In the journey of life, moments come and go, have you ever wondered, what is more important – the effort or the goal. Or, in other words, is it the journey or the destination? Continue reading
Sometimes, life lessons can come from the most unlikely places. It is strange now when I think of it how as an after-thought so many nuggets of wisdom have come to me in life, those which I cherish and pass on to my son who is going to be thirteen soon. Continue reading
Life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.
It’s a thought that came to my mind this morning while I was about to mark a date in my diary to see my homeopath. Continue reading
“Keep Going. Your hardest times often lead to the greatest moments of your life. Keep going. Tough situations build strong people in the end.” -Roy T. Bennett.
When the going gets tough, I often ask myself, “Why is this happening to me?”. At times, I know I have the answers, mostly I don’t. Continue reading
A little thought for this Monday morning as we begin another working week. Tell me something – What does work mean to you?
Work is life for me – it’s joys, it’s triumphs and disasters leave impact on my life in more ways than I could express. Some of us work to live and others live to work. We spend a lifetime, working. We take so much pride and happiness with what we do, day in and day out, so much so, that for many of us, a major part of our self-esteem is deeply rooted to how our work defines us, eventually making us the person that we are. All this happens irrespective of our day to day conscious awareness of how inextricably tied we all are to the roles assigned to us.
Did you just say, ‘fear of dying’?
Yes, I heard you right. I used to be very scared of death once. Don’t get me wrong. I still do. But, now, it is a different kind of fear.
In fact, this is one thought that has haunted me a lot since childhood. The ‘fear’ factor has kicked in every time I’ve heard someone I’ve known, leave this world. Continue reading
Last Friday, I was woken up by a rather strange dream. It must have been around 3 in the morning. Everything else stood still in those wee hours, except the ticking of the clock. It was difficult to tell if this was real or a dream. I remember telling myself that it must be my instinct, which had crept up to me at odd hours Continue reading
The countdown to the New Year began well ahead of time for most of us. We’ve all been planning to make a fresh new start, get into a fitness routine, drop that baggage, lose weight, get rid of old habits and change old ways of doing things. In short, we’ve all been looking at this time to start everything afresh. Begin a new chapter. When the New Year finally arrived, we were happy to bid adieu to the old and promptly, came out our New Year Resolutions. Continue reading
There are days when we wake up feeling nothing is right with what we do, say or think. We are unhappy being who we are and tend to compare ourselves with everyone else. If we look into the mirror, we see too many flaws and remember too many past wounds and failings to love ourselves unconditionally. In fact, it leads us down a spiraling course of negativity.
Do you have days like that? Continue reading
One of the banes of our present times is the way digital technology has taken over our personal and professional lives. Over the last quarter century, no industry has seen more dramatic change and has had a bigger impact on consumers and businesses than technology.
This change has been nothing short of dramatic. Personal digital technology which was once an add-on to the lives of people and the operations of companies, has today taken centre stage in most people’s lives. Almost everyone we know, is just a few clicks away. Continue reading
