I believe in angels, I truly do, and I always have…
Else how is it possible that your dreams suddenly turn into a reality, without you even blinking an eye for it?
Angels move their magic wand, and change your life in a moment. For me, any person who does a good deed is an angel, and I feel blessed to have quite a few angels in my life…
One such angel in my life is Sona… I met her at my job in Delhi… After completing MCA, I had worked as a software engineer in Jaipur for some time, and was now working as a networking expert in Delhi, but somehow in my heart I always wanted to be a writer, who would need just a pen and a piece of paper to feel happy. Though, I must admit that my laptop has filled that space now!
I was looking for a job change, and so was she. But, I had given up, as every other company wanted me to keep writing codes and fixing their networks, and I had succumbed to my fate. Till one fine day, when she told about a job opening for a content writer in Noida, and commanded me to pack my bags, and go with her for an interview!
I was excited and nervous at the same time. I had an excellent opportunity ahead, one that I was dreaming of for a long time, but I was not sure whether to give it a shot or not… I was scared as hell. What if I don’t make it, after all, it was my long cherished dream, and one failed interview would shatter it in no time.
But, Sona’s words gave me strength, “What if we don’t make it? Anyways, we are not doing anything that we love right now; let’s give a shot to something that we really want to do.” Needless to say, we went, cracked the interview, and got the offer letter, the same day (We are genius, and I knew it!). The salary was much less compared to what I was getting, but I jumped at the offer, as nothing materialistic could stop me from pursuing my dreams, thankfully my family supported me in my cost cutting decision. Pun intended!
Sona, I wanted to write this since 2009, and now, after almost 5 years, here I am… I always wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart, as if it were not you, I would still be doing a job that I was not interested in, and would have never got the courage to follow my heart. You are an angel who changed the course of my life, and I can’t thank you enough.
I believe that I became successful the day Sona pushed me for that job interview, and I discovered the joy of writing. I haven’t looked back ever since. I am not successful because I have (or don’t have) money, these things don’t count anyway. I feel satisfied, as I get a great pleasure penning down my thoughts, hoping it would encourage someone else to pursue his/her dreams, and make big in life.
My angel changed my life, and now I want to become that angel for someone! Look for signs; recognize good people when they walk into your life, as you never know; your angel might be round the corner!
But, don’t just wait for others or luck to do you a favor. Make your good deeds count, help others, look for inspiration and inspire a few, read good books and preach a little.
Share a little, care a little, this is all what it takes to make life better. Believe in angels, and become one too!
Love and live,
