Hello! Welcome to my blog. My name is Daljit Dhanjal and I am very excited to share my first blog post with you. It has been a long time coming. Creating my own personal blog had been just a thought that floated in my mind for several years, but I’ve finally decided to go through with it!
Well to start off, a little bit about me: I graduated from the University of Guelph-Humber from the social services program back in 2017. I was lucky enough to experience a number of different jobs within the field early on (because I could not see myself settling in any one position for too long), which ultimately gave me a general idea of what to expect. Although this field of work is very valuable (and it takes a very special type of person to do it), I have come to realize that it is not the direction that I would like to pursue at this point in time. Regardless though, it most definitely was NOT a waste of my time, as I’ve had the honour of meeting and working with such beautiful souls along the journey who have truly made me the person I am today. As all things must come to end, I believe my time in social services has reached its end point. However, this decision has only further ignited the fire within me to pursue my dreams and goals of making a difference in society; no matter how small.
Why blogging you ask? Well simply because in my last few years of university I had come to realize how much I love to write, not the essay assignments which darkened my eye bags and made me lose many hours of sleep per se, but in general. I love the idea of putting my thoughts, feelings and experiences in writing and having it spark similar feelings in another person. I intend to write about anything and everything from personal experiences/thoughts to mental health to wellness to Oneness. Whatever else comes to my mind, you and I both will have to wait and see. Sometimes all it takes is a random conversation with a stranger to generate new ideas.
Essentially I will be discussing matters that have always been close to my heart, and then anything else that resonates with me along the way, which I feel others should know and learn about. The theme will vary from formal to informal because INCLUSIVITY hello!?! The intention is to reach out to as many people as possible, regardless of age or gender, and hopefully to help spark something within them in one way or another.
