I woke up all of a sudden, the very first thought coming to my mind is how long has it been since the alarm went off. Second thought that crossed my mind is “Did I wake up too late?”. I generally try to wake up between 5 AM to 7 AM depending on the time I go to sleep. I picked up the phone-it’s around 6:13 AM — 17 minutes earlier than the time my alarm was supposed to go off. While I’m writing this, I just realized, my alarm never did go off! I need to check if I set up the alarm at the correct time or not.
As I lay on bed thinking about the reason I woke up without an alarm, the answer came in the form of a building pressure in my bladder. While my sleepiness urged me to fight off the urge to go to the loo, the combined factor of rising pressure and remembering of deciding to live a disciplined life urged to wake up.
Upon re-entering my room, I immediately returned to my cosy bed but instead of going back to sleep, my thoughts lingered upon a few things-career decisions being the primary placeholder in my mind. I’ve always loved writing-writing stories, letters, well-structured emails, short stories and all things that can be written. The very thought of becoming a writer has always been in the back of my mind-I have always wanted to live a life creating stories, wonderful worlds and characters people can get lost into, get inspired and feel happy about. Yet my approach towards this career decision has, until recent times, been like this-it’s a passion I want to work upon, creating stories for generations to come yet I always perceived this as a hobby I can fall back into after a day of work. With passing time and turn of events, I now see things differently-our time is limited on Earth and down the line I do not want to look back and regret for things I wanted to do and never did. I want to pursue my passion with my full focus and energy-this very blog is my first step towards committing myself to becoming a better writer each day.
While my mind buzzes with more thoughts that has since crossed my mind from the moment I opened my eyes till now, with an intent to keep the blog manageable for bot you and me, I hereby wrap up my first blog.
Thank you for taking your time to read my journey.
See you tomorrow!
