Moving on!!

Quite recently one of my friend's relocated to another city for work and I could hear that excitement, nervousness, wierdness in his voice over the phone...

That reminded me of everytime I had moved to a new place: the butterflies in my stomach and the nervousness I felt which I didn't admit to anyone... But now when I recollect, I realise that it wasn't mere anxiety, it was an anticipation of being in a new place, surrounded by new things/people. There was a strange rush of adrenaline, this feeling of giddiness that overwhelms you only when either you are in love or in a new environment...

Now being in a job where I get to travel quite a bit, I have to confess that its an amazing feeling to absorb new surroundings, learning something new and being with new people... I realise that every place is unique and gives you its typical vibes that makes one like or dislike a place. It takes an instant for me to predict whether I would enjoy being there or not... Right or wrong, its worth the risk for the novelty of it all!! :)

I so love traveling ... but unfortunately my job does not involve that :-|

nonetheless, weneva I am on the verge of moving to a new place, a sudden pinch is felt and all the gud/bad memories of this place start comin back ...

True! Although I'm not that brave to relocate and find out for myself. :P

Sam said...

@shraddha: Its not about bravery, its just about getting used to the idea.. ;)

I just happen to love new places, faces, etc. But when it comes to a new job, I can see how that could be a bit daunting. Been a long time, hope all is well!
