4 Tips To Help You, When Plans Get Cancelled

Things have been difficult lately with plans either getting cancelled or failing miserably.

Not being able to attend The Photography Show has been one of the many disappointments. An event where all the leading photography brands gather to showcase their camera/equipments. All these has left me feeling angry and disappointed. 

I’ve been feeling useless almost everyday for the last 2 months and these 4 tips have helped me stay positive where my plans have gone down the drain.

One way of dealing with failed plans is to pamper yourself and relax

When plans don't work, just go with the flow

I believe everything happens for a reason. i guess there’s always a good a good reason why things don’t work the way we want them to.

What do you do when your plans fail? Do you have any tips to share with me? I could do with some more. 

Mother’s Day: This Is My Story, What’s Yours?

I was going to jump on the bandwagon and do a ‘Mother’s Day‘ gift guide post but decided to do something different. I thought of writing about how I have been celebrating Mother’s Day all these years.

My Mother's Day Story
Grainy & black and white, that’s my life!

To be honest, I had never even heard of Mother’s Day. Growing up in a tiny village in south-east India, the only thing celebrated was teachers and children’s day. So, when I moved to UK with my family, It was very difficult to digest all these days (there’s too many of them). It’s only when our parish priest started distributing tulips and daffodils to celebrate mum’, I started to understand what mother’s day is all about.

Sharing My First Road Trip Experience

January 2016, I embarked on my first ‘road trip‘ with my cousins and my adventurous uncle. I had travelled to India to visit a dear friend (who was ill) and to spend the New Year with my family in Mumbai. Travelling solo meant I had no one to tell me what to do and what not to do. Best feeling ever when you can make your own decisions and do whatever you want. A freedom that is rarely bestowed upon some asian girls and boys for that matter.

What Have I Done With My Life?

What Have I Done With My Life? is a question we all have asked ourselves at some point in our lives and probably failed to answer it.

As I grow older I’ve stopped enjoying birthdays because everybody wants to know when I’m getting married….eye rolls. (Try to imagine this but don’t get carried away lol; I’m an asian girl, 31 years old, eldest of the siblings and my brothers have girlfriends and are ready to tie the knot.)

However,  in the last 2 years, I’ve started enjoying my birthday all over again (the pressure to get married still lingers but I’m trying to look pass that). I try to console myself by thinking that age is just a number.
