PRIORITIZE YOUR HAPPINESS!

From a very young age Indian girls are taught to adjust and prioritize others happiness before theirs.  Somewhere that conditioning that “doosro ki khushi mein hi khushi milti hai” gets ingrained in their minds forever. Girls are taught to be submissive and subservient so they can appease their parents, in-laws and husband.  They are told that mothers are always “givers and selfless”.  Due to all this conditioning, women somewhere start living for others more than themselves.  They cannot say No

HAPPINESS, I SEEK YOU…

No matter what we seek in life, our mind chases happiness at the end of it all. Happiness is the key to human existence even though it remains elusive most of the time. It sneaks through the doors of our heart and mind without knocking and leaves without notice most of the time.

Unlike family, where we are bound by biological relationships, friends are the ones we choose and they choose us and that is what makes this bond so special. Best friends are the ones with whom

THE CALL OF HAPPINESS!

If someone had told me a couple of years back that I was going to be a ‘Happiness Coach’ I would have laughed it off and thanked the person for their wishful thinking. Until two years ago, I was in a leadership role with a reputed Business Process Outsourcing organization, busy climbing the corporate ladder and following hectic schedules as a ‘working mother’ . I loved my job and felt a sense of accomplishment at being financially independent. In spite of the high

Motherhood: An exquisite odyssey

Motherhood is a roller coaster ride filled with exuberance,enchantment, trepidation, uneasiness, adventure, turbulence, love…… The wave of happiness started flowing when I got to know that I was expecting. Being the first child, I hardly knew anything about pregnancy. A concoction of moroseness, ebullience, excitement  was wafting through the body. Finally the awaited day came. My water bag burst in the morning and convulsing pains started. A ripple of twinge embarked through the stomach which were totally unbearable. But I was

Fireworks exploded over the Pacific Ocean, one mile away as we welcomed the new decade. The house was warm from the crackling fireplace and all the kids were snug in their beds. We looked around, with our too big grins. “Happy New Year darling!” and many versions of “I hope 2020 is kind to us”. When you live in an extended family like mine, there are so many brilliant moments of joy. When the baby “agoo”s or we’re in the
