Fifteen Months After A Reducetarian Diet, I’m Finally Becoming A Vegetarian

F

I’ve been on a reducetarian diet for the last fifteen months. It has been a fantastic experience. I started off with weekday vegetarianism which I talked about in this blog post roughly twelve months ago. However, today, I finally leapt into it. I’m finally stopping all consumption of flesh. I will, however, consume milk and eggs. So, that makes my new diet a lacto-ova-vegetarian one.

You Don’t Find Your Passion, You Do Things Passionately

Y

Passion is the poster boy of the 21st century. No discussion about a successful life forgets to include the dreaded keyword. However, there is no magic mantra to living a life that is fulfilling in every aspect; even if there was, I’m sure it would be longer than a single word. I love writing. I love putting words together. Is writing my passion? I’m not so sure, yet. Do I do it...

Why Breaking Your Character Is Necessary To Grow In Life

W

In storytelling, and otherwise, “character” is a strong word. It is quite literally the definition of a person. To have a good character is analogous to being a good person. In storytelling of all forms, breaking character is a significant act. It is often a defining moment which pushes a character to do something they won’t usually do and that, in turn, makes the story and the...

Valentine’s Day, 2015: I Changed My Life, Not That I Knew It At The Time

V

It’s that time of the year again. The day when those in love cherish and at times, exaggerate their fondness for each other. Also, the day when those who aren’t so lucky find ways to undermine what is a beautiful moment for the entire world. This post isn’t for the former. You’re happy, and you can enjoy the social construct called “Valentine’s Day” so...

Overwhelmed By Your Current Life? Try A Soft Reboot

O

It was the last week of January. I was in my hometown, taking a walk around town when all of a sudden, everything that had been on my mind came rushing through. It’s difficult to explain what it exactly felt like. I could physically feel how overwhelmed I was with everything. So, I sat on a nearby bench, and I sobbed. Then, I figured out what I had to do, and I did just that.

A Good Life Isn’t Devoid Of Stress; It’s How You Manage It That Counts

A

Some stress is necessary for life. That is my maxim. That is what I believe. Why is that? I don’t know. Maybe it was the way I grew up. Perhaps, it is how I’m wired. However, I do think that there should always be some stress in life for me to move forward. In fact, stress is slightly positive unless all of us would be somewhat complacent. What do you do if you’re utterly and...

How Finding My Trigger Habit Lets Me Break My Routine If Life Demands

H

I spent a lot of time reading Medium articles last year. Most of them fell into the same group and talked about the same things. The hustle porn, the CEO routines and so on was the name of the game. However, one article that I remember was about “making your bed”. I tried looking for it. However, Medium is full of “make your bed” articles now. It’s a weird community...

About The Content

There are two kinds of blog posts here as of mid-2018 – The Journal and The Words.

The Journals are thoughts, lessons, events that unfold in my life word-for-word and as barebones as I can put them out there.

The Words are creative pieces, narratives, short-stories that take from my life but did not happen word-for-word.

You can read more about this change here.
