To all who have been associated with me, “Thank you”.
My gratitude extends to some people for merely being themselves, mentors and idols creating benchmarks that challenge anyone who want to excel. Caving the path and invariably showing me how it is possible to make it big. For walking their direction while I find mine in case I choose not to take theirs. For showing consistency in their positive energy and helping me analyze that as the key to success.
To some others I am grateful for providing opportunities and then genuinely hand-holding while I tried to walk. For letting me do what I knew and teaching me what I did not. For allowing me to behave like a child and giving me the essential space to become an adult. For protecting the innocence in my laughter and tears and pointing out to how I shine when I display my best colors and all the while for reminding me to be me.
Then I also have a third category of people who I am grateful to a little more than the others. For someone like me, who is fond of experiential learning, they allow me to learn from themselves. These are the people who scar their souls to live a life that shows me how not to be. They live like I never want to and show me in real how miserable it is. They ensure that I am not enticed into shortcuts that are easier paths that certainly make way for hell. I genuinely pray for this lot in deepest gratitude that the existence provide them with opportunities to reset their lives.
I know that I have always gained.
