I am not done.. NOT YET!

I am just back at work today. My first day at work and I am already thinking of where should I go next! Surely, the wanderlust has caught on me and is not letting me go off so easily. Well coming back to topic, I feel a little underwhelmed. Not that I am unhappy with my current job. In fact, I have planned and envisioned every detail of my current job. But still, it seems life is devoid of something. I feel restless and my feet are itchy! Then again- there are people all around me- I see them quitting their jobs and traveling. They are selling all their owned items and living up their corporate jobs to volunteer somewhere abroad. I have people around me, actually only one @srinistuff, who wants us to live the life of a nomad someday. I agree too, with him. But I certainly don’t feel ready. If you follow #TTOT on Twitter, you’ll get streams of travelers, travel bloggers and veteran nomads, whose voice will thud in tandem- “There is no right time. The time is now.” Well- may be. But for now- I seem to be inclined more towards, what Thomas Edison once famously quoted.

” There is time for everything.”

So far now, I am going to continue my job. But I haven’t given up on my dream. I have decided to juggle between two balls- love for my job and love for my travel. Well it can be done easily. If I do simple math here, this is how it’s going to look:

Weekends in a year   – 52*2 (Saturdays and Sundays)
Number of public Holidays       – 12
Number of Leaves at work       – 25
Total                                        – 141
Now- 136 chances of traveling, 136 days of living the dream. And the remaining days- I live the life to continue gaining the experience of what the corporate life holds for me. After all for a seeker, every day is learning, every moment is learning! Why shy away from living every bit of what the world sends out our way? Is it bravery? Am I coward? Well may be or may be. All I feel is I am not done.. NOT YET!
P.S- I am just back from a weekend wildlife safari and I am planning my next weekend getaway! After all, where there’s a will, there’s a way 🙂
nature, I am not done.. NOT YET, Feet on the map

After all, nature teaches us, there’s time for everything, every season

  1. Good attitude! Seeing 136 days (more or less) makes everything seem a little more hopeful- that’s 1/3 of the year! (:
