Limits don’t exist anymore, I look at bad and good as merely circumstances rather than life states. You just gotta know that everything in life is transient. Perhaps, I’ve seen the transition too many times, going from quiet and low nights, to beaming and glowing soulful mornings. After experiencing drastic changes over a night’s time, I’ve come to realize that life is always moving forward, and it is our choice to either move along with it, or wither and fade away. My runs in the morning make me appreciate the nature to an extent that is almost transcendental. I feel like I get this window of a sweet escape where I’m absolutely capable of achieving anything, as I’m one with the whole Universe. I have clear visuals of being one with the cosmos, of breathing with the life forms around me and exuding extreme power. Moving to Delhi was a tough call, I was consciously making the decision to leave behind a life of comforts and build it all from scratch. No clues, no resources, no help, just a blank canvas- with the luxury of being able to adorn it however I wanted.
I am experiencing a paradigm shift within me now, I’m aware of it because I’m really introspective. I have found this unidentifiable source of energy within me, that’s making me appreciate life in a way I would’ve never before. I genuinely see the light in the eyes of the kids on the streets and I feel happy when I see exchanges of love in public, or like that time when I went to the dogs shivering in the park where I was running and put a piece of cloth next to them so that they could be warm. I smile to myself, I cherish love and kindness around me. I’ve picks three qualities that I look for in people- ambition, integrity and generosity, that simple! I want to associate with people who have a vision to make it grand, are honest and sincere and are willing to give back for this beautiful gift of life. Most people miss out on dreaming big and philanthropy because they set limits on everything, they never realize how the only thing holding them back is themselves. I am attracted to that rare species that lives to pursue excellence and aims too high. I doubt there’s someone who loves socialising more than me, but the truth is that there’s only so many conversations you can have about this season’s latest collections and next vacations- I like digging deeper to find hopes, aspirations and the real soul behind the facade.
Truth is, when you think like the way I do, you’ll often be questioned and challenged but then it’s better to be true to yourself than live somebody else’s life. I enjoy this pursuit of knowledge and excellence, where I’m constantly expanding my horizons and exceeding personal bests. I guess this kind of consciousness only dawns after having faced certain levels of adversity- but I hope you at least try to get rid of the inhibitions that hold you back. Some mornings I wake up and think about how my life has taken this unconventional and unplanned track, but then I say to myself, “Live forwards, no regrets.”
Be kind, be compassionate, respect people’s emotions, aim high, give back, seek, explore, learn and live without fear. That might sound cliched, but man, life starts where fear ends. Exactly a year ago, I was in a dark place, and I told myself that 2014 was going to be MY year, for myself and I think I’ve done surprisingly well by even my standards. Launched a company, moved out of my parents’ place, living off my own earnings, building exciting models with start-ups, teaching Zumba, meeting incredible people, long distance running and there’s just so much more that I accomplished in this past year! The only focus for this year was growth and personal development but guess what, this was only the warm up- game time is NOW!
