Hi there!

I am Simer Dhume. I proudly wear the badge of a young mother. Becoming a mother is the best thing that has happened to me. Life has never been the same ever since I held my daughter in my arms two years ago. Some days can feel long and arduous, but she has given me indescribable happiness. My daughter has filled a void I never knew existed before.

“I believe the choice to become a mother is the choice to become one of the greatest spiritual teachers there is.” — Oprah.

Let’s begin with my childhood.

I want to tell you about my childhood is — it’s no ordinary childhood. Growing up in India, I spent time on the tennis court from an early age (5 years). The love for the game came naturally as I saw my father coach other students. I knew that I wanted to become a tennis player early on; it wasn’t easy — numerous hours of hard work on the court and juggling school and life.

But 15+ years of tennis life in India helped me achieve my dream of becoming a Nation Champion and playing College Tennis and shaped my personality in a way that I am proud of.

Adulthood

Multipotentiality is the state of having many exceptional talents, any one or more of which could make for an excellent career for that person.

Human beings have many different kinds of strength. Navigating our strength of character, talent, interest, and resources is essential. My interests extended beyond the tennis court, and I am thankful to my parents for always encouraging me to follow my heart.

I studied psychology in college, which was a great experience to understand and explore the human mind and its possibilities. I always identified myself as a behaviorist — belonging to the school of behavioral psychology. However, not alone but coupled with hard work and the right attitude, talent leads to success in any field.

Writing chose me, and I am so grateful.

I earned a Master’s degree in Journalism and worked for a few years in Public Relations. That’s how my love for writing evolved. I read a lot growing up and always carried books on the tennis tour. I did write for the college magazine, which meant I had the hidden talent to be a writer. But sometimes, it takes longer to recognize talent. Plus, writing is a skill, and a craft one needs to work on. It’s a journey I am enjoying a lot. Writing has become a habit similar to my two cups of cappuccino daily. :)

I admit the adrenaline I experienced while working as a Public Relations professional was excellent. Working with Weber Shandwick India was a phenomenal experience as I got to work with some fantastic clients in the retail and finance sector. But I also knew I was not cut out for the media environment and realized that this isn’t my dream job.

But the fire to write remained with me. And I became a blogger. I am sharing my life stories through the lens of nature from New York, where I live with my husband and daughter. Follow @hintsof.life and read nature stories.

Tennis coach

Gravitating toward tennis coaching was a natural decision. When I am on the tennis court, I am the happiest person. Translating my knowledge of the game and sharing my love for the sport so loved in the United States Of America is mind-blowing. Visiting the U.S. Open is the highlight of the year.
