do you remember? I started this blog five years ago, with the intention to write a post-a-day for three months. I was facing a crisis in my personal and professional life: horrid wannabe boss, finances, relationship, instability.
Where am I today? In my home town, with my ageing parents and the cat, where I was afraid to end up if my projects didn’t succeed. And guess what? It’s not as bad as I thought.
Because I might have put up with things out of fear. The fear that if I fail this and that, I might be cast back to where I was at the beginning. A kind of snakes and ladders game.
And guess what? I am not the exact same person. I took risks, huge risks and I failed some of them, for reasons also independent on my effort.
But despite the fact that I didn’t get the funding, that I overworked and I spent all my economies, despite the fact that a member of my family had health issues and I had to go home for a while, I am confident about the future.
I have plans, dreams, and most importantly, I am working towards them.
So, from my place, whatever it is today, I am working towards the next step.
And everything learnt is a profit.
If a snake has swallowed me, I can still take a ladder because I know I can!
Thank you dear blog and dear blog-friends with your wise comments for helping me realize this!
