sure I dropped theContinue reading “What do you fear most? #SoulfulSunday”

If life had been a fantasy film. #SoulfulSunday

The cool evening breeze soothes the weariness I have been experiencing since this morning. Last night, I slept late. It was a fitful sleep that saw me tossing and turning for quite a while before I finally got an entry deep into Slumberland. Waking up with a headache and a cranky mood thanks to theContinue reading “If life had been a fantasy film. #SoulfulSunday”

Expedition Happiness

I chanced upon this documentary, Expedition Happiness, on Netflix today. It’s about a couple who sold off all their belongings to set out to travel the world. In a school bus which they turned into a caravan, they along with their dog,  travelled far and wide, to quite a few countries, to experience happiness. TheContinue reading “Expedition Happiness”


What’s your favourite writing place? My ideal writing place would be by a window that provides a picturesque view of a river flowing outside, its waves gently lapping the pebbled banks. Or, maybe a lush garden, with a stream flowing through it, offering the soft background music of the falling water.   My real lifeContinue reading “Imagination.”
