100 word fiction: Steps of Life

Steps of Life

PHOTO PROMPT – Copyright -Björn Rudberg

“Ron, Life is not easy. You need money for happiness.”

Though not very academically gifted, Ron was attracted to various forms of creative expression. He loved theater so much so that he dropped out of college midway and joined a theater group to further his interest. While blogging started as a pastime, he slowly but surely developed himself into a thought leader on various topics. And finally, acting in movies was the icing on the cake.

As he reminisced his father’s words, he couldn’t help but smile. He had dared to climb the steps of life and follow his dreams.

Written for the photo prompt and you can read the other entries here.
