Life is a series of beginnings and endings. We leave one job to start another; we quit cities, countries, or continents for a fresh start; we leave lovers and begin new relationships. What was the last thing you contemplated leaving? What were the pros and cons? Have you made up your mind? What will you choose?
I have not exactly quit the job I currently have but I have applied and gotten through to another process with a slight promotion as well. I had contemplated quitting my job but without a ready substitute to go to or fall back upon that would be considered foolish. It’s not like I have tons of money stashed away that I can rely on. No I don’t and I also have a large credit card debt!
I have wanted to quit my city and move away. I love Cochin but there’s a lot of stuff missing from this place, especially pub culture and a lack of rock music shows. Bangalore has that in plenty and I guess to an extent so do Delhi/Gurgaon and Chennai. My 2 week stay in Gurgaon showed me that I could easily settle in that city – with a lot more money than I am currently making though ofcourse – and make myself a happy life there. I would love to move but at age 40 I think it’s a little too late and I should have taken up chances earlier in my life.
I have left relationships – not the kind you are thinking of but just close relationships – but I do not want to talk about them. They are too recent and fresh in my mind so I am not comfortable yet in blogging about them. Someday though and soon.
