When the Going Gets Tough, The Tough Get Going:#MondayMusings

"When the going gets tough, the tough get going." - Joseph P. Kennedy (1888-1969) These beautiful lines by Joseph P. Kennedy, Father of U.S. President John F.Kennedy, has been my mantra for life, for the longest I can even remember. Probably way back when I was in school. This quote speaks volumes, in such less [...]

Nurturing: #MondayMusings #WOTY

My #MondayMusings is late by a few days, but I'm traveling and I'm trying my best to be as "nurturing" as can be. After all that's the Word of the Year #WOTY for me.  The amazing, Corinne of Write Tribe suggested we all have a Word of the Year, and I thought it was a  brilliant idea. [...]

Adieu 2017 With Deep Gratitude

On Joy and Sorrow: #MondayMusings

Khalil Gibran, On Joy and Sorrow Your joy is your sorrow unmasked. And the selfsame well from which your laughter rises was oftentimes filled with your tears. And how else can it be? The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain. Is not the cup that holds your wine [...]

That Thing About Winters: #MondayMusings

  So what's that thing about winters; that special thing that a few of us love to love, and many love to hate? Do you ever wonder what could it be? GOT(Game of Thrones), the TV series more recently popularised the line, "Winter Is Coming" which happens to be the motto of House Stark, one [...]

To Live with Gratitude: #WOW #BlogAdda #MondayMusings

Yet again!!!! A prompt that gives me thirty minutes to write what’s top of my mind, well that’s no complex feat, I suppose. I’ve been seeing innumerable gratitude prompts and posts off late.

My name is Laila (pronounced at Lie-lah, and not Lai-la or Lay-la). I'm a 4-year-old, toy Shitzu [...]

Beyond Our Fears, Lies Fun: #WriteBravely #WriteTribeProBlogger #MondayMusings

  I spent all of last week in the pristine lap of the Havelock, in the Anadaman & Nicobar Islands; away from choking habitation and non-stop hum-drum of the city life. This vacation was a welcome respite from Wi-Fi and phone connectivity, cradled in the arms of nature, sun, sea, sand and occasional downpours. We [...]
