There’s this pie shaped corner in our backyard.
Behind the gazebo.
Surrounded by two Chinese Elms, a Gray Ash and bunch of flowery shrubs, this corner sits in solitude, under the umbrella of these trees.
The ground has a bed of beige colored flagstone. On which rests this bench. A gift from my family.
This pie shaped corner is our favorite spot in the backyard.
Hey Divine Being!
It’s Jan 6th of 2020 – a new year and a new decade.
New Year might have technically started last week.
But today is the 1st Monday of the new year.
And Mondays means business.
So officially New Year starts today.
School buses are filled with kids napping and yawning.
There’s more caffeine on the roads than gasoline.
You have to wait in line to get on the treadmill.
And day-planners are sold-out everywhere.
I clearly remember those days.
And cherish them so dearly.
Growing up, we lived on the top floor of a huge bungalow, in one of the central areas of New Delhi.
There were around six families in that big bungalow.
And we were so lucky to live on the top floor. Even though we had to climb two never-ending sets of stairs everyday, carrying a 20 pound backpack.
But we had a huge terrace, lots of fresh air, and a clear view of the blue sky.
That time of the year is here, when giving thanks is in the air.
Our heart is warm, so is our oven.
Our to-do lists are longer, so is the grocery line.
We're packing our bags or cleaning up the guest rooms.
This is the time of gathering together, giving thanks, laughing, drinking, over-eating and binge watching.
This is the time you and I await so we get to reset and recharge.
But let's face it, around Thanksgiving, a lot happens around us.
Hey beautiful one!
In this blog I’m sharing a few divine treasures that I created to embody and celebrate playfulness in your everyday life.
These will also make perfect holiday gifts for that special human whose child-like playful essence amazes you, inspires you and (maybe sometimes) annoys you 😛
These divine treasures are a part of my I am Playful essence collection.
They’re the end-result of me exploring, playing and experimenting with colors & shapes.
In short, me flowing with life, me completely in a child-like wonder state.
Hey divine being!
Did you read the letter Universe wrote for you?
This letter is for us, the super focused and driven souls. Who often get so absorbed in the world of action taking that we forget to stay connected with the essence of play.
The very essence that keeps us in tune with the Divine.
The very essence that makes manifestation of our desires so easy.
I got this lesson late last week, when I was creating videos for my I am Playful essence collection.
My dearest one,
Remember to play.
To make up your songs and fearlessly dance along
To sit under the oak tree and count fallen acorns
Remember to walk barefoot on the beach and let sand fill your toenails
To collect sea shells, make sand castles and fearlessly chase the waves
Remember to wiggle your toes, and pause to smell the rose
To jump in a puddle, drench in the rain and make angels in the snow
Hey beautiful Soul!
The season of silent night, pumpkin chai lattes and snuggles is here.
Few houses in our neighborhood have their Christmas decorations up.
And I’ve already watched my first Holiday movie on Netflix, Holiday in the Wild, so we’re officially in the holiday season (fyi, the ONLY reason my husband watched this entire movie was because of Manu. He’s super cute and reminded us of that day in Thailand, when we played in mud)
Anyways, back to where I was.
We all have those humans in our lives who say “no” to pretty much every invitation.
Be it a party, a happy hour, a weekend brunch or even stepping out for lunch.
It feels like they don’t want to be a part of anything fun.
To tell you the truth, I was totally “one of those party-poopers”.
Especially when it came to lunch-ing out everyday.
“No thanks, I got my lunch” was my default answer.
Fall is the time of letting go. 🍂🍁🍂
Removing the old and making space for new.
That's what nature does.
And we are nature.
So on this crispy Tuesday morning, I encourage you to let go....
> LET GO of any old story that's stopping you from receiving LOVE
> LET GO of any limiting belief that's getting in your way from giving LOVE
