“The horizon leans forward, offering you space to place new steps of change” ~ Maya Angelou
In our life we have aspirations and we have reality. Aspirations – high as the sky –are full of energy, full of positivity, full of hope. On contrary, there is reality with a “take what comes your way attitude” – very calculative, very controlled, very rigid.
.. And this chase of making our aspirations meet reality is called LIFE – OUR HORIZON! 🙂
Now you might think of many other metaphors used for life and might wonder why I chose it to be called Horizon. Well, there is a reason – something I can relate to my own life!
The horizon keeps moving ahead the nearer we go, and so does the reality. There is never an end to both; there is never a final destination to both! 🙂
My life has been a journey reaching this horizon and every time I thought I was just there, it moved far again – every time leaving something behind – good and bad – adding milestones to life!
This month, 8 years ago – I started my professional life. Long way! It feels great and satisfied that I could make my life something that I aspired!
It started with an aspiration to gift a home to my parents and thanks to my luck that supported it well to turn it a reality. It was tough, challenging and needed a lot of hard work. However, as it’s said – “where there is a will, there is a way”!
It felt like touching the sky when this aspiration became a part of my real life! The moment of handing keys to my parents and the love and pride in their shining eyes is still the most special moment of my life – the first horizon of my life! 🙂
Well, as I said, there is no end to this. Aspirations – small and big kept me moving. Kept me busy converting them to reality. One after the other, the journey towards horizon continued..
New people, new companies, new designations, new geographies, new trips, new salary figures;) – all a part of this journey!
Today, I am satisfied of what I am doing, what I have done so far. Still I see that horizon that I want to reach – to become a person who inspires others, who is looked up with respect, who is known for good things, who is taken as an example.
I am travelling towards it – with a dream to make it a reality!

Though one may never reach the horizon, it is important to remember that “the journey is the reward”.
