Its been a while since I've written about whats going on in MY life. Don't worry, I will not terrorize you with picutres or video clips of me...ha..ha...
Evani's birth has been a life changing experience for me. I have learnt so much in these past 5 months and still constatnly learning something new everday. I feel I have changed in so many ways, some of which is good and some bad. I now seem to have immense patience and have learnt to let go of a lot of little things which would have driven me crazy during pre-evani times. On the other hand I'm an emotional wreck and realize how much I miss the presence of my mother. I constantly feel the need to be hugged and told what a good job I'm doing balancing baby, home and work. I know it sounds silly and is not in my nature to need such sympathy or reassurance -which then again brings me to think I have changed so much. I find myself constatnly thinking of my parents and friends back home and it makes me sad that they cannot be a part of my life right now and watch my little one grow.
On the other hand I have also been feeling that I'm not doing enough things that I'm passionate about -and one day I'll wake up and find myself very old and realize that I've lost a lifetime doing an 8-5 job. 5 days a week, and a bunch of chores on weekends and in the process missed out on these precious times with Evani. Hence, I teamed up with a friend and colleague and we opened our own design studio - Wacker Design Group. I pray we can make this work and I'm able to quit my full-time job soon.
I have also teamed up with my very good friends Soma and Sanhita to start TranceFusion Dance Company. We curretnly have 6 active members and we meet regularly twice a month for practise and hope to organize a fund-raiser end of next year. In the meantime we are open to performing at other events and might also start giving lessons.
I have submerged myself into establising the studio, dance and Evani and that has brought in a lot of positive energy in me. Talking about positive energy, I have also been going to a yoga fit class every Monday and Wednesday during lunch. That has helped me keep fit and control my weight. I only wish I could eat healthy -that is something I have no motivation in. In fact these days I don't give too much thought or time to food - which might be the reason my eating habits are detoriating.
I guess that gives a detailed snapshot into my life and activities which I have not been able to share with many of you in the recent times. I think I should also mention that my best friend, Sapto (the one who is in Canada) has been a pillar of strength to me all along and I wouldn't have been able to do anything without her love and support. I am also very thankful to my brother who is always there for me and who means the world to me. I wish I was able to spend more time with him.
