Creativity in Some Ways

Everyone is creative in certain ways in their lives. I believe that everyone has some hidden talent in themselves which may be hard to find- skills which can help them to do several imaginary things. Creativity has no age limit and it aids us to think better and grow up with time. These days during…

Your Untapped Creativity is your Hidden Step towards Inner Self

A creative designer and an educator, I stepped into the field of counselling and therapy two years ago. And today I am glad to have explored the field of ‘Art Based Therapy’ which works wonderfully in processing our emotions which definitely is the need of this hour. It is a tool we can imbibe in…

Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night

A couple of years ago I came across one of my favourite poems- ‘Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night’, by Dylan Thomas. The poem goes- Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Though wise…

A Letter to You

For all the hours that I spent tracing the softness of your skin, for all of the nights that we were together, I am writing you this letter, my love. I know that you will never see this, because I’ll hide it within the confines of my chest, locked away like the most precious treasure…

Art

Art is a substitute for acting or living. If life is the wilful expression of emotion, art is the intellectual expression of that same emotion. Whatever we don’t have, don’t attempt or don’t achieve can be possessed through dreams, and these are what we use to make art. At other times our emotion is so…

My World

All I wanted was to live a life where I could be me, and be okay with that. I had no need for material possessions, money or even close friends with me on my journey. I never understood people very well anyway, and they never seemed to understand me very well either. All I wanted…

Trying Pins

There’s a seldom mentioned, exceptionally entertaining function on Pinterest which was rolled out in November 2016. I was pleasantly surprised having discovered this virtual gem at a particularly painful time in my life. This worthwhile distraction, together with another Pinterest favourite, namely ‘Art History Memes’, was a lifesaver in many ways. If you’re familiar with…

Silience

The brilliant artistry hidden all around you. Its’s strange that something so vibrant as art is so nearly invisible. Strange how rarely we stop to savor the details, or hear the music playing in the background that’s far better than it has any right to be. It’s only after someone points it out, that you…

Is Living an Art or Science?

We hear more often the terms like the art of living, spiritual living, living for the present, purposeful living, and so many other terms attached to living. So the question arises as to what is living? All of us live, with or without the above terms. Adding some adjectives to life does not mean that…

The Art of Unlearning

Often times in life we find ourselves faced with situations we’d much rather not like to face. Maybe it’s the weight of reality crushing our bones, or maybe it’s the thought of all of the things we didn’t do that smothers us. Either way, we’re faced with anxiety. I have a theory, and I’m going…

The Little Book of Hygge

Denmark has an international reputation for being one of the happiest nations in the world, and hygge is widely recognized to be the magic ingredient to this happiness. Hygge has been described as everything from “the art of creating intimacy”, “cosines of the soul”, “the absence of annoyance” to “taking pleasure from the presence of…

The Art Of Letting Go

“Let It Go”- the three words that have managed to become the slogan of my life. As irritating as it is, I can’t help but wonder what happens when we let go? We know what happens to material objects. You throw away your old pair of shoes and it’s gone. Someone else will probably find…

The Magical Year

May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next…

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger shows us that the key to being stronger, happier people is to handle adversity better and stop trying to be “positive” all the time. For the past few years, Mark Manson — via his wildly popular blog — has been working on correcting our delusional expectations for…
