The other day I was browsing through my personal diary and I bumped into one of the pages I had written this year in early June, when I had just left my job. One of the lines in that entry struck a chord with me. I had written ‘It would be the best birthday gift, if I could have my first order till November 3 (my birthday)’.
It’s been so much more. Since June, I have launched my brand, have had a fair share of orders, been part of a bake sale cum competition where I’ve won the first prize and made an amazing set of friends with whom I share the same passion.
Oh yes, it’s been a phenomenal year. So I leave you with a poem I have written almost after three years...
When little hearts dream big
Here I am at a path unknown
Just because my heart wanted more
The match has been lit, the candle glows
As into words the embers pour.
But now wanting more means being more
As emotions run past the chatters of the mind
The feelings finally heave a sigh,
As the myriad thoughts are left long behind.
A simple dream it may not be
But more a paradigm shift it really is.
The courage to be true and free,
To let not politics bribe me.
To have faith in myself, in tomorrow
That I will land on my feet, with this leap
I may stumble, I may fall
But I shall surpass the heap.
Where this journey reaches, who knows?
But I have found my peace.
Because a little heart can see big dreams,
And basks in the journey while it is.
So what is your dream? If you could have it, with no questions asked, what would it be?
