Nothing has stopped me from picking every opportunity to wax eloquent about how much I thank my lucky stars over and over for giving me a life in Goa. Iv done it on this blog, on the other blog, on facebook, in person and Iv done it till people have begged me to stop, and get over it already. I really cant help myself though. Goa has been a beyond special. Even today, so many months into our move here, several times a week, different instances, mundane and spectacular, make me pause and wonder just how much my life has changed.
This move will always be close to my heart. Because life as I know it, really began for us here in Goa. It is here, that I discovered facets to myself that were hitherto hidden beneath many layers, waiting to be unraveled. I discovered a home-maker. I discovered an interest and love for cooking. I discovered my love for solitude. I discovered the real joys of being married the man I love. I realized how precious time really is.
Life in Goa has given me time, above all else. Iv had plenty of time. Time to choose what I want to do, decide how I want to do it, live life at my own pace, spend days doing nothing if I please, spend days reading, watching television, painting even! I am always overcome by a feeling of wonder at how this has all fallen into place for us. I try, but I don’t have the words to thank the husband for his courage. To see what I see, to think for us both, to take the brave decisions we did, and to come out here and live the life we believe in.
Since March this year, I have basked in the luxury of enjoying this life. I could not think of a better time for this to have happened to me. But after much thought and deliberation, I have decided that perhaps its time to move on. And no, I don’t mean I will be giving up this way of life or leaving Goa. Slight alterations will be made. Reprogramming of life, so to speak. Rescheduling of the everyday routine. Im ready to give more of my time and energies. Into something more productive, more structured. Something that will give me definite returns – monetarily and satisfaction-wise. Its time to get busy. More updates soon..
