I leave everything behind

“I could see myself entering this vortex of crowded people, dodging every single person as if they were asteroids ready to pounce on an opportunity to break a minute piece of meteor who lost his way somewhere on his journey to the distant galaxies, some place where he has never been before.”

have you ever been confused as to what you would do in future? Here is what I say to myself every single day.

I often wonder, what I would do in life. I’m pursuing a graduation course in Economics – although I like it, I wouldn’t want to join a job related to it.Why is it so? I keep telling myself – I cant sit in a cubicle for 8 hours and do the same job every single day. While I lighted a spliff, I said to myself, why cant I write for all my life. I often asked my friend to write a story and get it circulated among’st readers. Maybe this is the time I should be putting it to use myself.

I just love writing – If there is anything that has given a purpose to my life, it is writing. Being an introvert in school, i could only express my feelings through the pen, which gradually transgressed through the keyboard.

Now, I see myself at least 10 times better off than what I was in my school life. However my love for writing has not faded. It gives me the epitome of sedation and feelings.

Now there lies two roads in front of me. I could choose the one which everyone treads on – a path where people earn money but hate what they do, or I could choose a path on which only a few travel where money becomes hard to get but you love what you do. Right now I’ve decided to leave everything behind and think about the future and the only future that appeals to me is one the end of the second path.
