Portrait of a very special person in my life. Hope you like it!
Goddess of Nature
A quick sketch using a gel pen while I was travelling, so kindly ignore the crooked lines. You’ll never know what you can create unless you put some action to it. Hope you like it!
With Ganesh Chaturthi (celebration about the birth of the Elephant-headed god, Ganesha) round the corner I thought of sketching a concept art. I had a great time creating it. Let me know how you like it.
We all at some point in life just wish to be Famous . But, do we really know how to deal with it? what kind of a responsibility it brings? We can only see the attention and recognition that the famous celebrities/personalities get but not what comes uninvited(mostly) with fame.
What if I told you that from now on whatever you do, wherever you go, whatever you eat, whom ever you meet will all be recorded for masses to see. In short your personal life is public. Famous people are role models for people & they want to know more & more about their daily life. It depends how you deal with it as fame is like a superpower- one can either inspire the world or destroy it!
I am very happy with my personal space and the freedom to do what so ever. But, wouldn’t it be amazing to be known for your work/art. Knowing that you are making a difference in people’s lives! I personally would like to be anonymous. What are your thoughts about being famous?
We often have those moments when we feel Guilty about making certain decisions for ourselves. I’ll share one of my funny stories with you. I know! what could possibly be funny with the word ‘guilt’ in it. I come from a conservative Indian family where all the decisions are made by the elderly of the family. They decide everything for each and every member of the family. I however, was a rebel since childhood as I wanted to make my own decisions. Being a girl, that was too much for my family to accept. But, somehow I managed to convince them and followed my dreams.
They are happy about how things turned out for me and were very supportive. But deep inside somewhere I often felt a little guilty as I literally put up a fight with my very own family. In a way sometimes I thought I was being selfish. I find it funny now because, I know that I did nothing wrong. Maybe it could have been done or said in a different way but ultimately what matters is that I am happy and so are they. All I can say is that understand your self-worth and fight for it without feeling guilty!
The one thing I asked myself before I realised I loved you,
“What if I disappear?”
would that make a difference in your life?
would you remember me?
would you think about me?
would you cry for me?
would you wish I came back?
And each time I asked these questions to myself,
the answer was always a big YES..
It happens to the best of us:
Sending a text to the wrong person.
When someone catches you staring at them.
Going in for the hug when they are going in for the handshake.
Tripping in a public place and pretending like nothing happened.
When you go in for a high-five but no one bothers to high-five you back.
When someone smiles at you and you smile back only to realise they were smiling at a person behind you.
Pushing a door that says ‘Pull’
Understand this One thing- You have all the Potential it Needs to Become what you Dream to be someday. Have the courage to listen to your gut feeling..what do you want?..go ahead.. answer that! Tough question right? Well, it’s easy..listen to your heart not your mind..you always know what you want from life but you some how ignore it saying that it’s a stupid career choice. In today’s times as people grow up they tend to think in a more practical way. Money becomes no.1 priority. Parents, peers, society, everybody tells you that if you become an engineer you’ll be successful, if you become rich you could have whatever you want but nobody tells you how to get happiness.
You often come across people who say that, “That idea came to my mind years back I wish I had acted then.”, “I don’t have what it takes to reach there, Successful people have luck in their favour.”, “I am not educated enough.” The answer is simple, YOU didn’t TRY. You can merely see the end result of great people..not their struggle and strong desire to get where they are now. Don’t be afraid to take the risk. If you win, awesome..and if you lose you learned from it. Just don’t quit..that’s the worst thing you can do.
Like the saying goes, The disease known is half cured. Similarly Knowing what you really want.. knowing your exact goal, and you are half way through success. YOU become what you think. You wonna be an artist, a musician, a doctor, an author, an entrepreneur you name it..YOU can be it. It’s no rocket science, it just needs your hardwork and strong intentions. Social sites are making billions of dollars while you are just randomly surfing and doing nothing productive for yourself. Technology is your servant, don’t let it rule your life. Stop wasting your precious time and work towards your goal. It’s never too late to Start. So, stop Procrastinating and get that S#!t done.
You may think you’re a Pro when it comes to hiding your insecurities, but signs of low self-esteem are sometimes so sneaky that you may not even realize what you’re doing. Everything from your body language to the way you act socially gives others clues about your sense of self-worth. But knowing is the first step to improving your self-esteem and finding the inner strength to live a life that makes you genuinely happy.
1. You compare yourself with others:
You know you are passionate and talented enough to be successful in achieving your goals and dreams. But, you doubt that at some point when you look at more successful people and decide to quit as you feel that you can’t achieve that kind of success. Don’t quit! no matter what, you will thank yourself in a few years that you didn’t give up on your passion.
2. You stare at your phone during a social situation:
You are constantly looking for some excuse to escape from an interaction with someone so you keep looking at your phone and seem distracted. During a conversation you rarely look the person in the eye. You fidget a lot. You try to keep the conversation as short as possible.
3. You apologize for everything:
If someone bumps into you on the street, do you apologize? If u accidentally stub your toe on the table, do you apologies to the table? When you don’t agree with someone, you first say I’m sorry and then state your opinion? People with low self-esteem sometimes apologies even when it’s not their fault. Next time, don’t say sorry when you sneeze.
4. You take constructive criticism personally:
Be it from your loved one, a co-worker or a well-wisher. If they criticize you, you feel offended and take the whole matter emotionally. You may get yourself in an argument which you may later regret.
5. When someone compliments you:
You just don’t believe them. You think of all the possible reasons as to why are they so nice to you or if that was a sarcasm. You have no idea how to react to a compliment and end up giving a fake forced smile. Just accept the compliment graciously my dear and say those 2 simple words, “Thank You!” with a genuine smile. If you find yourself doing a lot of these things, it may be time to take a good, hard look at your self-esteem. You might find that life is a lot easier (and more fun) when you’re more self-assured. Get up, Smile and find the inner strength to live a lovely life and feel the joy. Stay Blessed!
