“You have to get a job first & then give time to whatever your so called business from hobby.”

“But, mom! Why can’t I do it full time?”

“There is no security.”

“We don’t know yet.”

“You don’t have even a degree for that.”

“Degree doesn’t matter. There are people who have degree, but don’t know how to apply that knowledge practically.”

“It will take time. What will people say if they see you, not yet settled in life & their wards driving their own cars.”

“The crazy fact is, if I try to please everybody, I’ll be lost at some place from where, there will be no coming back.”

  1. It’s always a struggle–choosing what to do in life and whether pleasurable work should trump a “sure thing.” Then again, is there ever a sure thing?

    All my best,

  2. Dear Pratik,

    Ricky Nelson wrote a song years ago called “Garden Party.” One of the lines was “It’s all right now. I’ve learned my lesson well. You see you can’t please everyone so ya gotta please yourself.”



  3. Pratik, It’s always difficult to choose a job in the arts over a more steady income. Most of us need money to live on however, so we have to be sensible. But we can still hold onto our dream and work at that also. We just have to make sure our day job doesn’t take “all” the time. We have to make choices. I’m retired so I have more time now to do what I like. If we’re fortunate we can find a day job that combines creativity with practicality. 🙂 —Susan

  4. Great story and few people have been able to do exactly what they wanted all the time. Even Mark Twain had big ups and big downs and, to me, was the best author ever born – well there was this English fellow years ago, too. Love your story, but please yourself – you will feel better about life! Nan 🙂
