Change is for Good

I was in my late teens when I took my first job as Sales Executive in an MNC. Life has been a roller-coaster ride since then with work schedules, targets, reports, meetings, quarter-end pressures and what not.

Let me tell you, Sales is not an easy job! That too when you are selling to International Market and don’t see the person whom you are convincing to shed out dollars just by keeping faith on you! Yes, I believe most of the sales that happen depend on the relation the sales person has with the client. If the sales rep gains faith of the customer, sale is in! Product features, though very important, are secondary I think.

I was fortunate enough to get opportunities to work with people round the globe – whether it is US UK Europe APAC. Getting into conversation with people sitting miles and miles away and maintaining a true customer relation is something I really loved!

I enjoyed the diversity in my career with different set of people, companies, work cultures and ofcourse designations 😉

Life seemed well settled with a stable career and financial independence. I was happy to be able to achieve what I dreamt, something that every individual aspire for.

Still, there was one corner of my heart empty. Something was missing. Something that was far away from these so called “achievements” I had made.

That “something” was – time for myself, my hobbies, my interests. Since my first job, I couldn’t put together time to explore my own self. I couldn’t build on my interests which I really wanted to do, which gave me real happiness.

That was the time I decided to take a break – a break for myself, a break to discover the REAL me. 😎

I had a lot of things in my mind that I wished to do, I had even started couple of times in the past, but couldn’t continue for various reasons.

This break gave me that freedom to do what all I want, without any time schedule 😉

The first thing I started was – GARDENING

It’s a pleasure watching small plantlets growing, small buds turning into flowers. Those tiny colourful creatures give a very positive environment to you. You feel relaxed, happy, just by seeming them. I experienced it all 🙂

 

Second thing on the list was – READING BOOKS

In my college days, I used to read a lot of fiction. I love it. It was time to start again. Reading a story as if you are the character in it, visualizing the scenes in your eyes and enjoying that mood is something which gave me a pleasure 🙂

And yes, another objective behind this was to sharpen my vocabulary skills!

 

The next one was – CONNECTING with friends -old and new via facebook and other social avenues.. Ooops! I confess, this never stopped despite the tight work schedule 😛 But yaa, now I take time to speak with them as well, not just chat 🙂

And now, the most important one – BLOGGING

I had this thought rounding my mind since long, but I never listened to myself in penning down my experiences, my feelings. Though I started long back, I was never a consistent performer here. That spirit of action was missing.

Thanks to my friend Sanjeev sir, who started his own blog and inspired me with his regular posts and variety in the topics he chose to write. A lot to learn from him, this is just a start I made 🙂 Thanks sir!

Well, life is cool now 😎  I am happy doing what I want. There is no empty corner. I have also changed my career stream from Sales to Project Management. This again is a part of self-exploration and I am hopeful its all for good. 🙂

CHANGE IS FOR GOOD 🙂 🙂

The word that best describes me is “Dreamer”. I dream a lot and I believe in fulfilling my dreams. My dreams vary from eating Pani Puri at a stall to becoming an Entrepreneur and I love all my dreams. I always want to be the best in whatever I do whether it’s professional, social or personal because one of my dreams is to be “different” from rest of the crowd. I love all the roles I play in my life and enjoy being a loving wife, a responsible daughter, a caring sister and a friendly companion. I sometimes become poetic as well I believe life is an opportunity to unfold our hidden talents, its a journey towards fulfillment!

  1. Thanks for the kind words Aparna. As you know my foray into blogging is also recent but I can relate to your reasons for blogging. Somewhere there is a feeling that there is so much out there to explore & time is passing by without us making an effort to plunge in. So let’s keep egging each other on & here’s to many more posts to come.
