For most part of my adult life, I remember being horrified by this one question, Whats your goal/ dream/ passion?” Horrified because I felt I was not normal not to have one solid goal to chase, a goal to motivate myself to wake up every morning.
What was wrong with me!?
Truth is that I had too many things I was passionate about. But nothing that I could die for. Nothing that I could say out loud without fear or embarrassment.
If a career counselor gave me a sheet with a list to tick or cross off, I know what I could quickly cross off.
I am not into fashion. I have never used a blow dryer my entire life and I can go without shaving my legs or tweezing my eyebrows for a month. I am not into finance or accounts or science or insurance. I am definitely not into coding or anything technical.
This was easy. Now for the my-biggest-pain-in-the-a** list.
I like creating things – cards, wall arts, DIYs.
I have made pretty good videos for my friends and family for their birthdays/ anniversaries.
I cook meals with a lot of love, and it somehow turns out well most times. People often tell me I should consider starting some small business.
I love writing, which is obvious because I am here.
I love an Indian illustrator Alicia Souza so much that her name was the first one to pop in my head when my journal asked me a question, “who is your role model?”. I would love love to do what she does.
I thought I was into photography when I found myself enjoying clicking good candid shots in functions. My brother hence gifted me a Canon Rebel for my wedding. 2 years have passed and I am yet to learn what the manual mode does.
I love singing. Always have. If I knew how to play the guitar or any other instrument, I would be having my own Youtube channel now.
I never really learnt Photoshop even though I was good at photo edits;
I think I liked teaching or training
I enjoyed learning sign language
I felt at a point that I can even be a good counselor!
And I’m not even sure the list is over yet. (I hope it is)
If you see how I have started my blog, you will find that I don’t have a theme or a specific category. (to call it a food blog or a fashion blog for example)
