How to be single 

The time we have to be single is really the time we gotta get good at being alone. But how good at being alone do we really wanna be? Isn’t there a danger that you get so good at being single and so set in your ways that you will miss out on a chance to be with somebody great?

Some people take baby steps to settle down. Some people refuse to settle at all. Sometimes it’s not statistics, it’s just chemistry. Sometimes just because it is over, doesn’t mean love ends.

The thing about being single is “you should cherish it.” Because in a week or a lifetime of being alone, you may only get one moment. One moment when you are not tied up with a relationship with anyone; A parent, a pet, a sibling, or a friend. One moment when you stand on your own, really truly single and….then it’s gone.

When faith is shaken


I faced an emotional upheaval today after learning that someone very close to me, has been deeply hurt, emotionally and physically. Like any human even we(our family) faced hardships, some of which still need to be sorted out. I have read this post somewhere few years back “why do bad things happen to good people?” Ethically how can you describe yourself as a good person anyway? It’s a difficult question isn’t it? But forget me, my parents have done nothing wrong to anyone but give love, happiness and help but we are always being tested for our good. The more we endure the more we are being hurt or given more challenges. And there is a tolerance level for everything, I lost it today. I was mad and started crying. The last time I felt this kind of pain was when I lost my grand pa. Then I remembered Stephen hawking, one of the most intelligent person on the planet right now, has been cursed with AML. If he or his family gave up on him, he wouldn’t have discovered Hawking radiation or developed theories about time. Also John Nash, he dint let his illness get in the way of his noble peace prize. I could name a lot of artists, scientists etc who dint let their illness get in the way of their success. Then I realised I’m not the kinda person who loses faith or gives up easily.

I wish I could go back and try to do something to correct this but whatever happened isn’t my fault or anyone’s fault. It’s fate! Something that you gotta step up and deal with! At times like these your loved ones need your support, love and most importantly you need to be strong in order to fight these demons. If anyone is facing a bad situation today, remember faith is power, It can move a mountain. There is nothing that you cannot face and yes eventually it will all be good. 🙂

I thought of you today!

“I thought of you today, but that is nothing new. 

I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. 

I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. 

All I have are memories and a picture in a frame. 

Your memory is a keepsake, from which I’ll never part. 

God has you in His arms, I have you in my heart. ❤ ” Miss you grandpa 😞

Home is Haven 🏡

I recently took a short summer vacation to visit my hometown which is near the coast. The last time I visited, was 6 months ago. So I really needed some family bonding time and a personal get away near the ocean. I had the most amazing time as usual. I was able to unwind and travel to new places nearby. For the first time, I dint go alone. My cousins accompanied me for my new ventures. We have been to the light house at the tallest hills in the city, few undiscovered beaches away from the city and for the 3rd time in my life to an estuary.

   I must say estuaries are one the most beautiful places where ocean lovers must visit. We were literally deserted in the area which is kind of nice as I prefer the least populated beaches.

The estuary has provided habitat for many fish nurseries. Part of the bank was besieged by fishermen 👳🏽huts with their splendid canoes. A few of ’em boated down for fishing🎣. The midsummer sunlight dispersed through the estuary made it resplendent, while I basked in it.🌞😎I was able to envision few gliding fishes🐟, lots of seagulls🐦, godwits, eagles and herons. I rode on a canoe 🚣🏼 from the bank to the sea. We also took a closer look by having a long walk by the bay🌊🐚, listening to the waves. I missed diving though. One of the best nature therapies I had in a long time. We did trekking in some parts.

Also visiting the light house at the Dolphin hills was exhilarant. I was born in this city but we have never been to this place, so I guess it was a long overdue. Viewing most of the ocean (Bay of Bengal), the ship harbor, the city, the hills🌄,the trees🌴, the azure sky and the sunset 🌅was eye-popping. I was enthralled by what nature had to offer. Vizag is still recovering after cyclone hudhud.

I visited my kith and kin after a long time. Our natter lasted with joy and laughter. We reminisced our childhood and our lost grandparents. Not to forget, my favorite food mom prepared for me everyday, the petty fights and laughter I shared with my sister 👭& parents👨‍👩‍👧‍👧, watching our favorite television together was a convivial atmosphere. Time has shortened everyday, I dint realize 2 weeks were done in a blink. 😞 Oh! well career calls but these memories are preserved. I’m grateful to God for this vacation. 😇

Happy Place 🌌


What is your happy place? 😊 If anyone asks you that question what comes to your mind? Just having this thought gives me a good feeling ❤️. There is peace within. My happy place is the one at “dahican beach”. When I visited the place alone, I was fortunate enough to blend in with some Europeans who came for a visit as well as the amazingly hospitable locals. There was the beach, the starlit sky, the guitar one of the locals played and the bonafire. Some folks danced. I remember walking to the farther end of the beach listening to music watching the starlit sky. I fell asleep listening to the waves. The whole experience is idyllic. My happy place is this stupendous reality that looks like a prodigious fantasy.

Happy new year 2015 💃

2014 was indecorous, hectic but on the bright side I got a new job. I had a fun and productive year, had one of the best New Year’s Eve, though I missed my family. Cheers to the good and the bad. Even though I can’t pride talk my life right now. I love the fact how God looks after me each year. I am grateful for everything that happened and things that dint work out. All good memories will be remembered. 😊
