All about the mind Introspection

On loneliness

April 17, 2017
lonely

A couple of days ago, I wrote this poem above and shared it on Instagram. It’s been something I’ve been struggling with the last twelve to eighteen months. Some days are better than others but there are times when the loneliness hits hard. I have to distinguish between being alone and lonely though. I enjoy being alone.  I truly do! As an introvert, I value the time spent by myself reading, writing, exercising, at the beach or even just watching…

Bateau Bay Beach {Sundays in my city}

April 16, 2017

Bateau Bay beach is a 5 minute drive from my place. It’s a small beach, slightly secluded, with a national park encompassing it. In summer, it does get pretty packed but usually, going after work means most of the people have left. I like the seclusion but being small, sometimes it means that you can hear people around you.

Six months since I left all the friends I’ve made in the last eleven years to move to place where I know no one. So what has it been like? Work has been great. I can’t complain. In that sense, I’ve made the best decision. I…

things that made me happy

It’s time for another edition of looking back at a week of what made me happy. I’ve been sick for most of the week and not exercised at all which means, I’m in a bit of a funk. It started with a sore throat on Thursday last week. I felt a bit better on Friday but Saturday it worsened, and then Sunday, I was sick again. Then during the week, my sinuses were killing me. I’m better today after some…
