Shweta Abhijit Borase

Welcome!! I’m Shweta, and this is my blog. I’m a 31-year-old, mother, blogger, writer, sophophilic, dreamer, music lover, dancer, self-expressionist, optimistic, an avid book reader, a stoic, experimental cook and a Sentimentalist. I live in Pune (India) with my cute (read: brat) son (aged 8), and an easy-going husband.

The Butterfly Soul is a personal memoir and journey-of-life types blog where I write about daily life, dreams, faiths, hopes, ambitions, relationships, family, travel, occasional poetry and Short  stories and definitely an overdose of Quotes and anything else that strikes my fancy. .

My idea of the perfect day is an early morning Run while listening to Soulful Music, then a few hours of hustle and bustle… readying the little one, preparing lunch, handling accounts and deals for my father’s business, etc. Late Afternoons usually are spent reading books, writing short stories & other stuff. Homemade Dinner preparations & surfing the web mark the end of my day. I am also perusing a PHD in Creative Writing.

Let’s see, what else you should know about me!?

I am a believer in God, Karma (deeds) & Success by Hard work mantra.

I am passionate about eating good food, and I am currently on a Organic and Intermittent Fasting Diet.  I buy fresh and local as much as possible.

I recently took up running, and I love to hit the jogging track first thing in the morning with my iPod turned up and the wind at my back.

I like to stay busy! When I’m not online, I like to cook, read, shop, write, jog, listen to music and keep yelling at my Kid (Just Kidding…get It)

Quotes : I live by.

The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.

Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.
