I see so many of my friends get inspired and start something, only to lose heart and stop mid-way. Most cases that I see are due to pure laziness and procrastination, and nothing major. And as expected, they regret it, start again and the same cycle continues. Not many are blessed with a second opportunity, so I urge every single person reading this – if you have something that you are extremely passionate about, if that is something you dream and think about day and night, make time for it! Because that’s one regret no one should never have.
It’s funny how sometimes the most mundane and unexpected things make such pretty accessories. This pink bow belt is actually a tie which I found in my sister’s husband’s closet. A slim pink tie which I have no idea why he had in the first place! I grabbed it for myself and have been using it as a belt ever since. Inspiration is all around us and ideas are waiting to burst from the ordinary, the plain and the boring. It just takes a new pair of eyes and a little curiosity to discover them.On a different note, by May I will be completing another year of fashion blogging and I feel so happy to still be doing something that I love, that keeps my creativity engaged (and contributes to my wallet!). When I look at people around me constantly cribbing about lack of time to pursue their passion, I am overcome with a sense of overwhelming gratitude that I have the time, inclination and resources to do whatever I want, whatever I love. The busiest man always has the time for everything. If you have the inclination, you will somehow find a way to do what you love, although I believe that timing too, has an essential part to play. Be it painting or blogging or writing, I am able to do what I love every single day, and it’s a great feeling!
