I am a stay at home mother of two bright, beautiful and lovely kids. Been married for 18 years to an extremely supportive and loving husband and I earn my pocket money by transcreating documentaries, animation series and movies from English to Hindi. As you can guess, on family front life is absolutely hunky dory ( touch wood , I remain the quintessential typical woman).
But lately I have been wondering, is that all there is to life, I am a bright, intelligent woman. cant I do something more productive with my life. I see all the career oriented women, with amazingly successful careers, mind you I am not comparing, I am grateful for each and every thing in my life, but still there is a vacuum… a need for that edge… which I know I am capable of, but the question is how to get that edge.
What should I do which will not only interest me but would be worthy of my time and money. And I can think of no better way than writing, yes writing gives wings to my thoughts, my creativity, my emotions, my sorrows and my joys.
I have found my respite, but what about those thousands of other women like me, who are also looking for a change , looking for that one thread to hold on and wanting to do something really productive with their respective lives.
Girls, all I can say is never lose faith, be positive, you are all brave courageous beings who manage so much and are capable of managing much, much more . Just think deeply and find that one thing which gives you immense joy, be it a hobby or a career choice…but just go for it.
Believe, that its just a matter of time when you will see that first ray of sunshine, which will fill your lives with warmth and light.
