Moving Out, Moving in.. More Importantly Moving On...

I have not been very regular with my posts this month. I have been really busy with life. Trust me when I say that...!!! I have taken some big decisions without compromising on anything ( Touchwood). I guess I got a pretty good deal and I am thankful to the one above for that.
I am moving to a new house in a new location. No, It was never on the cards.
I had to take a decision and I decided to move in to a new place. Last month I wrote about how I feel like a stranger here in Delhi and yes it is still true.  The circumstances shaped up as such that I had to take a decision and thus the project "relocation" started.

The last 2 weeks were spent in house hunting, driving from one end of the city to the other.
I had almost given up on finding "My place" but just in that moment the broker suggested checking out one more flat before calling it a day.. It worked! The house with the right size, The right walls, the right kitchen, the right location and yeah the deal was sealed then and there.

I am busy setting up the house now. Ordering furniture, customizing it and waiting for it.
Packing up my stuff. Making lists, comparing deals online, running around to get the right paintings framed, checking out the kitschy knick knacks. Discarding the old clothes, I guess life will be a bit busy in the coming weeks. All these years while growing up both me and my sister used to pass on our suggestions to the parents every time they wanted to buy something. Of course like in every other household the children were not included in the decision making. We were always told that we knew nothing about the furniture, decor et al. Now when my time has come for such decisions I am fretting...!! I believe I will just do fine with time.

I don't know if I am here to stay. I have no clue what lies ahead in the next 3 months. There is a lot going on in life and yet at the same time I feel there's nothing. After relocating 4 times in 6 years and innumerable shifting of the houses,I have some experience to speak of.
Yes I don't handle relocations well because I get too attached not just with the things but also with the set up et al. Frankly I have no idea where I will end up in the next one year but
for now this house feels like home. It exudes warmth.It reminds me of  freshly brewed strong black coffee with home baked muffins. It reminds me of my crazy art and endless philosophies. It reminds me of the good old days of hoisting parties. It reminds me of weekend brunches. It feels like one of my very own.   I really want to move on in life because according to me that's the only way of growing up. I want to keep all the wonderful things from the past, find my rhythm and move on right away.

So, fingers crossed.. I hope all goes well..
I think I will be in a frenzy for a couple of weeks. I will be back with pictures, stories and more...
Yes, you can always reach out to me. @Unknown Anonymous left a comment on my last post and it really cheered me up and it actually made me post back to back..
Confession : I am a big hoarder. I can't discard things. It is just not in me to discard things.


  1. Sometimes you just write the beautiful ways of living The Life, like
    "the only way of growing up. I want to keep all the wonderful things from the past, find my rhythm and move on right away."

    Huge inspiration...:)

    PS: And me too cheered up finding place in your post:)

  2. @Unknown anonymous: Yeah I write so that I can implement them also at the same time. You practice what you preach after all :)

    And yes let this be our mutual admiration society. You cheer me up and I shall do the same..
    Stay Here!
