Discovery of self.

Good Evening, everyone! I hope you’re having a happy Sunday.

Before anything, I would like to thank for keeping the nominations to his latest award open to everyone who reads his post. I found his post interesting and the questions he asked are tempting.  Never thought of a few questions, so it is challenging for me to answer them.

Here I start…..

1. What do you do on a daily basis to achieve your dreams?

I don’t think I have a dream. Every day I do what I love to do. Ready to teach the young generation, that is my job. I get a salary, some I spend and some I save, life is beautiful.

2. What is the biggest challenge you’re facing right now?

Don’t know whether it is the biggest challenge of mine, but I want to settle down in a place with a small home and a beautiful surrounding garden with flowers. But, this dream is not reachable in near future. Sad feeling indeed.

3. Looking back at the choices you’ve made this year and where they’ve landed you, do you have any regrets?

I spent this year fruitfully. Visited places, did my duties towards my family and friends, did my job. No regrets!

4. What area of your life are you not satisfied with?

I could have achieved more than what I have now. So, careerwise I am not happy.

5. What are your thoughts concerning today’s social media?

I love social media, connecting with people who help me to learn a lot. But I am not sure about the young people who waste lots of time on social media. It is also my concern for the young girls who get depressed because of a virtual competition between ‘have’s and ‘have not’s. I read many articles that this competition is making the minds weak. It really bothers me.

6. If you could meet one person, living or dead, who would it be?

I always wanted to meet Albert Einstein and Sir Issac Newton in my childhood days.The wish still persists.

7. Do you believe in love at first sight?

Yes, I do.

8. Ebook or hardcover? And, why?

Love both versions. Nowadays we spend most of the time on internet surfing. Hence reading an ebook is convenient. It is like anytime, anywhere I can open a book. A book with a hardcover is always gracious, attractive from outside but you will have to throw it into the bins if the content is not interesting. Hence, buy a hardcovered book if it worths your money,

9. What books are you reading now?

No time to read a book. Life is too busy. My readings revolve around what I teach in class.

10. What is the most interesting thing you’ve learnt about yourself this year?

I just loved this question. My latest realisation is that I didn’t know my potential. I was unaware of my accomplishments. Recently I arranged all my achievements in a file and it is just ‘wow’ beating on my soul. That feeling was great. That is the best gift 2018 brought to me.

Thanks a lot, Obinna. Hope you liked a few answers.

I invite all of you who are reading this post to try these questions and feel the feelings of your soul!

    I totally enjoyed reading this blog post, Swastika! I love ALL your answers. I can relate to some, even. Like that one about who you’d love to meet. Einstein has always been some sort of idol for me… I would very much love to meet him, if it were possible 😂
    I am happy you’ve accomplished a lot this year, even though you wish you had achieved more. An achievement is an achievement, no matter how small.

    Thank you for answering my questions, Swastika. This was a good read. 😊
