Yes, the mistake of quitting my job and pursuing freelance writing. It has turned out to be blessing to me. To be a freelance writer is tough when money doesn’t come. You have to let go of some expenses.  But, you start valuing time and get disciplined. It was a decision that was guided by my heart. Like all decisions of my life have been.

I also get to write stuff that I love writing. I choose my projects but, in a job you got to write everything that gets on your table. And journalism is terrible. Cause journalists seem to be a mouthpiece of the companies that own them.
