Follow you passion!

I stand at a crossroad
A decision to be made
Visions of my past
Obscuring, before me what lay

Remove all doubts
Let go of all fears
Take the first step
with my mind austere

I must close my eyes
and my heart must be resolute
the time has come
for me to make my move

It has been decided
and I walk my chosen path
I shall face all hardships
with no fear in my heart


Coming Soon…

Hello everyone!

I’m excited to tell you all that it’s almost time when I finally launch the project I’ve been working on for a long time and which has taken up most of my past months.

My dream of having my own company in the field of fitness is about to become a reality. I can’t wait to share it with you all. There is so much in store and some amazing stuff is on the way.

Thanks for your support as always.

These past few days have been extremely hectic and the upcoming days are going to be even more demanding. I’ve been putting in countless hours everyday back to back trying to study for my upcoming exams (chartered accountancy and fitness) and working on a big project that might just change my life around.

I never even imagined that being at home not having a job would keep me so busy. I started my patreon page and almost lost track of it, but believe me when I say this, I’m not finding the time to do all the things I want to do.

But at the end of the day, this blog is where I started more than four years ago. This is where I first shared myself and my thoughts with the world and this is where I will always return no matter where life takes me. I will always keep sharing my thoughts with you all through this blog.

Thank you to all who have been with me from the start and to all who have joined me on my journey recently and to the ones who will be joining me in the future. I welcome you all and as always I love hearing from each and everyone of you guys. Thank you!

Befriend yourself…

How many times have we come across people who capture our attention from the start. They captivate us and if with the passage of time they become our close friends, we tend to rely on them to be there for us whenever and however we need them. We find comfort in talking to some and with others we find it difficult to share even the most trivial of things.

While it is great to have someone of such importance in our lives, one mistake we make is to rely on them so much that in their absence we feel lost and we feel that nothing can help us in our time of misery.

Speaking from experience I have faced certain situations where I had absolutely no one to turn to and no one I could share my state of mind with. As most writers, I too tend to over think and dwell on things, not because I’m weak, but because I feel everything, be it sadness or happiness, a lot more deeply, just like all writers do.

I realised when I found myself all alone in a room with nothing but my thoughts that if there is anyone a person should completely rely on, it’s themselves. You will never leave yourself alone and you will always be there whenever you need yourself. The only thing we fail to achieve is the ability to speak to our inner self.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this and I will share more about this on a later post.

Big Announcement! Ak the Wordsmith is on Patreon!

Hello everyone! I have great news. First of all I would like to thank all my followers for the years of support. It means the world to me.

I just created my Patreon page – a place where you can get an insight on my creative process and contribute to the development and future endeavours of this blog (including my first novel).

I created ‘Ak the Wordsmith’ more than four years ago with the idea of pursuing my passion for writing and sharing my thoughts with the world.

Times change and with that our circumstances change and sometimes we enter a dry spell in terms of our sources of income. Since I’m going through something of the sort, I realized that I could give my followers a chance to support my goals and my passion.

Your contributions will be most appreciated and will assist me in continuing to write on my blog and support me.

I will be creating much more fun stuff for my patrons (people who will contribute to the cause) such as patron only posts, Q&A sessions, insight on my creative process, writing classes and tips, sneak peak on my novel and maybe even a chance to incorporate your ideas into my novel. All this and much more can be done if I am able to receive the support that will allow me to do such things.

Once again, your loyalty and support is always most appreciated because we are all part of the same community and I love to hear from each and every community member.

Patreon page –

Thank you!

December 5, 2012. The first night I created this blog and the night I wrote my very first post. It’s been more than four years, yet there is something about tonight that urged me to write once again after having taken an unwanted break from my blog for months.

Perhaps it is the sky tonight with the similar shade of purple it had on that fateful night… Perhaps it is the moon and how it plays hide and seek amongst the clouds just as it did on that night, or perhaps it is simply the fact that tonight I feel as lonely as I had felt on that very night when I realized that I have always been alone, and the presence of everyone around me is merely an illusion… a fallacy that my mind has created to ease the pain.

I can’t complain, or rather I shouldn’t complain, for it is the only way of survival I have ever known. It is rather strange to feel exactly the way I did so many nights ago, when the only friends I had were the clouds swimming in the purple sea, the wind whistling through the rustling trees and the stars and the moon smiling down as if trying to comfort me.

And now that I once again continue on my path, I welcome you to join me. It is a long road that we must travel, and I can only wish to see a company so fine as yours along the uncharted road called life.
