Why I almost stopped blogging?

by

It has been a while since I published my last post on the blog. Blogging is my passion and it is quite unlikely of me to stay away from things that I am passionate about. But sometimes life comes on the way and not in a way it was planned! I owe you an explanation for not publishing any new post for so long. I owe you an explanation for keeping you waiting and wondering if I’d ever be back. The truth is, I had almost lost my motivation to do anything productive.

I went through a very depressing and uninspiring phase of my life.

To begin with and to put it mildly, I was (and still am) stuck in a place I am not particularly fond of. Please don’t ask me the whys and hows of it because the last thing I want to do on my blog is rant! I had no  idea a place could have such an impact on a person, but apparently it does! My inspiration and motivation levels were hitting rock bottom. To top it up, Pankaj was hospitalized and remained sick for nearly a month. It was a very depressing phase of my life and I was totally drained out. I took several attempts to keep my blog alive and tried to at least keep my social media channels up to date. But I failed miserably. I just didn’t have the energy to dress up, click photographs, edit, write, post, promote and repeat the same process every 3 days. It all seemed very futile, very meaningless and not exciting at all.

I had to work really hard to kick away those depressing, demotivating and self destructive thoughts. It’s easier said than done. I don’t know if any of you can relate to my situation, and I really do not wish for anyone to go through anything even remotely similar. The fact that it doesn’t seem like a  big deal make it all the more difficult to accept and explain to others.

Anyways, my struggle wasn’t really to convince anyone but to convince myself to look at the brighter side of life and start living again. All is well that ends well, right?

What really matters to me at this point is that I regained my motivation and am back doing what I love!

I can’t thank you enough for your patience and support.

I thought of making my comeback post really colorful! We clicked these photographs during our recent trip to Delhi. Do check out my YouTube Video called Delhi Diaries to know more about our trip. We visited quite a few off-beat locations in Delhi (will talk more about them in a separate travel post) and we did this photo shoot in Lodhi Colony.

My outfit is a casual, street-style look because that has been my go-to travel style. I have always repeated my items of clothing and accessories. Now that I have started giving some serious thoughts about sustainable fashion, I have taken a more conscious decision to do so. Plus it is more fun to create fun outfit mix with a single piece and I love the creativity involved in the process. Here is another way of wearing these Denim Culottes, if you are interested in checking out. I will be talking more about my take on sustainable fashion in a separate post.
