I am looking forward to the next few months because I have no idea what it will bring.
But for some reason, I am actually enjoying the feeling of uncertainty.
Of being suspended in a space where I cannot see things too clearly ahead, but I am happy none the less. Of floating around and not having to worry too much. Whichever way the fork in the road leads me now, is fine with me.
I think change is necessary once in a while. At least for me. I enjoy it. I thrive on it. In dealing with new situations. New challenges. Unknown quantities. Unfamiliar faces.
Challenges for the mind, body and soul.
I think the turning point was April 2003, after I came back to Mumbai after a one month trip to South India and Guwahati.
That was when things started looking up. A phone call, the day after I came back. And I could finally see a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel.
And for all friends, colleagues and family who helped – Nikhil, Prabal, Mona, Gauri, my parents; others at work who encouraged – Zaki, Ashok, Nidhi; and of course, you folks who have been visiting my online home for a while, and all the wonderful people I have met through my blog – this is my way of saying thank you 🙂
Change. A new beginning. Yes, it’s definitely time.
