Exciting Times!

I've really missed writing here for a while. It's been, mainly, because I've been busy getting my fledgling company off the ground. Hiring people, getting the website up, trying to get business... the works.

It's been excellent learning. Irrespective of how it eventually ends up, I'm so so soooo glad I've taken the chance to pursue my dream. There seems to be a romance to life now. I can feel the idealism and belief, dormant for so long, creeping back into my life. There's no better feeling than stepping out of my comfort zone and into the realm of the unknown.

Everyday begins with hopes or recovering from the previous day's disappointments. It's a roller-coaster. I guess it teaches you to enjoy life for what it is, not what you want it to be.

If there's one lesson I've learnt in these past few weeks, it's this, don't take anything for granted. The new hire who says he'll join in 3 days but doesn't turn up, the potential client who promises you a lot but comes up with nothing... the list is endless. I'm not being cynical here, just realistic. There's many a slip betwixt the cup and the lip. :)

The more I think about it, the more I feel that we're little players in this humungous play of destiny. No matter how much we may want something and work hard for it, if it isn't in your destiny, there's really nothing you can do about it. I think it's acceptance that has taught me to love life as it is.

It's a big change from where I was four years ago, but I think it's a change for the better.

Our lives are going on parallel tracks!!:) When we get out of large iconic companies our visiting cards and fancy designation's do all the talking. And we kinda get used to it. And then we plunge bravely into a new world whr our new identity has to work really hard and many times with tenacity to score a wee bit, and we will score, never have a doubt on that! Time will tell where we go, however have no doubt this new bread and butter we earn will be heavenly in times to come. I am certain of that:) - because- our destinies are intertwined to our calling in life. Which is why we quit the cushy jobs to start anew in new worlds and new ways. So go ahead and have tons of patience and loadsa has just begun:)
