I was reading a beautiful post by a fellow blogger over bloglovin describing her blogging journey. It sure was fabulous & inspiring. Now, it’s almost one year since I have started my blogging journey. But within these 11 months, I am a completely different person, from within. I have evolved as a woman, as a mother and as a human being. Today, I am going to share my evolution within last 11 months.
Who Was I?
An introvert… a shy girl always leaning along the wall. Never uttering a word, no matter how tempted I was while sitting in a group of friends. Thinking about thousand times before giving my opinion on a subject I was well versed of.
I never really went ahead to make new friends be it school, college and later corporate life. I had always been a kind of non social person generally taken as an egoistic person.
I lost many friends after getting busy with life. Some long term friendships took a back seat and now they are limited to birthday wishes. Sometimes I really consider myself to be quite an unfortunate person. I might never find that perfect friendship, I once thought I had.
How Blogging Changed Me Into A Better Person?
I would not say, I am not an introvert anymore. I still find myself talking to myself. This is never going to change. I am self sufficient. I sometimes fantasize about a life where it’s just me on a never-found-land. Maybe it’s bit selfish, but I do want to live for me for a moment.
Books Bring Out The Best Version Of You
Blogging demands to think & read more. Reading takes you to another level of intellectual. I was never into self help books. Within last few months, I realized what I have been missing on. It’s not only fiction that can excite your mind, while I was reading “The Secret”, I felt another level of joy & motivation.
‘Friends’ Is Just A Word
At every stage of life, we need different kind of people in life. I am in my early 30’s and I do not have time to go for long chat over coffee with my female friends. I am really not looking for shopping buddies. But I know I have a close knit group of women bloggers who are there to help me whenever I need any kind of help. Be it about my 3 years old or a wordpress plugin, they are pro in every department. Are we friends? Not necessarily.
Being Messy Is Alright
Organizing your life is a good thing. Planing really helps you achieve things within time limits. But I do not always go by clock. I have my setbacks and I do not regret taking a short break from my early morning tight schedule. Messy home does not look good, but it’s better than loosing your peace of mind over small things. Your home will stay messy until your kids give up being messy!
I Have Become More Sensitive To The Environment
I really can’t stand someone littering around. It’s once cause for which I can give up my shy nature for some time. There are wonderful people that I have come across online who are taking big initiative to protect environment. Until we do our individual duties, these initiatives can not succeed.
Being Irrelevant Is Okay
Sometimes, go out of routine. Do something weird and make memories to laugh later. Life is so short. Who knows what it is holding for us even if we are alive for longer than other. Plus You Live Only Once.
Parents Never Give Up On You
It does not matter if you are not doing good in your career or even if you fail. Your parents never judge you. Your happiness is their utmost importance. Your parents are always going to love you unconditionally. They always support you and care for your new ideas for life.
Having A Supportive Husband Makes Life Easy
I can’t ignore his love & support for my new passion. He exclaims with every milestone that my blog hits. I can share everything with him. He cheers me up when I am not in my usual “let’s do it” mood. He challenges me. There is no stopping for me now.
About The Shoot- Well, thanks to my lovely sister, it happened on a Sunday afternoon, when we were looking into each other’s eyes and decided to make something better out of it. What would I do without her?
