Thank you Vidhi for such probing questions. Thank goodness, Chiradeep told me that I have the option to skip 3 questions maximum. 🙂
Let me answer then right away…
1) What makes you truly happy?
2) What is that one thing you’ll do anything to achieve it?
Ans: Well, I’m going to combine these two questions and try to answer them.
It’s very difficult to find even a ray of happiness amidst chaos. And finding something that makes me happy is next to impossible.
But speaking of what makes my soul ‘truly happy’ then I would say my kids, my 2 beautiful boys. No matter where they are or what all they do to torture me (they are literally brats) or how much they adore me, they are the best things in my life. Seeing them giggle or laugh out loud or are insanely happy about the smallest things, makes me truly happy. I consider myself to be responsible for their lives and they, thus are responsible for my happiness. And for that, I would literally flip the world upside down.
3) Do you run away from situations or fight with it out?
It depends on the situation.
Mostly I fight with it, for it. I’m not the backing out kinda person. If I know I’m right, I stay put and fight with everything I’ve got. I hate to be held accountable for the wrongs which aren’t my fault. So I stand tall and face it with all my will. But…
Sometimes, such situations arise which are better left the way they are and just run as far away as possible from them because they will leave your soul marred for the rest of your life.
4) When you are sad, do you feel comfortable sharing things or do you keep everything to yourself?
Everyone in this world has their own set of problems. Some share and feel better.
I, for one, am the quiet type. I don’t like to share. I shut myself from the world and hide in my shell, like a tortoise. It’s difficult for the other person to understand what I am going through, and I don’t expect it either. So I prefer to keep mum.
5) Do you believe in the concept of self-love or self-sacrifice?
Ans: Silence is Golden… :p
6) When was the last time you did something out of your comfort zone?
Ans: I actually haven’t discovered my comfort zone yet. I surprise myself when I do something new. But haven’t really known the boundary of this.
7) What’s that one thing you would do if nobody is judging you?
Ans: Hahaha… that’s really interesting.
You do know that no matter what you do, people judge.
Anyway, if nobody is judging me, then I would be the real me – Bold, beautiful and audaciously insane.
8) Would you rather roam around clicking pictures or run around with a journal and a pen?
Ans: Ah! A tricky one!! I would say… I would click the picture that would inspire me to pen down the beauty of it.
9) Are you using your time efficiently?
Ans: I think, the responsibilities I have to carry out every day, I carry them out efficiently. Does that mean I use my time efficiently? 😉
10) What according to you is the purpose of your life?
Ans: To answer this… I’ll be taking the reference of questions 1 & 2…
I brought two beautiful souls into this world. Taking care of them in every possible way there is and making them feel proud to have a mother like me, is the sole purpose of my life. So right now, the purpose of my life is to be a good mother.
In the end, I just want to mention one poem to encourage my readers along with my own self:
Don’t be like the mighty elephant
tied with a meek string.
Know your own strength and
all the wondrous marvels it can bring.
