Recovery and rehabilitation after cancer treatment

How to survive within this cancer inflicted world…

Will we ever find a cure to cancer? The answer to that question is literally worth over a billion dollars…but here’s my 2 cents. I think we are far far away from that place, a place that we might actually never reach! This is purely my opinion, but a cure that eradicates all cancers once…

Screw Resolutions

  While we glide into 2016, I don’t look back in surprise of where the last year went but instead devour every moment of every day that 2015 gave to me. What an incredible year, one that has propelled me to kick off an even better year ahead. Everything came into sync, like pieces of…

What really matters at the end of life…

How your worst nightmare can be your best moment yet…

The irony of this highly cliched, over used phrase “what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger” seems to be one of the most accurate definitions of my life. We all go through pitfalls and I speak from a personal perspective. A perspective from which I lived a whole 7 years, moment to moment in…

What do you want most in the world?

I bet a pencil would be furthest from your mind right? It certainly was for me, but not for this little boy found begging on the streets of India. All he wished for was a pencil and one day his wish came true. Sometimes we take little moments of joy, savour it and keep in…

“Inhale the good shit, exhale the bulshit”

Today I’m only just beginning to live. Doing what I absolutely love and exposing myself to the depths of what the journey has to offer. I have suddenly gotten so involved with “me” that some think I might be going a bit crazy. The other day I was asked if I was feeling “ok” when…
