While I remember the days of my engineering classes, they seem like distant echoes in the corridors of time.

The world was a canvas of endless possibilities, not exactly. I had fear and insecurity while waiting to finish my studies.

It promised a different kind of world.

The freedom I was looking for.

While I remember it was painted with vibrant hues of innocence and curiosity.

I had so much fear… of the future. I wanted to travel, I wanted to move.

And I did many times…

I feel free to move on and create whenever I desire.

I make drawing daily. This is my latest digital painting.

While I remember the days when the saying

“Good things come to those who wait”…

held its own weight of wisdom.

It’s clear that the dynamics of our world have evolved considerably since then.

The digital age is an era of rapid change and unprecedented opportunities, where the pace of innovation and creation has reached breathtaking speeds.

In this age of information, the ability to create has never been more accessible to individuals from all walks of life.

The internet, with its vast array of platforms and tools, has democratized creativity, allowing anyone with an idea and a spark of passion to share their creations with the world.

From YouTube content creators to game developers, from self-published authors to aspiring musicians, creative outlets abound for those willing to embrace them.

This democratization of creativity has transformed the traditional notions of success.

While patience and waiting still have their place in certain aspects of life, they are no longer the sole keys to unlocking a brighter future.

Instead, it is the act of creation, the willingness to take an idea and breathe life into it, that has become a potent catalyst for personal and professional growth.
