Time to stop and smell the roses!

I started off with gmail. Then yahoo. The hospital server does not allow me to access facebook, which is a good things, since it allows me to actually do more than just play lexulous and read people’s updates.  I then went on to the BikramYoga webiste. It is becoming my second favourite place to be. I have the ABSITE page and 4 tabs on it. J.Crew and Banana Republic fall collection pages, and the New York Times world news section. All running simultaneously on this computer. I also have this wordpress page where I am furiously typing hoping that I wil find some method to my madness.

I did the unthinkable recently. I thought of signing up on Twitter. I felt that I have so many flitting ideas that I should put them down some place, those flitting ideas. But I need structure. I don’t know how much Tweeting would help. So I resign to blogging, something I enjoyed when I started. I am not the same person anymore. I am not in UK, alone with a room and my laptop, a broken heart and dreams of a better future. 

I am in that future I dreamed about. I live in a city I absolutly love and for all the wrong reasons I am sure. I am married to a wonderful human being. I wanted to say husband, but then I haven’t sampled other husbands so I wouldn’t know. As a human being, this husband of mine trumps the other human beings I have encountered. Hmm, there could be an element of bias, but of all the screw ups I have made with character judgement I am really glad about this one.  

Things need to change on the professional front. I just read this post. It has spoken rather loudly to me.  A lot of things do, but then inertia seems rather potent. I don’t know how or when am I going to change things around. I know it is in my hands, aren’t most things? or are they? It is so much easier to resign to failure and find excuses.

I want to be able to find one priority for the day. I want to be able to achieve that one task for that day. Today, I want to stop and be able to smell the roses.

  1. Good Post, many of your feeling I have too. Ten years ago I didn’t even have a PC. Now I’m learning to blog, a place on Yahoo and I check in to “MY COMPUTER WORLD” everyday. But I’m not on Facebook or Twitter yet!

  3. It feels so awesome to know that you have once been in the UK too; somehow it makes me relate to this a bit more. I’m not entirely sure how – you ever get that feeling of familiar, yet unfamiliar?

    I am glad you are touchwood leading a good life. I am curious about the wrong reasons for liking the city – care to share? 🙂

    PS: I actually opened your blog – saw three unread posts, was delighted and I sat down with my current favourite chocolate to read! 😀

    I started blogging when I was in UK. I had a lot of time to myself and I took well to blogging. I know, there are aspects of my life that resonates with yours. I too sometimes on some levels feel a familiar yet an unfamiliar feeling. I think it is the small snippets that we come across and identify with them. Had we to find out the whole truth it would be adifferent story altogether. Why I love New York, I think that deserves a post. It has been in the making for a while now. I will write it some day. I may not always express it, but I am glad you enjoy reading my posts. I am surprised at your patience to read through my life. Thank you.
