“I quit my Post Graduation in January 2019, without having any idea what I was going to do with my life next. Almost everyone I know, was not supportive of my decision and told me I was making the biggest mistake of my life. I had always been an above average student and did well in my exams both in school as well as in college. I had my mind fixed on corporate life and a stable job for a long time. However, four months into post-graduation, I realised that I didn’t fit in there. I dreaded every minute of it and was found being sad or complaining almost all the times.
Back in school, my dad always used to tell me, “Megha having a goal for a stable job and income is good, but its also important to keep your passion alive and to listen to your heart every once in a while.” I never really listened to him though. I was too focused on getting a ‘good’ job. For almost two months after I quit my PG, I was home all lost without any direction.
Some days I would spend hours researching on what I wanted to do next and some days I would just fight getting up from my bed. I was slowly losing all hope in myself. Guilt started taking over me and my self-esteem was at its lowest. But you know what they say, there is always a morning after the dawn. I found an interesting course in Neuro Linguistic Programming [NLP] in Delhi. I soon decided to travel there and the days spent there are truly the best I have experienced yet.
I loved what I was learning. When I came back, I started learning and exploring Intuitive Sciences. I have loved dancing for as long as I remember and have been trained in different styles. I slowly started taking up wedding choreography projects along with my friend. Today I am an NLP Master Practitioner, Advanced Life Coach and I work as a full time Tarot and Angel card reader and as a Wedding Choreographer. I love every bit of what I do and I am also able to pay my bills. I have realised that sometimes it’s good that things don’t go the way we had initially planned.
Sometimes getting lost, helps us in finding new direction. Its just so important for parents to give their children time to explore. To identify what they are truly meant for. To understand how they want to give back to the ones around them. I still vividly remember the day I decided to quit my PG, my dad had told me “You will soon find your way.” I think we all can. We just need to gather a little courage to look for it and find the right people to associate with.”
