So what did I do differently that makes me a happier person today? I decided to eliminate negativity from my life. It is not entirely possible but its doable to an extent. I decided to dedicate time for myself and have a more systematic approach towards my work. I started with putting my phone on DND while working so that I could focus entirely on what I was doing at that moment, I decided to dedicate two hours everyday for my workout, I decided to control portions of my diet while still eating everything I want ( pizzas, beer and ice-cream included) , I decided to not involve myself in the negativity this industry sometimes brings ( fake accounts calling me names) and decided to focus on bettering myself, improving my physique, sleeping more, eating properly and improving my trade skills. That’s a long list but I make this post today because I feel I’ve been able to successfully implement all these for some months now. Which makes me realise, I’ve successfully maintained a routine which allows me to balance work and my personal life better. I still feel lazy sometimes, but I bounce back as well. And that makes me so much happier. This change allows me to focus on doing things differently. On planning concepts which I have wanted to implement, on letting my mind roam free to experiment. I feel I’ve been able to move towards conquering things that made me feel worse and I shall no longer allow to do that to myself.
If you follow me on Snapchat, you may know how I am there. You see the version of me, I wouldn’t have otherwise dared to show anyone. Because I want to promote that Self love is the best thing one can do for oneself. What you see me do on BHLM is me promoting my love for dressing up and doing makeup but doesn’t necessarily mean I ask everyone to hide behind makeup and contact lenses. Oh no! That isn’t my intention at all. What I want to promote in my platform is everything I personally love. And I think you visit this space because it is something that you love too. So we are united by a common choice. And this platform is where I share my experience with you all. For instance, one of my Snapchat friend asked me to give a review on an online website which is relatively new in India and that is what I did very recently. Her request enabled me to experiment and share the information I gathered through my experience ( on which I’ll be making a blogpost soon). Someone asked me to do a live video of my eye makeup on Instagram and I did it because it excites me! ( The same one I’m wearing here, since I shot this look after the live session) To know that I’ve been able to virtually help someone by sharing information. That is precisely why I founded BHLM. To share information on the latest collection from the stores, to review beauty products, to experiment and share the idea that some things are possible, to style items I love and give you an idea on how something could be styled if you follow me for my style, to also let you all know that I’m human, that I care, and I’m not plastic contrary to what an increase in fake accounts spamming my Instagram tells me. I acknowledge the negativity in this post because I’m well aware of it. Like everything else happening in my accounts, I read negative comments as well and I respond as politely as I can. Because that’s how I’m raised, to take full responsibility of my actions including the negativity which I may have deserved. Well I take pride in the support I’ve gained from you over the years, and I know that some of the owners of the fake accounts will read this today so know this – There is a very thin line between Love and Hate which are both extremely strong feelings. I Thank you for feeling so strongly for me. Your strong feelings motivates me to push myself further and to not disappoint everyone who has brought me to this level and together we will level up more and I will always share ideas and everything that I love and that which makes me happy through this platform I’ve created with so much passion.
