Finding our “Moxie” – why every girl needs to make her voice heard

After a week that seemed too long and never ending post the new restrictions imposed after the surge in covid cases, I was looking forward to Friday. Thursday night in particular as it would be my last night of Netflix binge watching for quite some time now. My 6 year old had her last of… Continue reading Finding our “Moxie” – why every girl needs to make her voice heard

Can love last a lifetime? #FictionMonday

“Yes” she whispered into the phone. The word I had been waiting to hear, my heart pounded so loudly that I thought everyone around could hear it.

Epiphany #FictionMondays

Tears streamed down my cheeks, I kept wiping them away and blinked my eyes focussing on the road ahead. The last thing I wanted was to cause an accident.

A red roof with an opening to the sky so that I could gaze at the stars at night, the hearth that brought warmth as we sat huddled around, steaming cups of… Continue reading A place called Home #FictionMonday

Free #FictionMondays

How I wish I was a bird, free to fly away from the pandemonium that surrounds me, soar over mountains and valleys, never stay at one place but keep exploring. “You are a girl, don’t ever entertain such thoughts”, they said. Study well and help your mother in household chores. “Girls shouldn’t dare to dream… Continue reading Free #FictionMondays
