Surrender...and watch your inner blogger grow 

I always read my blog posts a day or two after I publish them - man is it a humbling experience. If ever I needed a reminder that I am a mere human who makes mistakes, this is the moment I get it like a slap in the face.

Making friends with the writer within me 

For years I have shunned her. Pretended she wasn't there. The writer within me. Yet she has always been me; and I have always been her. The writer.

Writing with freedom 

Writing more freely is about detaching from your writing. That does not mean being cold and distant from it, but truly loving it. Write in a way that embraces the four Buddhists noble truths of love. Maitri, Karuna, Mudita and Upeksha: loving-kindness, compassion, joy and equanimity.
