In continuation to my last post The wonderful sight of hope, let me tell you one more old story about me..!
During the school days and during senior secondary post that, like most of my friends, I was pretty directionless about what I wanted to do or become in life (not that I am sure about that now anyway)!!
I was studying just for the sake of studying. Because everyone else around me was studying. I was just being a part of the herd. Doing whatever others around me did, well… not everything but yes, almost everything.
With no proper aim about my future and not having decided what I wanted to do, unlike many of my friends who by then, had figured out what they wanted to do in life and had left for good / BIG colleges elsewhere in the country, I decided to stay back in my hometown.
I saw my life was going nowhere but I was least bothered about it anyway. I was happy continuing the same lazy life. At times, I thought that it was high time I actually do something about my life until it’s too late but every time, the gap between thinking and actually doing something seemed to be too big to me and I always was more comfortable in letting everything remain as they were, until… SHE came in my life!
……let’s leave all the details about how she came into my life for some other time……..
Ruchi, now my wife gave me that kick of motivation I needed in my life 🙂 .
And suddenly, I was all very serious (well, comparatively at least) about life, career, studies and all such things from whom, I had always maintained a fair enough distance.
By the time I was about to finish my college, I had decided that I will be moving out once I am done with it. Whether I will join further studies or I will look for a job was one thing that remained to be decided but the moving out was.
Finally I broke the news at home! It was a decision that made my parents & sister bit sad, which was natural, not only because no one wants their loved one to move away but also because they were almost certain that I would not be able to be on my own, far away from home.
Given the fact that I had lived all my life until then totally dependent on them, almost for everything, it was nothing unusual if they thought I would not be able to live on my own.
But as they say, ‘you gotta do what you gotta do’ !
I started persuading my parents and quiet a few discussions and arguments later, they finally agreed. Actually, the did not simply agree. It was a deal instead B-) . The deal was, I can go out only if I agree to be back in 2 years!!
Its my 6th years away from home so no, I did not return after 2 years!
Fast forward to this day!
All of it, the arguments & the persuasions seems to have worked out well for me and also my family in general. They are as happy as I am, if not more.
Married. Good going on the professional front. Great in terms of things I am passionate about and exploring new ventures as well… !
Be it in my personal life or professional life, I find myself in a better position in my life from where I would have been had Ruchi not come to my life and inspired me to take bold steps in the right direction.
