Life is not a linear journey. It is a series of twists and turns, ups and downs, joys and sorrows. Life is unpredictable and surprising. Life is what you make of it.

Yamuna was a young girl who dreamed of becoming a writer. She loved reading books and creating stories in her imagination. She wanted to share her stories with the world and inspire others with her words.She worked hard in school and college, honing her writing skills and learning from her teachers and peers. She applied to various publishers and magazines, hoping to get her work published. She faced many rejections and criticisms, but she never gave up. She believed in herself and her passion.

One day, she received an email from a famous publisher. They liked one of her stories and wanted to publish it in their anthology. They also offered her a contract for a novel. Anna was overjoyed. She felt like she had achieved her dream.

She started working on her novel, pouring her heart and soul into it. She spent hours in front of her laptop, typing away. She ignored her friends and family, thinking that they would understand. She thought that nothing else mattered but her work. She finished her novel and sent it to the publisher. They loved it and praised her for her talent. They told her that it would be a bestseller. Anna was ecstatic. She felt like she had reached the peak of her success.

She waited for the launch date of her novel, expecting to receive fame and fortune. She imagined signing autographs, giving interviews, receiving awards. She thought that this would make her happy, But when the day came, she realized that she was wrong. Her novel sold well, but it did not bring her the satisfaction she hoped for. She felt empty and lonely. She realized that she had neglected the people who mattered the most to her. She realized that she had missed out on the simple joys of life.

She wished she could go back in time and change things. But it was too late. We must and should remember everyday that Life is not a linear journey.
