I AM DRIVEN ✨
For the first two decades of my life I was completely aimless and clueless about what I wanted from life. I pointlessly drifted with the current of the society. Textbooks did not entice me. Electrical circuits terrified me. I always felt I wasn’t brainy enough to get a corporate computer job. At that point in life, I believed life was all about getting a degree, finding a simple job that paid reasonably, getting married, becoming a mother and raise kids for the rest of my life. These obviously didn’t require much goals or ambitions ✨
I did not know I could dream. So I never dreamt.
I did not know I could do what I love and hence I never figured what I might be passionate about.
I assumed I must simply accept life and the unwritten rules of the society as it is. Never did I know I had the capacity to decide how I wanted my life to be! I was unaware that I had the power to shape my life ✨
The moment the revelation ‘I can be anything I want to be, doing what I love despite being a woman, a wife, a mother, a daughter & a daughter-in-law’ dawned on me… I became a new person ✨
Finding my passion and living life on my terms has liberated me profoundly. I am not simply driven about by career in photography. LIFE drives me. LIFE excites me. I feel fully alive with meaning, purpose and passion in every aspect of my life✨
TODAY I AM DRIVEN TO BE THE BEST VERSION OF MYSELF I CAN EVER BE 💕
