When was the last time you were ready to throw in the proverbial towel? Did you end up letting go, or decided to fight on anyway?
Oh, yes ! a hundred times.Many a times when I see the Facebook pictures of my friends enjoying themselves in some exotic location or get an invite to the house-warming ceremony of my cousin’s third house or see my sister-in-laws flaunt their new diamond jewellery, I scream silently ‘Enough, is Enough !’. If only I had not quit my well-paying job, I could have had all of this and more.
Then all of a sudden, I hear hurried footsteps and even before I get a chance to turn around, I find myself locked in a tight embrace. The doubts vanish, my frown changes into a smile. I hug my little boy tight.
“There is so much I want to share with you, tell you,show you and enjoy with you, a few tired hours in the evening after work would not be enough, for sure”, I think to myself.
It is an experiment for me. I do not know if I was wise or plain foolish but as of now I’m not throwing in my towel. I stand by the decision I took seven years ago.
