Meghna woke up the next morning to a sensation of pain & the ugly sight of frozen blood on her upper left arm. It was 10AM and a rainy monday morning. Her body would not let her move out of the bed. Her mind dreaded the sight of people. Calls from her boss kept coming in but she could not respond out of laziness & fear. The fear that he would fire her & she would lose the only thing that that distracted her from plunging into a black hole of depression, her job. She forced her body to get ready & went on to the work place. The sound of people typing was not enough to down the noise from her thoughts.She had taken four bathroom breaks already, to cry or smoke. "Please don't do this to me right now, you fucking vile bastards", she said, desperately to the demons in her head. The panic grew as she continued to work. Finally, she picked up her bag & ran out to the terrace of her forty storey office. Her left leg calculated the result of the fall while the right one refused to move. One small step & all this would be over she thought. One small step was it all it would take. Suddenly a storm of memories hit her, her mother holding her in her arms when she was an infant, her dad's tears during her marriage & Tripti's lame jokes. She collapsed & sat down with her legs dangling over a beautiful view of the city.
Picking up her box of fears She swiped off the beads of sweat that creased her brow Just arriving this busy town everything was so new to her For all she knew was the leading in her spirit urging her to desert her home quickly Now she stood on a new soil unsure of the next course of action with the summer sun beating down upon her bun She was about to burst forth in tears exhausted When she heard a voice behind her kindly saying Would there be anything you need ma'am???

Let no one despise your youth, discover purpose and stand out from the crowd. Let passion drive you towards your call. Sacrifice the temporal for the eternal and let Gods love be your root, your base, your discourse, your launching pad and your strength. Then you will never regret allowing Him chart your course. #young, #vision, #purpose, #plunge, #writersnetwork
