The true meaning of Love

Hello there all you gorgeous people! This post is absolutely random because I didn’t plan on writing anything, and by anything I mean not even an alphabet on this topic, in spite of all the requests I got after posting the previous articles under the blossoming mind. But something just made me do it today. Keep reading to find out what really inspired me to share my views on what being in love truly signifies.

Sitting all by myself I finally realized what love means. All these years ‘love’ is what I yearned for. I’m sure most of you are in the same place as I was until this moment. I came across so many definitions for what love actually means, whether it was on Google or every time I asked someone. But everything that people said to me about what love means to them, never made any sense.

But tonight, it just randomly struck me. Funny story! I was trying to relax because I’ve had a few things on my mind lately that have kind of been bothering me. I was watching an episode of ‘How I met your mother’. What’s strange is that I have watched the entire series a lot of times in the past few months and I actually remembered every detail of every episode I watched, until now. I noticed something that I never did before. I learnt what love actually is and how it feels.

I really don’t want to make this article too long because to be honest I just want this to sink in but at the same time, I couldn’t resist telling you all about my experience tonight. So, are you guys ready to finally hear the true meaning of love that we all have been searching for, for quite some time?

Get ready because I am about to spill some beans.

 

“Love isn’t something that develops over time.

It’s something that happens instantaneously.

It’s like the water gushing onto the shore.

Filling you and emptying you at the same time.

You feel it throughout your body,

In your hands, your skin, your stomach, your heart.”

 

Have any of you ever felt this way about someone? If your answer is, ‘I think so’. Then maybe you should read this very carefully. Because if you have to think about it; you haven’t really felt it. The reason I am so excited right now is because I have been searching for this for years now and I finally found out all about it. I realised that in life we repeat one episode quite a few times, we make the same mistake twice, but even then in times of repitition we tend to see something different always.

Anyway, I hope you guys are as excited about it as me. This one episode actually opened my eyes and I really hope that what I have shared with each one of you today helps you to do the same. There is lots of love coming your way. Stay happy you guys!

My journey so far

Hello there all you beautiful souls! I received quite a few requests from you all asking me all about how I got where I am today and how my journey so far has been. So, this article is for all of you who wish to know all about my life so far. Since this article is meant for the blog, I’m going to have to strike out a few details, but you are more than welcome to drop me an email asking me any further questions you might have.

Alright! So let’s get going. As you all must’ve read in my bio, I come from a small town. I did my schooling there till grade 6th and then went to a boarding school which is about 2.5 hours drive from my hometown. Graduated from there and went to IHM Aurangabad to pursue Hotel Management. I always wanted to open up my own hotel brand but unfortunately things took a different turn for me. I didn’t really like it there which made me very homesick, which is kind of strange given the fact that I am used to staying away from family. So, with not much cooperation from my parents, I decided to leave after 6 months of being there. I ended up taking a drop year and then joined Amity University for journalism and mass communication which is in Delhi.

I was always the one person in my family to have everything perfectly planned out. But even after enrolling in a bachelors course for journalism and mass communication, I realised this isn’t what I want to do professionally. So, after a lot of brainstorming, I decided to go ahead and fulfil every dream I have ever had, not caring about what people would think of me for being so fickle minded. I discovered my passion for makeup about 2 years ago and knew at that very moment that this is where I belong. So, I went into it professionally and to be honest I love my job. I love blogging, experimenting with makeup and travelling. It’s just a perfect combination to earn your bucks but still enjoy life.

But with being a makeup artist I don’t get to travel because I’m trying to work alongside university. So, I thought the only way I could get to fulfil my dream to travel would be by joining the airlines as cabin crew. Now, the plan is to work with the airlines for about 2-3 years once I’m through with college and then my only focus will be on building Foxy Allure as a brand.

Let’s discuss my relationships so far. Well, to be honest, my love life has been quite a roller coaster ride. But hey! That’s the fun part of life right? At this point in life, I feel like my main focus is my career and I personally feel a relationship will just mess it all up for me. So, no guys! I’m not dating anybody and I don’t plan on doing so till I know which part of the world I would be settled in maybe a year from now.

A few of you asked me for my advice on how you could be sure of your career choice. Well, now that you know how fickle minded I have been as far as my career is concerned, all that I can suggest is that you should do what you want to do, do whatever makes you happy and just go on and fulfil your dreams. By the end of it, it’s your life and unfortunately it’s the only shot that you’ve got at building it up. So, my advice would be, don’t let anyone bind you or make you do something you won’t be happy doing.

I hope I have answered all your questions but feel free to drop me an email in case you feel like there’s more you would want to know about me. Thanks a lot for believing in me and loving my work. It’s always a pleasure writing pieces that people really want to read. Have a fabulous week!!

Life Unfolded

As I sit in my room on a gloomy Sunday evening, enjoying the serene beauty of the hills and sipping hot coffee, I ponder upon a few things related to life and its purpose.

Life has its own way of making things happen and I’m pretty sure most of you know that by now. But for the rest of you who feel like ‘life has no purpose for us’ and all of that, well….I really hope this article is helpful because all I’m going to do is just pen my thoughts down; through all the stuff I have experienced in my life, so far.

There will be times when you feel like life is total bulls**t because nothing will be turning out how you imagined it to. I’ve felt like that way for a long, long time too. But here’s what I realized. It’s not life that tends to disappoint us. In fact, it’s we ourselves who do that. We expect things out of each and every aspect of our life. And that’s simply wrong. Reason being, we tend to imagine the perfect situations and when nothing turns out the way we imagined, well its needless to say- disappointments and only disappointments all the way.

Our lives are planned out for us. They always were. And I’m not saying that because I’m a spiritual person, I’m an atheist for all of you who didn’t know. But I truly feel like our lives are planned out. Our destiny though? Not so much. The strength in us can help change our destiny. Nothing in life can be perfect. You cannot have the perfect job, the perfect family, the perfect boyfriend, the perfect husband, the perfect relationship, the perfect friendship, the perfect anything. Life will be so much more peaceful and stress-free once you remove the term ‘perfect’ from your dictionary. On the other hand, focus on the ‘right’ things. The right job, the right relationship, the right guy, and the list is never-ending.

We all just have one life to live, so why not make the most of it? Why not be spontaneous and have fun? Why think and ruin our peace of mind? I have always been the kind of person who would over-think, analyze every detail of my life, and that did no good for me. It ruined my peace of mind, my happiness. I wasn’t happy with anything no matter how much I tried, I wasn’t fun. I was just depressed, distant from everything and everyone. But now that I have realized how badly that brought me down I decided to make a few changes for my own betterment. And the changes that I made were to just relax, have fun, to not think, to not have expectations from anything or anyone at all. And believe it or not, I’m a much happier soul now than I was before I made these changes.

Let’s shift onto the purpose of this one life that we have. For many of us, life’s purpose would be fame, success, etc. But that cannot keep you happy and at peace all your life. On the other hand, what actually would keep you happy and peaceful for the rest of your life is being a good human being. Forgive and forget, be nice to people no matter how they treat you but at the same time remember that there is something known as self respect. Don’t lose yourself along the way and even if you do, be strong enough to get back on your feet. Don’t compete with people in terms of what they own and how successful they are. This is your life to shape and henceforth, live. Not theirs.

People will come and go. They will hurt you but won’t be there to pick the pieces up. But it’s not their life. It’s yours. You need to be strong enough to pick yourself up no matter what. Time heals but at the same time it gives you strength. Strength to be your own master, strength to change your destiny, strength to make fruitful decisions in life. Don’t do the things you don’t like or are not passionate about. Do what makes you happy. Learn to stand up for yourself. I know all this is easier said than done. But it’s not like it’s impossible to achieve all these things. You just need to be strong and patient.

Relationships come and go, and so does love. Don’t depend on it to make life decisions. Be independent. Anger isn’t the solution to your every problem. Been there, done that. But believe me, now that I’m not that person I was before, life has a whole new meaning for me. I should wrap this up now but after I put across one more point. Don’t listen to people. Don’t give them the decision-making power. People love talking and gossiping but come on! Why should that bother you? They will be judgmental but hey! They haven’t been through any of those things that you have. And even if they have been through those things, the level of intensity would be different. Live in the moment instead of planning everything out.

“You’ve only got one life. Make the most of it.”

I really hope this article is of great help to all of you reading it. I would love to talk with you over emails if there’s ever a time when you feel like you need someone to just vent out your feelings to without being judged for the decisions you’ve made.
