Day 22: Turned 27​

WOW… I skipped 5 days of my journal and I am back on my birthday. I turned 27 today. All of us have experienced highs and lows. Many a times we feel helpless, sometimes deserving, othertimes incompetent. 27 years, mixbag of cries and smiles, but mine to live and own. I remember a line from…

Day 19: Home

Home. No matter how much fun you had outside, nothing feels as good as getting back home. The moment I reach my apartment, I relax and this feeling is involuntary. In a matter of five months, this apartment has turned into my heavenly abode. I have always loved having an indoor plant and as expected,…

Day 17 :)

As I struggle to decide on what to right, I ask my husband to help me out. Guess what he says? “Write about me, write about how much I love you, how I cook for you, how I always agree with you, how supportive I am and how I am such a good husband”, he…

Day 7: Long distance relationship

The beauty of long distance relationship is a unique one. Sometimes the amount of love they share might not just be enough.

It can be terrible at times, irritating with internet connection problems every now and then,…

Day 5

Sometimes amidst all the chaos of our life, it feels so wonderful to lay back and cherish the good people and good moments in your life.
