The question is not can you handle the situation. The question is can you handle your mind –Will Smith
Right now, I’m so addicted to Will Smith on social media. If you haven’t checked him out already, definitely do so @WillSmith on Instagram, Twitter and YouTube.
This episode was inspired by his YouTube video titled “Facing My BIGGEST Fear”. In this video, he says towards the end “The question is not can you handle the situation. The question is can you handle your mind? Can you manage the thoughts and emotions that are trying to poison
I’ve been reading the book ‘Inward’ by Yung Pueblo for the second time now (yes it’s that good). And I was so moved by his quote “Letting go doesn’t mean forgetting. It means we stop carrying the energy from the past into the present”, that I was super inspired to create this episode.
In today’s episode, I explore the idea of letting go and discuss how letting go holds us back from reaching our fullest potential. I delve into why letting go

The greatest artists like Dylan, Picasso and Newton risked failure. And if we want to be great, we’ve got to risk it too –Steve Jobs
Today’s episode is about a very personal yet inspiring email exchange I had 6 years ago with a very good friend of mine. Her name is Gita Sjahrir, we met back in business school and have been good friends ever since. She is the Co-Founder and Chief Rider of Ride Studio- Indonesia's first boutique indoor cycling studio. She is literally one of those super magnetic people that you simply can't resist being around. Back in 2012 when I was pregnant for my daughter,
Unexpressed emotions will never die. They are buried alive and will come forth later in uglier ways - Sigmund Freud
In today’s episode, I dive deep into questions that I keep on getting asked such as ‘how to get out of a rut', 'how to find the joy when in a rut', 'how to stay joyful when all you want to do is stay angry'.... One thing these questions have in common is the fact that they are about how we navigate our negative emotions. However, we aren’t taught how to deal with or process our emotions. As a result, we tend to
I was looking through old articles on my previous website, The PinkJoy.com, when I stumbled upon a piece I wrote back in Dec 2015 about how losing my job saved my life. It's such divine timing that I got to read this article again, just as I recently lost my job..yet again. It's so amazing how much growth I've experienced in the past 3 years, yet how relevant these lessons remain even today. I was inspired to share this 'oldie but a goodie' with you, and hope anyone going through similar situations can find something useful in it. MY DECEMBER 7th, 2015 self writes:
Not one drop of myself worth depends on your acceptance of me – Quincy Jones
In today’s episode, I talk about how to always feel ‘good enough’ without being so dependent on external acceptance/validation. Inspired by Quincy Jones quote “Not one drop of myself worth depends on your acceptance of me”, I discuss my thoughts on why we are constantly seeking external acceptance/validation and how this prevents us from taking risks and
Never give from the depths of your well, but from your overflow – Rumi
Today I delve into the idea of choosing to be happy first. A lot of us are taught as kids that it is selfish to choose our happy first, and I was inspired to explore this belief a bit more. As I consider myself a recovering people pleaser, the idea of choosing to be happy first has been something I’ve wrestled with for a while now. I believe strongly in serving others. However, what I’ve come to realize in my journey is that we can’t give what we don’t have, so we need to fill ourselves up first. I share how when I feel depleted, I’m not the happiest person in the world (I’m rather quite miserable). And I’ve come to believe it serves no one when we give from our empty wells. I discuss how I’ve discovered that the most selfless thing we can do is
As Charles Swindoll says, life is 10% of what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.
