10 Mar Chase your dreams and #StartANewLife
I was brought up by my grandparents. Many people ask me if it was boring with no friends,school stress and depression due to missing parents. No, it was really fun.Most of us have fond memories of different things from our childhood. For me my most embraced memories is related to my childhood with my grandparents. I love my grandparents because they were inspiring and they never forced me to do anything which I didnt like. They let me free to follow my heart and do things that I am passionate about. I was me and I never tried to be someone else or escape something.
My grandfather was working in Railways and he always wanted me to join the public sector. My parents wanted me to go for engineering, But I did my B.Sc in visual communication due to my love for media.
The course was unique with photography, web designing, movies and special acttivities and I enjoyed it. My grandpa used to teach me right from my childhood and my grandma used to take care of me. I was always top in studies and I passed all scholarship exams and competitions with so much ease. By the time, I was about to finish college my grandparents passed away. I got university second rank and I got a campus placement in Wipro. There was a vaccum in my heart since my loved ones were not with me. I wanted a bank job because I got interested in finance and I can also spend time on blogging. I had written an exam for SBI but my name was not there in the list.
My mind was full of doubts and confusions. I had to join Wipro in Bangalore. It was hard to stay away from home being a pampered girl of parents. Moving out is a good decision but you need planning. I was not restricted to four walls of my home and I could meet new people. I got new opportunities. I was independent but I had my responsibilities.
l felt like I don’t know what I am doing. I worried about things I don’t know. I felt anxious and lost in the beginning. As time passed by, I realized that it is totally normal and fear is the biggest barrier. I felt my fears and did things with my best efforts.
I made some new friends and I had training for three months. I got the top candidate award. After that, we were in freepool for so many days. We werent given any projects and had to waste time sitting idle. I got bored and frustated. By the time, I got into a project, I already had a hate relationship with my job. I wanted to resign but I couldnt. We were in the Wista programme and we had a bond of 4 years. If I want to resign, I will have to pay a big sum of money. I cried many nights thinking there was no way to get out now.
One day, I got a call from my home and the happy news came along that I got the bank job.My name was there in the second phase results. My uncle told me to resign. He paid the money. I joined the bank. It was the toughest decision ever. The change was for good. I am back to my home town, living with my parents. I love my present job and I am also blogging regularly in my leisure time. “Awake The Giant Within ” book by Anthony Robbins motivated me a lot.
The more you implement your passions, more successful you are.
