Brave Little Girls

Be brave little girl,
You are stardust made flesh.

Dragon heart,
Fire-starter,
Warrior soul.

They’ll try to knock you down
Stand tall.

They’ll do all they can to make you lose faith,
Keep it.

They’ll rant and rave and call you names,
Remember yours.

Be brave wild child.
You are wind and moon in woman form.

Life giver.
Healer.
Protector.

They’ll force you to behave,
Stand fierce.

They’ll strip away all your strength,
Find it again.

Never settle for that which isn’t your right.

Do what you must and love what you do.

Arm yourself with truth and honour.

Your kindness isn’t weakness,
Your loving isn’t wasted.
Your tears are all accounted for.

Embrace the lessons learnt.
Let blame never lead you astray.
Give love, get love, be love.

When darkness takes away all hope,
shine brighter than the sun.
When the pain gets to much to bear,
Laugh louder than you’ve ever done.

Little girls of the world, be one!

The Healthy Meanderings Of A Foodie Mind

I don’t believe in diets. They seem to always crop up around the time some company in the West wants to peddle its products more. Most are unhealthy, with the known #yoyoweight effect and as such pointless!

I don’t believe in deprivation. Fasting for a religion or godman is another form of mind control for me. In a country where hunger is rampant, I find it insane that people would rather starve than eat a particular food or not eat at all in a particular month…

I believe in discipline. I believe in pushing the mind and the body beyond their capabilities.
As a kid I woke up at 4.30am most mornings to go ride horses by 5.45am, then played basketball, did Karate, swam, cycled and went to school of course and all these helped discipline me.
Over time we lose that spirit and though I’ve enjoyed every bit of breaking free, travelling, working I felt I lost a major part of myself through losing my discipline.
My amazing #fitnessguru NamrataPurohit has always pushed me, knowing I’m not doing enough to power on at my best and so she suggested baby steps … making small changes in the way I eat, eating clean, no matter what sticking to what I had started out to do and basically giving up ever so often.
This is my 2nd attempt at a major detox in my life and I’ve gone 6 days straight without a single drop of alcohol in my body (and I’m half Sardar and I love my wine and my closest buds will know how difficult not having even a glass of red over these many days is for me), eating absolutely right, working out everyday and I’m feeling incredible.
My mind wants to feed me clean foods and my body is rejecting anything that’s not. I’m focused, determined and making lifelong choices that can only keep me at my fittest best!
