The time of our lives.

I had an epiphany this afternoon. It wasn't a particularly extraordinary afternoon; it was in fact one of those mundane, lowly ones. I was driving home after a gruelling  8 hour ER shift and the traffic was uncommonly horrendous. I had to wait full hog at every one of the nine, painfully long traffic signals... Continue Reading →

Born this way.

I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition. Hello folks. Aah, I loathe to admit that these wise words aren't my own; they belong to... Continue Reading →

Surprises our heads hide.

How would you feel if you woke up feeling different everyday? Not knowing if you wanted to wake up and burst forth and head to conquering all in sight, or cower and wilt and wither away to oblivion under a large rock. There are days when you want to shine bight like the corona. And... Continue Reading →

You wake up. You head to the bathroom. You are pissed at yourself for not waking up early. You will now be... Continue Reading →

The choices we make.

  A decade or so ago, I thought I was invincible. Fresh out of high school, I was ready to conquer all in sight. Dreams without confines. Unadulterated confidence. Self- belief; unmarred with doubt or fear. I truly believed that life was about choices. That we chose our paths and hence are masters of our... Continue Reading →

Recap Thursday- Synthesizing Happiness?

This past week has been so boringly mundane that it would be a waste to dedicate an entire blog post to it. Nothing dramatic or spectacular came about. All the holiday excitement sort of fizzled out and normality took over with gusto. Ramadan already seems like a distant memory. But life- changes are in store.... Continue Reading →
