Living For Your Passion and Never Giving Up

Hello! December. Welcome to our life. And help us end this year with great spirit. It is hard to believe that 2017 is going to end in few more days! This year has been a wonderful year to me- in terms of success, learning, inspiring and touching  some lives, and definitely improving myself.
"I want to start today's post with the wish that- may the year 2018 bring more success and happiness to all our lives. May there be more kindness, peace, and understanding all around us. May we succeed in achieving our dream, and in completing our journey of "self-discovery!"
"Success is walking from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm."- Winston Churchill
There's a reason I chose to write on this topic again today- 'passion.' If you have been reading my blog; you will know that I always mention about passion and purpose in my posts. I believe anybody's life can be interesting and/or inspiring (to love and live) by these two driving forces- to live…

How To Go Easy On Yourself While Creating Joy

Life often takes u-turn and dumps you back there- from where you had started to embark on a new journey for yourself- to find peace, joy, and pure happiness; where you never wanted to stay and wished not to come back there again! So what do you do in that situation? Start all over? This happens countless number of times. Isn't it?

Just when we feel everything has finally fallen in place, things start to fall apart. And we get busy putting the (scattered) puzzle pieces together, and this goes on and on. But this is how life is- uncertain, unpredictable, and harsh most of the times- but still beautiful.



Yet despite my best efforts, I find negative situation interfering frequently in my life, but I try to be kind to myself. You can be your best self when you know how to empathize with your self -being. There are certain things that's completely beyond our control; so just be easy with yourself. 
You're super fantastic.
Just Be You!

Decor Inspiration & Ideas-1

With the arrival of winter, I have started spending more time inside the house than being outdoor. I have always been really curious about finding decorations to add to all the rooms; not just to decorate, but also to keep myself motivated and happy all throughout the winter. So in today's post I will share some home/office/work space inspirations you can add to your rooms or "working spaces." How to create some inspiration in every corner of your house- that can speak to you, and that can fill your days and nights with joy and motivation?

Sometimes we don't need expensive items to decorate our house, or make it a 'happy place' to live in. I think decorations that are motivating, inspiring, or colorful can make beautiful decors'.  I also believe if we can hang more positive affirmations; and word reminders that can show the positive beautiful-side-of-life; are more precious than having expensive things.

Reasons Why Failing Makes You More Confident

"I’ve seen that failing has got me new wings of confidence and a great deal of learning, I’ll never get any other way. So I don’t fear failing anymore. " 


The fears of failure sabotage our confidence levels, and we start moving away from our goals. But what if I tell you that; “failing no way makes you a failure, but definitely a confident person!" This came from my experience. I was once nowhere, and by failing again and again in too many phases of my life; I accepted that- "I'm no good." More often than not it still tries to pop its head up to remind me- how many times I have failed in everything in my past? Failure is a very tough word; mighty enough to smack your confidence, and to bring down your faith on yourself. 
But don't stop just because you failed to do something once! Keep trying. Keep dreaming.


But you must be still wondering; why did I even say that, "failing makes you more confident?" Yes, I'm coming to that! Read on to know wh…

Tips To Look Your Best In Wide-Leg Pants

Today I'm going to share few tips on how to style wide-leg pants or palazzos'. Some of these types are also known as flare pants, which were otherwise called as bell-bottoms. These pants are a go-to-style for almost every season.

"Wide-leg pants are my most favorite wears for every day style."  I'm no more slender to don this style with anything; but definitely my long legs help me in styling this piece of fashion, even today-with short tops, long tops, with button-down, or with a over-sized top.

After reading too many styling tips and fashion tricks on, "how to style a wide-leg pant," I came to a conclusion that these pants can be a style statement for most of the body shapes, and for any height.
Classic and simple trend of styling these wide pants may have gone into hibernation; as we started falling for skinny jeans and slim pixie pants. But, all style icons and models have begun creating 'special' space in their wardrobe for this versatile piece…

Embrace Your Present-Self With Grace And Ditch Perfection

Lots of expectations and pressure come with being a woman. And in the midst of so many demands from your partner, family, and society- it's nearly difficult to feel confident; or to keep a positive attitude about yourself or your body.

Few days back, I was browsing through my old pictures. Seeing the young me brought me some sad feelings. For a moment; I felt like, "wish I can look like this again!" The sad part of life is that- we grow, and we 'grey.' We don't remain the same (don't look the same each following day), as we were six or seven years back. Especially after marriage; and most importantly after having kids, a woman's body doesn't look the same any more- for most of us! So be gentle, kind, and patient throughout this process.
If you feel that your beauty is fading, or you don't look attractive anymore; try to look confident,  try to look smart, be graceful, and always keep that smile on your face.
What you keep telling yourself daily w…

Practicing Stillness In Life

The practice of stillness can create ripples of new energy in  your life. A calm mind is the architecture of  success in life.
Turning off your mind and doing nothing is the state of 'being still.' Practicing the discipline of stillness (when life gets too crazy for me) has given me new inner strengths to deal with my 'problems.'

"While writing this post, I was reminded of this annoying (for others during those times!) habit of mine- I would complete all the work that I was supposed to do,  and then would go still, completely still for few minutes before moving on to the next task. I couldn't understand (then), the reason why I used to sit in complete stillness like this? But now when I talk to my past self; I realize that it was my way of dealing with all kinds of stress and complications."


"Being still would calm down my worries, and frustration!
I'm glad this habit has made me more patient and a realized woman."
I still practice stillness in …

Easy Tips To Create Your Sweet Life

A "sweet life" isn't the absence of difficulties, failures, struggles, insecurities, or wanting more." But, a life turns out to be sweet when we are truly alive, we laugh often, we make mistakes, we learn, we start, over and over again, we learn to accept changes and delays, we try to be patient when our plans fail and when our focus changes; life becomes sweet when we practice mindfulness in the daily chaos of our lives, when  we start to focus on what's important, when we create something amazing with the available knowledge and resources, and last but not the least- when we find happiness in the midst of our daily struggles.



I just finished reading this amazing inspiring book by Author Dulce Candy Ruiz. A true life story; where there is struggle, fear, uncertainties,  dream, hope, courage, hard work, positive attitude, and lots and lots of inspiring takeaways. "We must be passionate about what we do, what we want to do, and then do it at any cost." I…
