Winking at life

Not everyone has their whole life planned out from the moment they were born. We all go through the moments when choosing what’s right and wrong, what’s better or best and what’s more important, becomes the most difficult step. We have blurry visions for our future because most of us can’t find the person to stand in our shoes and guide us.


My parents had decided an entirely different career for me that I had no interest in. I was a pre-medical student with zero ambition. One question in my blurry vision was why pursue your career in something least of your interest. So at that point my life changed when I took a stand for myself, and began to realize that I am capable of much more things, all one needs is better exposure to locate what they actually want for themselves.

Stay positive and be real because this way, I believe no force will be able to hold you back. I’ve made my own tool from positivity, Humor. Because lecturing people about positivity only gets boring, I tend to spread it with humor and I have come to the realization that this tool urges me to live the excitement boosted up in me, It helps me to light up my mood and those who surround me.12417941_923151921071495_2836722806315940469_n

“Embrace the glorious mess that you are.”-Elizabeth Gilbert

Learning is a continuous process and it has helped me in exploring the unique aspects of my personality. Joining Lahore School Of Economics was one of the best decisions of my life. “Three years of grooming” I would say, it has been a roller coaster ride, full of amazing experiences followed by few falls that will always be remembered as a lesson.Through out this time I have learned to  be  more confident and self explicit.


 Since I love travelling, I always try to cut things on my bucket-list. It became essential for me as it reveals my inner strengths and weaknesses. I have overcome my greatest fears such as water and heights and it has fearlessly made me live life to the fullest. I believe for me exposure to different cultures, societies not only broadens your mind but it helps you build a new personality and self-confidence.

 “Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.” – Ibn Battuta


Girls love to dress up nice, look pretty , follow the fashion trends but unlike other girls, I would like to be the trend. I would rather design my own clothes than wear a designer’s. One thing I have aimed for sure is to open up my own boutique store someday. I’d like to add it in my little hobbies because I find excitement and joy in designing clothes just like travelling and I practically do it all the time, I dress up my sisters, my mom and design there clothes most of the time.  I am not trying to brag about it but when it comes to fashion advise in my family, they all know where to go.


Moving on towards my love for the entertainment industry. I love acting and  if my family would have given me the liberty to join film industry , I would have definitely joined it and who knows what would have happened. But not everything you wish for comes true. And I genuinely believe that whatever happens, happens for a reason and for our own good. However I fulfill a chunk of my  dream by acting into a movie named “Four walls of sin” in a media course offered to us.


I think this title perfectly suits my life because i have keen interest in numerous things and I try to work these things out side by side to figure out where  I truly want to pursue my career.

  1. Very well expressed. Your writing is raw and fresh plus i can totally relate to it as we all get confuse at some point in our lives due to various options and oppurtunities but the whole idea of taking things alltogether and giving equal importance to each is the hardest task one can ever wish to accomplish.

  2. “Stay positive and be real because this way, I believe no force will be able to hold you back.”
    Beautifully written, Aqsa.

    However, just to share, I think we as humans sometimes learn a lot from other’s experiences.
    Wishing you all the best for future. Goodluck! 🙂

  3. Beautifully written. I think not having a planned life is much better then having a planned one. It is less disappointments and more surprises. It could be depressing sometimes to see others following a set course to achieve something when you have no clear ambitions but I believe everything will fit just fine in the puzzle of life at the end.

  5. This is really inspiring! I think soo many people go through this same conundrum in life and fail to make the tough call that you did. I think it’s very important that young people start taking a more proactive approach in their lives. Your example serves as a very good reminder of how there’s a lot more to life that you can discover if only you have the courage to chase after your dreams and not fall pray to the status quo.

  6. A very well written article. You couldn’t be any more true on the fact that we should all have someone to guide us in our life through all the thick and thins. In the end all that matters is that we live our live’s like the way we want to and be the person we can be proud of.
    Keep up the good work! 🙂

    1. One of the best things about this article is that it actually defines who you are. There is nothing fake in it. Excellent writing. And there is one thing i have realized about you is that you have a stubborn mind. So if you want to achieve something, you will find a way.

  9. Truly a beautiful description of the dilemma almost everyone in their youth face in this country. Your story is an example for many, including myself, to stand up for what we believe in! More power and love to you!


  10. Voila!
    Amazingly written! I must say, im impressed.
    Also I think that all of us at some point in life have been there, but the only way to rise up again, is to believe that everything happens for a reason, that will only make sense to us at the right time. So for now, lets live.
    Way to go, Aqsa. Godspeed!

  11. Beautiful!
    Such an amazing piece to read and the best part is that most of us can relate to this. We all have been moving in life with blurred visions towards our future. This made me realize that if you stay focused and positive you will find a way to achieve your goals no matter how big or small they are.
    Well done. Keep up the good work (y)
