Many of us run like headless chickens in our daily routines. We give our best in our jobs; we leave everything we have in the pitch, and at the end of the day, we are so tired that we wish we could create a better life for us. But we don't have time for that because we need to be ready for battle the next day. That cycle restarts and without noticing it, five, or maybe ten years go by.

Social pressure 'wrote' a long list of things we are supposed to do with our lives. In my case, even after ticking every single box of that list, my life didn't feel right, something was missing.

It can be anything, every fulfilling life is unique, but all of them have the same origin: visioning, the ultimate life-changing energy creator.
