You reach this phase in your life where you pause, ponder & realize, ‘Wo! What am I actually doing??’
Well this happened to me off late, my job is going great, I am enjoying what I am doing. However, there is a definite ‘BUT’ that comes up. I realized that I was not heading as planned. I wanted to work a couple of years and then head for my higher studies before ‘forcibly’ getting hitched! I realized that 2 years have passed by and what was I doing? I am content at the moment, but then I realized, it would not last long! I HAVE to move on! No matter how hunky dory your life is at the moment, you need to push yourself beyond your comfort zone and make it better. I decided to taste the bitter medicine, get back to preparing for my Entrances and now I am feeling kicked about it. I do not know what the consequences will be, will I get in to the school that I desire. Would I be quitting my job for better or for worse! But I have decided to take the risk & face the music.
I realized on thing about myself in all of this- I am initially indecisive, resistant to change & apprehensive about the uncertainty that comes with change. Also, when my folks counseled me about getting back to study I was adamant that I knew what was best for me and would do as I please! But when ‘I’ Make a decision I move on, I do it with 100 pc determination & complete accountability for my actions. I hope that it would bring me favorable results.
Another thing that I learnt from a few friends was- never quit what you are presently doing, without a definite avenue already in place like an admission letter or a new job. As some wise has human said ‘One bird in hand is better than two in the bush!’
Food for thought for someone I deeply care about- ‘Never sulk about something you are unhappy about, DO something to correct it!’ Take the risks! I know it is easier said than done! But, it needs to be done in order to move on! So Go for it Honey!
In hope and a silent prayer to give us determination to MOVE ON with our endeavors, I am signing off :-)
