Failure. It’s something that most of us fear. And rightly so. It’s in our nature to want to be good at something, to get approval on what we do, and to be successful. But here’s the thing. To be good at something, you have to be bad at it a couple hundred times. To get […]
This little plant is proof that the most incredible growth happens when you’re in the toughest situations.
Newsfeeds are flooded with everyone’s Top Nine most liked Instagram photos. And I have to agree, it’s a cool way of looking back on the year and the biggest moments of 2018. But not all my big moments are on Instagram. And what’s important to me didn’t necessarily rack up all the likes on social […]
You might be affronted by that heading, but if you go look at your recent chats, you’ll quickly see that the full stop, a once undisputed part of communication, is becoming redundant. Primarily used to indicate the end of a sentence, it is now either being replaced by new things like line breaks, single speech […]
Don’t you just hate it when you’re in such a good mood and one person can ruin your whole day? That happened to me recently, and I realised there’s an easy way to avoid that.

I always say I want to go hiking. I always say, we need to go there. I always end up saying it, again and again, but the mountains remain unconquered and the trails remain undiscovered. Until this year. I decided that I will go hiking. I decided we should go there. And I’m doing it.
This is something I learnt/realised this year, and unfortunately it only comes with age and life experiences. As a teenager/young adult I would observe my mother’s behaviour and vow never to react the same way, or get upset about the same (seemingly unimportant) things. Now that I’m older, I realise I do things differently and […]
Be grateful. It seems like something that’s so obvious to do and yet it happens so seldom. For example, you wake up, fit as a fiddle, healthy with good food to eat right there in your kitchen and a spring in your step, yet you don’t appreciate it. Then. One dat you wake up with a […]
