5 Ways I Beat the Blues: #MondayMusings #MondayMotivation

I'm not … Continue reading 5 Ways I Beat the Blues: #MondayMusings #MondayMotivation

Valuing Our Loved Ones Before We Lose Them: #MondayMusings

Why is it that we value people a lot more after they have died? I wonder why do we realise their importance only after they are gone, and not when they were around? Why is it that we regret not having spent quality time or more time with them? Or being 'nicer' or kinder to … Continue reading Valuing Our Loved Ones Before We Lose Them: #MondayMusings

It wasn't written in the stars that every January would come carrying with itself a bouquet full of roses, and leave us enchanted. Or was it?
