I knew my life was n’t just about finding a husband and popping out a few kids --------------------------------------- I wanted a career, a life without being judged. I worked hard for my Masters; I was leaving home at 6.30 am and was literally travelling 3 hours at least 4 days a week, I was doing a student programming job 20 hours a week so I can gain some more knowledge and get extra to spend on travelling.
I knew my hard work will pay off. I was worried if I will land a job right after my Masters? Again, my hubby said “what are you worried about? you will land a far better job and I know this don’t worry”. He knew my love for art and writing so he suggested rather than thinking absurd why don’t I start blogging and painting?
There were many things we adopted after living with each other; he became sporty unlike before and I became bit mindful before taking decisions 😊
I had been painting, writing and creating my daily diaries during times of travel, seeking adventures, moments of homesickness, managing a whole new independent life. The day came when my graduation date was announced, and in parallel I was applying for jobs and randomly went in a job-fair without realizing it will turn into a happiest moment of my life. I was interviewed for a multinational as a technical consultant and within a week I received my job offer before graduating. My trust in hard work, God and fate became more firmer, the more I trusted myself, the less I compare myself to others and the more contented I became.
In my opinion having a spouse who is highly conscientious increases your chances of success in career and overall life. After a good harmony in our lives we became parents after 6 years of marriage (that’s another story how he handled this whole thing lol) and now we have a 5 years old son.
It’s been 12 years of togetherness this year and we have flaws, we have fights, we have difference of opinion but by the end of the day we know we are on the same team not opposing team.
We should seek for a relationship where we grow together, not where the other half is afraid to see you shine. If you both work together, you can chase your dreams together. - 5 minutes ago
