“So ask me how many times life has broken me” said she sipping a coffee from a cup kept before her.
“No tell me, how many time you have kicked in and been a phoenix?” I ushered staring into her eyes which spoke fierce yet so well made.
“Wooo, I Like that” She giggled saying “I am so glad I met you. Finally”
“Me too, very much” I replied in Further “Tell me more”
“oh, It took me long 10 years to be where I am, the senior branch manager of one of the leading Insurance company. Sounds nice. Isn’t it? But trust me its not, not at all was easy. I had a terrific start. I was in mess. I was lazy, I never wanted a career, I just wanted to dance and chillout all time and I was already 27”
I raised my eyebrows as she continued “My boyfriend then husband now one day came to me and said, Yeah nahi chalega, if you want to marry me you have to work, thanks to him I found my 1st job which paid me 1.5k .it was nothing but book keeping, it so irritated me that I switched to sales just because they offered me 4 times more pay without having any idea about sales then. I took it, the job where I constantly was on run, I had targets to reach and schedule to miss.. I just worked and worked without thinking much. And here I am today a little proud about what I am”
“And yeah, I want to retire by 40, I have plans further. I want to start a NGO where I can help a children suffering from Autism like my son”
The moist eyes said it all.
I smiled with one word “Inspiring”
She poured in words “it wasn’t really easy.. I had really late start.. I hated my job.. I wanted to quit.. I was doing I absolutely had no idea about.. but I kept going. That’s it”
Realizing she’s no where to stop, I finally asked “what kept you going, what’s the secrete?”
Her eyes sparkled and all she said was “The Secret, Book by Rhonda Byrne”
At times we just need to open the need.
