When I was a kid my relatives, teachers & many unknowns used to ask me a very similar question. I am sure many of us faced the same. " What you wished to be in life?" I used to spell out what ever suited me every time when it was asked. It was unique most of the time & very different from earlier answer. I was actually clueless about my future. I only knew that I need to survive & earn as fast as possible.
I was born in a rich family but soon we turned out to be very poor by natural process. My parents lost income & all that they had. Looks like very filmy like many Bollywood stories. But trust me it's not at all romantic to be poor & needy. But you become a survivor.
When I got a respectable job I thought this is what I wished. No it was not. I worked hard and became a Manager & a father together. That was when I thought life is as I wished. I was wrong.
I became a head in a farm. I bought a house & car and became father again. We were happy with what I became. I thought it was what I wished to be. But never mind. God has different plans. I went abroad.
I lived there with mostly discomfort being away from family. Bought family there & I got kicked from abroad. I never wished it. But life is all about new wish.
Returned in a ragged condition. Stressed family, stressed kids. No income. But got settled a bit in few months. God has a plan always. We wish something different but God already made a plan before. So try the new life you got. Never wish what you wished to be. Enjoy life as you never wished.
