Warning: might contain traces of smugness.
Very often, I have been told by many that I am a good, principled person.
Then again, quite often I have been told I am an ass. Frequently by the same people who despite this indictment (!) continue to hold firmly their first opinion.
It came as a surprise to me at first, on how one can hold these seemingly contradictory views together.
Then I came across a movie dialogue, something which always stuck with me - it was a missing piece to my jigsaw - “Historically, the best perfumes in the world…they’re all laced with something nasty…Sweet and sour…rotten and delicious. Flowers, but with garbage." -- American Hustle
We all have many sides to us. As we try to brew the best fragrance possible, dusting the nasty under the carpet might not be the best way to go.
What we perceive as our weaknesses are often our biggest strengths. • If I am stubborn and stuck, I can be tenacious and unshakeable too • If I am angry, I can be highly driven too • If I suffer anxiety and fear of the future, I can be a forward-looker and a brilliant planner too • If I am pained, I can be an empath too.
While I certainly am not calling myself the ‘best perfume’, through the means of music, words and fitness –
I wish to record my journey here towards holistic awareness and self-betterment and put forth ways on brewing the best possible fragrances we can be.
