This Month’s GlossyPolish Writer of the month is Setu Shreya handing the baton to her – Setu Speaks! 😉
First of all, a big THANKYOU to each and everyone who helped me to be the “Writer of the Month”. Well, it’s huge and really feels great.
I have always been this “girl-next-door” type of girl and when I was asked to write a complete write-up about myself, I was like “Who is going to read that? “. I mean I am not a celebrity or a screwed politician or a reason behind demonetization. I even don’t have anything to do with Brexit and Trump being the president of America. I do not watch Games of Thrones. Wait, you have already started disliking me. Haven’t you ? I don’t tweet. I don’t ask my questions on Quora. I don’t have 50k followers on insta. And wait, I am not even an entrepreneur. Why the hell would you read about me ?
But as I guess you still are, it has encouraged me to think that do I really need to have all this to get people read about me ? Probably, NO.
I am a girl who is quite happy with her life, not satisfied. I have completed my schooling and graduation and like a mainstream grad, I too have that “Oh-So-Ready-For-MBA” attitude. And to add on all these a bit, I write.
I write what I feel and I want to make people feel what I write. I am not dying to get published, but I am dying to be heard, to be read. I don’t want people to appreciate or flatter me, I want them to remember my work the next time they hear my name. I don’t want to be a Great author; I just want to be a writer, a storyteller, an orator. I want to make my move and I really want to make it count.
Life has been great for me till now. I had been in an ICU, underwent operations, broke my jaw but I am very thankful to God because I am still very much alive and self-sufficient to fight for myself. Everybody has some problems. Be it mental, physical or both. We forget that there are people with more grave issues and in a worse situation than we are. Still, they are fighting because complaining hardly helps. There are like 300 days when we are all high, healthy and happening and 65 days when we aren’t. But the best part is, we always remember those 65days in 300 days but nor for once do we remind ourselves of even one day out of those 300 days, when we are in our 65days. Interesting J
Positivity, Belief and a group of wonderful souls around me have kept me going. For me, everything has a pattern. We enjoy the ‘good phase’ only when we know how it feels like to be in a ‘bad phase’. There is no “GOOD” without “BAD”.
I have a Blog which runs by the name ‘Some unposted letters’. I started it out of my love for writing. I had never written about myself on that blog until 4th Dec, It was the result day of CAT2016. And after rigorous labor, positivity and confidence, I landed “NOWHERE”. Instead of “ why me” “ aisa kyu hua “ , I reminded myself of those 300 days when life had been unconditionally grateful to me and I wrote about it. That post of mine fetched me around 3k views, thank you messages from total strangers and, if that is what my failure story is capable of, I wonder what ‘I’ am capable of.
To all those who are reading this, believe me when I say, “ It is never too late”. Start with what you have and where you are. Don’t try to be different, just try to be a HUMAN. They are really getting endangered. Have an aim you could protect, live and fight for. Who knows, we might be reading about you next 😉
Everybody has a story. Make sure you are the HERO of yours.
LEARN, LAUGH AND LIVE because that is for what, LIFE is.
Thank you for letting your eyes read this.
God Bless You All.
PS: GlossyPolish, thank you for this privilege.
