I found myself smiling when I saw the prompt. Goal eh?. It seemed more like a joke. I didn’t even know I could write so well. Of course my English was impeccable but the writer in me went into hibernation right after high school. I started my journey like an aimless wanderer.  No aim or direction.  It was more of a random start to find solace.  Little did I know that blogging would pave the way to explore my real self,  What followed was three years of pure awesomeness.

What a metamorphosis it has been – The caterpillar transforms itself into a butterfly.  I have an audience – people who have accepted me for what I am. People who have managed to single out my voice despite the huge crowd. The stage has been set for what is to come. It’s time to re-invent myself. It’s time to have a GOAL.

I bare myself for everyone to see with just one objective in mind – To touch lives and be the voice of the specially privileged and the loved ones surrounding their lives. I am a survivor and my voice speaks for them. The journey ahead is long and tough but I know where my destination lies.

  1. Love the fact that you consider yourself a caterpillar who has transformed into a butterfly. If only all of us learnt to love ourselves and accept the fact that we are all beautiful inside, the world would be a happier place, wouldn’t it ?

  2. Powerful and empoering!

  3. Your goal is touching. For me, you have scored already! Wishing you lots of success in your writing.

    • You think so Sakshi.. I consider myself a novice.. There’s still a long way to go.. Boundaries to break.. Awards to win.. As I always say there are miles to go before I sleep

  4. Your metamorphosis is complete as far as I’m concerned. You have truly arrived and have been grabbing attention. Might I add, well-deserved attention. Stay strong and go far 🙂

  5. Three years? You’ve indeed come a lomg way. And yes, it’s time to set some goals. May you achieve all your goals and be successful and an inspiration to many others.

    • Might I add I spent two out of those three years yearning for an audience. But I still kept writing like an addict. There’s still a long way to go

  6. A lovely post this. I haven’t frequented your site as much as I would have liked to.. but from now on I plan to do it more.. cos like the rest have said above….very few people realize the beauty and talent that resides inside them… I am glad you have.. hope to hop over again to experience that talent 🙂

  7. Wonderful post . May you fulfill all ur goals. Enjoyed reading it 🙂

  8. Salesh, as always, I wish you all the best and strength to reach higher and higher & motivation get better and better.
