I live with my husband, daughter, FIL (father-in-law), MIL and SIL in New Delhi, and had been pretty careful since 3rd March, 2020 — the day primary schools in Delhi were closed because COVID had just started to crop up in the Capital. We were extra careful because we live with my in-laws, and were … Continue reading My Experience with COVID in 2021
Whenever someone sounds depressed, I say “I have a simple solution! Just write 5 things you’re grateful for every morning. In one week, you will start to feel better!” Gratefulness. It’s as simple as that. Or…IS IT? What if you can’t find the motivation to even THINK 3 things you’re grateful for? What if…you can … Continue reading Be Grateful To Stop Feeling Sad? What A Load Of Bulls**t
1 Month. 6 Events. 45 Pictures.
In the last 30 days, we’ve attended a LOT of events. Seen a lot of beautiful wedding clothes, discovered a few new wedding vendors, and even read a book on bridal fitness! There’s no dearth of wedding madness in our life, it seems 🙂 Endless, I tell you. Endless!
You’ll find a new post on the blog every Wednesday, starting tomorrow. Just wanted to let you know. So every week, when Wednesday rolls in and you’re fiddling at work wondering when Friday will get here, you can type thedelhibride.com and you will have a new post to read, and (hopefully) beautiful wedding pictures to … Continue reading ANNOUNCEMENT
Do you guys mind if I talk about some other stuff for a while? For the first time in my life, I’m not feeling it. I always feel like writing, but I’ve ended up in a rather precarious situation. I have too long a list of wedding-related posts I want to write, and that’s where the problem lies. It’s too long. Sounds odd, right? Bloggers out there would kill to always have something to talk about. Why has this been a problem for me? Because it means I’m overwhelmed. Frustrated. And it means I’ve been trying to schedule my writing for months now, which is a really, really big problem. I can’t write on schedule. Occasionally, sure. But a daily schedule – argh. No way. I’ve perpetually been in a state of struggle. I want to lead a disciplined life, want to follow the habits of people I look up to. But give me 3 straight days of the same thing, and I need to change it on the 4th day. How can someone like that become Continue reading “I think I will call this part – Acceptance.”
Another year wrapped up. Another calendar given to the kabaadi wala. Another set of resolutions in the bin.
Did I start off on a depressing note? Yes, it’s a new year. A new beginning. But I’ve been sulking lately. Feeling uninspired. I’m pretty sure it has to do with being away from work. I’ve been attending a lot weddings and while attending weddings “feels like work” to me, it’s not my REAL work. What I do is – write.
And when I’m not writing, I’m not happy.
I’ve also been spending a lot of time collecting my thoughts, trying to plan – what do I want 2015 to be like? Continue reading “Goodbye 2014, Hello 2015!”
In December 2012, I left my corporate 9-6 job to take on the role of a full-time blogger. One year later, I’m still enjoying the baffled looks on people’s faces when I tell them what I do for a living – “I run a blog” “A what?” The older generation needs “blogging” to be defined to … Continue reading Best of The Blog: 2013
2014 is just a few days away, and I’ve been spending my time thinking about my goals for the new year. Some resolutions, yes, but also what I want to do with the blog in 2014. I always have endless ideas for what I should write about, and I’m currently creating a list of all … Continue reading This One Is For The Blog Readers
