There are two things that I have always wanted to have on the internet. One, my own blog and two, a proper choreographed dance video of myself (Yes, I apologize, but it might come on your Facebook wall someday 😀 ).
I always wanted to write and the main intention behind it was to express myself. I have always believed that listening and sharing perspectives always bring people closer and together. But, I don’t know what stopped me from doing it. Writing and sharing is a very vulnerable thing. I feared that my inability to write in certain standards will make people look down upon me, or maybe I was plain lazy.
But this very fear has affected my growth. Growth in terms of expressing myself in a much better way. I think I am super bad at writing, because of which, while expressing myself self I tend to explain a lot. For example, if I want to talk about a certain idea, I will use three or four sentences extra which all mean the same.
If I had started earlier, you would have found my writing crisper, more interesting. So the best way to get on the point was to start writing. Maybe I had to take the challenge of improving myself, maybe the intention of expression was not enough. Being on the so-called “Speaking industry” (The Storytellers, The StoryYellers, and Presenters’ Club) which is all about the stories, sharing platforms, and expressing. I needed to pull up my writing socks. But at the same time, it is not always about getting better. Sharing and expressing is liberating, you get to connect with so many people and more importantly yourself. It’s always about the things you always wanted to do.
I asked myself “Why today?”. I again asked myself “Then when?” and I had no answer. So why not today. A big part of this decision was during the talk I had with myself while I was hiking down to Kande from Australian Base Camp. I just hiked down alone, leaving my friends behind and started contemplating and talking to myself to start writing. I was thinking about the various topics, very close to my heart, that I could write on. I was like “Amul, you need to do this shit! there is nothing to lose”. (Power, our nature gives to you).
I could have just written in my normal paper diary. But it is not about that, I had got inspired to write and share because some of my friends have their own blogs and they share such beautiful thoughts that inspire me. And I hope someone, just like I did, gets inspired to take that step they always wanted to through this as well. It would be a blessing for me.
And I already feel I have written a very unconvincing first writing Haha! I will get there, eventually, we all do. I am very unaware of the various writing techniques, if you guys know, please let me know and do give feedback as well.
And also, if you want to have a dance video together, we can try 😉
I feel happy about writing this. Thank you whoever read this till the end. You have no idea how much it means to me <3
