A little about me for whoever found their way here deliberately or stumbled upon this page. It wouldn’t be wrong to call me “The Bored Banker”. With 20 years of banking behind me, it’s safe to say that I am good at what I do. The door to banking was open when I finished university and I walked straight through it. Banking chose me and I accepted.
It took me some years, 14 to be precise, to realize that the profession that had consumed a large part of my adult life was simply a job. While I devoted a lot of time and energy to it, there was something missing. That’s when it dawned that banking was just one aspect of my life; it was not “My Life”!
This realization was the beginning of a new journey and this blog, created in 2012, was the product of that journey! But with no clue about blogging, whilst I had opened it, I did not write until much later in 2016. In the interim, I dabbled with art and sketching but soon realized that art was hard work and one had to clean-up after every sitting. I enjoyed it but it was a lot of work. Blogging on the other hand did not require any cleaning up :).
“Silver Linings” as this blog was initially named was renamed on 7/11/2017 as “What Life said to Me”. To know why I changed it, you would need to read my post : We have a new name!
Am I Great at Writing? Have I studied Literature in University?
An Emphatic No!
I have never written professionally. I have never won a writing competition but my mother like all doting mothers, believed her daughter could write and she made no secret of it; much to my chagrin. There was absolutely no point in telling her that I had no idea about grammar or that I really did not have the “stuff” that writers’ were made of.
So to all you readers out there, this is both a warning and a sincere request. Please do not judge the grammar and the vocabulary. If you’re looking for a “literature” kind of blog, then you’re in the wrong place. This blog is simply about Life, written in simple layman’s English.
Why this blog? Simply because it allows me to do what I love most -Write!
Like someone rightly said, till 40 you are learning. It’s only after 40 you start living; so here I am, finally doing what I enjoy most. But I hope you enjoy reading my posts as much I enjoy writing them. I hope it brings back memories. I hope it makes you think and I hope you come back for more.
What I love more than writing the post:
I love your comments. So drop in a line and share your feelings on the post or what you think could be improved. Remember, I’m on a journey and I’m learning along the way.
