Inspirational tidbits from Carrie Diaries


I recently started watching “The Carrie Diaries”, an American teen drama television series, and I must say I am really enjoying it so far. It is about a teenage girl, a lot like myself, struggling to move on from her grief of her mother’s death, taking on life’s challenges and experiences the city of Manhattan brings as she is on her journey of becoming a writer as well as a fashionista.

The show starts off with this quote, “They say the key to being a writer is figuring out who you are… finding your own voice”

Chills ran down my spine when I first heard this quote. I knew  right then in my heart that the key to finding out who I am is right in front of me. Putting my thoughts in paper, mapping it all out, exemplifies my true nature and defies who I am as an aspiring writer, entrepreneur, and a risk-taking thrill seeker. My future is yet to be told, my voice is yet to be found. Behold….

“To tell the truth, or create a life for myself I’ve always wanted to live”

Sometimes the truth can wait… but right now it is time to explore life’s riches and future endeavors. Much like the quote by  Bob Marley “Love the life you live, live the life you love”. I have a tendency to drift into my fantasy la la world from time to time, it is what keeps me happy. Life to me is a big adventure and I like to embrace it with open arms.

Here is another quote from the TV series, this is when Carrie encounters her first heartbreak….

“Love is something we wait for, we imagine our first sex, our first kiss, our first I love you, but we never imagine our first heartbreak. Maybe because its too painful to even imagine but in a way the pain of love truly changes us its the losing of love that makes us who we are. Life gets more complicated but also filled with promise and the possibility of opening hearts to new beginnings, new dreams and new places. Things are no longer a fantasy. I’m searching for me: who I was and who I wanted to be.”

This quote is pretty self explanatory and something all of us have witnessed or are witnessing as we go about on our journey.

6 Months!

“The big secret in life is that there is no big secret. Whatever your goal, you can get there if you’re willing to work.”
~ Oprah Winfrey

I am quite impressed with myself, that I have been maintaining this blog for 6 months now, and many more to come. I am surprised I haven’t given up on it. For me this is a huge deal, because I have a bad habit of going out of practice. I am glad I am finally making some progress with my somewhat routinely effort with this blog. However, I wouldn’t have been able to have gotten so far without the support of my fellow blog readers. Thank you 🙂




Toss a coin in the air and suddenly you’ll know what you want

When you need to make a difficult decision between two things, try this, it actually works!


Things aren’t always what they seem to be at first glance.

We have probably all seen an email or blog post with some funny but wrong answers kids have offered on tests.  One of the most famous is this:


Recently was sent a few that I have not seen before, including this one.

This answer left the teach a bit concerned about the mother’s influence on her child.


As it turns out the child was drawing a picture of her mother with a snow shovel at her workplace Home Depot.

The moral of the story is that we should be careful about being too literal (as in the first example) and remember that appearance can be deceiving (as in the second).

This is one of the many things people don’t often realize, things aren’t always what they seem, so stop making judgments when you don’t know the truth. You can’t depict anything from what is in front of you so it is best to believe in what the person is trying to say. Of ten words are deceiving and things are easily misunderstood and led to making assumptions. Avoid being so ignorant and look beyond what is in front of you and just try to understand.

Happy Friday :)


Happy Friday, my fellow blog readers 🙂
Life is like a roller coaster. It has its ups and downs. But it’s your choice to scream or enjoy the ride. I like to do both, so your ears would be filled with screams of joy 😛
