I am an 18-year-old girl, who likes to speak.
This is my life, my thoughts, my story, unrestricted, uncensored, uninhibited; usually thought of while I enjoy my early morning cup of hot, hot, bittersweet coffee.
I am from Mumbai, India.
I am independent and headstrong. I am a leader by nature. I care a lot for all those around me. I love to support, encourage and share. I may not look conventionally pretty, but I believe I am beautiful. Sometimes I get hurt, yes. I may feel cheated, yes. But I still stand strong. I believe in myself.
I believe what goes around, comes around. And I most definitely believe in the power and magic of love.
I consider myself both blessed and fortunate to have loving and understanding parents who support me and what I do. The only way I stay sane in this mad, mad world is by satisfying my daily quota of four hugs a day from my mom.
I love to smile. It spreads goodwill and cheer.
The most genuine of smiles is the one from the heart that is seen in one’s eyes.
As my crazy friends will vouch for, I’m crazier than them, more often melodramatic than not; I crack jokes that crack ’em up, and we are glorious partners in crime. They are my support system, my pillars of strength and they will not hesitate before smacking me for something stupid I do and then laughing themselves silly over it. I love them and they are my life.
Music is also my life. I connect most deeply with those that share the same passion for music and singing as I do. Music is the language of the universe. There is music everywhere and in everything.
My life revolves around my family, my friends, my community and the eternal conflict between my mind and my heart. It is this battle that often spurs me on to write.
I want to make a difference. I want to give back to society what I have received. Recently, my friends and I have started an NGO of our own, and we are dedicated to community service.
On the title of my blog –
I believe that speaking to oneself is most vital and crucial in today’s world. It is so easy to get influenced or misguided about various things. I have seen people lose connect with themselves and turn into something they are most certainly not. It’s shocking, most people know so much about others than they do about themselves! Speaking to oneself helps you stay in touch with your mind and your soul. It is healthy and positive. It keeps you original, and unique, and amazing in your own way. It maintains your individuality. It dares you to be different. It helps you understand who you truly are.
Dear Reader, speak to yourself today. You will be amazed and surprised.
Thank you for stopping by.
