Thoughts and Feelings

It’s hard sometimes. Well it sure feels like it. The critique in me criticizes every single thing I do or think and even feel.  My writing is non existent these days save for my notepad in this phone. And a little bit in my other notebook. Maybe I am a closet writer as my […]

Instant Gratification Syndrome

“How many likes did you get?”. How many positive comments on your page? How many views did you get? How many followers do you have? Our lives nowadays are so fast paced in that we no longer have or make the time to make contact and see the person in front of you. Our moments… Continue reading Instant Gratification Syndrome

A page from my diary: And the journey continues

It’s funny how we (well I) go through life unaware of all the signs that one gets from beyond and all around. Is that what ignorance is? I mean…,Dear God have I been blind?! When I sit and recall the moments I remember when clear signs and warnings were sent my way, I simply brushed… Continue reading A page from my diary: And the journey continues

Mindful Monday: Pray with intention

This thought came to me as I was about to do my night prayers… “Pray with intention”. As you know, I do not belong to any religious group, instead I consider myself more of a spiritual person.

Mindful Monday: Self-talk

This is a difficult topic for me as I’m almost always guilty of negative thoughts towards myself. Ever since childhood, I’ve been prone to self judgement and even went as far as self-hurting (physically), so I could do and say things the correct way next time. When you sit and think to yourself, what kind… Continue reading Mindful Monday: Self-talk

Mindful Monday: Finding Inspiration

What is inspiration? The Merriam-Webster dictionary has a few definitions by my favourite is this one: a divine influence or action on a person believed to qualify him or her to receive and communicate sacred revelation. After reading this, I then asked myself who seeks inspiration and for what reason? Google couldn’t answer this. So… Continue reading Mindful Monday: Finding Inspiration

Mindful Monday: Being mindful of your thoughts

This is a new segment I’m hoping will become a regular feature and continue for a long time to come. I’ve come to find that the manner in which you start your day, pretty much determines how your day will go. For instance, when you get that hug from your beloved or a call/text from… Continue reading Mindful Monday: Being mindful of your thoughts
