Heart Over Mind. Always!

For the past few months I’ve been processing so much information, so much grief, so much uncertainty that coming on here to share my thoughts felt pointless ...  like another string of sentences thrown in the ocean of opinions. And honestly, I thought the world could do with one less opinion —Mine. 

For the longest time though, it didn’t even occur to me that I had an unattended blog. Then slowly I started receiving emails, messages asking me how I was or to let me know that they missed me. Even my parents started wondering why there weren’t any new blogposts. I was under the impression that the internet-world which moves to the next-best-thing at a lightning speed, wouldn’t even notice that I had not been around. Consider me pleasantly surprised. And touched. Being missed and cared for by readers, is a feeling I didn’t know would feel so special. So thank you for thinking of me and giving me this warmth, especially in these times. 

Now if you are wondering, “That’s all well and good Tanvi, but what are your plans for your blog?” let me just say that I am someone who has always followed her heart (heart > mind). I do whatever feels right to me in the moment. And right now blogging doesn’t seem to be my primary creative outlet. I am enjoying my time away from screens and technology and that is bringing me more joy and satisfaction. BUT I am not yet ready to abandon this space completely either. Neither am I willing to be on the internet any longer than absolutely necessary. 

My plan is to be a sporadic blogger for the time being. Go back to the basics. Right where I had started. Use words to express instead of pictures. Shares what I am thinking rather than what I am wearing. There might not be any Instagram posts for a while, or frequent tweets but I will be stopping by here to share whatever I am pondering over or is going on in my head … whenever I am able to express it.

Hope everyone is doing well. Staying healthy. Living life. And not taking themselves too seriously. Let me leave you with a quote I recently read and related to: 

The best moments in reading are when you come across something – a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things – which you had thought special and particular to you. Now here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out and taken yours. —Alan Bennett
