Daily Prompts: If You Leave

pad2015-s1.png (308×60)

Life is a series of beginnings and endings.We leave one job to start another,we quit cities,countries or continents for a fresh start; we leave lovers and begin new relationships. What was the last thing you contemplated on leaving? What were the pros and cons? Have you made up your mind? What will you choose?

It seems to be the history of our life, we leave one city to go to another for jobs, education,and better life.

I’ve gone through all of these, now I feel I’ve accomplished everything. I needed a secure place to settle down. The decision was made jointly by my husband and I.

We realized our life of roaming around like a gypsy was over, we needed some stability. Our children were growing up, we needed to live in a city where higher studies was available for them. We’ve done the best we could, our kids were happy to be in a place where there was more than a supermarket. There were other means of entertainment.

We did not want our kids to study all day and sleep all night. As we are aware: “All work no play makes Jack a dull boy.”

We didn’t forget all the fingers in our hand are not the same size, likewise all our children will not do well in studies.

We were confronted with this problem, we had to be contented, knowing we did our best.

Then there was the subject of health, we needed to be in a city, where there were facilities to cope with any kind of health issue.

We were satisfied knowing the physicians were capable of handling major health issues.

We’ve therefore chosen to live in a city where everything is available, i.e, good schools, awesome restaurants, capable health care people and an efficient means of transportation!
