In the year 2014 out of sheer boredom and lack of interest in living an assertive life, a friend of mine suggested me to create a blog. She recognised the talent & sport in me while I was shy & least confident to admit what I was capable of. I have been unsure of my gift into writing. One day I wrote a piece of article which I was too shy to post for the fear of being judged & ridiculed by the “social media giants” (If you know what i mean)
However on reluctance, I went ahead and published my first post on Facebook and metaphorically speaking, I waited for the walls to fall on my head while I hid under the blanket.
Now literally speaking, I was super nervous to open my Facebook to check the reactions I received on the content I wrote. To my disbelief, I have received most positive responses. It took a whole lot while for me to understand what happened on that particular day.
Based on those positive responses, I was intrigued to write another post and this time I did not hesitate to post and then came on the third, fourth post & so on..
As my confidence in writing grew, I went ahead to try another challenge – Photography. To begin with, I used Micromax canvas A110 to capture random photos and kept those photos saved in the device and never published them for the fear of being judged if I made my interest in photography public. (Now using Moto G3)
A friend again had to influence me to go online with my photos. Only this time I thought why not and Instagrammed my first photo. Well, it was a slow start to begin with but overtime my Instagram gained followers and my photos increases in number everyday.
My blog, which you’re reading is now a writer’s corner & a photoblog. These days you will find more of the photos flooding the page than the writing. I’m getting back on track to connect with the writing.
I’m Natasha & this is my friendly blog since 2014
Take care; be gentle with self.
You are only a human prone to make mistakes.
Be kind to self.
Learn – move on – repeat; for this alone is constant.
Be still, listen to the voice of your heart. What does it say?!
A second chance is all you need. Third, fourth if required …
Why be limited with less chances when you have many to live by …
The shy, the reserved & the least expected ones will someday come to the light. Comfort zone you say; how long I ask. What if some day you wake up, the zone you protected is lost? What if someday you wake up & find the walls you built is broken unbeknownst to you? How long will you hold onto something which is just your imagination? How about stepping one foot at the time? How about a hello to the world? Who knows, you could be a surprise to self if only you give a chance & believe in opportunities.
So what if you failed?! Who never did?! – Ever heard failure being stepping stones to success? Do you think or believe that’s a mere fantasy & fiction? – Good if you did believe that way because when you are conditioned to believe so, I’m sure you will believe in chances & opportunities as well. It’s all in the mind I keep telling you & yet again I will remind you of such.
Be mindful of this cherie – It is that one step at a time, always!
I’ve known none much of your music but yes, one thing I could always associate you with is your throat tearing vocal to the highest of the highest and to infinity and beyond.
I remember the days I made fun of your high screeching vocal ability because that is the only cue for me to recognize “Ah, that screeching singer guy has come finally” and I ignore but I ended up watching your entire music video.
I have few songs of yours in my playlist. I have been playing those on loop for no reason for long as I remember. Which means I have to admit I grew listening to LP though I did not realize that till now.
Never thought the day would come I would say this but yes, Linkin Park will never be the same without your screaming, screeching high pitched voice.
So, my dear Chester Bennington,
To me you will always be remembered as the guy with that high screech voice who was the catalyst for the band. Yes, I will miss your voice for sure.
