Split Personality

Somedays I would have long conversations with my husband about ups & downs of life and fear of failure that comes along with it. It is very comforting to speak of these things out loud without being judged. The man really knows how to deal with the crazy Rima, Bollywood corrupted Rima, overly hyper Rima, ambitious Rima, woke up on the wrong side of the bed Rima, and I have to give him extra credit to deal with the fearful Rima. He knows how to handle my various personalities.       

Few days ago, I was telling him how I still wish to do Masters and/or go to law school along with running the photography business. He asked why would I want to do masters if I can directly goto law school? My answer: because it is cool to have more initials after your name like MS – LLB – JD – MBBS etc. Then the usual happened – he looked at me with a spontaneous short laugh, shook his head, and knew he was talking to a nerdy Rima.

I wonder what initials creatives can use after their names? I mean, artists, musicians, actors, singers, photographers are known for their creativity and vision. We get paid for our creativity – not for how many initials are after our name. It doesn’t mean I don’t want to pursue masters in future and when I actually go for it, I will sure write a blog post about it.  For now, I’m extremely thankful for my camera & being behind it. It gives me a self-satisfaction of doing what I love. I’m even more grateful for having a hubby+buddy who happily and with great talent cope up with my split personality.              

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Love,
