Across the Dark Tunnel

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers


Burdened by the hopes, stooped under the weight of self-pity she decided to take the plunge for once. Although willing to bring about a change, she was still in a dilemma as she was reluctant to initiate the process of transformation.
A blessing in disguise introduced her to a new world where she began living her dreams again. The house was a workplace and virtual world her reality. 

As she found the earth beneath her feet, things began to fall into place at home too. Keeping faith in herself upright, she made it through the dark tunnel to a beautiful start.

  1. I identify with your character's "challenges". Awareness, subsequent commitment to taking a step forward..persistence. There is a payoff, the proverbial "light at the end of the tunnel".
    Totally enjoyed the metaphors, nicely written. And the attached image? Perfect :)
    Great Six Sentence! Thanks for linking :D

  2. A great metaphor for life - a series of tunnels that we enter and leave in our personal transformations. Jilly, Sugar on the Bee.

  4. That first sentence had me worrying that she was going to jump off the bridge--but no. Just taking the plunge into change and adventure. Well done.

    1. Yes, she could recognize the opportunity and clung to it rather than drown herself in self pity. Welcome to the blog Abhijeet ji.
