"If I gave you a choice to have anything under the world, what would you want?"
Someone asked me that question today and honestly, for a very minute second, my mind went blank. I know I want a lot of things, I dream in a very super sized manner and I rarely keep my toes grounded. Like I always say, I dream of the fairy tale life. Many people have told me that reality sucks and that, quoted, "you have not seen the REAL world". I used to mutter under my breath every time someone told me that.
And then, I went to work. I wouldn't say that stepping into a new world, even if it was just as a cashier showed me what "the real world" is. I learnt a lot. New lessons, new people, new experiences. I felt like a super star the day I left work. So proud of myself and just so amazed at how I survived in a place that was nothing like me. (Refer to blog post "37 days of a very different life-My own working experience")
Problem is, like I said, I don't keep my foot grounded and surprisingly, coming from a person that has been through a lot in life, I don't intend to change it. I like having a positive attitude about everything. I like the thrill of not knowing what tomorrow would bring into my life and I love being happy with whatever that I have. I never desire for a lavish life. I am content with the way my life is working right now. I have been bruised, battered and scared, but there is just one thing that no one or experiences has touched before and that is my soul. I still have a soul that smiles at the toughest adversity. Though my eyes fill with tears and my heart cringes with every blow, my soul still stays strong.
I am not saying that you can throw me in a mud pit and I would find a way out. I am just saying that while I am in that mud pit, I would not give up in finding a way out. Like they always say, if you dare dream, you have to dare wake up and chase that dream. I dream big and hence the chase is big too. It might take me a million years to finally look back at my life and say that I have everything that I want but I would do it. Notice how even now I have the attitude that I would make it to a million years? There right there is my soul speaking, one that is never influenced with the trials and tribulations of life.
So, what was my answer then? Well, I listed a few things that I wanted but then again, there is no limitations to my list because I am living that life right now. Waking up to the barks of Ruby and Dino, looking at a small smile in the faces of my parents, arguing over clothes and many others with my sister, gossiping with cousins, watching the rain hit Earth, loving myself each day for being a Vegetarian, laughing with friends, dreaming about a prince charming, being nice to strangers and many more is what that truly keeps me happy. Like I said, I am a simple girl who lives in a fairy tale land and wants nothing much from this world. I am happy. Very happy. And right now, money cannot buy or compare to this happiness.
