Silver Linings Playbook?

June 12, 2017

Sometimes you have to look for the silver lining even when things are tough. And while I totally admit a positivity bias while sharing on social and online (something a lot of us have in common!), I genuinely try, these days, to find something...to choose Hope over Despair; Pockets of laughter even in Grief and so on and so forth.

I tried to put some of these thoughts into a non-lecture-pot piece over on UC News. Do give it a read, if you like! Feedback welcome!
 


What's Inspiring You Today?

We spend so much time focusing on the things that are going wrong -- and there's certainly enough material for most of us to keep us going till kingdome come... but what about the things that go right?

Almost every time you look for it -- even in the midst of adversity -- there's something positive, someone trying to make an efffort to help you, say, or something that you never noticed before that helps you deal with your trouble. (And no I don't mean alcohol or any of the usual crutches!)

Sometimes you meet people who inspire you ... if you're lucky! Sometimes it's a beautiful piece of art or literature...

PROCESSING, PROCESSING...

Over on my passion project that is The Health Collective, this past week we've featured a wonderful in-depth review with family therapist Reena Nath. Go ahead and read it here

 

This week, we have the gentle but pressing advice from therapist Ratna Golaknath in her series Lost Voices, on taking your own time to grieve and heal... on your own schedule, after losing a pregnancy.  

 

Both experts talk about the importance of being kind to yourself, so that for me is a KEY take-away.

You can read these and much more over on The Health Collective

Hola Amigos

August 22, 2016

I hope your August is going well, and not quite as apocalyptic as it's starting to sound... 

(I'm kidding, I think...Though there's no dearth of bad news, personal and otherwise... We will of course aim to stay optimistic and hope that this isn't quite #EndofDays)

But, but, but: 

I've been busy over on the new project: www.healthcollective.in, looking at mental health awareness, and what we can do to share stories, remove the stigma (collectively), and provide a database of resources. Those of you who are interesting in sharing stories or otherwise, do get in touch -- Email is best! You'll find more info here.

I've been a bit behind on the writing, and on checking in -- but pl feel free to mail with any q's or comments you have! Always happy to get feedback :)

Thanks, those of you who've tweeted photos of The Sibius Knot/ Broken News after reading it...  Lovely to hear from you.

Et voila, while mucking about on a photo collage maker, thought I'd share with you scenes from one rainy day, and a photo of TSK shared by a reader (and friend), as well as a scene from a shoot recce, at a school in Delhi.

Cheers...
