When we grow up, too often we are forced choices. You are supposed to consider yourself lucky, if you are at all offered a choice because too many times, people don’t even get a chance to pick.
However, I didn’t want to settle with the choices that were offered. I wanted something that wasn’t on the menu; I wanted more than one thing, why should life be reduced to an either/or situation when there is something called “AND”.
I realized pretty early that if I really wanted something, I had to go on my terms and make it happen. My family told me not to study arts, there isn’t much scope.
Either take up commerce or science, you will have a career. Why? Why should I let you pick my choices? What if I don’t want to fall in these brackets?
As I wasn’t sure of myself that time, I chose science and went on to become an engineer.
The love in a heart never dies. My love for arts kept on flourishing and soon I started freelancing as a writer. Why pick a corporate job exclusively when I could be an engineer and a writer.
I chose my and because I loved wearing twin shades. I am proud of who I am and not sorry for taking such a roundabout turn.
I would not wish my life to take other turns because I am proud of the choices I took. I don’t believe that we are meant to pick only one of the different shades we could be. Feel free to wear as many shades as that which fits your personality and then be who you are. Trust me, you are going to love your own reflection and there is nothing more beautiful than a woman who is happy and proud of who she is.
I choose to have twin careers because choices do not make us, we make our choices! Be proud of the things you do!
