so many thoughts…
A few weeks back, I shared a very passive aggressive caption on one of my Instagrams. I was a bit peeved, but was mostly exhausted. It seems like everything has been moving so quickly. The temperature, air, light—It’s like London forgot to properly transition and we’re into what feels and looks like winter. I was just not ready to say goodbye to summer, the season where minutes seems to slow down and seconds seem a lot longer.
I had all these ambitious goals set the beginning of summer, through the summer I was trudging along and setting the path to meet those goals and just like that, a snap, autumn was here. So the last few weeks, you may have witnessed, has been a bit quiet on the social scene on my end. I executed all the plans I devised a few months ago, and through that process I experienced so much angst and came across challenges that were partially unnecessary and mostly overwhelming.
Through the times where you’re moving forward, people tend to fall behind and you lose sight of them. The worst is when they’re not willing to catch up with you, let alone try and in return are extra weight. It’s heartbreaking, but I’ve learnt to drop such people and continue to do what I’m doing. What feels like a life that is sporadic, too adventurous, lacking routine—is actually a quality of life that very few are able to experience and what most are seeking. From one restless person to another… eventually, everything connects.
what I wore
I’ve also been alluding to “big projects” quite a bit on the social channels for quite a while now. And now to be completely open with you, I’m excited to tell you that we start these projects tomorrow! Tomorrow I’m on a flight to the Middle East then India to capture a series of video and photo editorials to perfectly capture moments, history and the beauty that is my heritage and culture.
Since moving to London, to get back to everything working out, I felt so distant from my heritage. Being an expat that identifies first as an American, I found it difficult to connect with the people of the same heritage as me. And with a strong cultural upbringing, I questioned my identity. So the next few weeks will be dedicated to bringing you the most colorful, authentic and raw material from the depths of where my ancestors come from. I will be updating the blog and social media from India, sharing all content in real time, so you won’t have to wait any longer.
With that said, time to finish packing and get all the details sorted. Thank you, from the very bottom of my heart, for being patient and supporting this space. xo
