A few months back, right before Coronavirus hashtag switched to that of “Quarantine”, I went to the 3-day motivational women conference “RISE” organized by “The Hollis Company” co-founded by Rachel Hollis. I’m very grateful and lucky to have been able to attend it during a tricky time right before the peak of Covid. I had work that day and hadn’t been working long at that job, and therefore had decided I didn’t want to take the risk of angering my superiors. But it was meant to be and therefore I was bound to casually mention it to my brother, who picked up on it and said to me determinedly- “You should go. It could change your life. Take 2 days off work. If you’re worried about expense, I’ll pay for your ticket.”Continue reading “The Motivational Game-Changer”
It actually does, doesn’t it? Everything that we see in social media, the seemingly all time highs , the happy and smiles and poses and outfits and sunshine and food and restaurants and well the list goes on and I don’t even need to add all of them here because I’m sure you already know.
But here’s the funny part- if someone goes to my social media page, they will find the same, fluffy stuff, where I posted a happy picture the day after I spent the night before, crying until dawn. Why do we do even do that? Why can’t we tell the world when we are going through a hard time instead of only focusing on the “good” things?Continue reading “It all seems too easy”
We don’t develop courage by being happy every day. We develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity.

I had written this short fictional story for a class assignment. The story is very basic to be honest. But I want to use this story as a simple concept of a type of event that can change the way we look at life. How much we are able to appreciate it. How much we can empathize with those around us. The things we can achieve when we tackle all problems together as a community with an assertive and positive mind. How we instinctively react when someone around needs help, no matter how small or big. How are we contributing to a situation? Are we willing to go out of our way to help the people around us who need it? Well, let’s find out.
It was Thursday night. I was working late alone in the office, preparing for a presentation that was due the next day. Outside a slight breeze was blowing, inviting a perfect cool atmosphere to work in. I continued my work steadily as the hours moved on. Suddenly an earsplitting scream penetrated the air from somewhere below and I froze. Instantly I was by the window and a devastating sight met my eyes.Continue reading “The Survival”
This short story is close to my heart. I had written it back when I was doing my Bachelors hence the points mentioned in the end are privy to my thoughts during that period of my life. The location is original and based on the place where I grew up and incidents are based on true experiences, but not necessarily in one day and in the same order. The aims and goals expressed in the post are something I’m still working on achieving as a habitual entity, but hope to master completely someday. But in the meantime, I hope this post helps us all including myself, to remember to always be grateful for what we have.Continue reading “A Car Ride of Reflections”
