Without Fear and Without Hate!

With the beginning of the new academic year it is so easy to get lost in all the school work coming you way or just the pressures of life even when you are not a student. However, the one thing we all have to remember is to make time for ourselves. It is so hard…

Rinse and Repeat!

Ever thought to yourself, “I have got over whatever I was dealing with and I think I am finally ready to be happy” and then out of nowhere all the feels that you had felt about that particular situation come back? That is what the path to happiness also entails, sometimes taking 3 steps back…

Rise from your failures!

I grew up in a family where failure was not an option. You worked so hard that you had no option but to succeed, that can get tiring very quickly. The one thing that I have learnt over the years that I will never forget is what failure has taught me…how to stand back up…

Expect Nothing, Appreciate Everything!

Heartbreaks are a huge part of everyone’s lives. Whether it be the heart break of a romantic relationship, a friend or a family member… they exist in everyone’s lives. However, if there is anything I have learnt over the past few months on my journey to finding my “happy” it is that one cannot let…

Let it go – it isn’t just a annoying song!

I can’t begin to think of the number of times I have heard the song “let it go”, but what I do remember is that everytime I heard it I would get very annoyed at how catchy it was. I have come to realize that that song from Frozen is really just a lesson to…

Love yourself enough!

I’ve been following the “Never Give Up” campaign that Jared Padalecki is a huge part of creating and I am so proud of the great things it is doing. Something Jared posted this week really made me think. He posted “today I am good enough” and that for certain reasons really resonated with me. On…

It’s a rough journey to being happy.

Sometimes the journey to finding our “happy” is extremely tough! In that time I totally agree that it is so hard to stay positive. It is extremely difficult to go through life, “faking it till you make it”. Sometimes you just have to let the emotions flow. I read somewhere recently that “emotions are like…

People will be people!

So like many others, I too went back to work this week after a nice break for the holidays. However, what struck me the most was how we as a people of this world have become more and more distant from the way we should treat each other. I see so many people not care…

Harry Potter made me happy!

I first started reading the Harry Potter series in 2000, almost 16 years ago! However, I used to get so engrossed in every book. I would feel like I was a part of everything happening and would spend hours a day reading. Those were the books that helped me realize how powerful reading and imagination…

Invictus- why it is inspiring

As I have continuously written, your happiness is up to you to create. However, since many of us use the new year to make changes in our lives, here is a poem that I have read in times when I felt in need of inspiration. My favorite part of the poem Invictus by William Henley,…

New Year, New Me!

We are all probably thinking that, but do we really need to wait for the New Year to make a change in ourselves that we truly want? I say NO! You know yourself best and that means you know how to be the best version of “You”. As I scrolled through my social media ¬†on…

Keeping yourself in check! Self-reflexiveness is a thing!

I never thought that I would stop writing on here for as long as I did. I have always used writing as a way of letting out stress that has been on my mind, but I think I have spent the last year being very self-reflective. The word Self-reflexive was literally not part of my…
