Ok…so it’s been a minute since I’ve posted here. And I’m not going to lie, I miss posting here a few times a week.
If I’m being honest, I don’t know how long I’m going to keep this blog up. At the same time, I don’t want to let it go. Just thinking about it brings tears to my eyes. I’ve been sharing my life on here for nearly 10 years!
The other day, when I was talking to Vishnu about all the things I want to do with my coaching business, he mentioned halting MIS the blog, and I looked at him like he had 10 heads. However, in my heart, I know that I don’t have a ton of free time to blog. Not that this space is super professional, but it does take time to type your thoughts out.
So here’s what I’m committing to right now. I’m keeping MIS alive for now, and I’m going to take all the pressure off. This means I’ll blog when I have time. I’ve always done things my way on here, and there’s no reason that should change. In fact, when I get some time, it’ll be nice to document the whole entrepreneur side of me.
With that, I’m a business owner, y’all! Like I have an LLC. Isn’t that nuts?! I’ll definitely share more as things unfold, but I’m working on a few big things right now and trying to keep in mind that I can’t go into this at full speed right now. I still have my full time job, Vishnu’s still a fellow, and Kaiden is still my sweet mama loving toddler. Good things take time. And my speedy self is coming to terms with that.
Anyways, life lately looks a little hectic, but I LOVE it. I’ve never felt so happily tired in my life!
With that, I thought I’d share some fun prompts to give you guys a more micro look into my life right now.
Habit I’m trying to break: iPhone use before bed. I’ve set the same goal for myself for a long time now, and truth be told, I’m still working on it. But I have made some progress in the last couple of weeks, so I’m hopeful. This (bad) habit is directly related to my poor sleep quality, hence, one I know I need to fix now. Now that I’ve shared here, I feel a little more accountability, so I’ll definitely report back.
Habit I’m trying to continue: 64 ounces of water daily. My commitment to this comes from the headaches I get first thing in the morning when I don’t drink a ton of water.
Best experience of the summer: This summer was definitely a little different than we original planned, but that’s ok. It is what it is and pretty much out of our control, so I’ve come to terms with it. It’s hard to pick just one experience, but for me, it’s all the family time we got. This summer was going to be filled with lots of travel (work + personal), and because all of that has been nixed for now, we’re home all the time. There are some cons to that, but I love that we’ve gotten so much quality time with just the three of us.
Getting me excited for fall: Do not judge me, but I’m excited for sweatshirts. Vishnu got me two new Nike sweatshirts a while back, and I can’t wait to put them to use. I’ll go from tees and sweatpants to sweatshirts and sweatpants, and I’m all for it. I also can’t wait for cool weather runs and cuddling up under a big blanket on the couch.
Current thing I’m learning to love about myself: In full transparency, it’s the same thing it’s been for years. I’m learning to love my body and all the amazing things it’s done/doing for me. I’ve accepted that this is likely going to be a lifelong journey for me, but I’m giving it my all. I gained some weight last October-December, and my goal was to get back in the gym and lose what I gained + become stronger. Welllll, while not totally impossible, I haven’t exactly done that. So instead of aiming for a number, I keep movement + nourishing foods in mind, and use those thoughts to push me in the right direction. Always a work in progress, y’all!
Current thing I do love about myself: My ability to live in the moment and not get totally overwhelmed with everything that’s going on and/or about to happen in the next few months. This is a 180 from how I used to be, so I’m proud of myself for creating a mindspace of flow and joy and knowing that things will work out as they should. Not to say we shouldn’t work hard, but trusting the process.
Book(s) I really can’t wait to read: SO MANY! After I finish my mandatory read for my coaching program, I’m looking forward to reading Maybe You Should Talk to Someone.
Task I haven’t done yet that’s driving me crazy: Hmmm…I’m sure there’s something, but I can’t really think of it right now. I feel like I need to find a way to get myself more organized, if that’s considered a task…?!
On the docket for this weekend: Vishnu’s on call, so it’ll be just me and K. If the weather cooperates, I hope we can squeeze in some outdoor playdates as well as some time with my sister and BIL. I also want to take K out to get ice cream. My boy takes after his mama, and therefore, loves anything sweet, especially ice cream. I thought it’d be fun to go somewhere, sit, and lick our cones! 🙂
With that, I hope y’all have a great rest of your week. I’ll see ya (on here again) when I see ya!

Hey Parita, I’ve been reading your blog for a few years now and when I read that you may consider shutting down MIS I was kinda sad.. I totally understand how difficult it must be for you to juggle everything on your plate, but maybe don’t say goodbye just yet to the blog!
Look after yourself, do everything you need to and maybe when you get a moment hop on to your blog so we can all catch up with what you’ve been upto and gain some inspiration on multi-tasking.
Hope you and your family are staying safe during this difficult time.
Much love and hopefully see you with a new post soon. Goodluck with the new business and everything else you also have going on! 🙂
Hi Anu! Thanks for your message. It brought a BIG smile to my face. I think I’m going to keep up with it no matter how sporadic. Not blogging on here would create too big of a hole in my heart. 🙂 HAHA!
Hope you and your family are safe and healthy!
