My Gardening Journey- Akanksha
It’s Akanksha with the Instagram handle @artitution_homie. I am a certified makeover artist, automation programmer, and engineer turned influencer and being a Venetian I have been always attracted to beauty & makeovers. My training in this particular field taught me the nuances of this art. At present, I am staying in Mysuru for 6 years and I am very much attached to nature.
How it all started
At the time of lockdown, I started a makeover of my home and as a habit shared it on social media. My work received appreciation from people from every walk of life. This very thing rekindled my ambition and gave me a new purpose in life and it led me to the world of Influencers. I started sharing my home makeover ideas with cost-effective and reusable household items; the mantra was ‘’think before throw’’. My ideas focus on all homemaker women who do not want to invest large chunks of money in the beautification of their homes. Periodic small changes and additions in the home gave those women a sense of ecstasy. I considered this as my true reward. In all my videos one thing is imperative, i.e. presence of plants in the frame. I have almost 25 varieties of plants at my home and the purpose of their presence in my posts is to try and influence people for plantation.
And the Journey continues
Plants are like little babies in the home, giving you positive vibes and asking for nothing in return. Greenery brings added color and flavor to your house and brings us close to nature. So now I am a wife, mother, house manager, gardener, and influencer Akanksha. Adding one more title was never an easy task, especially with the lockdown imposed during the school holidays of my daughters. Time management and sacrifice of “me time” is the key here. I have basically no proper schedule for my work, it’s like as and when I get an idea, either my children relinquish me or they will be really demanding demand. My followers on Insta motivate me to keep sharing my thoughts, At night after posting a story/ video I think of a sabbatical but in the morning when I go through reactions from my followers and their appreciation, all my apprehensions, fears, and struggles vaporize. I make myself a strong cup of coffee and gear up for a hectic day. So, basically, I am still getting the zest of my life and so far got hold of only one thing; hard work, dedication, and focus is the only thing in your control, rest is your destiny. Dream and dream big, and try to achieve it, this is what we call “being human” (Salman ki Kasam).
This is my entire journey hope you all love it.
