Your body speaks to you always. Don’t ignore the signs.

It was mental health day on October 10th, and on that same day, I got steroid injections done to my face — where a patch of facial hair stopped growing for a while — to stimulate growth.

This condition is called Alopecia Areata and relatively common (happy to share more if you have any questions).

How is this linked?

Losing a patch of hair is not a big deal in the big scheme of things, and I lucked out with this one, but it can be an issue directly related to one of our…

This was the spark to write this.

Given the current uncertain times, I can’t help but reflect on a statement I read recently, ‘it broke my heart but opened my eyes.’ Whether it’s the loss of a loved one or not achieving a promotion, we’ve all experienced heartbreak in some form or another. When we rise up, seeking the lessons learned in our loss or failure…

Who are they and what really happened?

Growing up and in my early adulthood, Thomas Cook held a special place for me. It had always been my go-to travel agency, before the days of online booking and DIY holidays, and I’ll never forget my Thomas Cook traveler’s cheques which helped me navigate my way through Salamanca, Spain.
