OUR DEEPEST FEAR?

OUR DEEPEST FEAR Poem By Marianne Williamson Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness That most frightens us. We ask ourselves Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You…

Feb 2, 2018

I feel like I’m snorting some of the deadly sins.  My mind’s foggy, especially when I have 5000 things to do, for myself and several people, and as I prioritize myself, I lose touch with what I have to do for others [Clients.] I thought that in 2018, I would have focused on my health…

COMFORT

Happy New Year Everyone! TW : suicide, depression With the new year, comes a refreshed sense of a new beginning; a clean slate. For me that clean slate is leaving home to put a priority on my education and health. I always thought that a Tamil/South Asian girl’s ticket to independence was marriage, or a…

Family – (undefined.)

Family.  What does it mean? To some, an exciting place, where aunties, uncles, cousins, grandparents, moms, dads, brothers, sisters, dogs, cats and chinchillas can all hang out and be happy.  Everyone watches out for each other and genuinely cares about the well being of each person in the circle.  They know when to have fun, and…

FirstBorn.

It’s a very uncomfortable place to be in. The weight of your parents’ expectations, societal expectations paired nicely with the responsibility of being a role model, or setting the standards for younger siblings to meet, fall below, or surpass. You’re expected to be strong, but how long will it take for your “strong” walls to…

NO = SELF-RESPECT.

  During my limited time at York University, I met a plethora of people; a lot of us were sheltered kids being released into the wild YorkU concrete jungle.  A lot of people were able to get used to university-work-life balance.  To me, life just became social-life based. All I really cared about was being…

SOCIAL MEDIA DETOX

Sorry for posting a little later than normal, folks! Just got a little caught up with life.   Let me explain this whole weird “Social Media Detox” thing.  I’m not quite deactivating everything.  I’ll be limiting my use.  I realized I’m so addicted to social media.  That endless scrolling, endless liking, multiple social media accounts…

NO MORE COLLABS.

  I’m currently self-employed. The biggest risk I’ve ever taken was to quit my part-time retail job because they would only schedule me in for weekends; which was prime photography time.  I was getting lazier and lazier, the longer I was at that workplace.  So I did it to make time for my photography work….

RUN OR DIE.

  Sometimes I just want to run away from everything.  My typical toxic South Asian household, is full of women who have a habit of venting out loud about everything we do wrong, while aggressively handling pots and pans. *CLANG* This girl. *CLANG* Lazy. *CLANG* Never cleans her room *CLANG* *Throws a cutlery and pots…
