A promise to myself


Long back I promised myself, a much younger version of me

That I would respect myself, that I would always to it see

That I did the things that I wanted to do; what was expected.

But would also do the things I loved even if they were unexpected.


‘Life is an opportunity that knocks only once, make the most of it.’

This is the creed that I have lived by, what in my heart does sit.

I preach this to my children for its helped me live a fulfilling life.

I have achieved, have accomplished; even when I faced strife.


All my life I have looked ahead, planned and driven myself,

For my heart is an eternal optimist that knows no dry spell.

I am no more the naive girl that embarked on her journey.

Today I am forty plus, a mature woman, living my life happily.

About Sonal Singh

I believe that life is a repertoire of anecdotes. The various situations that we encounter, the many incidents of every day, the people we meet, our conversations with them; all make life a melange of tales. And, that is what I attempt to capture through my writing. My cooking is no different! It reflects my love for travel and my love for innovation. The kitchen is my happy place. So, even though by vocation I am a recruiter (www.rianplacements.com), by passion I am a writer, home chef and a hodophile.
