Breaking Free

I’ve been wanting to regularize my blogging for a while now. Umpteen times I began writing, but failed. I failed everytime these past few months – the topic was not good enough, the subject matter was complicated, the content was very personal and I, being protective of the “imaginary” image that I have, thought it was best to wait for this block to pass and ended up not writing anything.

Today, as I pick my metaphorical pen, I’m not worried about what anyone will think, or feel, or say. Today, I’m writing to regain my passion for writing. Today, I’m writing for myself. A few likes and comments should never have been the yard stick to measure whether I did well or not. The true measure of this whole exercise is to find happiness and getting to know the meaning of life and its intricacies while introspecting.

I still remember the initial days when I had begun blogging. I used to unlock the various mysteries of life and pen down my thoughts about the same. That gave me happiness and as a result, even in the middle of exam preparations, I used to find both- time and words – to convey what I felt was the right thing to do and the correct way to live.

Somewhere down this self awareness and self actualization journey, I fell prey to seeking validation from others. Although, I’ve always known that this path only led to gloom and despair, yet the temptation of praise and adulation got the better of me.

Today as I cast away these borrowed shackles, it makes me feel light and happy again. Now, I know that my happiness should be derived from my ability to write freely and not from other people’s praises, which may or may not be genuine. Now, I know this for sure that my days of blogging have come back, where words shall be my companions and the world shall be my subject.

In this journey of life, keep your eyes on the wonderful backgrounds. They pass by only once and if you are busy tredding on that worn road, then they are lost forever.
