Well, a lot of you wanted to know what lead to the birth of ‘The Bold Vibe’ by ‘The Bold Girl💋‘
So today, I’ll share with y’all how I started my Blogging journey or rather why I started it.
Most of you who know a bit about me know that I do have a hard-time being active on the platform. Reason – My working schedule and some others reasons which aren’t disclosed yet.
I always wanted to have a Blog of my own but, never really knew if I would be able to write so much or give enough time for it. And so, I never really tried it. I don’t know about y’all but, I always wanted to do a lot of stuffs but, never really got the time and when I got, I kept it for tomorrow.
And guess whattttt…..
Tomorrow Never Comes!
It was May of 2019, when I suffered a severe backache and was on bed rest. It was so bad, I thought, I would never be able to stand on my feet ever again. I was completely lost. Couldn’t believe that at such a young age, these things had gripped me.
Consulted many Doctors, Physiotherapists but, nothing really worked. I was at my lowest. I wasn’t sure if my Employer would retain this employee or sack me (though the cause for my terrible health was their horrible chairs and my over stressful working environment). A lot of things ran into my head all at once.
I did my MRI thrice. Yes, thrice. The doctors were just experimenting. All of them gave different reasons, adding more trauma to my already stressed soul.
Questioned, “Why me?”
But life doesn’t give you the answers, right?
While I was on unpaid leave, resting at home, one of my friend rang me up. She asked if I can join her to watch a movie. I told her that I can’t coz I knew, I won’t be able to sit for long.
After a while, I just shared this with my Mom. She advised me to go since, I needed a breather and asked to give it a try. I called her up and told her that I will join her.
I’d bought a new dress and I decided to wear it that day and a lot of things followed when I stepped out of the house. What those things were, you’ll get to know soon…
While my health condition was bothering me, something else also managed to eat my brain, that was “When will I live for myself? What about my dreams, my aspirations etc. etc.”
This feeling was more intense after I reached home that day. I wanted to speak it out. While the negativity and the “Will try it later” attitude was still trying to distract me, I decided not fall for it this time.
I knew, if I make a Blog, I will write. But making a Blog is all that I need to put my efforts in. Now, you’d think, it doesn’t need much effort, right? For me, it was, due to my preconceived notions and my overall condition. And trust me, I did not even know how does one create a Blog coz I never tried finding it out.
Though the pain was still a matter of concern and I knew that I can’t sit for long, I decided to sit and create it. It was 12:37 in the afternoon when I got the 1st email confirming my account creation.❤️ Then, I created every bit – all the pages, the design, images on the same day. (Some pages are now scrapped since I redesigned the website.)
My first blog – ‘Short Dress‘ was up on 27th June 2019 at 10:22 in the night.
I know it very well, if I wouldn’t have reached that stage, I would’ve never dared to start a blog.
Sometimes, life teaches you somethings out of the blue. If I wouldn’t have been there then, I won’t have been here either.
This was my blessing in disguise!
My health condition lead me here.
That was my calling!
Life teaches you some lessons at the most unfavourable times but, listen, keep your eyes and ears open, the Universe is trying to tell you something.
Since all of us are forced to work from home, it has made working life difficult and for a person like me sitting and working from home is all the more difficult. But, I am trying. I don’t want to give-up. I do feel the pain at times, I take the rest that I need to and then I have to get back to my work. That’s life!
Well, I wouldn’t want you guys to keep asking me about my pain. I am fine but, yes, there are times when things become slightly difficult due to work from home. But, these days almost all are facing the same issue due to poor sitting posture. We just need to keep ourselves active and work something out to ease the pain. Hehe… I just went off track…
Y’all must be wondering why did I chose today’s day to share my story.
Well, it’s 27th June today.
It’s my Blog’s 1st anniversary!😊
I never thought, I’d ever own a blog. But, this has been one of the best decisions I’ve taken in my life!❤️
Thank you to each and everyone of you for pouring so much love on this soul.😇
