Memories from India: Slow days unplugged.

  Hi everyone! How’s it going? If you read my last post, you may already know that i haven’t been feeling quite well since last few days. Well ever since we came back from our India trip and the weather has changed drastically. Some days feel hectic. Others are extremely slow & awfully cold. But who’s to blame? This is the balance of life, not all things in life are supposed to go as planned right? On another note, i am slowly recovering from homesickness. I guess ‘the planets’ had to do something with me feeling quite empty and detached with everything around me. Retrograde really takes my mind for a ride every time it occurs. But again it’s the…

Homesickness & beyond: Life in a foreign country.

  I woke up early today feeling utterly anxious about a lot of different things. I happen to feel like that every now & then, specially when i have quite a few pending tasks but zero motivation to do anything. Since last few days i haven’t been able to sleep or focus on anything, haven’t been able to gather my thoughts either, something that i never had issues with.

It’s a privilege to have a freedom of…

Habit shift: Logging off from the world everyday.

  The flowers outside our apartment have begin to disappear, reminding me of the same time last year when i literally didn’t realize how the summer was over in a blink of an eye. Since wildflowers are the love language i prefer, i wish summer stayed a little longer. But we still have some time left to follow our summer dreams & soak in the sun for a few more weeks. More than being a year of consistently sharing & updating my thoughts and experiences in this space, it’s been an year since my social media binging spiraled out of control for the same reason. Although most of the binging has been quite intentional and positive, which honestly really helped…

I choose to live a slow & simple life. Here’s why!

  Beaded Necklace: Tribal Designs Cotton Handloom Dress/Kurta : Jaypore   Moving to the fastest growing country in the world, I could never really imagine how my life would be. If i have learnt something in all these years staying away from home & family in a world that never stops, it is the importance of slowing down. The stress, the struggles, constant worrying and rushing through life taught me the biggest lesson of life and that is to: Slow Down, live in the moment and not let life pass by in front of my eyes. Where the world around me is driven by the fastest, newest next best thing in every way you can think of, I am so…
