Change Is The Only Constant (Part II)

STAY ALERT
In the journey of life, even when you are not certain of your destination, how much you've already traveled, at what speed you're moving, one thing you can be sure of is, the next milestone reads 'change ahead'. Time and again life teaches us that 'change is really the only constant'. The moment we sit relax and think life is under our absolute control, there is a jolt and we sit erect only to quickly adapt ourselves to the changes around us.

Happy to come back home, back to the comfort of my own city, in the proximity of my loving parents, oh and with a decent job. What more could I have asked for from dear life! Life was good. Home made delicious lunch, nice colleagues and a level headed boss at work, mom waiting eagerly at home in the evening, and a doting bf in another city ;) simple and easy life. I was in my comfort zone, living days as they came. Having fun was about spending time with mom, dad and cousins on weekends, to shop after office and eat out with friends. Thus went past 2 whole years of my life and suddenly I found myself standing at the threshold of maidenhood. Marriage was the word buzzing around. On one hand it was excitement and on the other, the terrible feeling of again leaving home.

Days seemed to roll by fast with riots of emotions raging inside my heart every moment, an unending list of pending tasks at work and the so obvious 'bridal mania' in my head. In the snap of a finger and blink of an eye, the wedding day came and went by; and today I'm almost 2 months married, working and managing household in an altogether new city. This is a new lease of life, different, with a lot of responsibility, expectation and happiness of course; someone to share everything with and a city to live new things. This one change is the most sweetest one till date; the only pang that I feel is of staying away from parents.

I'm sure there is a change ready to knock on my door again. Umm... I wonder if Life was a flesh and blood man, how would he manage with this ever changing identity.

changes always make us better, if we have the right attitude.
