Is ‘Life Hacking’ Creating a Generation Of Deluded, Entitled, Lazy F***ers?

Before a seething mob of butter-in-coffee drinking, Tim Ferriss fanboys come and (ever-so-efficiently) burn me at the stake at the next TED conference – allow me to pin my colours to the mast, with regards to the 21st century online phenomen...

Love Someone? Tell Them! Pissed Off At Someone? Tell Them!

Love someone? Tell them. They may not even reciprocate, but you shouldn’t speak such sacred words with a sneaky agenda of hearing it back. It should not be self-serving. You should say it because it’s true and every part of you feels it...

7 Things You Should Avoid When You’re Feeling Down/Miserable

I’ve been in somewhat of a dark place for the past month. The Christmas/New Year period was brutal to me and things in my life certainly did not go as I hoped that they would. Shit happens, as William Shakespeare once said (probably). I’m not wr...

Peace and Joy

I am praying and thought I would just reach out and share some thoughts. Eternal life is to know God. Knowing God creates an awareness of Him present in all things, as our Sovereign Lord and dear Friend. To gain this awareness brings a thrill of jo...

Night Lizards

I really miss blogging. I miss getting to really write, not just dash something off on the go. I know this is just the season of life I am in, too many offline demands. And I love this season of life. I am writing this by after nursing my little Drea...

Life Insurance is for Everyone

Life insurance is something we don’t think about much. It is a policy which is tucked away in some remote corner of the house. Many a times it is accompanied by a fear based message. After doing an exercise with Exide Life Insurance I realized...

Are You Spending Time With People Who You Don’t Like? WHY?

I’m experimenting with a healthy new tradition before bed time (no, not that one) – I watch a short comedy before I sleep. I can get quite consumed by a lot of sad stuff and social injustices that appear on my newsfeed during the day so it...

Lead Me Not Into Temptation

This is just a quick thought to ponder that I am currently pondering: "Lead me not into temptation" This, as I am sure most of you know, is a line from the Lord's prayer, Jesus' prayer he taught the disciples as an example of how to p...

Crying For The First Time in Three Years

I’d certainly put myself in the ‘sensitive’ category. In fact, I’ve had to work on myself over the years for being too oversensitive as it’s negatively affected my life, personal happiness and relationships. I’ve l...

Breaking All Records

I do not quite know what to make of 2015 in the first 15 days. On the first day itself my car got a new scratch and a check that I received for a blogging assignment was mildly torn.  I am hardly sentimental towards my car, but I am quite sentimenta...

December Travel Musings

I was feeling very grumpy the other day. I don’t know what triggered it. I usually don’t sulk. And yet I sat looking at bright sunshine and sulking badly. After a while my thoughts went to the travels this year and with a start I realized...

A Crowded Room Can Be the Loneliest Place in the World

“Do you ever get lonely?” This is one of the most common questions I get asked regarding my lifestyle. And it makes perfect sense that this is the question on the lips of loved ones, and people who I meet on a regular basis.   I le...

5 Reasons I Did Not Quit my Job to Travel

It seems to be the flavor of the decade to quit the job to travel! It may work for some and it may not work for some. I belong to the second category. I do think of quitting but it is not to follow my passion. I am able to travel right now. So why [.

13 years …

13 years … Sometimes I just can’t breathe if I think about it for too long. Not only is it the towers, but in remembering the landscape when it was possible to walk on the landfill beach at the edge of the Hudson where it felt more li...

Getting Out of a Problem

I left office a little early today, and took one of the two main routes I can take to reach home - the one that had to cross an intersection of 5 roads into a small circle. As happens at times, I got caught in a traffic tangle at this junction and ha...

What Do You Want People To Say About You When You Die?

Grim Reaper breathing down your neck? Pearly gates of heaven? A thousand virgins? Reincarnating into a fire-breathing, ninja squirrel? Let’s just leave the afterlife semantics aside for the sake of this hypothetical question. When the day comes...
