April was an emotional month for me with my energy level fluctuating between high and low. Nevertheless, there were a lot of learnings and growth.
At the beginning of the month, I was interviewed by AUS Tamil TV in my local tongue (Tamil). They were kind enough to come to my house to not only shoot the interview but to showcase my other talents (Veena, art). It was a beautiful day and the weather was generous to us. Shooting in my backyard 🥰 was a dream come true!
I am very appreciative of this unexpected exposure of my entrepreneurship. It validates my 13 years of hard work. One of the other reasons why I put myself out there is to share my lessons and to inspire other women.

After almost a year, with normalcy being restored to a certain degree, we decided to go on a holiday during the Easter break with friends. The Airbnb we hired had mountains as our backdrop and a beach view. Even the Sun God decided to grace us with his presence and we had two beautiful, summer-like days enabling us to enjoy the sand and water. I had so much fun, that coming back from our holiday, I felt like I needed another holiday. I’m sure you can relate to this feeling?
One Sunday afternoon, tired from our meal prep for the week, I was resting and scrolling through my Facebook Feed. I saw an opportunity to be a speaker at an event and I jumped straight on it. So, if you are in Melbourne and not doing anything this weekend, come over to the Healthy Body and Soul expo at Brunswick to support local businesses and enjoy fun activities. To be honest, I am a little nervous-excited about it. I hope I can channel this energy to better serve my audience at the event.
April also had three short weeks, thanks to the numerous holidays on Mondays and Good Friday accompanied by school holidays. I felt like I was pulled in a hundred directions. Anybody else felt that or is it just me?
I also delivered my first webinar on wealth building for women under the Lemonade Stand brand and it was such an amazing session. My guest, Miral had an amazing story to share and lots of wisdom for women wanting to build a property portfolio. The aim was to leave women inspired and the end result was achieved. The next one will be at the end of this month. If you are interested, stay tuned for my mid-month newsletter for details or reply to this email and I will keep you posted.
There is this pattern in my life. When there are quiet periods, my brain is bored and I tend to take on too many things. This month was a little bit like that. I had quite a few activities scheduled which made me anxious (aka pushing my comfort zone) and I have decided to tone it down a notch. It is important that we don’t stagnate but overdoing things to be in a constant state of panic is not good for the body or mind.
This is one of the important things that we need to learn as women – regulating our energy by identifying periods in our lives where we need to take it easy. For some of you, it can be around your monthly time. For others, it can be around school holidays when children are at home and mothers need to juggle professional and personal life. Defined conditions like this can be worked around, but if there is something else that is constantly bothering you (mentally or physically), pause and notice. Find out the root cause. If not, reach out to a friend or even to me and I will do my best to help you with a pattern that you struggle with.
For me, personally, I assumed my body was back to normal just because I am able to do a lot of the things (taking music classes, doing yoga) that I did pre-surgery. Looks like my body wants to take it slow and that’s what I need to do. I am still going to stretch my comfort zone – just a little.
Good energy means that you can do great things, so take care of yourselves.
That’s it for this month.
Until next time…
