“I know well what I am fleeing from but not what I am in search of”.
Instead of putting it where I am now let me project “What Am I”.
WHO AM I?
Thirty years of existence and finally this question might get answered to an extent.
It wasn’t abruptly given but the method on how it was delivered was of utmost humility.
For the first six years of my life, I have thought that life’s nothing more than getting everything that I wanted. Living was nothing more than basking under the sun and playing to my hearts content.
I thought I was living life to the fullest yet it wasn’t so. For the next six years, I was introduced to institutionalized education, I gained new insights on what I must be when I grew up, gained new friends, enjoyed the laughter, cried the tears. I thought I was living life to the fullest yet it wasn’t so.
The next six our years introduced me to the concept of peer groups, rules and regulations, policies and politics. These were the years when butterflies started fluttering in my stomach. These were the years when I finally understood when they said that life’s like a wheel. I thought I was living life to the fullest yet it wasn’t so.
Another five years at a university and finally I was getting somewhere. I learned diligence, patience and hard work. Perseverance was one of the keys to success, I found out later. I wasn’t living life to the fullest, I knew, and so I moved on.
And so, I finally walked out of school, thought life taught me everything I should know yet it wasn’t so. I learned as years passed by that everything that I do, every endeavour I get into, everyone whom I talk to, I was learning something and eventually who I am now is the sum of everything that I learned and every experience that I gained.
