Chatper 53: Have you lived?

I recently got into writing poems more again, so here is a poem that was inspired by a deep, meaningful talk on a blanket underneath the soft spring sun.

Chapter 51: A confession of love

This chapter is a special piece inspired by a special person in the current chapter of my life. It was written after a special night of happiness. It’s an ode love and an attempt to capture the deep, rich, and bright feeling of love.

Chapter 50: A tale of original copies and copied originals

Plagiarism claims in the art sector: what are the odds of two people conceiving the same, complex idea independently of each other? Does true originality even exist?

Chapter 49: Snippets from self-development

Tacky green glasses roost on her head like a giant grasshopper. She flirts awkwardly with the camera as she is half smiling, half duck-facing.

Life stages many different shots of us and each of them tells a story…

Chapter 38: En route towards the best

I’m not one of the best, my abilities are not the best, thus, I’m unsuitable for the job.

Perhaps you’ve had similar doubts in your abilities before. Perhaps you also feel like you’re not good enough sometimes.
I understand and relate to this feeling, so, let’s work through these self-doubts together.

Chapter 29: I tried writing a book

At the age of 12, my mind resembled a jolly playground of spinning fantasies and swinging creativity. As my fantasy world expanded every day, I also began to knit characters and stories around it. Eventually, it became impossible for me to keep all this yarn of tales locked away in my head, and that is how I came to my first attempt of writing a book.

Chapter 24: Lessons for life (pt 1)

Being young comes with an admirable recklessness and an emotional intensity that adulthood cannot compare with. But when we are young, we are also blinded by emotion and deaf to reason. I keep browsing through my memories, with my attention especially drawn towards life choices which I now cannot identify with anymore. To ensure that my future self will not repeat these past mistakes, I have created this list of important lessons my younger self has taught me…

Chapter 23: Blueberry skies and daily routine

Good weather raises my spirit, my work attitude, my health, making me generally more productive and vitalised. Unfortunately, I cannot control the weather though. The good news is that there are other factors beside the weather that influence our state of mind, mood, attitude, wellbeing, and performance. In fact, the most influential one of them lies well within our action range. Curious to find out more about how you can you help your wellbeing and performance reach their potential?
