Potpourri of My Life!

I’m writing this because someone asked me how I was feeling and I realized I was feeling all this at the same time. Trust human beings to complicate the most simplest of simple questions.

I’m happy!

I’m getting to do something that I’ve always wanted and it all happened by luck. Speak about being at the right place at the right time.

I’m (slightly) worried!

I’ve been trying to do something for a while, despite my best efforts and despite taking help from an expert I’m not able to make much progress. Giving up seems easier and the thought has occurred to me many times, but somehow I’m pushing myself to keep going. I celebrate even the smallest achievements but I’m not sure when I’ll give it up. So tough to stay motivated when you don’t see results. I’m slightly worried!

I’m proud!

Yes, I’m proud of myself (not haughty). I completed my 4th 10k run at the Dream Runners Half Marathon 2015. Not the best run, but enjoyed running it. I think I’ll run again just for the medal. Aren’t they getting fancier day by day! πŸ™‚

I’m nostalgic!

I’ve been doing something for 2 years. At a high-level it’s the same routine, but at a low-level the work involved was interesting and not monotonous. Moreover it took me to the most amazing work location one could’ve asked for. And now things are changing. I’ll miss the people and the comforts of the workplace. I felt so comfortable, the open spaces made me feel at peace. Didn’t they rightly say that life begins at the end of your comfort zone. Sigh!

I’m excited

After years of travelling to school, college and office by vans and buses, I finally finally finally get to ride to work. Earlier I used to spend almost 4 hours in travel, and now it’ll be reduced to about 1.5 hours. As Ross said, β€˜I’ve been given the gift of time’. I feel like I have more time now. I’m beginning to like this already.

Β I wanted to include a few more things, but they weren’t as overpowering as these.

Β Anyway, how are you feeling?

  1. Glad to know everything is pretty good. Especially the commute. Ask me about it. I commute 62 miles a day (only to work), leave the rest I drive for kids classes etc..And whatever is that you are trying for, keep going. May be someday you will reach there even though you are taking baby steps. good luck!

  2. You are right, we do have many emotions at any point of time. Right now, it's happiness and worry. Happiness, as I just posted something and worry of what to cook for dinner. πŸ˜›

  3. Fortunately, I never had to commute for more than an hour ever. Even my college was 30 minutes drive. But when I was working, I used to drive my bike for many KMs to meet clients. But I loved those rides, as it was out of the rush hour, and the road was mine to play πŸ™‚

  7. Oh yes, our minds keep running in different directions and that makes us experience so many emotions at the same time. I am satisfied with a work that went off well and panicking that I have SO much to do before I leave for work related travel tomorrow. Congratulations on your achievements and saving on the commute time is a BIG thumbs up!!
