Another year, another risk

Dear Diary,

Today is the last day of Tarun in our company. He quits to join his Dad’s business.

A big change for us. After long hours of speculations, of thinking and re-thinking, we finally reached to the stage where we decided that it is the right thing to do.

It was not easy. It will not be easy pulling this through either. It still seems like following a mad-dream. Like I’m delusional with all the inspirational quotes I’ve read and have become too idealistic to realize that the world and its realities are way different. I don’t know what is. I know that I want to follow my dreams. I want to take up the challenge before realizing that I’m incapable of achieving it. I would rather fail at it than sit believing that I would have failed had I tried.

Who knows my limits? Do you know? Do I know? I think no one knows unless one tries.

So, I supported my husband in his decision of following his dreams. Of taking this risk. Of trying what he so passionately wanted to do. And, if after trying, he realizes that it was not the right thing for him, it was not the right decision, we’ll take up our lives from there. We;ll rebuild. Of course, a lot of it is calculated risk. I’ve made some savings. I’ve gone back to full-time to maximize my income while he takes the plunge. We have chalked out our finances, planned our EMIs. Of course, we’re doing whatever our practical minds are telling us to. But, with all that, we are taking a big huge leap of faith. And none of the preparations can diminish the risk we’re taking.
And, I hope with all my might, that God will give us success.

Big day for us. For my family. For the union between me and Tarun. Bless us, dear Lord. Coz, it all is you, in the end.

PS: It has been six yrs since I got married, and none of the year has been dull. Each year, there is a new challenge, a new risk that we both take. 🙂 Never a dull moment in our lives, I guess. Thoroughly enjoying the roller-coaster.
