Just a while ago, as I sat clearing my Facebook profile, I found this lovely and inspiring piece of advice floating around on my wall. I surely hadn’t written it but guess had shared it to my page after reading it somewhere for sure.

So as much as it did definitely inspire me then to get a place on my profile, I read it all over again and just had to share it. It resonates SO deeply all because when it came glancing by, I was in the thirties and now in my late forties reading it felt like I…

This is no ordinary ship that’s sailing in the sea. I am talking about the the ship that sails in our life- Relationship and Friendship.

So just like in a ship that sails the flags are up for the world to see, in the ship’s within you, the flags simply need to be hoisted within.

These Green Flags are the ones that indicate emotional maturity as well as ownership of actions.

  • Green Flag # 1

When you are asked if you have the patience and emotional capacity to listen before venting.

  • Green Flag # 2

When there are people to…

It came with habits that you never knew are a foe.

Ding Dong, Ding Dong, Ding Dong!!! The doorbell rings early morning three times in a row. You go up to the door and ask before opening, “Who’s there?” The voice from behind the door comes through- “I’m Anxiety”.

You – “ Do I know you? I didn’t call you; so why are you here?” Anxiety - “I’ve always been living with you and just went for stroll when I got locked outside.”

You – “ I don’t even know you at all, forget remembering you living with me. So why should I let you in?” Anxiety – “ Ok! I…

Warning-Use them with caution.

words have calories too

loads and loads of them

all calculated in the brain

and laid on the mind table

the tongue does the rolling out

of empty calories causing words to be unstable

and fulfilling calories making the words stable

all connected with the human’s heart cable

small words and small bites

don’t cause any harm

the big words and bigger portions

are the ticking trouble makers

like an overload of calories

with a double portion meal

excessive unnecessary talks

cause a mental bloating feel

when small things bring joy

small words add happiness too

like a small sized…

As the sayings go, that before you can have good relationships with other people, you should first have a proper connection with yourself. Thus, it is beneficial to start by making amends with what bothers you and to free yourself from guilt.

It is very essential to tune in to what you want in life and direct your efforts into figuring out what you should do to make it happen. Also, think about what things in your life could drag you down and which ones inspire you.

The universe may provide you with various opportunities, large and small, coming from…

A fresh fruit juice shop serving juice with a message from God.

Today, when I went for my early morning jog, I stopped by at a fresh fruit juice shop known as “God’s Own Juice Shop.” It said, “Serving you sweetness with all my love and blessings.” Now, this was a bit strange to read on a juice corner’s name board, I wondered! Why would a juice vendor give such a message? I thought maybe there is a deeper message hidden in it.

So I casually started talking to the juice vendor, a man in his 60’s who seemed very pious and God-fearing.

Casually chatting up, soon I heard the temple bells…

Just this morning I got invited to a Party! I was jumping with excitement and joy, all eager to finally attend a party after ages, as were all on hold due to this ongoing pandemic.

The invitation was beautiful and all that it had written on top was :

“Dear Geetika,

I would love to have you join me for this beautiful theme party. All details are penned inside.

Can’t wait to hear from you soon.

Your friend,

Galit.”

Before I read inside, I found myself smiling ear to ear…
“It’s after so long that it’s dress-up time and that too…
