A Flash Back into the Year 2016

A flash back into the year of 2016 reveals a life of potpourri of extreme of emotions. The first half of the year was filled with mundane routine, juggling between personal and professional errands. After a lot of efforts of impulsive outbursts of giving up and compromising moments, abandoning the ambience of uncomfortableness and crushing of the pulse of creativity, I quit my job. Post the decision, life blessed me with an energizing vacation to Leh-Ladak.

The second half of the year, fused the stay at home syndrome, accompanied by persistent efforts to get a new job as per my criteria. However, life threw unexpected scenarios, powered by an emotionally draining experience of rejection. I reached the tipping point of explosion, and choose to end the traumatic process of earning a sustainable job. I determined to set up my own working freelance set up and make a living, with the subject knowledge and honed professional skills.

With extortionate fear and anxiety about the life of the freelancer, writeathon was the first step towards the uncertain path. Of all the months, November 2016 was the important and challenging month. The completion of the 30 day Writeathon (continuous blogging everyday) without any interruption was the remarkable achievement as a freelance writer. It was undoubtedly the greatest reinforcement to myself about the thought of the possibility of achieving a living and gaining a job satisfaction in the freelancing career.
