Episode 53 - "Inspiring the World”
by Sonam Sharma
A liberation of the soul.
A statement from Sonam:
“ ‘Life is not just about passing storms, it's also about dancing in the rain!’
I never thought a global crisis could introduce me to a new side of me that I am so excited to meet and create with. I have been discovering parts of me I never knew existed; from art to poetry, from enhancing my self shooting/ filming & editing abilities with minimal resources to understanding what creative 'flow' really means. It's when we feel deeply, truthfully moved by something, some occurrence -could be an event, a person, a trigger, anything, that a magical energy seems to engulf us with a new found passion for 'living', for 'creating', for 'co-creating' and 'connecting' with our world, that we end up becoming instruments of its message.
What could be more gratifying, more fulfilling than knowing the happiness we chase, the passions we live for, every thing that motivates us, inspires us, allows us to flourish, grow and reach out - lives within us already...ready to be unraveled!”
