Lately, I’ve been in reflection mode. As the financial year closes on June 30th and I complete another year in my day job, and while I do the maths for my financials, I also tend to take stock of my life and things going on and those that are stuck somewhere.
May be it’s just the Monsoon season that has a profund effect on me which forces me to stop for a while and I’ve been reflecting on a lot of different things… work, love, life, more work, friendship, family, and again more work.
Or may be it’s just the 1st of July which brings back memories that I have not been able to shun and leave behind. There are lots of things about us that change; we make choices and decisions, we grow, we move on – or we don’t or just can’t. There are some things in our life which we can control and some which control us and we are moulded by those events and what is happening around us.
But some things in life never change, and we are forever slaves to those, they are just stuck somewhere, somehow.. and no matter what we do to move on, they are there smiling back at us.
This weekend too I exhanged few emails to get past one such thing that refuses to die down or go away even after years and resolve; but realized that the more things change, the more they stay the same.
