18 Things I’ve Learnt From My Love-Hate Relationship With My Mom

Maybe everyone has this weird love-hate status quo with their mothers, but I’m just going to talk a little bit about how I absolutely adore mine. In the beginning, right during the mutant (teenage) years, she was my enemy. A little before that she was my favorite person in the world (yes, she beat my dad to it) and my entrance into adulthood introduced me to how human she is (just like me). 28 years in, I am still baffled at how much I love my mother. And I don’t mean in the overtly mushy, K3G way. I mean in…Continue Reading

19 Things You Know To Be True If You Have A Younger Brother

Well, well. My mother tells me of a childhood instance when she’d taken my brother and me to a photo studio to have us clicked in traditional attire. I happened to glare at the photographer because he kept making my baby brother cry by constantly repositioning him for the perfect frame. (There is actually a photograph of me glaring at the guy behind the camera as proof.) I am the elder sister in our equation. My brother is two years younger to me and our graph of bonding, over the years, shows a definite hike. Living with a younger sibling…Continue Reading

21 Powerful Affirmations That Will Connect You To Your BEST Self

“An affirmation is a phrase that reinforces positive beliefs or behaviors.

19 Things Everyone Deserves In A Relationship

As children, we watched a lot of movies that told us what love looked like. There would be the chase and then the girl would shyly agree and there would be all the regular marriage jazz. The same pattern was repeated in movie after movie. We knew what to expect and how to behave if we are to encounter ‘love’. Sadly, we were taught a lot of CRAP. Our first love wasn’t half as pretty as they made it look onscreen. We’ve probably dated a few douche-bags (I know I have) and understood there are things we CANNOT overlook when…Continue Reading

19 Things You’ll Relate To If You Just LOVE To Sleep

My one true BFF loves to sleep. And I don’t mean it in the demure ‘like’ sense. It mean it in the ‘LAAAVVVV’ sense. She can snooze, cuddle with her pillow, and snooze again, on repeat. If you told her she’d get a week off from work, the first sentence she’d utter would be, ‘Thank god, I can sleep peacefully now! While I may not get her obsession with sleep, I do know a lot of people out there set up their alarms a good hour prior to their actual wake-up time. Just to enjoy the constant satisfaction of returning…Continue Reading

How My Worst Breakup Taught Me Life’s Most Important Lessons

I won’t lie. I wouldn’t want to relive the first half of 2016. It was the worst blow my heart’s taken in a long time, but to be honest if I was given a choice to erase that year out of my existence, I wouldn’t. Because no matter how messed up the first half of it had been, it was one of my favorite years in the almost-30 stint I am heading towards. I am assuming we’ve all been through a breakup that’s opened a gap within the center of our chests with constant pain spilling out. And mine was…Continue Reading
