Ambition - "What you want to achieve and at the cost of which you want to achieve it!"
My contentment is sometimes mistaken for lack of ambition. The fact that I do not want to be the next Ambani seems incredulous to some. I am repeatedly asked - 'Dont you want a huge house with an even bigger garden? Or long cars to drive in? To travel the world or to buy masterpieces?" And what a strange question this is.
Ofcoure I want all that, who wouldn't? But I dont want it at the cost of other things that are more important to me - like peace of mind, like time to take an evening walk or play with my children when they come back from school. I rather drive a smaller car and take dance lessons than drive a BMW to go to work 50Kms away. I see no point in existing that way! And you know what? I am not the only one who feels this way....most of us want this peaceful life. But society conditions us such that wanting the simple things in life are seen as a sign of weakness...as lack of drive in life.
So then, how can I blame someone for thinking of me as one without the will to succeed? After all, the only problem is that our definitions of success are poles apart!
She writes from the heart, says what she feels, and lives to explore. Alone in a crowd and often misunderstood, she's a nomad who finds home wherever she roams and immeasurable joy in the colours of the sunset sky. You'll find her dining alone with a book, on a table for one. This is her story.
