My Fearless Second Post for Huffington Post

Huff Post UK has published my second article. This marks another fearless milestone in my humble blogging career.

The article is entitled, TO THE ONE I LOVE

This post is a very personal “welcome back to writing” for me. I sincerely hope it stays productively that way for a long time to come. 

This whole Summer has just been wrought with one crazy challenge after another, (each more distressing than its predecessor) just to mess with me royally

Does Karma think I am made of Titanium?

Well, HELLO – I only mentioned that I am a “Titanium-plated Tofu”.

Remember the TOFU part, please, Mistress Karma.  

I am not invincible like Wolverine‘s blades. Nor am I blessed with Wolverine‘s swift recovery ability.   

I am a vulnerable and delicate tofu on the inside. No, seriously. Stop laughing.

The plating of Titanium on the outside helps to protect my fragile nature within. Not that it is doing a good job lately.

In any case, I am slowly working my way back to a fearless writing mode after being derailed for such a long while.

It is good to be able to sit in front of my mac, and NOT go – “Blink, Blink, and flatlined —————“. You get the picture. 

Also, I hope to get back to reconnecting with the blogging online community and reading up on their great blogs. I do miss that. 

I thank each and every one of you for your amazing friendship, kind patience, understanding and support. It means a great deal to me.


With deepest appreciation,



P/s Please do let me know what you think of my latest article in Huff Post too. It’s always a pleasure to hear from you 🙂

Being Afraid Is Human, But Staying Afraid Is A Choice.

      Dear Carol, Thank you for taking the time to write and share your kind comments. Yes, the tofu thing is very much a personal inside joke. Glad you found the article entertaining. Hugs x
