nishaksquared Full-on #beastmode at the #gym! My #cardio today kicked my ass! But I kicked its ass right back (#RipperStreet + the dreamy #MatthewMacFadyen --- my fave #MrDarcy -- helped ) Moment to breathe right now. Almost done...time for #squats + #weights. (PS...that's my hot hubby chugging away hard in the background 🏽) Okay, enough down time! Let's get this s*** done! #fitness #challenge #dothework #makeitcount #finishstrong 9h

nishaksquared With my first sip of #tea, #meditating on so many #thoughts this #morning: how I spend my #time, the #changes I want to make in my #business, how I want to #dothework, what #success really looks + feels like, #how I can become the #writer I've always wanted to be, the #places I want to visit + what I'd do there, the #photos I want to take + the #pictures I want to #paint, pushing my #mind + #body to meet my #fitness #goals, the pretty ways I can show my loved ones just how much they mean to me, how I can treat myself like more of a #friend + what feels too good to deny. #Ruminating on quality in my #life in all ways, always. #Dreaming of living more fully, mindfully, deeply, lovingly. #streamofconsciousness #dreams #thoughts #ruminations #meditations #creativity #love #Thursday 2d

nishaksquared #HarukiMurakami made me realize that we experience #story with all our available senses. I was first introduced to his surreal #storytelling via #SputnikSweetheart, which I can't remember clearly, but I do remember the #feelings I was left with. Over the years, I've gobbled up nearly everything he's written. I love the way he writes + how he stitches so much strangeness + curiosity into the everyday. I love how he describes #love, #life, the #self + #melancholy. So now, post-#lunch + pre-#afternoon #grind, I'm taking a moment to get lost in his #imagination for awhile. #bibliophilia #reading #books #onmynightstand #colorlesstsukurutazakiandhisyearsofpilgrimage 1w

nishaksquared Hope y'all had a wonderful #MothersDay #weekend! #FiveThings that are super #sweet this #morning: (1) #HarukiMurakami's latest #paperback, waiting for its spine to be cracked open; (2) almond biscotti -- 'nuff said; (3) sandal weather!; (4) two weeks of my daily #workout... with the help of a few fantastic #Netflix #series (ed #unbreakablekimmyschmidt + #scrotalrecall! Nowadays, the #storytelling + #suspense of #Bloodline is pushing me harder!); and (5) how the couch -- or bed -- shake when my awesome hubby #laughs wholeheartedly! Start your #week right: what's tickling your goat this #Monday #morning? {PS...for more, check out my #GratefulGeek #blog later today -- I share my weekly #gratitude lists to spread good #cheer + hopefully #inspire you to do the same too! 🏽🏽🏽 nishaksquared.com} #MondayMotivation #goodmood #goodvibesonly 2w

nishaksquared I don't know if I was working off some pent-up #energy or if it was watching the intriguing first episode of #Netflix's #Bloodline, but today's #workout totally kicked my ass! But I feel my #endurance growing + my #body fighting to get #stronger. Just goes to show that you have to be #persistent + keep doing #yourbest. #motivation #energize #fitness #health #selfcare #bebetter #makeithappen 2w

nishaksquared Gorgeous sunny #spring day in #NYC! So far, #today has been awesome: great #morning #workout + delicious #breakfast with my favorite partner-in-crime, my darling hubby. Picked up my new @warbyparker #reece #glasses in midnight blue + took a neighborhood stroll. Now, relaxing in the sun in #pink + getting used to my new eyes! Next up, more #fun with my #Saturday #afternoon #selfie #nofilter 3w

nishaksquared when you turn people off, it means you have a strong #POV, which is so important when you're #beingboss + attracting your target #audience of people who will love, support + benefit from your #work. you're giving a reason to choose you, as opposed to anyone else. for more, check out my #blog post this week "#polarization is good for #business 🏽🏽🏽 nishakkulkarni.com/polarization-is-good-for-business/. 3w

nishaksquared Earlier #tonight, I was so frustrated. Two plans fell through. But it was a total #blessing in disguise: instead, I got to go out to #dinner with my mom + brother. We indulged in a three-course #Thai meal + just had #fun. Lots of #laughter ensued. I felt like a kid again. After I dropped them home, I took a little #stroll through my #neighborhood + couldn't help but look up at the pretty #night #sky + the #cherryblossoms (that never gets old). It was lovely. I'm just so #grateful to have #nights like tonight. It keeps me sane + reminds me what's important. #family #Tuesday #UES #NYC 3w

nishaksquared Thought of this #song the moment I stepped into the #park + saw this #site: "I could feel at the time/There was no way of knowing/Fallen leaves in the night/Who can say where they’re blowing/As free as the wind/Hopefully learning/Why the sea on the tide/Has no way of turning/More than this/You know there’s nothing/More than this/Tell me one thing/More than this/There is nothing."

nishaksquared Being a self-possessed #brand is like being a self-possessed person: it's about having a #calm, #confident + #composed #presence. You have to know who you are + what you stand for so that you can create the #work + #life you want.
