“There is always the fear of the unknown. We are all wary of taking risks lest we fail and fall down by the wayside. But a life without challenges isn’t really a life worth living.

While success is always welcome, only when you fall do you truly realize what it takes to rise and shine all the way.”

Rakesh had failed to clear a number of job interviews in succession due to one reason or another. And when he finally did, the first thing which came to his mind was his father’s words which had shaped his approach in life.

Life of an adrenalin junkie..

I recently watched the movie ‘Everest’ and first things first, I must say that it’s a visually breathtaking flick. But it got me thinking on the reasons why mountaineers do what they do.

Whether it’s the fun or the dream of conquering the impossible; the craze for living life at the edge or the fame associated with it, mountaineers have their reasons. And it’s the case with not only mountaineers but adrenalin junkies in general.

For many, this so called ‘adventurous’ life is nothing but a waste of money and public health resources. But for those who live on challenges, such experiences give meaning to their lives. It defines their personality and their day to day outlook.

What can you do for love?

Is this what love is about?

Love is an emotion which makes us do a variety of things which we may not always do. From surprising them with gifts to taking them out to an expensive restaurant; from doing things that evoke nostalgic memories of the times gone by to just giving them a call to express how much they are missed and loved, all of us do all this and more to keep our loved ones happy and smiling.

There’s so much that goes behind writing a single blog post. How many of you have ever faced a scenario wherein there were a lot many topics in your mind but you weren’t sure what to begin with? Choosing a topic and then writing a post on the same covering all the points you had in mind requires a lot of dedication and commitment.

It’s all about concentrating religiously without getting distracted by anything around be it technology, people or any mundane day-to-day tasks. For posts where we need to research online before writing, it’s upto us not to fall into the temptation of surfing online and forgetting our primary goal. Once we complete a blog post, the comments, shares and the likes we get (or don’t) motivate us to write even more.

“Did you say you want to become an artist? Are you crazy? Is it even a profession?”

Sally had come a long way from hearing such comments from her family. For her, life wasn’t just about making money in a dreary and dull job. She wanted to follow her dreams and art was her passion.

Graffiti and street art helped her express her thoughts and frustrations about daily life. The day she was invited to the famous gallery to set up her own street art exhibition was when she realized that her art had the power to make a difference.
