Back to the grind

Two reasons I stopped the prompt challenge that I had taken up on my blog. The first being, I felt I would be repeating myself in the subsequent posts that I was supposed to write. Secondly, I got a twenty day break between my job change and it was completely eaten up taking care of the toddler, preparing for festivals, cleaning up after them and attending some more interviews. Time just flew and the twenty days seemed like just two.

Now, I am back to the grind, an even tougher one. This time, all of first week was spent with the little voices in my head, taking a jab at each other. One saying “What the hell were you thinking, when you left that job??!!” and the other saying “Hold on, lets give this some time and see how it shapes up.” So that’s what I am doing right now, waiting to see how things work out. Battling against the famous Bengaluru’s ORR traffic, spending my precious 5 hours in commute.

Beginnings are always difficult. The first week was tough. My back and legs were aching like crazy by the time it was Saturday and I dozed off with my son at 10 PM, for the first time in a long while. I was thankful that our weekend was free and not packed with things to be attended to.

While I am settling into this new phase, how have you been?

  3. Arch, ella sari hogutte Guru. Else, nothing is so big or important that you cannot say no – while you are at it, I know you will give your best and you will also know when not to 🙂 I wish you the best always, I hope these 5 hour commutes will give you some opportunity to read or knit or do something that wasn’t possible before or even sleep!

      Thanks Piyu, for those comforting words. 🙂 Yeah it is the knit/read/sleep that I can get done, during commute that makes it slightly bearable.
