When I quit my job to join my husband as he got relocated by his company to London, though excited for the Big Move, I was very vary of the fact that I'll not be earning, and as my husband teased me much to my dislike - that I would be joining him as a 'dependent'. London being one of the most expensive cities in the world, being a 'dependent' (that's what it says on my Visa, and oh how strongly I've come to detest this word!) gave me the jitters and much anxious nights.
On the plus side I thought, "Hey! I'll have more time to write, blog, work on the close-to-my-heart personal project & travel" But you see, 'thinking' and actually 'doing' are two words poles apart. The latter needs action, and the only action that I've taken on my part is making my to-do lists, striking them off and rewriting them again. So, this post, to help me get off my butt!
To give myself a little credit (I do need self motivation now & then and now!), it has only been close to 3 weeks and this is my second blogpost since, so yay! Also with the help of an understanding and passionate partner our project is running at the desired pace (although when I think of the financial investment it calls for I get the jitters I was talking about earlier, Sigh!)
But there is still a lot to do, and while a tiny voice in my head says "Relax and enjoy your break", the other nagging voice cuts off saying "Don't while away your time; time is money!"
Well, Aren't I in a rambling mood today, phew! If you've stayed with me till now & still reading on, thanks a ton! Would not want to bore you more, but below are few exciting things on my to do list that I'd like to share.
Next two days will see me at Business Start up, a business exhibition for start ups where I hope to learn few trade tricks from business experts. Their speaker list boasts of UK's smartest minds, from millionaires to entrepreneurs to motivational speakers, and I am ready with my notepad and pen.
Second, the Walking Writer workshop sounds so heavenly, just the thing I have been dying to do! The timing is perfect as we would have by then shifted to our abode which is very much close to the happening. Can't wait to meet fellow writers! :)
Anyone care to join?
And now back to my reading, trying-to-write and editing regime. Thank you for being such sweet patient listeners. Love!
