I feel broken and that feeling just isn’t going away easily. I was tough on myself, gave myself a break, took things one step at a time, and tried many other ways to feel better. Yes, I get through the day (not without difficulty) but this is not the way to progress, get the things I want in life, or create happiness in the long-term.Continue reading “Navigating Rock Bottom”
Momentum…The reason I love this word and used it in the title is that this is what makes us. The momentum built of what we do everyday regularly in our lives. It is our habits and lifestyle choices that determine what becomes of us more than anything else. I have been trying bit by bit to make it better. To recognize myself as a person geared for strength and success.Continue reading “How to Live a Day”

For the past week, trying to become an entrepreneur with an actual business has been an emotional rollercoaster for me. One minute, I feel ready to market and deliver everything; the next minute, I think I cannot do this so should just look for my next desk job.
Yes, entrepreneurship is a risky, challenging, and overwhelming feat to take on. But if you really want it, you will accept all that and keep going. Sometimes, I really question whether I accept that or not. But I know the alternative of working the desk job all my life is not what I want. Is that a good enough reason? I won’t give up on this dream and I know I will really regret later in life if I look back and think I gave up opportunities and effort.Continue reading “Lessons for Entrepreneurs I”

Though a better fit for summer, Chana Chaat made a good and light meal for a late Saturday lunch. This is a very traditional Indian/Pakistani snack and appetizer. Quick and simple to make if you have the key ingredients already available at home. But what is the kick? You can vary the ingredients based on your own flavour palette but this snack needs to be spicy and tangy.Continue reading “Chickpeas with a Kick”

Today, I read a list of goals that I made for myself 3 years ago. Yes, I did achieve some of them but 10% success rate is not something I want to give myself a pat on the back for. No, my list of goals was not unreasonably out of reach. I also revisited something I read a long time ago that personifies my results and a story of how many people can live out their lives without question or ambition. A faraway, vague dream to achieve something amazing is not enough.Continue reading “Becoming More”
Puzzles are relaxing and challenging. They are not Netflix or movies. They keep my mind occupied well, challenge me in a different way than the spreadsheets on the job, and also test my motor skills in a different capacity than the keyboard and mouse I am constantly using. If you ask me, adults need more acitivites like this in their lives, to do both solo and with family/friends. Yes, we all say we are too tired after work and chores but it is a really relaxing and soothing exercise, mentally and physically (like reading which I also advocate for heavily). Feels so good after.Continue reading “Scaling the Temple of Heaven”
A personal reflection on living life by the pomodoro technique.
In his introduction to the well-recognized book, The Success Principles, Jack Canfield emphasizes that his principles do work. But he emphasizes: for the principles to work, you have to work the principles! And the secret to success with the pomodoro technique is just that.Continue reading “25 x 25”
My first ever spa retreat! I have had back massages before but a full spa retreat package and the pampering and revitalizing was so new to me. It really was a wonderful day in itself but it also shifted my perception: my head was clearer and more focused in the present moment than it has been for a long time and I got inspired to take even better care of myself.Continue reading “Self Care and the Spa”
