Setting the bar

When I measure my selfworth upon your standards and your approval and your acceptance.It is the most ruthless, cruel and brutal way I can begin to be with myself.

I’ve started to realise now, how I let people set the bar for me in the past. They probably didn’t do it intentionally. But from parents, to teachers, to men I’ve loved and women I’ve adored. They all had their own standards for things and for some reason,  I wanted to meet their approval, to be good enough for them. For so long.

Now I know. The best thing for me. Is to be good enough for me. 

That’s it. X

In my (not so humble) point of view 

Success is nothing other than.How happy you are right here.

Right now.

Zones

The magic never happens in your comfort zone.

A good place to be

Sometimes we push through envelopes of life that make us uncomfortable, that push us, challenges us and even make us feel small. But feeling small is good for us. 

It makes us question who we are. 

And if need be, reflect and refine.

Desires

At what point did my own desires have no meaning to me? To the point where I couldn’t
Be. 

Bothered.

To make them happen.

// I realised, at some point. I’d stopped going to concerts. Stopped watching movies at the cinema. Stopped having chocolate milkshakes. I stopped doing the things I loved. And in so many ways, it made life meaningless. To the point where I asked myself, 

What the fuck am I even looking forward to today?

So I guess now, I’m making my day worth waking up for.

Responsibilities 

It’s our responsibility to ask the questions.

// I always felt I didn’t need to know about the investments, about the money, about the fine lines, about my own health and more. I put this ownice on Vivek. I’m learning now. Everything to do with me and Aru, is my responsibility. And I need to know, I need to be informed. 

Alive

Kholo keeps my soul alive. 

It keeps my eyes wide. 

Seeking, searching. 

It keeps me alive. 

I cannot wait to show you. 

The silks. 

The embroidery. 

I’m so nervous to share it –

What if it gets copied in a day? 

And I’m still scrambling to make the photoshoot happen?

Each little move to expose makes me nervous. 

I’ve barely done an instagram feed because I’m like… 

What if it isn’t on point? 

I don’t think I’ve ever feared getting it wrong, the way I’m fearing it now. 

But. 

As a friend of mine said. 

Scared is a good place to be. 

So. 

I guess all that’s left. 

Is to leap.

How am I feeling? 

Like I’ve released something. 
Like I need to keep on going. 
Like I need to forgive the past. 

Accept it was a time of learning, at least it wasn’t a lifetime. 
You know not, how many times I’ve wondered. 

If other people live like this. 
With all this shit in their heads. 
Going on and on. 
Like a mouse in a loop. 

Scurrying. 

Scurrying. 

How To Doubt

When you doubt someone you love.Do the love the courtesy of clarifying the doubt. 
Go forth. 

Ask. 
Put your doubt on the table and dress your courage with love. 

Instead of fear.

How To Dream

If you are to dream, Don’t do it cautiously. 

Or hesitantly. 

Or steadily even. 
Dream irrationally. 

Ridiculously. 

Wildly. 

And with abandon. 
Because that my friend, 

Is how one ought to dream.
