Be happy with less.

A life of abundance - 

Is about abundance within,

Not abundance in the exterior world.

No need for being available for everyone,

No need for making sure everyone is happy with me,

No need for stocking my fridge and pantry with excess,

No need to plan my ca...

Step forward.

Don't tell me you are tired,

Don't tell me it's too dark,

Don't tell me the moonlight doesn't light your path,

Step forward.

You may feel the trembling of the ground underneath you,

You may hear foxes rumbling to ambush you,

Rocks may be thrown at you,

You may ge...

After a catching up with a long-time friend, and later being in a place of inspiration for me – which happens to be Disneyland, this poem came to me.

First come the weddings, then come the children and divorces.

Through it all, I’m a by-stander.

Always there as a friend,

When you found the right partner,

You found the buddha in you.

When you found the right partner,

He sees right through you.

There is no where to hide,

There is no need to hide,

For his love is the love of gods.

He sees the Buddha in you;

You see the Buddha in him.

Together you...

Have you ever seen yourself captured in a video, perhaps during a family vacation or when giving a presentation at work? Do you cringe when you see yourself on video?

My reaction to seeing myself on screen is pure disgust. I HATE my facial expression, the sound of my vo...

Many people have the inner inkling that they meant to do something bigger, something more aligned with who they are, something more fulfilling than the work they do today.

Some have taken the step to question themselves, and a few actually take the courageous step to st...

A poem inspired by a short love story between a great man and I. Choosing to love is easy, but falling in love is not a choice.

Two swimmers wanted to swim in the pool.

Swimmer one is me; Swimmer two is you.

I jumped in the shallow end – cautious like a bunny;

You jumped i...

I wrote this poem, about six weeks after seeing my therapist, feeling more empowered by knowing who I am.

I never dreamed of becoming a hero.

Never dreamed of becoming a doctor, a fireman, or an astronaut.

The closest I came to dreaming – was the dream of becomi...

This poem was inspired by my therapist’s analogy that my life is currently in winter season, and that my task for the week is to “do nothing”.

When life is winter,

We hold on to fallen leaves.

Reminiscing the Autumn,

Before white took our trees.

We wait and wait,

Like an eag...

My close friend, who resides in the U.S., recently surprised her parents with an unexpected visit home to Asia. She recorded her father’s reaction as he walked out of his bedroom and saw his daughter sitting in the living room. “What on earth is going on?” he questione...

I have mastered the art of feeling guilty. When I eat every chip in the bag, I feel guilty. When I’m late to a meeting or to responding to text messages or emails, I feel guilty. When I skip the gym, I feel guilty. When I don’t get done what I expect to in a day, I fee...

I wrote my first poem, one week after a break up.

He is a Kite,

Flying high in the sky,

Attached gently to a reel.

The reel is his home.

When the sky is too crowded with other kites,

When the sky is cloudy,

When the sky is torrential,

He yearns for the reel to bring him home.
