About life cheerleaders, avengers and how Fearless is a book for everyone..

In Fearless, I wrote, “…a unique network of life cheerleaders–people who love me, support me and genuinely wish me the very best. [..] Life cheerleaders do not (necessarily) need to be close friends or part of our intimate support system. Life cheerleaders are just people who radiate positivity and well wishes towards us every timeContinue reading “About life cheerleaders, avengers and how Fearless is a book for everyone..”

Books, (Audio)books and (NO)books

A couple of weeks ago, a lovely lady asked me if I preferred printed or digital books. That was an easy answer. I am still an old soul utterly enamored with the feeling of holding a book in my hands or the sight of them on shelves and nightstands. I told her that the bestContinue reading “Books, (Audio)books and (NO)books”

Ideas about Ideas

Below is a short essay I wrote around 2016. It perfectly describes how I have felt these past few weeks. Ideas about ideas “A wise friend recently told me that whenever I felt my mind too crowded with ideas or thoughts, I should just write the ideas down.

Riddles & Explanations

It has been surprisingly difficult to process the fact that I completed a marathon. Part of me even feels we did not celebrate properly; it feels like it didn’t actually sink in. In the past few days, I have kept repeating myself: “Yes, you ran 42 kilometers, yes, you finished the race”. I remember thatContinue reading “Riddles & Explanations”
