Talking from her heart

Her calming voice and engaging conversation drew me to listen to her podcasts titled Don’t just breathe…live! I enjoyed listening to insights on optimizing relationships, happiness, thinking positive when you are going through a rough patch, success in your personal life and most importantly focusing on the relationship that you have with yourself. Nimisha’s podcasts are all about giving yourself permission to be yourself, focus on your strengths, work on your deficits, without apologizing for who you are and live life to the fullest.

1.I love the name of your podcast, how did you come up with it?
 After wasting 4 years in an abusive marriage, the only thing I realized is that once you have wasted your precious time in living the kind of life you never wanted, no amount of money can buy it back. Don't just breathe.. Live! has been my life mantra since then as I have seen people living the same routine for years and calling it a life. Months, years and decades are wasted in thinkin…

This too shall pass!

It’s been hard battling those feelings coupled with anxiety and unpredictability that is staring at us in the face. Like most of you, I am also suffocating with the social distancing, drowning in the fear of the unknown, my heart sinking every time I look at the growing numbers of COVID-19 cases around the world.

I am also working on accepting that it's going to be a while before my dishwasher is fixed. Cheers to more exercise for my fingers! The present crisis has made few unpleasant memories from the past surface. The emphasis on s…

With darkness, comes light

After admiring my skills at photography, I decided to write about this compelling picture. Surely, it is more than just a random click on my morning run. I stood there for a while, admiring the lamp and its gorgeous bluish-greyish background, watching the light from the lamp growing weaker as the morning sun rose slowly, but proudly, getting ready to outshine everything else around. I recently learnt that this hour was called the "Blue hour / blue light". I was witnessing it in all it's glory. Blue light means the light just before sunrise or sunset. Delving deeper into the personality of light, I wondered how strange and obvious it is that one light outshines the other at different times of the day. At night, the familiar wrought iron street light is sometimes the only source of light, guiding me not to fall off the edge of the road and crash into cars speeding past. And at daytime, it's just a pretty antique looking lamp standing witness to everything that walk…
