It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.
It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive.
It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me is true. l want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself.
I want to know if you can see Beauty even when it is not pretty every day.
It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom you have studied, I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away.
l want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments

I read this at a cafe in Mcleodganj, Himachal Pradesh. I was staying in a travellers hostel at Dharamkot where I met some really interesting people who shared some really interesting stories.
Here’s a video from my trek from Dharamkot to Triund. Let me know what you think 🙂
