Patience Is Everything- A Personal Story

They say that dreams can come true if you really believe in them. Sounds like a vague piece of advice that the internet is throwing at you, doesn’t it? I have this thought almost daily. Sometimes it is strong enough to make me feel “okay, life might not work out the way I want it to and I need to be okay with that.” Is this how rejection feels like? Maybe. Sometimes giving up is the easier way out, life is unfair that way. But what about those times when you achieve something that you had only dreamt of? Isn’t that a wild dream coming true? Doesn’t it mean that you are holding the dream close to your heart (subconsciously) and working towards it (again, subconsciously) , and guess what?  The universe rewards patient hard workers. Now *this* might seem like random advice on the internet, but in hindsight when…

Do Not Let Them Make You Feel Guilty For Taking Out Time For Yourself

All those who’ve been with me on Instagram over the last 2 months know that I plan to focus on mental as well as physical fitness, starting this year. As promised, here I am with my two bits on mental health. I have so much to share with you, but I am not sure where to start from. Learning how to disconnect and tune into some ME-TIME is what I think works for starters, I plan to document my experience with mediation, yoga, social media and trolls, and a lot more later. Do feel free to write in if you want me to address certain topics, I’d be glad to do that. Before I start, I’d like to give some context to this article. I’ve been focusing a lot on disconnecting from the internet. Being a blogger and a digital content writer, this gets difficult. We live in  a world…

Ignoring The Warning Signs- How I allowed stress to take over my life

I’ve always been proud of my multi-tasking skills, and considered my ability to prioritize work as one of my strongest skills. While I enjoyed the confidence and the recognition my skills got me, I forgot to account for the fact that too much of something is harmful in the long run. Allow me to share with you a  personal story about how I let stress take over me. But it isn’t really that simple. To help you understand context, I need to rant a lot more than usual. Bear with me. I could have finished this off with a “Reasons why rest is important” but a story of a personal failure always leaves a better impact (so my Google Analytics tells me about my posts in 2017) Freelancing left me insecure.  Freelancing is tough for a bunch of reasons, all of which depend on one personality trait- discipline. Thankfully I…

5 Minutes To A Happy Life

** This article has been written by Dimple Dhalwani Depression is more common than what you think it is, it’s just  the intensity that makes the difference. Whether it’s been a temporary phase of depression or a long term disease that you’ve been dealing with, let’s admit it, we have all had our low moments. Not convinced? Losing a job, death of a loved one, death of a pet, break ups, all of them make us experience depression in some form. Social rejection, peer pressure, any form of abuse, or even unequal treatment of siblings in childhood can lead on to depression. One thing to note here is that while we realise we are suffering, we do not wan to do anything about it. In fact there are times when we don’t want to accept it either! If we do wish to accept it, we make it an internal struggle and tell ourselves that…

Meditation & Mindfulness And Why Your Mind Needs This Workout

After seeing all the positive energy that he had been spreading all around, I took a chance and requested Pranav Kale to contribute to my webspace. I am extremely pleased to report that he obliged, and I couldn’t have asked for something more powerful and positive to celebrate Women’s Day with all of you. Thank you Pranav. Over to him- I must say that writing this article was a challenge. It really was! I will tell you why, but firstly a bit of introduction. My name is Pranav and I am the Founder of Towards Fulfilment. Through Towards Fulfilment, my intention is to use meditation techniques to empower people to live their lives more mindfully. I am a firm believer that ‘Mindfulness’ has the potential to solve most of the man-made problems in the world. With that mission in mind, I have taught meditation to people suffering from issues like addiction, anxiety,…

ChatRoom #8 – Dimple Dhalwani

Not many know my interest in spirituality and that I’ve slowly been taking an active interest in studying the healing sciences. I’ve met several healers, spoken with a bunch of psychics, also spoken to experts about mental health and the power of positive thinking, and several times been an audience to “science vs spirituality” debates. There’s a lot that remains to be learnt, and while I’m on this wonderful journey, I’m going to share my experiences with some lovely people I meet along the way. First up is Dimple Dhalwani, one of the supremely positive, fun people I’ve come across. We were scheduled for a meeting for 2 hours, and we ended 6 hours later, happily discussing the power of positive thinking over a chicken biryani loaded lunch. Excerpts – Who is Dimple Dhalwani? She is a lightworker, energy healer and a psychic reader. Having started her journey at the tender age of…
