Logged in out of blue after like forever to discover that it’s been EXACTLY 4 years TODAY I started this blog. What a coincidence!!
Happy Anniversary dear blog!!!
Shifting focus to me now, here is all the scoop on what I’m up to.
The saying “The path to wisdom is age” has never been truer than it is today if I take liberty to make amendments replacing age with marriage. In to my late twenties now ,I’m not saying that I’m a wise owl but I’m also not the person I used to be when I started this blog.
Continuing from last post,let’s flashback to Jan 16’. I (had to) quit my first job of five years one month before I was to get married. Post wedding and the honeymoon in Feb, life was back to normal…for my brand new husband. As for me, even before the ‘newly married’ excitement wore off, the one and only thing on my mind was to get a goddamn JOB. Wiping dust off my six year old Naukri profile, I updated to one that was more attractive than my matrimonial profile. I never heard from the organization where I gave my first interview but one month and another interview later I took up the offer for reasons more than being desperate for a job (mainly the brand name). Also unlike the horrible fixed timings style of my previous organization, coming home at 5 sounded like a dream especially in a city infamous for its traffic. I was happy to be following a routine with a job and super supportive in-laws. But then it was “Life is like a box of chocolate, you never know what you’re going to get” time. It was time for shockers and domestic issues that I never thought could exist in a married woman’s life. Also couple of months into the job, the travel started to take a toll on me.After recurring heartbreaks and drama on both sides, a decision was made that was about to change my life for better in many ways which FINALLY materialized after more drama.
Soon we were approaching a milestone that was our first wedding Anniversary which was in February and the second best decision(first was to get married) we made as a couple was to take off on an Island vacation, easily the best days of this year so far. I know it’s too cliché to say this but I’ve learnt a great deal. We fought like no other, made-up, played the blame game, took time to understand each other, reflect on our relationship so far then. With what I’ve learnt in this one year of marriage, I have my own Life and Marriage 101 to which I refer every now and then and hope to add to it in years to come.
Back from the vacation meant back to reality. Now I don’t know about the man of my all solutions but I really was on verge of regretting the decision we made earlier that was supposed to make our life easy. This was my best “between the devil and the deep sea” moment. Holy Moly! Things that life can throw your way when you expect the least. Apart from dealing with unreasonable behavior around me I had my own emotions to deal with alone. During this time I also realized what “getting on nerves” LITERALLY means. Like literally!! This was also the time when we were in process of making another life changing decision that required lot of our time and efforts, mostly the husbands’. I cannot explain in words how crucial this decision was for my husband for it was a make or break situation. Looking back I feel guilty for not understanding certain situations without being talked to about. I love and respect the man I married not because he’s walked on egg shells for the sake of our relationship, also not because he made some decisions that put “us” before his career but because he’s always made efforts to understand make the best balance that he could of any situation. Then the waiting game begun. After extreme bouts of suspense, thriller, excitement and drama, some good news arrived. (Nope! This is not about a baby).All this happened very
fast slow between March to August.
September was the month where I could really feel myself breathing and sinking in the reality. Right now, I have my fingers crossed for something very important that I’m expecting in couple of weeks from now. I have hopes and dreams for coming months closing on 17’ and the next year. I wish to get a job where I can utilize my full potential and get what I deserve (this is not on my resume…lol) and I need not worry about other things coz I know everything else will be taken care of!
