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”

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”

I was glued to my phone for two days just reading this book. It had been a while since I read anything and coming back to something so engrossing reminded me why I love to read so much. In A Beautiful, Terrible Thing, Jen Waite shares her personal experience of finding and investing several years into a perfect, loving relationship and its demise at the hands of a husband who turns out to be a very unfaithful “sociopath”. The book follows two timelines, alternating between the good and bad phases, distinguished by the day she reads one incriminating email. And that too when she was recovering from labour and learning to care for their three-week old daughter! She goes on to find out that her husband continuously had affairs throughout the duration of their relationship.Continue reading “A Beautiful, Terrible Thing”
Cooking for oneself and family is healthy and therapeutic. The process gets me to relax and I know better what we are eating, especially with diet controls needed in the house for sugar and salt. I am not great in the kitchen but I am learning. I am perfecting my knowledge a few recipes and techniques at a time. I love biscotti as a delicious snack with tea or between meals. It was only my second time making biscotti so there were plenty of hiccups. I even tried to make a video to share a part of the process with you but it was too bad to share. Cooking something edible, hopefully also delicious, is important for me and a good source of growth and motivation. I know I will get better at that with time and patience. For now, try and enjoy this recipe.Continue reading “Cranberry Almond Biscotti”
It seems quite counter intuitive. But I picked up the book with this title by Jocko Willink because, as time has passed and I have struggled, I realized this was true. Discipline does not tie us down; discipline creates freedom and more – relief, happiness, achievement.Continue reading “Discipline Equals Freedom”
