WHAT IS THE PILE OF STUFF?
There are various things that inspire me and are a part of my day to day activities. Always wanted to start writing about them and finally started.
It’s about everything that I resonate with. It’s the books I read, the food I eat, a little bit of Ayurveda, my favorite home decor, my paintings, my travels memories and this list can go on forever. It’s also about the things I do for my mental and physical health. Few of these I practice and few I am trying to slowly include in my life.
To sum it up, this blog is about everything I love….. things, practices, beliefs and the wonderful people I meet in life ️
