Hi guys! I have some news to share
I’d appreciate if you took a couple of minutes out from your evening and give this a read.
House of Gee, my company, was officially born on 21st March, 2017. And today, almost all documents are in place so it feels like it’s finally all done.
I’ve worked pretty hard to reach to this point. Day and night. And I’d like to appreciate my efforts and everything I’v
e achieved so far. No, I’n not being self-obsessed or anything. I’m just happy.
Here’s a little story that I’d like to tell all of you, so you could all get something – hopefully good-from it.
For the past 12-13 years, I’ve been dealing with something known as Auto-immune disorder. It basically means that my immune system cannot differentiate between good and bad cells, and it consequently attacks my own body. If you’d ever google
this term, you’ll find a list of diseases that come under it. And i have some of those – some diagnosed and some still not understood. Since, it’s not a common thing to happen, many people (including doctors) didn’t understand what I was going through and couldn’t help me heal. I was often mocked at for being the weak one, the strange one and the sick one in school and in college. I was often thought of as someone who pretends her way through examinations and responsibilities (so also the fake one). In fact, when the doctors failed to diagnose the problem, i was told it’s because I’m just stressed and “it’s all in my head”. And I just got trapped in this cycle.
I was told I will never be able to achieve anything in life and all I’ll be ever good for would be marriage ( some didn’t even believe that ).
And today, I get messages from people I don’t even know, appreciating my work and my talent.
So this is for all of you who have dreams over shadowed with excuses – If i can do it, you really should.
The most difficult thing for me is to wake up in the morning because the whole body aches. Literally, from head to toe. I’m photosensitive too, so I can’t even open my eyes without having to go through pain. It takes
almost an hour for me to prepare myself to move and another 20-30 minutes to get off the bed. It took longer when I was younger. That’s how my days started in school and that’s how they start now. Apart from pains, I deal with fatigue and mood swings and a couple of other things. I’m gluten intolerant, I can’t have salt and spices. So I can’t even be a proper Punjabi!
I won’t talk in detail about this. Not now, atleast.
I’m really happy with my life, and I feel amazingly blessed. And now I’m also really proud of myself for everything. I feel so good calling myself a fashion entrepreneur, a company and a brand owner, a designer, a creative. I’m thankful to my family and my friends who became family. And my pooch – my fur baby-Mr. Doughnut.
And I felt like sharing this happiness with you. I’m so happy to have something of my own. A part of me. My vision. My passion.
So please do what makes you happy, feel good about what you have, know that you’re blessed. Make your life amazing for yourself, be happy and laugh out loud! Really loud, like I do. Even if people stare at you. Just laugh!
Despite all the things wrong and difficult, you can do it. You can achieve what you want. I promise. So yeah! I’m just really happy 🙂
Oh and my collection’s online too now ^_^
