Try to be your own best instead of someone else’s.

Your race is not with someone else, it’s with you. Do something awesome and then try to do it better. That’s how you become world class. That’s how you achieve excellence.

#throwback to the Jaipur trip last year.

Just met this amazing @furballstory crew at the airport.
.
When I talked to them. They said they were helping people out, who were in stress due to delayed or missed flights with the help of these therapy dogs.

A thought I’ve been pondering on-  What if the past, the present and the future are occurring simultaneously? All at once. The future is already there in our mind. Sometimes these transverses cross and that’s why we have deja-vu?


What I’m listening to —

Let me down slowly By Alec Benjamin

This song has been doing rounds in my evening playlist from past couple of days! It’s kind of a song that has the right kind beats but lyrics invokes the emotion that doesn’t feel right.


Quote I’m pondering on lately – 

“What makes you different or weird—that’s your strength.”

— Meryl Streep


Until Next Saturday!

Creation is the best way to self-contentment!

Creating something is a completely different pleasure than just being joyous, It takes your joy and makes it jump out of the airplane to sky dive. That’s what you feel after you create something you feel proud of. This article takes you back to the question – why to create? Read on for an interesting piece.

A trick I learned recently  —If you are on a Mac and don’t have the fancy touchbar on your old mac and wondering how to access emojis via keyboard? Just press Control+Command+Space! Voila! You can buy me a double shot espresso. (Now go and read the article below! Probably you don’t really know what an espresso is? No really! Even I didn’t know what it exactly meant except that it sounded cool. Probably you know, but still, read the article for the heck of it!)


Article I’m pondering on —

What Is Espresso?

Like I said above I didn’t know what it meant, until recently. I always thought it’s black coffee, but it’s not. It’s something else. Read on to know.

“If you want your life to be a magnificent story, then begin by realising that you are the author.”

Post of the week –

Life you really want comes with discipline, consistency and self-compassion, always!

Again one of my initial days article. I wrote it for myself, because I wanted to create something everyday, since that time I have more or less created something everyday. Read for a dose of motivation if you need it right now.

Coffee and shelter!

It was raining. Hard.
We were all drenched.
.
Everything was on a halt. The city, the transport and the life itself.

We were thinking what place we can go to, to be safe and get away from the heavy down pour…..

Coffee and shelter! . It was raining. Hard. We were all drenched. . Everything was on a halt. The city, the transport and the life itself. . We were thinking what place we can go to, to be safe and get away from the heavy down pour. . After thinking for a while I said, lets check if our cafe (the usual place) is open. . In the hope of finding shelter we waded through the water and crossed a few streets. . To our lucky surprise the cafe was the only place which was open. We were relieved. I looked at her and we both smiled. . We entered the cafe all dripping water from our clothes. . Just two customers were there, few servers and then some. . We were happy that we were safe, we went to the end, the couch setting. It was not the usual place we sat at. But we could recharge our phones to let people know that we were safe and then the coffee came. . Good things happen in most unthinkable circumstances. Sometime back we were worried about survival and now we were having this comforting cuppa joe. . I clutched her hand tight and our hearts smiled as we sipped the coffee. . Life is such, a cup of coffee ☕️ after a rain storm. . . #coffee #story #rain #mumbai #love

Article I’m pondering on  —

If There’s No Light At The End Of The Tunnel: QUIT

Quitting is difficult, let it be a job or a relationship or a project which is leading nowhere. The more important part is when to quit, sometimes you just get carried away. This article from Darius goes deep into this topic and “Don’t settle for mediocrity” it suggests. Good Read.


 What am I Listening —

No Diggity / Thrift Shop By Ed Sheeran feat. Passenger

I got introduced to the singer Passenger when Ed Sheeran shared this song long back. I immediately fell in love with this song and listened to it gazzilion times that day onwards. But then it faded away after some years, recently I stumbled upon it and felt like being 5 years younger.


Quote I’m pondering on lately – 

“There is only one person who could ever make you happy, and that person is you.”

Emotions are the key to courage and alive!

I wrote this article in 2014 and reading it in 2018 it still makes sense and I’m amazed to rediscover my own writing. This article talks about emotions and how they can be channelized to do greater things.

What I’m listening —

I can’t go on without you! By Kaleo

Found this amazing piece recently. It will not hit you straight but will slowly grow on your nerves. Preferably listen on headphones.


Quote I’m pondering on lately – 

“Wisdom cannot be imparted. Wisdom that a wise man attempts to impart always sounds like foolishness to someone else … Knowledge can be communicated, but not wisdom. One can find it, live it, do wonders through it, but one cannot communicate and teach it.”

—Siddhartha (The book by Hermann Hesse)
