Hi everyone. How are you all. It has been so long since I posted here and I am really sorry for it. I got really busy making videos on my youtube channel Perkymegs and it takes hell lot of time, energy and creativity but I am not complaining as it is something which gives me the utmost happiness in the world. So today I thought of writing a personal blog post on why passion is really important in life and why you should follow it.
So few years ago I was really lost. I left my home for job and was all alone in a new city. Initially everything looked great and I made amazing friends. We used to hang out a lot, watch movies, explore the city every weekend and I enjoyed this new phase of life a lot. But with time all friends went to different places, some went to study abroad while some switched the company and slowly I started feeling bored & numb.
I was never an engineering kind of person although I was always among the top students in my class throughout my academic career. But what I really loved was the creative side of me singing, dancing, making sketches & doing skits. But I never thought of it as a career because in our society only Doctors & Engineers are considered worthy and so I joined the wagon thinking of it as the safe way to progress in life being from a simple middle class family.
But how many days can you survive in something when your heart is not into it. So slowly I started feeling a void in my heart waking up, going to office, coming back and hating the thought that you have to wake up next morning doing the same thing. I discussed with my family, my friends about why I feel this way and the same answer I got from everyone was that this is how life is. They also felt the same way but they had accepted it.
I was not ready to accept the advice because I believed in fairy tale stories and dreams. I had full faith that this was not the life I wanted for myself. I wanted to feel good everyday I wake up. So one fine day I decided that enough of this robotic life and feeling numb each day. I went to do a meditation course called Vipassana to give a break to my mind and it certainly gave me a clarity.
So when I came back I decided that I have to do something apart from my job & home that would make me happy and it is then that I started my fashion & beauty blog Perkymegs in January 2015. I suddenly found out a new kind of life. A life where I was so excited about each day coming back from work and writing about fashion & beauty. I felt like I had so much to tell to the world and I wrote so many blog posts one after the another.
Suddenly I felt shortage of time, my energy was like a 4 year old. I worked on my blog, my instagram and my youtube channel all at the same time alongwith a 9 to 5 job. I never ever experienced such kind of enthusiasm and energy since childhood. And this is how my life changed. Meanwhile people kept demotivating & judging like “O you are wasting your time” or “why are you doing something which is not paying you” or “plan a baby”. I totally ignored these people because they certainly don’t know what passion & happiness is so their advice was totally useless for me.
Today I have 100k youtube family, I wake up each day happy & content and I could not have done this had I listened to the world that life is supposed to be robotic and boring. I stopped, gave it a thought and followed my passion. I came out from that deep void & depression that I went through and hence I encourage each one of you out there to follow your passion.
You can never imagine what magic passion creates in your life. You will look forward to each day you are going to have. Break the norms of society & follow your heart. People can tell you only things that they experienced in their lives. Take control of your own life and make your own experiences. I am on my path of happiness and I wish you all the best for yours. Don’t worry spread your wings and fly because we have no boundaries. Believe in it and you will experience it.
Lots of Love
