Today I renounce my shame. Today I come undone.

I read self-help and how to books, blogs and inspiration quotes on pinterest. I read them to seek help and benefit from them.

I read them to be better, to be less miserable. I read them between deliverables. Sometimes after meetings; meetings in which I had so much to say, but couldn’t; meetings where I tried a tad too hard. 
I read them after my friends update their vacation albums on facebook. I read it to understand myself better, to understand my roommate better. I read for a promising future and to comprehend the past. I read to unlearn what I grew up thinking was right, I read to learn the new right. I read them to be a better judge of right and wrong. I read to stop judging at all. I read to make sense of the world. I read to loosen up to the world. I read to accept and love myself the way I am. I read to be the woman I want to be.

I am a work in progress.


  1. No shame in that!I read self help books occasionally myself.They are enlightening to say the least, somehow give me an insight into what and why people do the things they do including myself. currently I am reading 'Quiet-the power of introverts in a world that can't stop talking' by Susan Cain. I love reading you blog although commenting here for the first time. Do put up a list of good self help books you really liked..will try them out.

  2. I love put into words so many of the things that I think! And doing things between deliverables? Sounds like my life. I can SO relate.

    1. Ameena, thanks a lot. oh yeah about my thing of doing things between delverables, need to fix my ADD :D
