Part 2 of the Self-Love Series
Welcome back, my loves, for the second part of the Self-Love Series.
I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason—that every experience we encounter shapes us in some way and is exactly what we need to experience at a given moment. And I believe that you clicked on this article for a reason. If you’re a close friend of mine, the reason could be that you’re just trying to support my creative project which is this blog (which is so sweet, and I love you all). But maybe you clicked on this article because you feel something lacking. Maybe you’re struggling to love and accept yourself. Maybe you’re looking for more ideas on self-care. Maybe you’re looking for someone to give you permission to love and take care of yourself in a world that can be very externally demanding.

Hopefully everyone has had a wonderful week. This has been my last week of winter break; classes start again tomorrow, and I could not be more ready. I’ve changed my major from education to English literature, and just reading through my syllabi online was getting me so excited! I can tell the next couple months are going to be amazing, and I hope they’ll be amazing for you, too. Continue reading “The Importance of Loving and Taking Care of Ourselves”
When I was eight years old, I thought I was fat.
I hope this first week of 2018 has brought a great deal of joy and motivation to you all. I’m still in India and will be for a little while longer, but I plan on writing about it when I get home.
Since it is the New Year, I’ve been doing a little bit of thinking about New Year’s resolutions. If you read my previous article about my favorite New Year’s practice, you know I’m more prone to come up with intentions rather than resolutions, but, nevertheless, the latter are on my mind.

If you want to attract good things, you have to recognize what’s already good.
Hello, my lovely readers!
Hopefully everyone has had a warm and joyful holiday season. I know I’ve really enjoyed spending time with friends and family; it’s been a beautiful celebration of love.
If you’ve been keeping up with this blog for a while (or honestly, even if you’re just glancing at it for the first time), you’ve probably noticed that the things I choose to write about predominantly focus on various ways we can attract greater joy, abundance, and positivity into our lives—things such as practicing mindfulness, living authentically, exploring our creativity, accepting ourselves as we are, toning our chakras, listening to music, expressing gratitude, and embracing purposeful lives.

Plants always choose the light.
Houseplants are wonderful. They clean the air, purify the energy of a room, and brighten up the space they occupy. My grandma has three big, beautiful jasmine plants in her living room that fill the space with lush greenery and—a few times a year—the sweet aroma of jasmine flowers. She must have one of the greenest thumbs in the world; sometimes, I’m actually convinced she’s goddess of abundance incarnate. It’s incredible. She’s the reason that, about nine months ago, I decided to start nurturing some plants of my own. She really inspired me. Continue reading “Make like a Plant: On Choosing Joy”
It is through our aloneness that we are able to recharge.
There are many people in this world who feel uncomfortable with being alone. It’s understandable to a point—most people enjoy the sense of community and belonging that comes from spending time with friends and loved ones who care about them. However, finding joy in solitude is really important. It’s during our moments of aloneness that we have the opportunity to go inward, figure out who we are, think about what we want, and connect with our creativity. Continue reading “On Embracing Solitude”
Feel your feelings. All of them.
Hello, my lovelies!
I hope everyone in the U.S. had a wonderful Thanksgiving and that you were able to enjoy every moment with your families. My weekend was certainly fun- and family-filled, and I’m really grateful that all my family members are so close to each other and healthy. My thoughts go out to those who are grieving the loss of loved ones right now—especially since the holiday season is upon us. May you have the strength to move through your days, may you be comforted during times of heartache, and may you be surrounded by infinite love.
