There is no turning back. I can only look ahead and move forward.
I had to make the hardest decision of my life some time last week. I never had to think about something similar before so I didn’t know what to do. I had to consult a lot of people whose opinions I value a lot. In the end I had to be practical and choose the one that can provide more personal growth.
There were a lot of considerations before I finally arrived at a decision. I had to consider my current situation, my pride, the benefits, other people, and a whole lot more. I had sleepless nights. I prayed for divine intervention. And then nearing my deadline, I awoke with a decision. I felt better that now I have made up my mind. And then I talked to my aunt. Her answer was very practical and it questioned my decision - again. I had a change of heart. She was right. My pride won’t bring more food to the table. But an increase in the money I take home will.
I still have qualms if I made the right decision or not. I was told by a teacher before that one should not chase after money. Just do what you love to do and money will follow. It seemed like a very wise and inspirational quote at the time. I was young and did not have many responsibilities on my plate. Now that I am older, while I still want to believe that I should not go after money, I have to be practical. I am not getting any younger and in 2-3 years, I will have my own family. My pride will not be able to give my family and I a comfortable life. Money will.
And besides, how many people get to be offered this kind of opportunity? I may not have this knocking on my door in the future. Why not grab it while it’s there?
