Transition times

My life has been always neatly divided into phases. There was school, college, Wipro, MBA so far and now my married phase is about to begin. But I think its those in between transition times that are the hardest to define and get through. Looking back now I think they were what helped to adjust from one phase to another and changed something inside me. Helped me grow up from a school going child to one supposedly ready to face the challenges and sudden independence in college. And then from an immature college student to an excited then bored office goer.
I am in a transition time right now, and I have the feeling of having lost my moorings, of being afloat and patiently waiting to reach somewhere, to start the next phase. I can already feel the time slipping away, the time I want to cling onto and remember - as a spoilt grandchild, as an independent woman, as a daughter with the freedom to make her own decisions, as a child who doesn’t have to think about what others might think of her actions. Time to just sit at home and while the hours away, reading a book or sleeping or just doing nothing without feeling guilty about it. This is one of the most precious times to me and i intend (hopefully) to use it well.

Young lady.. take it from an old man... there is no 'somewhere' to be reached in life.

today is that day, you were dreaming about in yesterdays....

enjoy 'it' in your warmly cold and rainy country :-))))

when a ship has sighted land, its sailors get restless first, then dream of land, and there settles a calm among the people. the waves put them to a comfortable amble. the sailing is for the time being. the future looks as green as the land in sight. all the best.
