You experience the same magic when you follow your heart. Whether you follow your heart or not, in life there are bound to be obstacles. But every single day becomes lively in spite of these challenges and obstacles. Every day feels magical and adventurous. Life feels meaningful and full of purpose.

My journey

I fell in love with the world of cinema right from my childhood. Cameras, lights, stories, costumes, and everything else about movies fascinated me. My heart was always in movies. It took me great courage and a good amount of struggle to follow my heart. And it was worth it. That is how a national award-winning film like “Show” happened, making my father and the Telugu film industry proud of me. This would not have happened if I had ignored my heart’s calling. Be it my work or my marriage or my self-development journey, “Follow your heart” theme guided my life predominantly.

When I followed my heart’s wisdom, I felt alive and full of passion for life. When I listened to the gentle whispers of my heart, I found guidance and way when I faced obstacles. My entire life taught me that when I follow my heart, I live my truth.

But, many times, it so happens that we can’t understand what our heart says. This is a common scenario faced by many. Why does this happen?
