Watch this gripping video by Author Glennon Doyle Melton to learn the art of accepting ourselves to lead an authentic and meaningful life.
It takes a lot of courage to leave the crowd and find your way home to a place called authenticity. Living life fully and completely is a blessing that very few get to experience during their lifetime. Life is a huge grinding mill that spares none. In a strife torn world of ours, it is very common to find people getting disillusioned with the whole concept of life.
Hassled by the trials and tribulations they face, people remain stuck in the shell they create for themselves. Swamped by feelings of depression and helplessness, they fear chartering the unknown. They refuse to budge from their existing circumstances.
Glennon Doyle Melton, in her video, talks about how she battled the emotional paralysis that had taken her in its grip for so long. She is a recovering bulimic, alcohol and a drug user. Her story encourages everyone to take charge of their lives by letting go of the fears and drenching in the spirit of life.
According to her, this can be done when people accept each other the way they are. Human beings are vulnerable species. It is absolutely acceptable to have our own phobias and expressing them is the best way to mitigate it.
Watch the following video that urges us all to awaken from living a mundane life to a masterful one.

If you want to get back to work after a break, here’s the ultimate guide to return to work programs in India from tech, finance or health sectors - for women just like you!
Last week, I was having a conversation with a friend related to personal financial planning and she shared how she had had fleeting thoughts about joining work but she was apprehensive to take the plunge. She was unaware of return to work programs available in India.
She had taken a 3-year long career break due to child care and the disconnect from the job arena that she spoke about is something several women in the same situation will relate to.
More often than not, women take a break from their careers to devote time to their kids because we still do not have a strong eco-system in place that can support new mothers, even though things are gradually changing on this front.
A married woman has to wear a sari, sindoor, mangalsutra, bangles, anklets, and so much more. What do these ornaments have to do with my love, respect, and commitment to my husband?
They: Are you married?
They: But You don’t look like it
Me: (in my Mind) Why should I?
Why is being married not enough for a woman, and she needs to look married too? I am tired of such comments in the nearly four years of being married.
I believe that anything that is forced is not right. I must have a choice. I am a living human, not a puppet. And I am not stopping anyone by not following any tradition. You are free to do whatever you like to do. But do not force others. It’s depressing.
