The Edge of the World
Sneha clasped her hands together tightly to quell the trembling of her fingers. Taking several deep breaths, she wiped the sweat off her forehead. Who or what had taken over her perky, self confident persona? It was becoming impossible to identify with the bumbling jangle of nerves she had suddenly turned into. Agreed today was crucial for her. This moment felt as if she was about to jump off the edge of the world. Should she take a leap into the unknown and leave everything behind to pursue her dream of becoming an entrepreneur? Or was it wiser to stay back and remain in the comfort of a safe and secure life with a paycheck guaranteed at the end of every month?
Thinking back to the time she was a little child she remembered her grandfather’s words, “Little pet, never fear anything, even the moment you feel you are standing on the edge of the world, for it is not the edge but a ledge of new opportunities and possibilities”. Taking inspiration from those words she felt the trepidation leave her heart. Fear was replaced by joyous excitement. Her dream was about to come true. Agreed there would be countless obstacles along the way. So what! Nothing worth pursing ever came easy in any case. She didn't want to die wishing that she had been more courageous. It was finally time for her to banish all her doubts about the future and take a leap of faith off the ledge of the world.
