I was flipping my diary pages back to 2009 where I found a “surprising” prominent name on almost every page. The person who motivated me, who showed me my dreams and who told me my goals. This person not only pointed out these things but accompanied me till I achieved them. This person is the one who used to fight with me at silly matters. We acted as “Tom and Jerry” most of the time running after one another, teasing and irritating.
When I was mounting the obstacles to achieve my goal, this person gave me space to mingle with others and silently remained at the back patting my shoulder, giving me green signals and encouraging me to move forward. And today when I was whining how I got the title, he AGAIN played his part and reminded me of my goal “to be recognized as an official writer” which I proved to be.
Sometimes we forget to acknowledge those people who are always by our side supporting and motivating. We indulge in those people who simply tell us the address to reach a destination and leave rest on us to solve out. These are the people that help you reach the moon and then throw you over with a bang!!!
Today people ask my name and the next thing they ask is “The writer?” This was the dream I saw 3 years back and now this is the time I proudly say “Yes! Wafa Tariq- The Writer”
Thank you Abdullah bhai! 🙂
