ABOUT ME

Hi there! I am Diksha Agarwal,

It’s so nice to e-meet you!

Thank you for stopping by!

I am a 20 something, lost somewhere in India, always searching for meaningful books, places and practices to inculcate and run after.

This search has so far led to Minimalism, Intentional living, and sustainability in fashion & travel.

Every time I learnt anything interesting, I’d have this urge to share it with the people around me. This urge is the reason for this very blog that you have stumbled upon, but I’m sure will love.

Why?

Because intricate thought and detail has gone into this blog.

It took my 7 months to decide what I wanted to write about, come up with a name, get the website set up, and start writing, but most of the time went in self-doubt & wondering if this was worth it. There are so many blogs out there, how will mine cut through the noise? I still don’t know the answer to that, but I’m willing to find out.

So, after much pondering, I decided.

I want to write about living a good life.

By good, I mean a life you don’t need escaping from, one which is perpetually your “happy place”, a life you have chosen and built yourself, a life full of purpose. This can be achieved in so many ways, some meditate, some take sabbaticals, some start planting trees, the list is endless, but I want to share the ones I choose with you;

Sustainable and slow, intentional living.

Like Neil Perry says it in Dead Poets Society, “I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life.”

Stick around; let’s see where this journey takes us!

Thus I present to you, “Through the Skylight”, hoping to bring to you just what a skylight brings to a home; cool air, sunshine, insulation during the winters, and inspiration.

Just like a skylight makes a house that much better, I will try to enrich your life through this blog.

So no matter what your house looks like, I’ve got a skylight for you. (TOO many metaphors I know)

Thank you for your time!
