20 Mar Life’s fragility
*This post is dedicated to my dear friend’s mom, Aunty Peggy, a cancer fighter and tough goings throughout her life*
I couldn’t believe what I saw on the text. I gave my bestfriend a call immediately and she was crying uncontrollably, very shaken. I broke into tears, heartbroken because I recalled the memories of talking to Aunty Peggy earlier this year.
I can only imagine the pain that she’s going through.
And that got me reflecting in life.
It’s time to end the war- with ourselves, with the laws of nature and universe. Self-care, real food, meaningful relationships deserves to be prioritised above anything else and cherished for the life-giving rocket fuel that it is.
Coming back to self-love, self-compassion and reminding myself that it’s the actions I take daily – not every now and then – that have the most profound effect on health and life.
Be it taking the time off for yourself to de-stress, getting that overdue massage, travelling to your dream places, doing things that feels congruent to what you’re meant to do in this world. Or spending quality time with loved ones. Less arguing, more listening. Putting good fuel in the body and throwing out the ones that don’t serve us. We can love the food that love us back.
I don’t think we can ever be prepared to lose someone even though we know that some day they will leave us. I still miss my grandfather and grandmother till this very day.
If you ever lost a loved one, what was something you find hard to let go? How did you go through the difficult grieving period?

Thank you all so much for reading. Sharing one of my favourite reminders of all time:
The most important time in your life is right now.
The most important person is the one that is in front of you right now.
The most important activity is the one you are doing right now.
