Hello and welcome to My Inner Shakti!
My name is Parita, and I’m so glad you decided to click over (either on purpose or accidentally) to my little corner of the internet! Shakti is the Sanskrit word for strength/power. My goal is to share the things that feed my inner strength. For me, that always includes my husband, my family, and my friends. Be prepared to know more about them than you probably care to!
I’m known for being a passionate individual. My interests range from health and fitness to cooking to reading to just living life and having fun. With that being said, even after six years of blogging, My Inner Shakti doesn’t fit into a specific genre. Think of it as a lifestyle blog with a [mostly] healthy twist!
If you’re wondering what that means, join the club…just kidding…kind of! Based on my track record, you’ll likely find posts about one or more of the following things – Vishnu (my husband) and our marriage, impending motherhood (baby boy coming in July 2017!), my fun and crazy family, food (you’ll quickly come to learn that I live to eat!), exercise in some shape or form, personal development type stuff, books I’m reading, movies I’ve seen, articles I’ve read, the Indian culture, etc.
In the real world I’m actually known for being a fairly organized person, but when it comes to this blog, I want to share ALL THE THINGS! If I knew then what I know now, I probably would’ve named it My Inner Organized Chaos!
Other somewhat important things to know about me…
- I was born and raised in Rhode Island, but Atlanta is and always will be home. Mostly because that’s where our families are!
- I’m a graduate of both the University of Georgia (undergrad) and the Georgia Institute of Technology (MBA). It’s possible!
- I’m a People and Culture Project Manager for a global accounting organization. Say what you will about accountants, but it’s a fun job that allows me to work with people all over the world on several different projects at any given time.
- Vishnu and I have been together for 12 years and married for almost five ! So far, we’ve lived in Fort Lauderdale, Miami, and St. Petersburg. We currently live in Chicago, and thankfully, this city is home for at least three years while Vishnu finishes his Radiology residency.
- I’m a chocoholic (that’s putting it mildly). I love to laugh. I have a younger sister (my mini me!). I’m a very emotional person who wears her heart on her sleeve. I love love. I want to travel the world. I hate shopping but love clothes/shoes. I’m weirdly obsessed with skincare/beauty products but don’t really use a ton. I’m somewhat of a pop culture junkie. I love to write (hence having a blog!).
Whether you decide to read regularly or not, I hope you walk away from My Inner Shakti with a smile on your face. Thank you so much for stopping by!
