”Quit your Job, Buy a ticket, Get a tan, Do what you love, Fall in Love,
Ok, so not quite as extreme, but you get the point.
3 years ago, I graduated with what I call a ‘Masters in the ART of communication’ and set off on a career path that promised to emancipate me. 3 years in, I find myself questioning, what’s changed?
What’s changed to me, is hardly recognizable.
For the fact that human nature backs the claim that ‘most people get so consumed in the monotony of life, that they don’t have the time to know themselves (and by extension, what makes them tick?)’.
As a result, their life focus is on mere survival and getting by. Of late, I have definitely felt this way!
So I ask myself, have I found my passion and purpose?
Will my pensive mind finally allow me some form of chartered escape?
Granted, my mind and heart are hardly ever in tandem, but yet I see myself as a beautiful flawed individual. An individual whose spirit thrives amidst this organised chaos that threatens to torment, yet empower me.
Do I have a dream? and if so, when is the right time to start living it?
If you think I have answers to all these questions, what a cop-out!
But wait, even though I have no answers, I am not entirely despised by any of this confusion. Isn’t life meant to be a journey and not a destination? Nietzsche writes, “you must have chaos in you to give birth to a dancing star” –
If this means positioning myself at a point of difference, I’m game!
This brings me to what sparks the creation of my blog, and it’s the simple acknowledgement of something that I DO KNOW.
And that is,
it is my sole responsibility to seek (or create) a passion that I can somewhat attribute as a life purpose.
The truth is that not everyone gets to do what they love (its just not practical!), but we all have a shot at it!
I have always had a passion for writing as much as I have for fashion. I love meeting new people. I’m meant to meet people<img src=”https://i2.wp.com/cdncache-a.akamaihd.net/items/it/img/arrow-10×10.png?resize=10%2C10&ssl=1″ alt=”” width=”10″ height=”10″ /> and love them. Aside from being an avid reader, I am fascinated with understanding relationships (of all kinds) and boast a voracious appetite for travel.
So in a nutshell, I am writing this blog not because it sums up everything I love, but also because I wish to share with the world some of my most fabulous (and not so fabulous) life experiences in a bid to understand my existence and purpose in this universe.
I hope that if it is genuine,
that you may follow my blog as I embark on a chaotic journey seeking to change my world (and the world of those that surround me), one step at a time..
