Life is a constant struggle, no matter which part of the world we reside in, and if we can learn to struggle, we can learn to live!
Through all these years, learning, struggling and reinventing myself as I gained experience of this place called “world”… I think I’ve lost myself somewhere…
I have been busy doing everything that women are expected to do, but somehow these routine chores don’t feel worth my while. Tedious routines throw people into a dungeon from where they may find it very hard to redeem themselves. I realized I must get out of this rut and hence restarted writing along with teaching. My children were well out of their babyhood, so I had time to pursue some hobbies and interests. I tell you, women who work, raise children and run homes — aren’t less than superhumans!
Anyways, when I stepped out of my dungeon I saw that I was surrounded by the chaos of an era which was technology-driven to quite an extent. I really needed a creative pursuit to help keep my sanity because I had sacrificed almost everything to build a family and home after my marriage. So, I thought of creating a WordPress site for maintaining a blog, just like some people keep diaries, where I could scrawl about life, literature and all that fascinates me.
As the world started to shut down in March 2020 in fear of a virus spread, cyberspace seemed to emerge as a portal for people to experience social contact. More and more people gravitated towards blogging in search of finding company, hope and courage. And this is how I ended up starting a blog, and nothing has made me happier during these times.
The beauty of blogging is that it has helped me connect with fellow humans through shared experiences, it has promoted growth and creativity. I’ve found great writers here and every blog feels like a person talking to me. I appreciate how people communicate using words, and it’s a pleasure to read about everyone’s individual experience.
I’ve always been fond of writing and reading. This is what also made me a freelance writer. I’ve worked as a proofreader, writer and editor with various publishing companies. My writing interests include books, literature and health & wellness.
I believe WORDS hold an immense power if used carefully with a purpose. I love how words are put together to voice thoughts, seize memories and tell tales. In my attempt to make sense of life in this world, I’ve also done some “putting together of words” on my blog. I hope you take along something positive from here and find something that stays with you for a long time.
Happy reading. I’d love to receive feedback and comments.
