what I thought, what I got…

if I try to remember the time when I was the small girl with lots of dreams of ruling the world, of doing whatever I want, of living life just how they show in movies. I always wanted to move out and live on my own, thanks to these tv series and movies, I always thought my life will be exactly how they show it and, to be honest, I was highly influenced by these movies.

But there is always a big difference between what we think and what we get. Same happened to me. I always thought that moving to big cities would be glamourous but what I got was homesickness, I never realised that I will badly miss my place, my home, my parents.

I was now out of my comfort zone. There was no one to make me dinner when I get back from work, I missed my family when I needed somebody to talk. I started valuing little luxuries of life like morning tea, spending time with loved one.

yes I faced loanliness, yes sometimes were difficult. For me it was nothing like what I thought about  moving to big city.

But today when I look back, I realise my experience was nothing like what they show in movies but still I am better person today.

Now I feel like living aloan made me a brave person, I started respecting everyone who love me and I started respecting time. Now I understand that everything have cost and nothing is free apart from love and care which we get from people who love us.

I found my family in my friends who were there for me when I needed them. I understood what is good and what is not. I became sorted person, now I can handle my problems without cribbing about it. I explored myself, I introspected which made me mature and better person. Today I know smiling is important  and also its infectious and I try to be a carrier.

Now I know that life is not complicated. Yes even today I miss my home town, my place, my carefree life there but living aloan made me discover my own better version. This is how I can say it was totally different what I thought and What I got.

Today for me luxuries are not important but what is important for me is  peace of mind and satisfaction at the end of the day.

  1. Nicely stated that what we think is not always what we got, but somehow what we got makes the person whom we are. Good work.
