So I am changing

A shout out to the friend who asked me to stay young and relevant with the changing times… It got me contemplating and see, I took your advice seriously . My blog post has a new look to start with!

So, as the usual story goes, my climb up the hill, with greys spilling out n shining through on the outside of the head as well, was accompanied with lots of cliches that I believed in : -I am what I am… My thoughts make me who I am, Be who you are and say what you feel, You are the only you God made… I don’t fit into stereotypes… and what not.

So I carved myself this unique space and felt pretty good morning and evening…within my cocooned space, writing 2 minutes blogs and practising my own Zen, while the world continued ahead, alive and swinging! Dear Lord , was I aiming to spend the rest of life retreating to the Himalayas and meditating or what?!πŸ€”

Don’t tell me, you don’t live by them- cliches that descend upon us and how we start identifying with them I mean! One oft repeated one is “change is constant”. Such an oxymoronish phrase! They have a whole vertical dedicated to change management where I work 😁

After a long and disturbing skirmish in my mind, I settled down to the idea of changing to be relevant. It’s quite an uphill task, from where I am at the moment on the hill ! Who needs my changed self? I look around questioningly, but there is no one waiting to answer… They have gone past the next corner ! Probably everyone I come across… My family, friends, colleagues, the people I interact with and also the society I belong to- the writing was clear on the wall,” you need to increase your pace and catch up. In a nutshell, “change“”

New skills, a new look, new approach to problem solving and even a new diet, all towards staying relevant to last me some time till I go in for another overhaul, dear readers. Amidst all this swashbuckling, a new vigour to live longer, to enjoy my time on this beautiful Earth and treat everyone lovingly has taken root. Try it, this Change; it jolts you out of your comfort zone but it gives you an impetus to revamp and live on meaningfully.

  1. Sush dear ❀ your call for change came right in mind to meet mine ❀ . I've already acknowledged the fact that my down hill journey had begun conforming to the climbing numbers on my calendar! Well, I have no idea what hit me deep…the doc's persistent attempts to make me see reason or the 'heal' offered by the Amura team… well, I just dived in and decided to climb a bit more rather than give in! n into Day 5, I get to read this! double inspired ❀ As always, I love your write ups ❀ n I love this new look ❀

    1. Thank you so much for reading and liking this post dear Sony, your words brought so much joy. You said it right, its a rollercoaster!! Best part of it all, we realise that we are sitting on one , much too late in life …then, people like me start writing blogposts and some start making ‘meaning of life’ videos πŸ˜‚
      Jokes aside, its really our choice…

  5. Lovely write up!

    The message to change comes across so beautifully during the fall. I love it when the leaves teach us to let go and embrace change.

    Sushmita, I have been dwelling on a post with the theme of Carving out time. Will share when it’s ready. πŸ™‚
