This is the philosophy that we live by.
Since the time I started blogging, I joined instagram and twitter. Then happened our You Tube channel.
I was happy to see our passion turning into such beautiful pictures, posts and videos. Our creations that will live even after we are gone. So surreal it felt. So happy I was.
Then, happened the number game. How many followers and subscribers and all that PR game I never knew existed.

I felt lost. I felt unhappy. My passion for sharing information and honest writing was taken over by a temporary greed to have bigger better numbers. After being lost in this number game and remaining unhappy for almost 3 weeks, I am back. Thank you God!
Yes, I am leaving the number game behind me and sticking to my reality.
I am Soumya Midhun and I love my family, writing, eating, laughing and video making. My little Shaurya’s laughter makes me feel like the luckiest mom on earth. My tired hubby coming home from work and telling me “ I missed you and your tea” makes me the happiest woman ever. That simple is my life and my feelings. I would not want to change it ever.
Hugging my Amma and seeing my Dad laughing with little Shaurya makes me feel blessed. My little bro calling me chubby and irritating me makes me happily angry. Simple pleasures in my life includes AED 1 tea from cafeterias and a drive to Mamzar Beach.
Though born and brought up in the glamorous Dubai, I have never stepped into Sephora ever in my life and own only 2 lipsticks from Maybelline. This is who I am. And the most important thing is I am happy and I am able to make my loved ones happy.
I feel blissful to have met some wonderful and inspiring women on Instagram and I treasure their friendship. That is how simple I want my life to be. Make friends, support each other while following my passion. Numbers? When you are genuine and truly inspire others, numbers will also follow I believe.
I realized happiness is inside us and I want to make it our lifestyle.
