I am finally going to leave home at the crack of dawn tomorrow. Agreed – it comes a few years late compared to my friends who did their first degree from other cities. Nevertheless, the day has come. I am stoked. It is a promotion and an enhanced job role that is taking me to a different city.
I am excited to tackle all the challenges that come my way. Honestly, I can’t wait.
I can’t wait to see the house that I shall turn into a home.
But, then again, I am sad, for I am leaving family and love behind. That is a void that no big city or professional success can fill. The people I love the most are not going to be with me. That is a big blow to me.
No matter how much of an “adventurous-and-ready-to-check-out-new-places” guy I seem to be, I am also someone who wilts like a rose in the evening when there’s no one to go back home to, when there’s no one to watch silly sentimental Bollywood movies with, when there’s no whose hands I could hold while walking.
What is home without loved ones?
Damn! Why can’t some decisions be easy, like for instance, to be happy or to feel sad?
PS: Happy new year friends!
