I love the words update and upgrade. Probably because they usher in a freshness, something better than before. Like most people, I like to ensure that it is planned. Why? Mostly because depending on what we’re upgrading, it involves an expense and depending on how much, one needs time to organize the funds. Remember I have mentioned home renovations going on around our place? Not in our place, but the neighbors’. As if acting on an invisible pact, one by one they’re revamping their homes. Pulling up the flooring to install a new one, ripping out the windows to install sliding door versions, breaking down walls to expand rooms, tearing down the kitchen to give it the Italian upgrade. And of course, the rather charming red-tiled flooring that covers our corridors is now a dull ash color, what with the foot traffic and the construction material being dragged around. The…

All is well in my world This post is a tribute to Louise Hay, who will live forever in the hearts of those whose lives she transformed through her legacy of wisdom. On 30 August, the world lost one of its most powerful motivators, Louise Hay, author, and the founder of Hay House. She’s known as one of the pioneers of the self-help movement and her blockbuster bestselling book “You Can Heal Your Life” has changed billions of lives. In fact, in one of my health groups, we recommend this book as a healing practice. I love Louse Hay because she teaches how to create more of makes us happy, in addition to mind, spirit and body wellness. It is true we can attract what we want. She did not have an easy life, and is immortal proof that positive affirmations and visualization work. She succeeded in healing herself from…

I’ve always believed that age is but a mere number, and what really matters is one’s attitude. However, every once in a while something happens to nudge that belief, just a little. After all, the truth is, as the years pass, we do age and everyone gets there sooner or later. We just returned from a trip and realized we didn’t have the stamina we had five years ago. Yep, it isn’t easy to accept the fact that growing old is tough. We often tell children that growing up is difficult. And of course, an elderly person will tell you that growing old is not for the weak. New aches and pains pop up as the body breaks down. In the course of things breaking down, new issues show up. The most common problem with growing old is the feeling that you cannot live your life as you once did.…

Nice and tacky title, eh? As we get our various garments in a twist over who should register under the GST—Goods and Services Tax—Act, I know one GST that is mandatory for everyone, age and gender no bar. Gratitude and Service Therapy At least in my book! Mmm. Hmm. I am smiling all the way as I write this gratitude post. Not feeling apologetic for not posting it on Thursday. Not saying June has been an easy month, but as usual, I’ve found that focusing on the things I have always makes life better. I’ve been writing in my gratitude journal every day. Some days, twice. And especially on those days when things looked rather bleak. It has been a month of: losing a good friend lots of time with family having son home for summer great news girlfriend dates cooking, a lot. watching movies with son attending book launches…

Change is a lovely thing. It is great to welcome the sunshine today after the heavy rains we’ve enjoyed the past week. Yes, enjoyed. Mother Nature has her way of taking care of the pollution in the air from Diwali celebrations and oh, how I admire Her for it! I am also enjoying the change in the weather. Pleasantly cool with the hint of impending rain as the sun plays hide and seek with us. Refusing to let the clothes on the line dry fully. Threatening us with a downpour any moment now…keeping us guessing. Everything looks beautiful. Even the usual sights – the road outside our house, the trees, the potted plants trying to hold on to the precious drops of water. Everything. But naturally, change is something we must embrace. When we resist, we suffer. Nature is the best example. Look at what happens when there is a…
