    I’m Running

    Looking through November 3rd, 2017 to November 3rd, 2018, I can tell you that a lot did happen in that span of a year. There were lots of lessons learnt, some kept and others discarded and one of the lessons I had to learn was understanding that, sometimes distractions look like pressure and sometimes, when the pressure becomes too much, you unconsciously find yourself questioning and vetting your values, precepts, modus operandi and the likes.

    My Depression Memoirs

    People think depression is sadness, crying or dressing in black. But people are wrong. Depression is the constant feeling of being numb. You wake up in the morning just to go back to bed again. ~ healthyplace.com Depression has been one of the silent battles of my life. I had my first that lasted four years in 2011 and again, in 2017, I began having another phase. I remember starting this year on a very hopeful note – I mean, the moment I celebrated another year in 2017, I was hopeful and positive about a lot of things. There were promises and aspiring new beginnings even though, at a point,…
