Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.
-Anthony J. D’Angelo
Every season has its own beauty. Every season brings a change of winds and change of atmosphere, be it Bombay’s monsoon or be it Toronto’s freezing snow. I believe life to be a change of seasons. Every event is like a wind that steers your sail in a new direction. Sometimes the journey gets harsh and there may be a turbulence making you come to a halt but, what does not change in the entire process is your persistence on a decision you make. Along the way, I’ve learnt that there may come rain, there may come shine, but it is your sail that shall always remain the same.
There are many other things I am persistent and passionate about, like my rida, my need to express an opinion on anything that catches my interest and my obsessive need to write and paint. And I believe everyone has that one or a particular set of special things that never change, come rain or come shine. It could be as simple as a particular talent you have or an interest you have acquired over the years. This one simple thing remains with you in every part of your life and it adds to your personality making you unique.
The significant part is that once you realise what it is, don’t let it go; no matter what the weather, bring your sunshine wherever you go. Because that is what will make your experiences yours. And your own sunshine is what will nurture you into being an empowered individual.
