If you ever traveled back in time, what would you tell your younger self?
I wish I can meet you today….
If I meet you today, I would tell you, “You don’t have to be thinner, taller or fairer to be prettier.”
You are beautiful just the way you are.
If I meet you today, I would tell you, “Things are not bleak as you make yourself to believe”
Remember, if it hurts more than it makes you happy, let it go, for it is not love.
If I meet you today, I would tell you, “Believe in yourself, your abilities and silence those inner demons.”
If you have come this far, you can go even farther than what you think is possible; i’ts only in the mind that there are limits.
If I meet you today, I would tell you, “Let go of the toxic people in your life.”
Let them go, nothing about them is worth stressing over, especially what they bring about, be it bitterness or strife.
If I meet you today, I would tell you, “Don’t bother if everyone jeers at you, pities you and speaks nastily of you.”
Even though the whole world might seem against you, there would always be someone who wholeheartedly loves you.
If I meet you today, I would tell you, “You don’t have to prove anything to anyone.”
For you will soon move on and their opinions, well, like the winds of yesterday, in no time they would be gone.
If I meet you today, I would tell you, “Be selfish, be loving and be kind to yourself.”
No matter who lets you down, you would always have someone to count on and that would be you.
And, if I meet you, my 20-year-old self, today, I would tell you, “Take that first step, don’t doubt yourself, not today nor ever.”
For miracles are just around the corner!

I wanted to scream with excitement that my daughter chose to write about her ambition and aspirations over everything else first. To me, this was one of those parenting 'win' moments.
My daughter turned eight years old in January, and among the various gifts she received from friends and family was an absolutely beautiful personal journal for self-growth. A few days ago, she was exploring the pages when she found a section for writing a letter to her future self. She found this intriguing and began jotting down her thoughts animatedly.
My curiosity piqued and she could sense it immediately. She assured me that she would show me the letter soon, and lo behold, she kept her word.
I glanced at her words, expecting to see a mention of her parents in the first sentence. But, to my utter delight, the first thing she had written about was her AMBITION. Yes, the caps here are intentional because I want to scream with excitement that my daughter chose to write about her ambition and aspirations over everything else first. To me, this was one of those parenting ‘win’ moments.
Uorfi Javed has been making waves through social media, and is often the target of trolls. So who and what exactly is this intriguing young woman?
Uorfi Javed (no relation to Javed Akhtar) is a name that crops up in my news feeds every now and again. It is usually because she got trolled for being in some or other ‘daring’ outfit and then posting those images on social media. If I were asked, I would not be able to name a single other reason why she is famous. I am told that she is an actor but I would have no frankly no clue about her body of work (pun wholly unintended).
So is Urfi Javed (or Uorfi Javed as she prefers) famous only for being famous? How does she impact the cause of feminism by permitting herself to be objectified, trolled, reviled?
