Confidence Boost

“Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit” 
― E.E. Cummings

Self-confidence means being in-sync with your capabilities, powers and self-worth regardless of the situation that you are in. It means that you acknowledge your strengths and believe in yourself to achieve your purpose and go for the challenges that the life throws at you, gallantly. It is the “mantra” of certainty and self-belief that makes you stand out of the crowd – self-assured, self-aware and upbeat. Undoubtedly, self-confidence is your “golden-ticket” to the worldly benefits and spiritual boons!


Fact – People with low self-confidence tend to repel people around them. Their limiting mindsets and behavior makes them  unbearable and a “drag” to be around. As per studies – Low self-esteem is a thinking disorder in which an individual views him/herself as inadequate, unlovable, and/or incompetent. Once formed, this negative view permeates every thought, producing faulty assumptions and ongoing self-defeating behavior. It’s a vicious cycle of negativity, low self-esteem and failure that goes on for ever and ever!

The good news is that self-confidence is something you can improve! If you’re feeling less-than-celestial, these simple, actionable tips are for you (for that much-needed confidence boost)

Weekly Photo Challenge : Silence

“I’ve begun to realize that you can listen to silence and learn from it. It has a quality and a dimension all its own.” 
― Chaim PotokThe Chosen


About the photo –
Clicked by CANON Rebel T6i (and edited by Snapseed App), while on my daily walk at the Riverfront Walking Trail, Memphis – this photo clearly depicts “SILENCE” and the need for it!
In today’s world when everything around us is so deafening and ear-splitting, SILENCE is the need of the hour. Flashy friendships, blatant relationships and clamorous associations, they all are manifestation of unnecessary chatter! With fabricated liaisons and blaring lies being omnipresent, calmness is a necessary occurrence which comes to us at a high price! Towering buildings, maddening gridlock and oh! so harried lives – has had us all so tangled, that, calmness feels awkward!
I wish for muteness! I wish for calmness! I wish for a piece of “SILENCE” to call my own!

Weekly Photo Challenge : Weathered

“In sailing, in weather, in life and death, answers are not endings and questions are not to be feared. The unknowns keep us moving forward.” 
― Kaci Cronkhite

From the past!

About the photo –
Clicked by Nexus 6P phone (and edited by Snapseed App), on my trip to a small town called Bhangarh (in India), this photo speaks a thousand words about being “WEATHERED!”
Famous for its historical ruins, and considered to be one of India’s many haunted locations – Bhangarh (established in 1573) is an embodiment of age-long history and yesteryear. Once a town alive with people like you and me, it is now a land of relics, reminding us of an era of princely states and regal existence. From grand courtyards, abundant riches and effusive lifestyle to a wreckage that’s long forgotten, this town sermonizes the imprint of “time and tide!”
From witnessing the past to now becoming a “historical site” – Bhangarh with its legends of the antiquity, has for sure weathered!

Hence, the idea of – Healthy Food Series – where I will share, address and talk about some healthy food options available in the market (hopefully on a weekly basis.) From talking about their health benefits to discussing the background of a particular food product and a bonus sumptuous recipe, this series aims at making you (and me) more aware and watchful of the foodstuff that we consume.
