And sometimes in life you come at such huge crossroads that you are too scared to put a step forward.

I have always believed that the best decisions in life will always be the most difficult ones. It is not necessary that what looks good on paper would look perfect in real life too. I always written here how you should always follow your heart, how you should always do what you love.

And then one day when I was rushing down the Mumbai Metro stairs, I realized - I shouldn't be doing this, I shouldn't be doing this at all. I am not the kind of person who can spend half of her life in office and the rest half being stuck in traffic. I want to travel and explore new places that I didn't even know existed in the first place. And doing a 9 hour shift which eventually turns into a 11 hour shift just isn't helping me in any way.

So I made myself a promise, I am going to grow as a writer and actually take it seriously. In all fairness, I have got nothing to lose. All I have to do is try and push myself a little harder. I already have a few writing projects lined up and may be a few more in the future. Even got a call for a permanent content writer position but didn't even go for an interview because it was in Mumbai and I just don't want to be in this city any more.

I just wish I could go back in time back to March 2014 and do this same thing then, I just wish I was this serious back then. But at that time, I was just a normal lazy college kid doing everything she could to spend her dad's money. Well, I guess better late than never.

Everyday is a new beginning and may be this could be my new beginning.

My boy, letting it all go at Arambol beach, Goa. One of my favourite places in the world

  1. Whenever you decide you follow your passion, it is not late. It is never late. Keep following your heart and that's the best thing ever. All the best!

  2. Whenever the realisation strikes, whenever the courage builds up is the right time. Didn't you upload a resume on Naukri? I think I read that on Indiablogger in one of the forums. I have been saying it for years but never really had the courage to do anything. I am insanely jealous and extremely in aww of people who can do it. All the best to you... I hope you make it BIG!!

  3. Definitely gonna support you here.. I'm considered the odd one because I refuse to be "a doctor only" and follow my dreams, whether it is writing or other passions.
    There will always be moments of doubt... but in the end, the real question should probably be "how happy would you be if you were just another brick in the wall"
