Welcome To The LITMO Life
I’m Anjali, a lawyer that decided to quit my traditional 9-5 job to travel full-time, found love, and got married after 8 weeks of dating! I describe myself as a girl who believes in feminism, LGBTQ rights, non-monogamy, veganism, a child-free life, the end of racism & love, writing about it all.
The world has become, in many ways, a scary place with too much “otherism.” We’re all actually the same, but we’ve forgotten that – and I truly believe sharing our unique experiences, traveling, and opening our minds again can change our world.
In this blog, I share stories – often my stories, but other peoples’ as well, along with tips, tricks, and how-tos to help you start your own brand new adventure – whether it’s a life of travel, finding love, or just stepping outside your comfort zone.
So what’s LITMO? When I was in college, I used to text my dad with my several worries. “What if I don’t get into law school?” “What do I even really want to do with my life?” “This person was already making millions by the age of 23!”
My dad, being the wise and patient man he was, answered each and every one of these texts with the following message: “Live in the moment only.” What he was trying to impart to me was that while it was fine to attempt to plan for the future, it was critical to realize that the only moment we actually had was the one we were in.
As I got older, and my worries continued and even grew in size, my dad continued to remain patient and wise. His texts, however, got progressively shorter until he was just texting me back “LITMO.”
Today, I believe strongly in the idea that humans should be chasing their own bliss – in order to best figure out how to contribute to making the world a better place. For me, a big part of that is learning to live in the moment with an awareness of my fellow humans and their stories. This blog is for anyone that wants to design their own life to be happy – but also help change the world.
Welcome to the LITMO Life – let’s start living in the moment together.
Very rarely is it acceptable to be an outright asshole. Most people don't take super kindly to other people being rude or obnoxious or straight-up mean, with poor intentions. It's normally clear how to react in those situations: shut it down. That said, most people -...
I was the Anti-Bride. That's no secret. Wedding planning wasn't something I was ever going to love doing. It's just not in my nature and I didn't care enough about the wedding to try to pretend that I loved it. I was very, very excited to marry Jonathon and spend the...
Marriage. It's a strange - yet awesome - thing. At its core, marriage is the idea that you pick one person - however you decide to pick them (be it love or lust or companionship) - and go, "You're my favorite, I want you!" And then you hope that they want you back and...
