I am so fond of various art forms! I simply adore the way the art brings beautiful & unexplored facets on the life platter! Every art gives a different definition, style and skill to its own distinctive system unfolding diverse layers of creativity and vision. It purely allows the artist to pour his thoughts, fancies and fantasies to shape his inspirations. Be it any form – painting, singing, dancing, drawing, and writing or just anything, art is the only channel which gives ultimate freedom to gouge out your theories, dreams and impulses at the same time. It gives immense opportunities to travel and touch your reveries, providing several expressions about what you think, feel and believe.
Oh! It’s such a pleasure! Such an amazing experience to get indulged in it; Practising any art is a great brain exercise in itself. It allows you to soak completely in its true nature and pushes to understand its true intensity of it! And being an ardent fan of so many art forms, I feel so fortunate to especially find myself infused in writing. I really enjoy the practice of propelling my thoughts into a piece of paper and enjoy the language of expression through words. It’s not only a hobby or passion but simply the way of life. A sparkling way to communicate my beliefs and views, a restrained route to enjoy the journey, an open window to channel my thoughts!
But many times when I try to start to pen an article; I just get stuck right in the beginning and I am unable to pave my outlooks and observations. Suddenly, a dense fog of muddles appears in front of me; just can’t figure what to write, which flow to consider, how to approach the topic? I get entangled in my thought process and consequently reverse myself to square one! Though I enjoy the writing process to its truest sense, I still get jammed in the course of action! Why? What for? How?
But then after a while, I started analysing ‘Whys’ ‘Hows’ and ‘Whichs’ and questioned the entire purpose and its meaning. Subsequently, I happened to comprehend a bigger picture, a better meaning to the process, a finer reason behind my ambiguities! And then I here I am…
What is the definitive perseverance to start / focus / continue a desired task? What do we actually want from the activity? What do we really wish? Oh, wish? Why do we so?
Simple! To get better things; to surpass what we already have and attain higher possessions! To write a better story of our life and to share a part of your soul to the world. We are always in a quest to desire several things in life – dream job, a cosy home, that perfect figure, a cute dress or just a fun filled relaxing vacation…the list is enormous and endless. And still, it is usually not enough for us! We always like to update our wish lists with new desires. We desire so many things, on several levels – emotionally, mentally, materialistically, financially, spiritually, and physically! Oh My Lord! So many!
And usually while we strive hard in the process, we miss to have a clear vision of how to achieve it, we somehow tend to lose that drive to get the thing done. We are ambiguous about playing that new role or travel an unexplored path, or just worry about the where-about. Instead of doing it right, we rather get tensed about the prospective outcome and are sceptical to face it.
Yes, thinking about the result! We start questioning ourselves and analyse all the ‘ifs and butts’ leading us to slowly slack our vision. Why do we do so? It is mainly because of that thirst of succeeding in every job, every activity, and every piece. Why do we thrust to be on the top and stay there forever? Or may be just the fear of falling down? Not that we stop working hard or we keep our foot down, but why don’t we enjoy life in little moments and make peace with our expedition?
Instead why don’t we focus on overcoming our fears and moving forward towards our goals without worrying about the consequences? Why don’t we try to put the outcome in the back burner, and let our efforts take care? Well! If we deeply contemplate about it, the fact is it ALL depends on us. It’s purely on how we want our lives to shape. We should understand and believe that we are the painter of our lives, choreographers of our expeditions and writers of our destiny. No one will live our lives for us. Only we can carve our living and make efforts worthwhile. And that’s what I learn from writing. That pleasure to enjoy the experience; enjoy the journey which allows you to discover new meanings, new densities, new pathways…
Let our inhibitions be out of our way and appreciate the odyssey of our experiences. Whether it’s a simple thing like trying a new recipe, changing work patterns, starting a new hobby or just starting a new blog like me! Nothing should ever stop us! Trial and error is an important part of the process. So bring it on! Bring what you want to the platter! A different taste, a different spice and a little drama!
Relish and enjoy the experience!
