Making Progress

Earlier this year, I wrote about my son, and the delay in his language skills. Despite my hesitation and concerns, I went ahead with the doctor recommended evaluation, and soon after, speech therapy. The speech evaluation was just as frustrating as I had thought it would be. We had an hour to convince my son … Continue reading Making Progress

Awkward Hugs

I can't pinpoint when it all started. I don't know if it stemmed from childhood, or some strange habit that I acquired. Somewhere or somehow, I decided that I did not like hugs. More accurately, any physical contact. I try to be pretty upfront about it. Professionally, I make it a point to be the … Continue reading Awkward Hugs

Unwanted Commentary

I remember her scathing remark. The disapproving tone echoing throughout the otherwise quiet room. The hospital floor was full, and so, my dad had to temporarily share a room. My siblings and I visited him as often as we could - sometimes together, sometimes splitting days depending on our schedule. I was with one of … Continue reading Unwanted Commentary

Not the Favorite

I look at the picture with both feelings of nostalgia and pain. At the time, I had only been a mother for all of two months. I had no idea what I was doing, and I was scared most of the time. And yet, there I was, in a simple photo with a small smile, … Continue reading Not the Favorite

Surviving a Goodbye

Someone within our family just recently passed away. I didn't know them too well. I did know of their life, and the struggles they've had to endure.  Sadly, they left behind a young child.

Learning to Communicate

Not to toot my own horn, but I've been told from time to time that I have decent communication skills in the workplace. I am well-spoken, clear and professional. I am able to speak publicly to both large and important audiences without hesitation. My writing skills reflect the same. I sometimes am asked as to … Continue reading Learning to Communicate

Travel Diaries: Toronto

I was particularly excited about my business trip to Canada. I have a passport stamp from there, but it was only because I was in transit there to another country. That doesn't even count ! Full disclosure: My time in Toronto was very short. I was here on business, so the opportunity to really see … Continue reading Travel Diaries: Toronto
