Leap of faith

Here goes nothing. I have finally done it. After so many months of struggling, i've finally gotten the courage to say "Sorry, I am quitting". Now many people may think, "chey, quitting a job what? what's so difficult?". The difficulty is in delivering the message to someone in your family. I have planned this for months .. and it has taken me lotsa sleepless nights to say the Magic Words. I am glad i said it. But I also feel sorry, and very bad that I have to deliver it to my uncle, who really needed the support. But I am doing this for my own sanity, and my own dreams. I decided I can't live my life based on other people's expectations of me anymore. 10 years is more than enough to be living for someone, as opposed to be for myself.

This is a small step for me, but a huge turning point in my life. I am going to pursue my dreams regardless of what others may say. "Be real!!" "Wake up lah" "Stop dreaming lah!". These are words from the people who claim to be logical and realistic. I have been logical and realistic for the past 10 years ... but I am not happy. I am going to walk another path from today onwards. And even if it may not be 100% safe, at least I know I am doing something about my dreams, and working on my own happiness - as opposed to more and more money, and other people's happiness.
