While On a Healing Break…

“I think that I find a lot of my healing out in the world.”

 Amanda Lindhout

I stepped downstairs one evening, after weeks of resting at home. A soulful conversation over lemon-grass ginger chai, cookies and peanuts with a dear friend, lifted my spirits.


Went for my walk after a longish hiatus, and this sight of a dear friend and a seven year-old was heart-melting


Aarshia, my eleven-year-old’s tryst with the camera makes me joyous. The cover photo is hers too.

While On a Healing Break…

These are just a few snippets from my healing break. I’m not sure if I’m back yet. I’m taking over from Esha this week, as she is swamped with an urgent situation. 

Meanwhile, my healing continues. And I’m glad to be sharing with you few snippets from my healing journey.

I was in Bombay, the city of dreams, last weekend, catching up with my closest friends. My bestie spoke about this fantastic quote, over copious cups of tea in her lovely balcony;

“Change Your Perspective.”

It came to her during the course of an early morning dream, when the subconscious mind is at it’s conscious best.

This fabulous quote made me sit up and wonder, opening out a whole new vista. I started looking at people and situations that were demanding, or different from my expectations with love and wisdom. And I believe staying with this quote is helping re-invent myself.

What do you think of this quote? Do you believe in changing your perspective? How do you think it might help you; or not? Would love to have you bounce your thoughts off me.

Have a brilliant, rest of the week!

  1. Those really are the wisest words spoken. We cannot change the world. But we can certainly change our perspective to accommodate the world!
    That tea-picnic is so adorable. Hope you have a restful break.

    1. Thanks Tulika. It’s been a good break, and I’m beginning to have withdrawal symptoms. Lol!
      But nice to be blogging a bit. 🙂
      I’m blessed to have a wise friend.<3

  2. How’s your healing journey going, Natz? I hope you’re feeling better. One of my favourite quotes is Your Attitude Is Everything. This came to me in a very similar fashion as it did to your friend, and it’s very similar to her sentence too. For me, when I think of changing my attitude it is about my perspective – my view on things. How I view the world, events that happen, etc. Ultimately, how we deal with adversity determines how we deal with life itself.

    1. Beautiful words, Shinj. <3 Thanks for sharing.
      I'm healing well, but giving myself some more time.

      So glad to have you swing by. Your words always resonate. xox

  3. I needed to read this today. Struggling a bit with my perspective on a particular relationship and that is rooted in expectations, I know. Changing my perspective will definitely help.

    Also, you say you are healing. Is all well? Big hugs and get better soon.

    1. Dear Shy,
      Yes, have been a bit under the weather. A few health niggles, but nothing that can’t be sorted with the right diet, right attitude, and right manifestations. 🙂

      Thank you for sharing your story. It helps to know we are not alone in this life’s journey. <3
      Love and hugs.

  4. I will be changing my perspective, perhaps sooner than I think, by entering into retirement. (We’ll see). Right now, I need some healing time, myself. I am thinking of Esha and happy you were able to step in this week.

    1. Thanks dear Alana.

      Retirement sounds like a time to unwind, and do what our soul always seeks to. What was the nature of your job?
      Please do take breaks to heal. It is so pertinent in these days, when we are always running against time. Or fire fighting. It helps to let go of the frills and focus on our healing.

      Though I’ve realised healing breaks can’t be unending. We have to get back eventually. 🙂 Sigh!!!

  5. You always have a variety of photos from your life to share with us and it always makes me smile. Thank you, Natz. I love that quote and completely agree with it, too. I am experiencing the benefits of changing my perspective. 🙂

  6. Nice to see you back here, Natz! I’m thrilled that you are feeling better and you certainly look so good <3

    Akito – I can never get tired of saying this name 🙂

    A timeout always helps and it looks like it is doing wonders for you.

  7. Yes the world heals you, if one slows downs and appreciates the small little things…… I am loving the way you are spending your days Natasha. Friends, I second are stress busters any day. Aarshia looks lovely and has a keen eye for a photographic composition ……. Keep Smilimg!

  8. Glad to know you are better Natasha! Eat, sleep, laugh and be fit again. Yes, changing the perspective does make a huge difference as I have experienced!

  9. You are beautiful. I love the food. I’m hungry.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥

  10. It is so nice to see you here this week 🙂 I love all the photos and especially those clicked by Aarshia. I love those 2 shots of the flowers the most. Change your perspective is a powerful quote. It makes sense to see if our current perspective is causing us pain and hurt then can we opt to see from another perspective. Yet, I know the change in perspective does not happen on its own and instantly. It either comes gradually after having spent some time in a painful situation or by an intervention (mediated or not) from an external source. I am happy your healing is going at a good pace and you get back before we even register your absence 🙂

    1. Thanks dear Anu.

      Your comments always make me smile, as they are written with so much depth and passion. They actually warm the cockles of my heart.

      I so agree about your thoughts on Changing Our Perspective. Easier said than done sometimes, as the old baggages tend to pop up more often than not.

      I was hoping to take a longer healing break, but need to be back to manage this precious linky of ours, while Esha has to shoulder so much on her personal front.

      Thanks for always adding value to this link up of ours, Anu. Grateful. 🙂

  11. Sounds like you are having a wonderful time. I agree with the quote. It’s like Steven Covey’s Paradigm Shift.
    Things/problems often look different from a change in perspective.
