New Year, New Person

New Year, New Person

No, this isn't a cheesy "new year, new me" article.


At the beginning of this year, I was a completely different person. I was full of life and ready to take the year head-on. 2018 definitely threw me for a loop, added in a bunch of heartbreak and broken friendships, but I'm coming going into 2019 happier. This year has been one of the most mentally draining years I've ever had to face, but God has guided me in the right direction and I'm forever thankful for His mercy on my life.

I'm excited to finally have new doors opened for me and accept new opportunities in this coming year. 2018 only has about three and a half weeks left and I am determined to make them the best and end this year on a high note. No matter what I've been through this year, I can't let it stop me from moving forward because I can't live in the past.

I wanna work harder to be a better person to those around me and to be more accountable for my actions. I want to work harder in fixing myself before trying to fix others.

This next year is going to be what I need. It's going to be my year. I'm excited to see what opportunities come my way.
Thank you, 2018, but it's time for better.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
