Time for Some Navel-Gazing

The last couple of months have been way too hectic, been extremely stressful at times and passed before I knew what was happening. Work has simply consumed my life! Not in little nibbles, but in one massive Gargantuan bite.

I have to admit, I've never had to work this hard before. I'm not complaining, just observation. A lot of changes have taken place in my life in the past few months... a young business, marriage and all that both of these entail. I really haven't had too much time for my personal life or time to stop, think and introspect. I enjoy doing that. I'm one of those people who can sit by the ocean, listening to the chatter of the waves by myself for hours thinking of nothing. Just spacing out.

I love 'spacing'. It allows me into a little world of my own. Far away from the 'realities' of life. Spacing is good. It gives my mind room to breathe, clears out the muck albeit temporarily, knocks away my fears and, for a fleeting moment, rids me of my burdensome ego. That's what I love about it.

I want to go back to Rishikesh, spend a month there learning yoga, breathe in some cleaner air and forget myself for sometime.

when i am forced to stop running becos am out of breath, and I do take a pause to catch my breath, I ask myself- why this mad chase!?! and before I can answer myself am running again...don't know yet why. keep rationalizing and saying to myself its the new entrepreneurship thats gobbling me up! But I know am kidding myself...
