Just believe in yourself and you will be unstoppable!
I made it till here!! 50 First Blogs 🙂 I would like to thank you all for making me write more and appreciating all my work I have done so far. While I started with my very first blog post in December 2016, I never thought of coming up with Virtual Siyahi as something of own business of providing Web Content on niche topics. I started writing because I always loved to write, I had my personal diary when I was a teen and used to write some poetry and did some scribbling regularly. I had this special connection with stationery and I could never stop buying a Notepad, Journal and colorful ink pens, I still love fountain pens which have become rare to find 🙁 and then I had to write something, and that something led me to create my own blog on WordPress one day.
Being a very sensitive and compassionate cancerian, few harsh realities of life hit me hard on my head and unless I pen it down I can not let it go. So my pen (now Laptop) became my survivor, my escape from all the issues and being a bibliophile, the more I read,the more I had this urge of writing. It is like an addiction for me but a good one I must say.
I simply turned my hobby, my special interest into my parallel career. Being a MBA,having worked for almost six years and when a critical illness hit you, which took almost a year from you to bundle up and get back to normal life , and a cute little daughter to take care of, you have only two option — to live or to leave.. I could just not leave the playground of this Life, I wanted to play more, lose more and win more. It was then I started writing and whatever I write gives me immense satisfaction of being able to add some meaning to my life. That feeling of DOING something keeps me going. People ask me about my niche area of writing and I just cannot restrict myself to one thing, I want to explore every possible topic on which I can write at least 500 words, hence I stick to an Open Diary Blog.
Few of my articles went into newspapers, I got interviewed for following my passion, I try to inspire people to follow their passion and my only condition is to believe in yourself and stop for nothing., whatever you had wished for or dream of doing someday, DO IT NOW, we have never seen tomorrow or over-morrow, we only have is NOW. Yes, I do not have thousands of followers, I don’t have a PR building me as a brand or something, I just try to reach people within my area and try to inspire them, encourage them and lift them 🙂 Life simplified. We all have many skills within us , some special interests and some creativity, we just need to identify them and follow them in order to have that feeling of accomplishment.
I would like to end it with a very famous quote by Swami Vivekananda –Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success. I truly believe in it.
