A mother of three, a home maker with sixteen people in the family, the one woman in the family who doesn’t look up around from the pool of chores she have to fulfill and already turning 30! Imagine this woman, suddenly being determined to fulfill her dream of being a writer after leaving it being for atleast a decade.
Well, yes! Thats me! The one girl who gre up striving with the dream of getting a PhD degree in psychology and being a great author one day. But, bring from a conservative family was the only chain that succeeded in caging out that dreams behind the walls of womanhood. Getting married at an early age followed by two kids in a gap of few years added more to the plan. Some more responsibilities of being in a huge family with so much socialising was another string that still tightened the ropes together.
Well, one fine day while nursing my last kid, scrolling through facebook feeds, I found myself again. The girl with so many dreams I left behind so many years ago. She wanted to come true of all those chains, she wanted to breathe free, she wanted an identification of her own, she wanted to live, yes finally she wanted to live being herself!
Not that I wasn’t happy in my previous roles. Those were exceptionally awesome, but I really wanted to live my dreams. Wanted to know for my talent. I discussed the same with my husband, and he suggested me, it’s never too late to start dreaming once again! He encouraged me to find myself again,to live my dreams again and start what I left out with.
So, at the age of 29, I started learning wide global languages like French and Arabic and Russian. I started with being a social media influencer and promoting brands on various social channels, slowly and steadily I started writing, though writing books replaced writing blogs, writing fiction novels replaced writing more about the in trends of fashion and yukt delights of food, but still I got a space to put my creativity forward.
Gradually, my blog started getting a lot of approval on all platforms and even being nominated for one of the best blogs awards. It got me the fame, I so much craved for, the identification I so much dreamt of.
I couldn’t continue on those formal degrees of colleges and graduation to get me a PhD, but still I am doing some private certified courses for the same. Although, I lived a decade in vacuum and couldn’t succeed in bringing my dreams to life, but still even after starting late, I am far ahead of those who got all the education and chances that I couldn’t get in life.
Well,I personally think it’s all because of my husband’s encouragement I got and those love I got from my kids. I often just think, thank God, I started, although a little late, but it’s better than never being able to do anything!
