The last MS Attack of the year (hopefully) and #CAA

We’re a tinder box waiting to explode… Life today has become so increasingly stressful , it barely takes a moment for the world to collapse around us. This week was all about the Citizenship Amendment Act and the violence that ensued. And as much as the violence was terrifying , what was even more scaryContinue reading “The last MS Attack of the year (hopefully) and #CAA”

Fear, MRIs and 5 ams

The stress of or the fear of something often is far larger than the actual task itself. This was at its clearest this week. With the planning of a surprise party, the visit to a new doctor, yet another (though each one is as stressful as the next) MRI and the travel and return travelContinue reading “Fear, MRIs and 5 ams”

Birthday stresses (and no it’s not about just getting old!)

So the birthday rolled around and this one was unlike any other! I’m the quintessential Gemini about birthdays even though I’m a Taurus-Gemini cusp! I plan for the next birthday the evening of the previous one- so I’m that kinda psycho birthday maniac, But this birthday I was a bit more introspective and stressed out-Continue reading “Birthday stresses (and no it’s not about just getting old!)”

Will you Be My Valentine?

I love love. I love being loved. I love the whole feeling of love and I love to love! If there’s one day that means the world to me – it’s Valentines Day! Over the years I have heard the cynics say ‘well love can happen on any day.’ And here’s the thing I agree.Continue reading “Will you Be My Valentine?”

The Exhaustion of Being

  So over a dinner with friends the other evening, it seemed like everyone was suffering the same malady… ‘I’m exhausted!’… ‘Done by 9!’….’Cant’t get out! Don’t even want to!’ The problem, we realised was not age… (despite the snickering yawns) or our jobs even…. it was just mental fatigue and the aversion to justContinue reading “The Exhaustion of Being”

Taking back my strength

It’s play time again for me with The Jury launching this Friday and whereas the word ‘play’ is rather misleading – this is probably the time of maximum stress for me, least fun and no time! Theatre is however an absolute addiction for me… else there would be no possible reason for me to almost cause ulcersContinue reading “Taking back my strength”

I make my own happy.

In a world where we consistently look outside for our happiness, our love, our security and even our stress… it was a wonderful realisation that I came to when I realised I had complete control of how I made myself feel. I could feel successful, happy and a winner or feel stressed, worried and alwaysContinue reading “I make my own happy.”

i FEAR!

Fear. We sell fear. We buy fear. We live in fear. We wake up in the mornings and the newspapers scare us. Where we live is unsafe, what we’re eating is wrong, what we’re doing will destroy us…we wake up to fear. We then go to work, fearing the repercussions of a boss who mayContinue reading “i FEAR!”

No time? Why?

‘ I have no time,’ a constant complaint from all of us. ‘I can’t believe where the day /week/ month / year went!’ It went. And you were there. But you weren’t actually present. We’re always so busy. But busy achieving what? We spend less time with family and friends. We are divided between dutiesContinue reading “No time? Why?”

The ‘OTHER’ voice inside of me!

So the end of the 2012 started with a chill, cold and a God awful fever! The Hallmark generated excitement of a New Years Eve was suddenly torn to shreds by tissues, warm water and phlegm , not to mention the most incredible migraine was creating a resounding thudding sound in my head was notContinue reading “The ‘OTHER’ voice inside of me!”
