Surviving 2021

OK, so this is going to be a tough one. Surviving 2021 has been tough on me. And it’s so difficult to admit that. For years I’ve tried my hand at blogging but I couldn’t seem to get a hang of it.

Jesus Feeding 5000 Through Local Community Pantries

Jesus feeds 5000 pantries

The story of Jesus feeding 5000 people was one of the bible stories I grew up with. I was amazed at how Jesus divided five pieces of bread and two fish and made it enough to feed a huge crowd.

My life has been full of […]

An Ode to HER

She woke up this morning with her head thumping like drums. It’s another day. Four hours of sleep has been the norm since she gave birth. In between feedings, diaper changes, and phantom cries, four hours is already a blessing. She got up, trodding on her way to the bathroom sink. It’s been so long since she looked at herself in the mirror. And now she stood there looking at her matted hair and the dried milk stains on her […]

Anthony Bourdain: Daring Into Parts Unknown with No Reservations

Anthony Bourdain has been an inspiration for me in so many ways. Because of him, I dared myself to go beyond my comfort zone and try new adventures without any reservations.

Youtube was my favorite hangout, where I binge-watched A Cook’s Tour in the middle of the night. His sarcasm and I-don’t-give-a-flying-fuck […]

Over time, I met and became friends with women who, like me, had started their own successful careers working online. Most of us have the same motivation: to […]
