My Questions –
- What is the idea behind your blog?
Komal Bhan || throughmymind, for me, is a platform to showcase my observations and put it in a better manner to help my readers. I am a strong believer of the fact that every individual has a moral responsibility towards the society and can use their skills in this direction. Since writing has always been my passion, so I thought of using it to spread awareness and help people as much as possible. Moreover, since I travel quite a lot and wanted to capture those moments for life, so throughmymind shares my travel experiences in addition to my daily experiences.
- What motivates you to write?
My dreams and my love for writing!
- What is your hobby?
Traveling – I love to travel, have quite a lot of countries in my bucket list.
Writing – I have been an avid daily writer since childhood and since throughmymind happened to me, it has become even more interesting.
- Who is the person you admire the most?
My father. I can never repay for the way he has brought me up. He is the one who keeps motivating me, the one who has always taught me to be optimistic no matter what, to have gratitude for everything that we are blessed with and be helpful to others. Although I admire a lot of people in my life, I admire my father the most for I have never heard a single negative thing from him.
- What makes you most delighted?
Planning a trip is what gives me immense happiness. And/or relaxing on my favourite couch with my favourite hot chocolate and writing my heart out.
- Do you think yourself special? If yes then why?
Yes, and I believe everyone is and should feel special because each one of us is blessed with a talent, with which we can do miracles. Just wait for the right moment to figure it out. I started writing from a very young age however unfortunately, I did not realize what it means to me. But as they say, it’s never too late. I am pretty confident of my capabilities now and have already started the run to chase my dreams.
- What are you most passionate about?
I am most passionate about living my life with positivity and happiness.
- If you are given all the necessary things to live your life then how would you spend the rest of your life?
If not required to earn for a living, I would probably think of quitting my job, will chart out the itinerary for a world trip and devote my 100% time to blogging.
- What is the most important thing to shine in life according to you?
Confidence, optimistic approach and consistency are my key words in order to shine in life.
- How to be eternally happy always?
Ideally by cutting down on expectations and having an optimistic approach always. Not 100% possible for a human though!
- What is the most special quality that you try to find in others?
Positivity and the zeal to travel. I tend to connect more with people possessing these traits.
