Saturday Spotlight: Week 1 Of May 2023
I have been rereading my older posts lately and it made me realize just how much I used to love doing weekly wrap up posts as well. There’s something about looking back on the week that feels inspiring and motivating. And so I’ve decided to start these weekly wrap ups again, with a not-so-original spin: welcome to my first Saturday Spotlight: Week 1 of May 2023!Continue reading “Saturday Spotlight: Week 1 Of May 2023”

What To Do When You Feel Overwhelmed
Have you ever been in a situation where you have all these plans laid out to get things done one by one, but then an unexpected crisis comes along and completely throws you off track? Suddenly, too many things are happening too quickly, and you wish there was a pause button so you could just take a moment to breathe. It’s easy to lose sight of yourself when you feel overwhelmed…and for the past couple of weeks, that’s how it has been for me.Continue reading “What To Do When You Feel Overwhelmed”
Return From Hiatus + Updates And Confessions
After months of disappearing, I am back (again) and super excited to start sharing posts in this tiny little corner of the internet that I own.

Struggling With Anxiety: Things I Do To Cope With It
For as long as I can remember, I have always had crippling anxiety, even as a small child. But of course, back then, I could not understand it for what it was. And in the kind of society and culture that I live in, mental health issues are still a taboo topic and widely misunderstood.
It took me many years, but finally, in 2020, I began to actually work through my problems. And while I often feel like my family refuses to see my progress, I have noticed the changes within myself, the peace that I feel now, and I know that I am coping better every day.Continue reading “Struggling With Anxiety: Things I Do To Cope With It”
Your Patience Is Your Power: Lessons From My 20’s

There was once upon a time, (not very long ago) when I thought that by this age I would have been married, held a top position in a reputed company, probably done with my master’s, maybe settled abroad, and definitely with one child if not two.
Let’s take a moment while I laugh at my younger self.Continue reading “Your Patience Is Your Power: Lessons From My 20’s”
Hello 2022: We’re Gonna Be Just Fine!
The past year while I tried to learn how to balance my work life with my personal life, I watched my sister practice something that she referred to as “manifesting”. Now, I am no expert on the topic, but from what I understood the gist of it was this: if you truly believe with every fiber of your being that good things are coming your way, then the universe will align itself to make it happen for you.Continue reading “Hello 2022: We’re Gonna Be Just Fine!”
