An Epic Week Gone By:#MondayMusings

Last week was epic! It was a "heroic" week, so to speak. Grand and monumental in scale. A week that came with lot of unique experiences and also one that threw plenty of curve balls my way. I guess in totality the "good" and the "ugly" managed to balance each other pretty well, even though [...]

Celebrating Ma; My Shakti, My Warrior Queen: #MondayMusings

Celebrating Ma;  My Shakti, My Warrior Queen as you would have guessed is a sequel to this blog post from last week. It was written when my family and I were going through a truly testing time, amidst which; by God's grace, we were holding our ground and staying optimistic. It wasn't easy to stay that way, [...]

Ma: My Shakti, My Warrior Queen

This nebulous February afternoon, I realise my post “When the Going Gets Tough, The Tough Get Going”   was written with a divine purpose. Everything in life is synchronous. I do not believe in coincidences. That post probably spilled out of my being, so that it could be a reminder that was the only way to [...]

Weekend Gratitude: #MondayMusings

It's been a whirlwind couple of months, and the year has started on a bit of an unravelling note as  all of you who follow my blog will know. But then what about those countless blessings that pepper my life with the confetti of joy? How could I forget those and not list them out. [...]

On Turning One: #MondayMusings

My blog, NatashaMusing turned one last week. Well, I bet most of you know so, as I spoke about it "a lot" on social media. *Grin". I couldn't contain my excitement you see, so I engaged in a bit of a hullabaloo. After all it was my first Blogiversary. I invited a bunch of amazing bloggers to [...]

Happiness is Like a Butterfly: #MondayMusings

Last week was special. It was my birthday week. And it came wrapped in a gorgeous gift box of happiness.  Ever since I was a kid, I would be super excited about my upcoming birthday. As the date would draw closer the excitement would keep building up. I guess, I owe it to my parents [...]

Colour Me

Smiling Anjali took out her box of colour pencils and started sketching the gloomy downpour outside the window. It had been raining incessantly for a week now and everything had come to a standstill. Most people were complaining. But for Anjali the rains brought with them indelible memories of love and hope. After all the [...]

Star-Struck: #WanderlustWednesday

  I have been star-struck for as long as I can remember. No, not by the famous people, or fame itself; but by the celestial objects of the universe. I have had a fascination for sky watching; especially the morning and evening/night sky in the best of their splendour. As a kid I would spend [...]
